A new trailer for season seven of Doctor Who has appeared online – scroll down to watch it.
The 90-second clip features several exchanges between Matt Smith and companions Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill, as well as a brief glimpse of returning guest star Alex Kingston. There are scenes featuring everything from dinosaurs to Daleks, in locations ranging from the Wild West to New York City. The trailer will make its TV debut tonight (August 2) at 8pm on BBC One.
Earlier this month (July), Smith revealed that season seven of Doctor Who will begin in August. However, the BBC has yet to confirm the exact broadcast date for the season’s opening episode.
The episode, titled ‘Asylum Of The Daleks’, will receive its first public screening at London’s British Film Institute on August 14. Later that month, the episode will also be shown during the Edinburgh International TV Festival, which takes place from August 23-25. It is expected to premiere on BBC One within days of its Edinburgh screening.
Gillan and Darvill, the Doctor’s companions since 2010, will make their final appearances at some point during season seven, while a new companion, played by Jenna-Louise Coleman, will make her debut in this year’s Christmas special. Last month (June), the first official picture of Smith and Coleman together was released.
