Continuing on from the Christmas Day episode of Doctor Who that aired last year – The Doctor, the Widow and the Wardrobe – the seventh season of one of the most popular British TV programmes of all time is set to begin with a blockbuster of an episode, and now the first trailer and a great teaser image for the new season have made their way online.
The first episode of the new season, Asylum of the Daleks, is due to premiere at the BFI Southbank this month, before the programme – celebrating its 50th anniversary next year – returns to the small screen this autumn/fall.
“The image shows Amy Pond being carried by an injured, grim-faced Doctor. They’re both surrounded by Daleks that have been encountered during different eras of the Time Lord’s travels.
A Dalek on the right of the picture does not have any of the vertical grille-like slats that have become a familiar feature, indicating it’s a version the Doctor faced when he first met his oldest enemies on Skaro. And on the left there’s a Special Weapons Dalek, last seen in the 1988 story, Remembrance of the Daleks.”
The fourteen episodes we’re still due from the season will begin airing later this year, and will be split into two, divided by the Christmas Special at the end of the year. Stay tuned, because we’re expecting more from Doctor Who to surface soon. For now, enjoy this great new trailer, followed by a rather awesome image, which you can click to enlarge.
