DOCTOR WHO Series 10 Trailer Teases the Flood & the Movellans
Merry Christmas, Whovians! A new Series 10 trailer at last!
Following the transmission of the 2016 Doctor Who Christmas Special, "The Return of Doctor Mysterio," the first trailer premiered for the long-awaited Series Ten, which airs sometime in spring of 2017.
The 50-second teaser trailer opens at a university, with Bill (Pearl Mackie) introducing herself in the form of a voiceover. "I'm Bill, I serve chips," she says, as we see the Twelfth Doctor (Peter Capaldi) delivering a lecture to a group of students. "He's a professor, or a lecturer, or as I call him...Doctor What. And now we go everywhere..."
We see Bill's first reaction to the TARDIS interior, as she remarks "It's like a..."
"Spaceship," interrupts the Doctor.
"...kitchen," finishes Bill.
Bill unloads a series of questions at the Doctor, including "Which way is Earth?" and "Can I use the toilet?" as we then see fleeting images of Bill and the Doctor in Victorian era garb, a bald, blue alien (perhaps the same species to Dorium Maldovar?),
"...any space...any time..." continues Bill's voiceover as we see a woman with a face dripping water like the Flood from "The Waters of Mars" along with a pair emoji-faced robots. "...and now I see everything differently."
As we see the Dalek from the "Friend from the Future" trailer from April, Bill asks the Doctor where they are. "Basically," replies the Doctor as we see what appears to be a Movellan from "Destiny of the Daleks" blasted into a bulkhead, "in the middle of a war...and it's not as bad as it sounds."
We cut to a different scene of the Doctor, Bill and Nardole (Matt Lucas) wearing some form of spacesuits. "I'm the Doctor," says the Time Lord, "I will save all your lives and when I do, you will spend of the rest of them wondering who I was."
We then see a suited figure jumping into a hole of ice-covered water and the Doctor punching out someone in the Victorian era.
"Are you out of your mind?" asks someone in a similar spacesuit.
"Yes, completely," replies the Doctor, "but that's not a recent thing."
