A Gallery From “The Bells of Saint John”

Here are a bunch of lurvely pics from the “Bells of Saint John” episode of DOCTOR WHO, which airs March 30, ushering in the second half of series seven. I’m not sure how I feel about the Doctor dressed in… plumb? Purple? But the style is pretty good.

Of course we get some nice images of the Doctor (Matt Smith) and Clara (Jenna-Louise Coleman), as well as actress Celia Imrie.

I don’t know about you, but I absolutely cannot wait for 7b to begin!

I Don’t Hear Any Bells…

But, be that as it may, this killer clip from “The Bells of Saint John” — the first of the eight episodes to come in the second half of series seven of DOCTOR WHO — really builds the tension. This is an actual scene from the episode, not a trailer.

With the Doctor (Matt Smith) and Clara (Jenna-Louise Coleman) practically tumbling through an out-of-control passenger jet, the mystery of what could be happening really hits home. Why is everyone unconscious? What’s in the wi-fi? And how funny is it that the Doctor can pilot any number of various types of spacecraft, but cannot land an Earth aeroplane?

Look for the Doctor and the mystery that is Clara on March 30.

DOCTOR WHO: Two Terrific Trailers!

Wow, a lot went on in the Whoniverse while I was briefly out of commission. Some massive catching up to do! The BBC have released an awesome trailer for 7b — the second half of the current seventh season — and so has BBC America! The best part is that the trailers have lots and lots of different footage, so it is totally worth watching both clips.

First up, the BBC trailer:

And now, the trailer the Yanks at BBCA produced:

Yikes! What in the universe could frighten the Doctor? Get thee behind a couch!

One thing is for sure: All this footage makes it look like we’re in for a really wild ride beginning March 30!
