The Name of The Doctor Next Time / TV Trailers

The Name of The Doctor Next Time / TV Trailers

Clara receives a letter summoning her to a mysterious meeting, where she is given a message for the Doctor.

The meaning is uncertain, but when an enemy strikes the Time Lord is left with no choice but to travel to the one place in time and space he should never go – into a deadly trap that threatens to unravel his past, present and future.

Matt Smith and Jenna-Louise Coleman star in what promises to be a thrilling climax, with Alex Kingston returning as River Song

  • These are the SFX teasers

    May 12th, 2013 - 11:16am

    • The precredit teaser’s an absolute blast, a Moffat montage with some nods to the past.

    • The kids are back… but have no fear, in one scene only do they appear.

    • There’s a souffle in the mix, and an old enemy with new tricks.

    • Someone’s tired of the Taj Mahal, someone’s there but not there at all.

    • Rhyming couplets are everywhere, like a creepy version of Rupert Bear…

    (But we’ll gladly concede that it’s a gimmick we’re doing a bad job trying to mimic… so we’ll stop)

    • The Doctor says something he said in “Castrovalva”.

    • There’s a very uncharacteristic moment for this Eleventh Doctor… and a very powerful one because of it.

    • Something’s bigger on the outside.

    • There’s some outrageous regional stereotyping (but they’ll probably take it as a compliment).

    • The TARDIS makes a very different kind of landing (and she’s not in a good mood).

    • Somebody makes some hollow threats.

    • The monsters-of-the-week have some very interesting abilities.

    • The Doctor’s first appearance is blindfolded.

    • A monster’s name is used an expletive (we bet it catches on).

    • There’s a new form of time travel.

    • A letter makes Clara all dreamy.

    • There’s a film – the title of which begins with Z – that has certain similarities to some important moments here.

    • The preview copy didn’t have the final scene to avoid any spoilers getting out, so we’re going to guess that the big twist involves Adric, Kamelion, Mel Bush and the Kandyman. (Or maybe not.)

    • And it’s great. Well, three of us on the team loved it to bits anyway.

    I have a theory in this episode river song dies and the doctor gives her a regeneration but she regenerates into a young boy but he is unconscious. the doctor knows who this boy is and he must not tell anyone .the doctor takes the boy in the tardis and takes him to gallifrey and puts him in orphanage the time lords ask for the boys name and he says the doctor. the time lords ask ,doctor who, the dr smiles and goes off in the tardis

    the doctor now knows his name at first he did never knew it but if he remembers his mind will burn and die and the doctor now knows his name and he is now going to trenserlor to accept his fate and go to the fields of trenzelor and answer the question

    the silent: doctor who ,doctor who, DOCTOR WHO!
    the doctor: river song…..

      That would make no sense. River Song died in the Library in her Alex Kingston incarnation. She is NOT the Doctor. Besides, that would mean the Doctor married himself. On a family show. Ewww!

      she didn’t die in the library, her consciousness was uploaded into the data bank.

    it looks really good, although they may have slightly given away the secret of clara. and also, what was she wearing?! i really hope it isn’t a let down, because as this series goes, it could be.

      River died in the library. How can she be alive if she had died earlier? Probably she does this, then goes to the library

    • Great

      I don’t think the writer morrfat has thought what he wants do as there are lots of things he has gone back on. Like straxs dying ( fainting )

    So we’ve got Strax, Jenny, Vastra, River, Trenzalore, Bessie, it’s called The Name of the Doctor and a return of Dr. Simeon (a character I share a name with and claim is named after me! 😛 (I met Moffat a couple of years ago and he said I had a nice name!))

    How am I going to work this week??

      remember, the silence are not a species; they are a religious order. so they could be in it

    Looks amazing this is going to be so good. But my only worry is that it will be rushed and not well explained. Still I can’t wait. Who else is scared to watch because it could give away everything?!
