Watch: New Doctor Who Series 7 Trailer

Back when Kantaloupe first started back in September 2011, Doctor Who was one of the main subjects this site dealt with. There would be a weekly review of the latest episode, along with other interesting news. This news has since slowed down, but it seems Who is in the air once again with the release earlier today of the latest trailer from the BBC:

There was another teaser trailer a few months back, but that focused mainly on one episode, which appears to be set in the Wild West. This new trailer, on the other hand, is more revealing about the other episodes in the series. However, his trailer cannot be representative of the whole next series, as they only show events concerning the Pond (or Williams) family. As we know, Amy and Rory only have until the Christmas Special left. After that, the new companion, played by Jenna-Louise Coleman, will begin her adventure.

Something the trailer really focuses on is the first episode of the new series, Asylum of the Daleks. The episode will of course feature the Daleks, whom we haven’t really seen since the finale of Series 4. As such, this is a much-anticipated story and judging by the looks of the new clips we’ve seen, I don’t expect it’ll disappoint.

If you’re wondering what the new series will look like, Hypable.com has a nice compilation of what the producers have released so far. It may not be 100% accurate, but it’s something nice to look at.

Review: The God Complex

Warning: There may be spoilers below

Just now, I watched the newest episode of Doctor Who: The God Complex. It was a thrilling, creepy episode that was full of new monsters at every turn. I was a little disappointed because the Doctor Who site, along with all its trailers and clips, boasted the return of the Weeping Angels. They were really scary in The Time of Angels/Flesh and Stone, so I was excited for another appearance. They did appear, for about one and a half minutes! Other than that, the idea was great, the story made for a nice thriller, but it was a bit anti-climactic. Although we can guess what was in the Doctor’s room, we never got to see it, and the action did begin to slow in the end, in preparation for the Doctor’s grand farewell! Being a relatively new Whovian (starting with Series 5), I started out with Amy (and Rory) being the Doctor’s companions. Even though we’ll definitely see them again in this series and the next, it was a little sad to see them go.

Review: The Girl Who Waited

Warning: There may be spoilers below.

Last night, we watched the newest episode of Doctor Who: The Girl Who Waited. It was a great episode, full of the complex time-y mind-boggling-ness that makes Doctor Who so good. The separate timestreams idea made for a really good story, and it was kinda sad to see Rory have to make a choice between the Amys. Old Amy had almost a Cast Away attitude, with Rory the robot being the Wilson volleyball. Maybe it’s because we’re only kids, and we don’t understand grown-up stuff, but Amy and her freaking out got a little tiring after a while, and we don’t really get how she’s not relieved that the Doctor came and doesn’t want to get out of the place. Nevertheless, Arthur Darvill and Karen Gillan did a great job portraying their characters, and the stand out scene is when old Amy gets locked out of the TARDIS. Overall, it was a great episode, though we’re not sure it was as good as it was hyped up to be.
