Doctor Who The Rings of Akhaten Trailer

Doctor Who The Rings of Akhaten Trailer

Saturday 6th April 6:15pm – 7pm BBC One

Having found himself a new companion in the shape of Clara Oswald, the Doctor asks where she wants to go first – and her request for somewhere awesome takes the pair to the rings of the planet Akhaten, inhabited by all manner of amazing creatures.

Clara meets the young queen, who is about to take part in a ceremony called the Festival of Offerings – but what begins as a happy sing-song soon turns very grim. Matt Smith and Jenna-Louise Coleman star.

    Ok, now I sound like a tit regards comment about Sydney Newman. I assumed the leaf was a maple leaf, hence the day one Canadian connection. I was wrong.

    I just noticed that the leaf on the Rings of Akhaten poster was not the one from the 101 places to see book, as it doesn’t have three points. If you look at the new gallery for the ROA, it looks like she is threatening something with it, as it is from a different world.

    When I went to Edinburgh in Scotland a few days ago, I saw loads of police boxes! They were a bit wider than your average TARDIS, but they were still awesome!

    Hello folks, came across this site by pure accident. Liking what I am seeing so far. Yes, I am a newbie. I was born aprox 9 days before Jon Pertwee’s first appearance in Spearhead From Space. That makes me 43, I guess, lol.

    It looks like regeneration energy but it won’t be or he will redirect it like he did in ‘The Stolen Earth/Journey’ s End’ ’cause he is in the other episodes.
