Doctor Who TV Trailer So is It Bessie?

Doctor Who TV Trailer So is It Bessie?

The TV trailer for The Name of The Doctor appears to a car much like Bessie passing Clara – She has said she has met the Doctor more that 3 times so could this be another occasion.

    No, I actually tried to find it but I found nothing, I think people are smart enough to keep it to themselves

    I would love to see Bessie back in a future DW story I preffered Bessie to the Whomobile Jon Pertwee’s era.

    That was me who said she wasn’t his wife anymore. She’s not his wife because they were married in an alternate universe and when everything reverted back to normal they were no longer (officially) married. and yes, this is River Song post Library, Moffat said so 😀

    In reality River Song is the Doctors wife so in some way she’ll always be a part of his life.
    But perhaps this isn’t the River from after the library (although you’re right it looks a lot like she is) and maybe this is where she learns the Doctors name…
    I do like Alex Kingston (the actress) but her character isn’t being used to show the Doctor in a different way. She does just pop up for Mofffats benefit of writing her.

    what cameo

  • the astronaut of death

    May 13th, 2013 - 8:04pm

    I think people already have

  • Dalek: the Supreme

    May 13th, 2013 - 7:21pm

    Yes, but it was just a cameo.

  • Dalek: the Supreme

    I’ve actually felt the opposite. During the Tennant era, the Doctor seemed too human to me, and his holier-than-thou-art attitude got on my nerves. The only companion I was attached to was Martha, and the Daleks kept coming back every season to the point where I actually was annoyed by my favorite monster. Smith’s more alien performance reminds of Patrick Troughton (My first Doctor), and the changes made to the show, including the New Paradigm Daleks, drew me back in. Just my opinion.

    No, just no. I’m sorry, but it would make no sense in terms of continuity. River Song died in the library, as Alex Kingston, so she can’t have regenerated. Another thing, the Doctor’s always been a man. I have no problem with girls, mind you, just gender changing. It’s weird and disgusting, especially for a family show like Doctor Who.

    If they do kill off a member of the Victorian gang, I think it should mark their last appearance, at least for a while. I don’t hate them at all, in fact, I find them very entertaining,it’s just that they’ve been used 3 years in a row, and could really use a break.

  • Dalek: the Supreme

    I don’t especially love or hate River Song, but I do think she should make her last appearance. All she needs after the revelation of who she is is an episode leading into her death.

    P.s that last comment about the tree image being the same, that was me.

    and anyway, the back of bessie has the black material top piece on the back of it, in the five doctors, whereas in the images above she does not

    Ok so maybe the tree is the same from the scene where pertwee is taken by the time scoop, but at no point do we see bessie drive past that close or from that angle. The tree image may have been re-used from the scene, but not bessie. That’s been reconstructed.

    it’s from the five doctors

  • Tardis’nt

    May 13th, 2013 - 4:41pm

    well that is a background seen in the five doctors, so…………

  • crazy guy

    May 13th, 2013 - 4:18pm

    hey guys if you remember about the episode being leaked the BBC have promised us fans that if no one who has seen it leaks anything they will give us a special clip of the 11 and tenth together from the anniversary special. i hope no one spoils it for us

    I cant wait for this scene. Hopefully we’ll see her walking past old doctors, or in background of a memorable 20th century Who scene. BRILLIANT!

    It does, but i think they actually filmed bessie driving past. The quality of the image is too good to be of a pertwee episode.

    looks like clara has been super imposed into that image, my theory is that she has paced herself through out the doctors time stream to save him.

    Strax doesnt die, it is Riversong that goes. if you look at claras clothes she is wearing different companions clothes. as bessie passes her she is wearing sarah janes clothes.

    Children’s programme featuring a car not unlike Bessie.

    The car was in Bourton on the water motor museum, not sure if its still there

    Look at her outfit on the pictures, it looks very 1970’s to me so maybe she has met the doctor before maybe she met them just before they regenerate to save them if anything goes wrong

  • the doctor

    May 12th, 2013 - 8:21pm
