This Extended Doctor Who Series 5 Trailer Will Get You Hooked

Doctor Who Matt Smith

Here’s a magic trick. In 55-seconds, I will get any Doctor Who fan excited for the upcoming fifth series, starring Matt Smith as the new Doctor. This new extended trailer, released by BBC for audiences in the UK (note the date and time, which doesn’t apply to BBC America) is the most exciting spot we’ve seen yet. The visual effects look upgraded, Smith shows himself to be charming and witty; and for the first time, we get a little bit of Karen Gillan as the Doctor’s new companion, Amy Pond. If you think she’ll work just fine, I’d say we agree.

Here’s the official synopsis for season five’s premiere episode, “The Eleventh Hour”:

With his TARDIS in ruins, the newly-regenerated Doctor with the help of Amy Pond must save the world in less than twenty minutes from galactic policemen known as the Atraxi.

And now, the new extended trailer. Doctor Who will air on BBC America starting Saturday, April 17th at 9/8c.
