It Goes Ding When There's Stuff

Doctor Who Returns on a Motorcycle [New Pic]

The BBC released this promo image last night from the newest half-season of Doctor Who, featuring the Doctor, Oswin, a motorcycle and lots and lots of photoshop. It’s being billed as a promo image for “The Bells of St. John,” premiering in a mere twenty-nine days, and featuring something menacing hiding in our Wifi. If you check out the high res image, you can see what appears to be this entire season’s cast of villains reflected in those shards of glass.

Of course, I am no one if not myself, and so my brain drew an immediate comparison between this and Miss Piggy smashing her motorcycle through the stained glass window of the Mallory Gallery in The Great Muppet Caper.

    Oh God, motorcycles? After the TV movie? This does not bode well.

    It’s like they’re trying to sell Doctor Who to people who don’t like Doctor Who. I’ll probably be exploring the back catalog of original Doctors (free on Amazon Prime) rather than paying to watch this.

    Why don’t we just skip the preliminaries and have him walking away from an explosion holding a wilting woman in his big, strong, masculine-coded arms? Oh wait….

    shark already jumped.

    Oh, good to know. I’ve been looking for a way to see more of the original Doctors.

    Meh. The posters lately do nothing much for me. Too much over the top CGI BIG GIANT “look at me!”-ness. I mean it looks like a generic big action movie poster. Not the poster for a decades long quirky TV show. Like, what demographic are they trying to attrack here?

    I ride a motorcycle now, motorcycles are cool!
