Spoiler alert, of course.
What did you all think of The End of Time? Discuss! Remember, if you are feeling Tennant nostalgia, here’s the Daily Tennant tag on my tumblr.
I’m quite excited about the next series – series 5 or series 31 or the 2010 series or whatever they’re calling it now (it looks like they’re not continuing with that series 1 garbage). Here are the two trailers for the next series starring Matt Smith at the Eleventh Doctor and Karen Gillan as Amy Pond. The first is more traditionally trailerish, the second is, well, something else!
The Doctor is standing in front of the Tardis.
The Doctor: Okay, what have you got for me this time?
Lots of flashes of Doctorish activity: leaping about, explosions, he punches someone (!), he kisses someone, etc. There’s a vampire, a Weeping Angel, a Dalek! He screams ‘Geronimo’ as Amy just screams. More flashes of activity, Amy’s eyes turning towards us, more activity, the Doctor’s eyes doing the same. Then, on a black screen, in blue writing, ‘COMING SPRING 2010’ – Amy’s shocked face – ‘THE END’ – a shot of the Doctor – ‘IS JUST THE BEGINNING’ – the Doctor shooting a gun. There’s a black screen, and then the Doctor leans in to tell someone we only see from behind, ‘trust me, I’m the Doctor.’ As we fade back into a black screen and the new logo, the letters DW shaped like a Tardis, are lit up by the light on top twice, only to fade out again until we’re presented with a similarly-lit ‘2010’. Then the new logo again with the similarly-styled words ‘Doctor Who’. Then ‘bbc.co.uk/doctorwho’ appears on the screen.
The Doctor and Amy are lying on grass, looking up at the stars.
Amy: How about that one?
The Doctor: Bit [?] up close.
Amy: That one’s flickering.
The Doctor: Yeah, sorry, thought I’d fixed that.
Amy [turning to him]: Who are you?
The Doctor [turning to her]: I’m the Doctor.
Amy: Doctor who?
A sudden noise and he turns to his other side. Light starts coming out of cracks in the ground. They’re lifted up into the air, holding hands, as a circle of light explodes under them. The circle of light changes into the swirling blue vortex and they’re sucked back in as Amy screams. They’re torn apart, but manage to grab hold of each others’ hands as they’re sucked down the vortex tunnel.
The Doctor: Hold on tight!
A close up of Amy’s bewildered face. They look to one side as we hear Dalek noises. They look around as various aliens the Doctor has fought before appear. They grab hold of each others’ shoulders.
The Doctor: Trust me.
Amy: What? Why?
He lets go of her. She screams his name and she tumbles back into the vortex. He turns to face a Weeping Angel, which explodes, possibly due to one of the balls of light flying through the vortex. The Doctor and Amy come back together in a shower of rocks and light.
The Doctor (v.o.): All of time and space. Everywhere and anywhere. Every star that ever was.
In a flash of light, we’re back on the grass.
The Doctor: Where do you want to start?
The grass is suddenly torn apart again and there’s an alien head in front of us (a Silurian I think).
The logo comes on screen and
a voiceover announces: Doctor Who. The journey begins this Easter on BBC One.
as the BBC One logo, ‘Easter 2010’ and ‘bbc.co.uk/doctorwho’ come on screen.
