The First Promo For DOCTOR WHO Season/Series 7 Is Here!!

Published at: March 26, 2012, 6:37 a.m. CST by merrick

Merrick here...

Along with news that Amy and Rory's previously announced departure from DOCTOR WHO will occur this Season/Series during a Weeping Angels episode set in New York City, the first promo for S7 came out of  the Official DOCTOR WHO Convention in Cardiff over the past weekend.  

A shaky cam version of this promo has been online for a few days now, but here's the real thing, bright and shiny, newly issued by BBC.  The reel appears to center chiefly on the Ben Browder-guesting Western episode we'd recently heard the series was shooting in Spain - which makes sense as this episode likely represents the lion's share of available S7 material to date (they haven't been shooting all that long).  

Here's the first promo for S7, which transmits five new episodes later this year, followed by a Christmas Special which will introduce the Doctor's new companion (Jenna-Louise Coleman).  8 further episode will air next year.  DOCTOR WHO will return to BBC One and BBC America.

    A bit of a stale cracker for a starving man, but I'll take what scraps they throw me during The Void. ...I wonder Why the Ponds are back. I mean, they were a couple years into what looked like a very happy and domestic settled life, with the cheery house and the Peticore perfume thing. A shame they took the bait again, especially if Moff is a cad and does them dirty in New York.

    by Jeff Myers

    When I was young every TV serial did an episode set in the 'Wild West' when their ideas or budget had ran out. Trek, Batman, even The Prisoner. The reason being that every film studio had a Western Town set.

    Smith is a good actor/Dr and has proved it in the past problem is he is given shit scripts to work with.

    by sunspot_mike

    I believe I've already done my defending of The Gunfighters in a DocBack last year, but its reputation as the worst episode ever was redeemed by the time we hit the late 80's and we actually got the worst Doctor Who ever. And while it sucks to wait an extra six months for the show this year, I don't see why people are making a big deal about it. It won't be as bad as the wait we just endured for Mad Men and that's not as bad as the last season of The Sopranos. Christ, that was like two years.

    The Doctor Who Convention

    by moody by nature

    Just back home from the official convention yesterday - had an amazing time - my head is still spinning from getting the chance to shake hands with Matt, and push shiny buttons and fiddle with wacky doodahs on the actual Tardis set. Surreal indeed. The Grand Moff remains firmly tight-lipped regarding multi-doc shenanigans around the 50th anniversary... Though this seemed to be a popular question amongst the crowd...

    Getting Ben Browder for the western episode is a stroke of genius

    by DoctorTom

    I'm not surprised that there's only 2 episodes in the coming soon trailer - it's not like they've had the time to do that many more episodes. It's not like they're going to include any shot scenes with Jenna Louise Coleman. Could you imagine the uproar there's be if they showed one of the past Doctors in a Coming Soon trailer? (Then, when they got to the story, we'd probably find out that it's just the Hologram vocal interface system looking like a past Doctor.)

    I miss Farscape

    by Huelya

    and seeing Ben Browder in this, make me miss it even more.

  • The story's what matters. Not counting modern day Utah, this is the first time in 46 years that Doctor Who is going back to a Western setting, and the first time around they were doing a purely historical adventure. I don't recall seeing any cyborgs running around in the Hartnell story. Wait for it to be released so we can actually see the quality of the story before complaining about it being crap.

    sort of uneven tone

    by Dreamfasting

    Some great-looking shots, but as a trailer is comes out feeling a little cluttered compared to previous years' teasers ... still we're a long, long way away from the new episodes so any glipse is really just a bonus. So is the second half of this series going to be counted as the anniversary milestone? Or will they be leaving that for the next fall?

    I suspect it was put together so quickly so as to have something special to show the fans at the convention. That would explain the tone, use of early episodes, and even the lack of visual fx shots. It seemed to me more of a taster.

    Indeed. I had hoped someone at the convention might ask The Moff his opinion on MOV or Aintitcool... I certainly wasn't gonna do it though - I feared I might incur the Wrath Of The Moff, and several hefty Judoon would drag me from the auditorium.

    brechtsky- Its the same ammount of episodes

    by glenn_the_frog

    We're still getting a 13 episode season, + Christmas special... 14 episodes total... over the course of about 4 months, after about 8 month's wait. How is that any different than it used to be, aside from some of them now being after New Years? I guess the Christmas special is mid-season instead of post-season now, but other than that, its exactly the same. The remaining 7 episodes of this season will be in Spring... and then the next season starts in the Fall... like MOST shows. Unless you're under the impression we won't be getting episodes in the fall of 2013 for the 50th anniversary?

    by Perigee

    As I understand it, this so-called ~Split~ is simply a shift in the season; it now begins October-ish, and winds up March-ish. And starts up October-ish again. According to the latest scuttlebutt, is my understanding monkeyed up?

    by moody by nature

    Yeah mate that's pretty much dead on. It'll feel like a longer gap between seasons because the Xmas special is now mid-season rather than bridging two seasons. Which I'm not so keen on. I loved that once the series had been over for a few months we got that extra delicious helping over Xmas to keep us going till the new year.

    frodofraggins, I think not.

    by Michael_Jacksons_Ghost

    The RTD/Tennant years were very hit and miss. RTD had some very weak, and sometimes flat out silly episodes. Now during RTD's first year with Chris as the Doctor, those episodes were in the most part very good, due to Badwolf build up, and Chris's acting. The semi-restart with Moff and Matt have been so much better. The stories have been better, the production has been better, and the acting has been better. The Moff is a better storyteller than RTD.....hands down.

  • I still want an episode where The (11th) Doctor yells his trademark "Geronimo!" and just offscreen (right before they pan over to whatever actor they could hire) you hear. "That's my name and you don't have to shout it. I'm not deaf!"

    by lynxpro

    Why on Earth would anyone want Moffat to be given a pink slip and RTD brought back? I'm sorry, but I must provide you lot with the proper immunization against such a dangerous suggestion...watch "Torchwood - Miracle Day". I triple-dog-dare-infinity-plus-one you to do that, which is much more motivation than Starz had working for them last year trying to convince people to watch that train wreck. Heck, I'd rather personally resurrect the ghost of John Nathan-Turner before RTD is given another shot at the franchise. At least JN-T had decent taste with his Hawai'ian shirt collection. And if JN-T's ghost is too busy, I'd even rubber stamp giving the nod to Joel Schumacher before RTD because he at least has "The Lost Boys" in his body of work.

    by peter skellen

    For the first time since it returned I actually lost interest and missed several episodes when the last series was broadcast. I watched the Christmas special and it was so awful I almost lost the will to live. Smith is a bit too smug at times and still looks far too young to be the Doctor. If they wanted a youngish Doctor they might have been better going for Benedict Cumberbatch.

    by blueant

  • And one of the reasons the BBC has almost never made a western based episode ever since. Perhaps they're trying to redeem themselves. The Prisoner's "Living in Harmony" episode, was a kind of an acknowledgement to the fact that McGoohan knew the British couldn't make westerns. Which is why he did it. Everything ends up being 2-dimensional cut outs, because that's he thought the British take on westerns were. It was also his kind of Fuck-You to ITV because he didn't want to make the series run more than 13 episodes (ITV and CBS wanted 17 or more). If you look at the last two episodes before the final two-parter; "The Girl Who Was Death", and "Living in Harmony" McGoohan was trying to make the most absurd episodes basically to meet his quota and shame the critics & execs who complained that The Prisoner didn't have any real spy stories like Secret Agent (Danger Man). Which is why McGoohan ended The Girl Who was Death by breaking the 4th wall and saying "Good night, children...everywhere."

    @frodofraggins...

    by lynxpro

    I did like what you said in your post but I do have a point of contention with your statement about RTD putting together characters better. How exactly does that jive with Rose Tyler? She's a total Mary Sue. Go to the webpage that has the list of questions for prospective authors to review their characters against and Rose Tyler fits the bill for each question. She's the uber Mary Sue, the definitive. Man...I swear. A good portion of fandom is still butthurt about the romance between The Doctor and Grace from the TV Movie but Rassilon be damned, at least she was a brilliant scientist and accomplished cardiologist and not some slacker teenager that we are supposed to believe a Time Lord would fall in love with, who can do no wrong, who The Doctor still can't seem to get over. Now, I do agree with your statement in the case of Jackie Tyler. But then again, maybe that had to do with the acting overcoming a character stereotype. And I'd agree the characterization of Professor Yana was great, before it all went downhill with the Cesar Romero'esque Master regeneration...and the drums retcon nonsense.

    I'm not sure if I've never heard of the term "taster" before ... but I guess my little (loving) nitpick proves that expectations are high for even teasers foreshadowing trailers foreshadowing the the main event. I suppose I have to agree that at some point, we fans need to back off and let the production breath or we'll eventually end up with a preseason of previews that is longer and larger than the actual show itself.

    by Peter

    I think we're in for a season of jolly romps that turn a little darker around Christmas. Fine with me - Matt Smith's reign as the Doctor is inherently lighthearted. He and Moffat build build an atmosphere closer to that of a 30s screwball comedy as written by Douglas Adams. There is a very 'Hitchhikers' feel to Doctor Who at the moment, which is not unreasonable considering the inherently silly notion of the whole thing. Not a bad idea to mock it. That said, I dream of a darker series, where Smith regenerates into Chiwetel Ejiofor, bringing a more solemn, otherworldly quality to the role that harks back to Tom Baker. But then, any TV series as popular as this one has to please the broadest demographic and can't aim itself at 41 year old company directors who pretend to be working instead of posting random musings on kids TV programmers on American internet forums. I suppose I should get back to work.

    Was a huge fan during David Tenant's run. I tried watching the new episodes with Smith. I only got halfway through the season and then gave up. Just wasn't feeling it, which is too bad. It was a lot more emotionally driven with the other dude, Davies or whatever his name is, at the helm.

Believe me I know full well that the majority of industry professionals would never dream of looking anywhere near an internet forum, let along spending any time on it.

    Moffat has done an excellent job

    by Bumpasses Dawg

    Overall, I really enjoy his take on The Doctor, and Matt Smith shows more than his years behind the eyes.

    MOV

    by catlettuce4

    I don't understand. That's what I am saying - you are not Steven Moffat. I thought you were and I was wrong. I don't want other people to make that mistake, and assume that you have inside information when you don't. But you must know that lots of people out there in the interwebs think you are, so the clarification is important, in order that other people won't make the mistake I did.

    MOV II

    by catlettuce4

    adding to above - the point being that it is a mistake to assume you know any more than the rest of us.

    I assume you mean that it's a mistake to assume MOV knows any more about upcoming Doctor Who than the rest of us, not a general statement that he knows any more than the rest of us. Leaving it the way you did is a very tempting straight line - especially given the general ignorance of some of the people coming to post specifically to troll... ;)

    Better Off Ted... and Moffat

    by alexander

  • But I have huge hopes that the new companion can seriously improve the Moff era ... Smith's Dr NEEDS to shake off the whole Amy/Rory mess and be allowed to breathe.

    Fred Savage is Stephen Moffat, and

    has been the whole time.

    What does the Doctor put in his mouth after the "Christmas list" line?

    by sunspot_mike

    I know they'd never show him smoking (except for William Hartnell and the pipe, but those days are long over), but it looks like he's grabbing a cigarette... I wonder what it is... Alien Carmex?

    Pond looked a bit pudgy, I fear

    by FeralAngel

    Is Karen Gillian preggers, or just on the rag in those clips? Eh heh heh, sorry. But she did look a mite puffy. Hope she's okay. Really, I wish Rory had never appeared in the series. He's been a downer all along and interfered with the excellent chemistry between Smith and Gillian. A third wheel in a (theatrical) vehicle built for two can only slow it down. Lose Rory, Mr Moffat, I beg of you, and keep Amy. That new chick reminds me of Selena Gomez. That's NOT a good thing.

    WAIT!

    by Ken Plume

    Did I miss out on being Moffat? Dagnabbit. So typical. That's what I get for hanging out with Glen in Austin, co-hosting classic Who screenings and watching Charlie Brooker and writing a script. Again. Typical. Someone tell me when my next turn at Moffat is due...

    @sunspot_mike - It looks like a pen, or pen nib

    by V'Shael

    It's sticking out his jacket pocket and is only slightly visible in the trailer before he pulls it out.

    I'm Fred Savage!

    wait, this is getting really confusing.

  • In one of the novels. An unpublished one.

    It's okay, Ken

    by DoctorTom

    you can be Moffat too now if you want to. Especially if you do it while doing a Whotininnies podcast. :)

  • March 28, 2012, 1:08 p.m. CST

    Well it looks like more of the same.

    by Smashing

    Some likely close to genius episodes by The Moff and the rest a mixed bad. I'm really a bit disappointed with season 6, not the least because I got the Blurays for Xmas and nearly half the discs had to be returned due to an encoding error, meaning I had to wait from Xmas day till March to watch them. I like Matt Smith as the Doctor but fear he is too young to really deliver the gravitas needed for his angry scenes, he does controlled rage well but angry he seems a teeny-bopper and I wanna hug him. I still think my idea of each episode focusing on a different doctor from 1 - 11 would have been way more exciting.

    by DoctorTom

    if I get another cat I could name him Steven Mofcat. Or the Grand Moff.

  • Of course if I knew when series (season) 7 of Doctor Who started, I would have a reason to live! LOL
