Old-Timey ‘Crimson Horror’ Clip

The best part of this clip is the pseudo-newsreel feel; the sepia tone and ersatz scratches on the image — just like old film stock.

“The Crimson Horror” features Dame Diana Rigg facing off against Matt Smith‘s Doctor, and it looks very atmospheric. Just look at the Doctor and Clara arriving in a foggy street in Yorkshire in 1893! I question the wisdom of putting two scary episodes so close together, but all I’m really looking for is a cracking good story, so…

The clip makes a couple of fun references to an old companion longtime fans will remember:

“The Crimson Horror” will air Saturday night at 8 o’clock on BBC America.
