The BBC has confirmed that a new official trailer for “The Day of the Doctor” — one that contains actual footage from the 50th anniversary story itself — will premiere tomorrow, Saturday, Nov. 9, at 8 p.m. on BBC One.
No word yet on whether our friends at BBC America here in the colonies will simulcast the trailer, as they did the announcement of Peter Capaldi as the 12th Doctor.
The Beeb also released four more new images from the anniversary story, including Joanna Page playing Queen Elizabeth I. Remember when David Tennant’s 10th Doctor told Ood Sigma that he married Good Queen Bess way back in “The End of Time Part 1”? And how she hated him and ordered her guards to kill him in “The Shakespeare Code”? Sounds like fun!
Attention, fans of MARVEL’S AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.! Get thee to a cinema forthwith to view Thor: The Dark World, which opens today — because the Nov. 19 episode of AoS is going to pick up on plot threads left over from the movie.
According to Entertainment Weekly, the AoS episode, called “The Well,” most likely will not feature any Thor cast members (barring a surprise cameo), but rather some “connective tissue” in the storyline.
Check out the official synopsis from ABC:
“In the aftermath of the events chronicled in the feature film Marvel’s Thor: The Dark World, Coulson and the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. pick up the pieces – one of which threatens to destroy a member of the team.”
Putting this together with what we’ve all seen in the various trailers, it looks like there will be lots of Asgardian/Elf technology expended in all the fighting, so Agent Phil Coulson’s team most likely comes across something dangerous in some wreckage while cleaning up after the battle.
With a lot of the film’s action set in Greenwich, England, it seems like a natural setup for a crossover with TORCHWOOD, doesn’t it? If only that reconstituted UK team was still in action, that is…
