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.
