So the trailer for the second half of the sixth series of the new Doctor Who is up and we have a date: August 27th. And with the trailer live, you can be certain every single bit of info we can glean from it is important and a clue and is simply Moffat screwing with our heads. But that’s part of the fun, yes?
I, Doctor Who novice that I am, have taken a moment to give the trailer some intense scrutiny and share with you both the trailer and some items you may have missed–but I with my eagle eyes did not. That’s after the break. Thanks to Rob Levy for letting me know the vid has been posted to begin with.
PLEASE NOTE: my analysis is so stunningly accurate it will no doubt contain spoilers. You have been warned.
00:07 After hearing concerns that the mid-season cliffhanger might have rocked less ass than expected, this is clearly a nod by Moffat that the second half will crank the series up to 11. Also, if you look closely you will see that room number sign is clearly made of chocolate. A clue? Or a joke by craft services?
00:10 A cameo by Peter Pettigrew, played by Verne Troyer. Didn’t see that coming.
00:12 The Doctor wakes up something. It could be A) Jabba the Hutt, B) a Navigator from the movie Dune or C) an extremely hungover Skeksis.
00:27 Man, there is nothing funny to be said about that. That’s just freaking creepy.
00:28 Someone has figured out that the Silence are defeated if placed in barbicide. Well done. I theorized that months ago.
00:29 This is a red herring: these Weeping Angels are actually made of marzipan.
00:30 Not content to give us Angels, we are also getting, in order, the Jigsaw Killer of Earth-2, that doll from the movie Magic, robot acne that turns into a cannon, Loki as portrayed by Michael Berryman and The Minotaur loose in the Overlook Hotel.
00:37 Amy and Rory fight robot ninjas on the set of THX 1138.
00:44 The Cybermen are defeated by sticking them in a giant microwave oven and setting it on high.
