What’s in the extended Doctor Who series 6 promo?

Spoilers here: if you don’t want to know what to expect in the promo for Doctor Who series 6 that’s attached to the series premiere, then look away now…

There are spoilers below for Doctor Who series 6.

You’ll have to forgive me here, as I was scribbling like mad as the new promo for Doctor Who series 6 played at the end of the press launch of the first two episodes yesterday evening. Hopefully, I got the key things down, but don’t read on if you don’t want spoilers. And if you do read on, please don’t go and spoil the show for others!

Firstly, I should point out that a lot of the content of the trailer was included in the preview released by the BBC last week.

What wasn’t? Well, there are pirates, a swashbuckling Amy Pond, Amy in white, some strange creatures with white globe-like heads, a bit of James Corden getting, er, ‘close’ to the Doctor, and a very firm-sounding Rory.

And there were Cybermen. Definitely Cybermen. Although there were Cybermen in the trailer last year, too, and they only turned up as part of a collective at the end of the series. It was the reimagined Cybermen in the trailer, too, and not the old ones. I’m sure I caught a throwback to The Beast Below in there, as well, but my eyes may have been playing tricks.

Make of all of that what you will!
