Earlier this month, we brought you a British trailer for the upcoming season of “Doctor Who.” Today, BBC America has released their own take, which you can check out in the player below.
Set to premiere in both the UK and the US on September 1st at 9:00pm ET/PT, the premiere episode, “Asylum of the Daleks,” is the first of five brand new back-to-back episodes set to air over the next few weeks. Join the Doctor, his companions Amy and Rory (aka the Ponds) and numerous friends on their latest escapades through space and time where they puzzle an unexpected invasion of Earth, save a spaceship full of dinosaurs, don Stetsons in a Wild Wild West adventure and are even kidnapped by the Doctor’s oldest foe. The explosive series concludes with Amy and Rory’s heart-breaking farewell – a race against time through the streets of Manhattan.
We have, I think, our biggest range of stories ever,” says lead writer and executive producer Steven Moffat of the new season. “We’ve got the return of the Daleks and the Weeping Angels – both of them poll-topping Doctor Who adversaries – in cracking new stories, we’ve got Dinosaurs on a Spaceship (it’s what you’ve always wanted), we’ve got a glorious western with a Cyborg Gunslinger, the most unusual invasion Earth story ever, and location shooting in New York for the Pond finale.
Check out full titles and synopses for the first three episodes of the season beneath the trailer, but be warned of potential spoilers!
