A new trailer’s out for series 6.5 of Doctor Who and if there’s one thing they want you to know, it’s that The Doctor is going to die… which is why they say it over and over again.
Now, before you yell “SPOILER!” and hurl your laptop into a wall, we’d like to point out that it was established was going to “die” back in the season opener “The Impossible Astronaut” where he was shot by an inexplicably wading, well, astronaut.
To be honest, we’re pretty certain they’re not going to actually kill The Doctor (especially since Matt Smith has signed on for next year’s Doctor Who series), but hopefully all this death-mentioning means we’ll be getting a explanation for that earlier death scene. Sure we all like layered stories that play out over a long period of time, but after the anti-climactic reveal of River Song’s identity, we’re just anxious for a big mystery to be resolved…and be satisfying.
Apart from all that death talk, what else do we know from this trailer? Well, there’s a split second shot of the Silence, but we already knew they were coming back. Probably the biggest thing was the giant pyramid decorated with a flag and a painted on “Area 52.” Since Area 51 was such a big part of the first Silence episodes, we’re betting it’s from the season finale, where hopefully they’ll explain what the hell’s been going on for the last two years.
New episodes of Doctor Who premiere on BBC America on August 27th.
