EW has the exclusive first look at this trailer. We’ll post an embeddable version to this blog later but for now…
Ok, technically there is absolutely no new information contained in this fifteen second video. The new season of Doctor Who returns March 30th. There will be eight new episodes. We’re pretty sure that you know this already and if not, give this text a click.
… that hasn’t stopped us from watching this several times over just to gaze at the new time vortex from the new opening credits and to listen to Murray Gold’s score again and again and again.
Point is: don’t watch the video if you’re looking for new info. Or watch the video if you want to stare at the details of space over and over again.
So we’re glad that we can finally announce this as well:
2013 is DOCTOR WHO’s 50th Anniversary. Each month, BBC AMERICA takes the TARDIS back in time with Brand New Specials on all eleven Doctors.
Don’t miss the Premiere of the first DOCTOR WHO: THE DOCTORS REVISITED Special with First Doctor WILLIAM HARTNELL *** Sunday Jan 27 at 9pm ET *** only on BBC America.
Take an in-depth look at the first incarnation of the truly timeless Time Lord - and don’t miss the first glimpses of the TARDIS and the classic foe, the Daleks. Complete with exclusive interviews with Lead Writer and Executive Producer STEVEN MOFFAT & more!
Saturday (January 12) at 10/9c on BBCAmerica
This is a great interview because Joshua asks questions that no one else will ask Steven such as:
"Would you ever rejoin Twitter?" and "Do you enjoy traumatizing fans?"
He also gets his dad to talk about the 50th Anniversary.
Go visit his comment thread to suggest questions for the next interview.
We’re sorry. We’re so so sorry but we had a failure in our queue last week. We’re just posting this today.
If the video doesn’t work, click here to watch it on the BBC.co.uk page!
Press play to be slightly spoiled two days before Christmas.
HAPPY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE! (With love from all of us at the DWFO!)

The next piece will be “Amy’s Suite” - featuring some classic Amy themes as well as one or two surprises. To take part, look out for instructions in the upcoming promotional video.
How well do Doctor Who's Matt Smith and Jenna Coleman know each other? Exceptionally well, if our afternoon of Christmas shopping is the true indicator. We took the pair to Manhattan's ornament-bonanza store It's Always Christmas in the City and set them off to pick out hyper-specific “bits and bobs” that fit their co-star's personality. Even though they haven't been working together very long — Coleman is officially the Doctor's new companion beginning with the show's Christmas special, airing Dec. 25 on BBC America — they succeeded in surprising each other with some very thoughtful (and strange) choices.
Matt was obsessed with the Gummi Bears cartoon. That is all.
