doctor who lets kill hitler Doctor Who: Lets Kill Hitler Preview Clips & Pics

The long-awaited returned of Doctor Who will soon be upon us, and BBC has released two preview clips and five pictures from the episode. We now know exactly what the Doctor will be up against – and it’s not just Hitler.

It has been hinted that the August 27 return episode, entitled “Let’s Kill Hitler”, will place The Doctor face to face with the “greatest war criminal in the Universe. And Hitler.” Finally, after much speculation, the identities of these alien invaders have been revealed – along with their altruistic motives.

Given the name of Teselecta, the intent of these appropriately-titled aliens is to travel through time and space in order to right the wrongs of the past. While their intentions sound noble, anyone that has seen Time Cop (or, you know, Doctor Who) will certainly understand the ramifications of impacting time in such a way.

In the two clips below we first witness the meeting of Hitler and the Doctor (with an unknown resident of the ’30s accompanying them), and then it’s on to some interesting revelations regarding the Teselecta and where they “live”.

You can see the Doctor meeting Hitler for the first time below:

With the Universe’s protector meeting up with one of the Earth’s most destructive inhabitants, there’s no doubt that some interesting scenes will be taking place. One must also add in the fact that the Doctor will need to protect Hitler from the Teselecta. If anything, this episode will surely provide those watching with some interesting character moments, in which the Doctor must maintain the course of history while also dealing with the emotional fallout from Amy and Rory simply wanting to, as the title says, kill Hitler.

It is now time to introduce the Teselecta:

While their electro-tentacle appearance certainly is interesting, one must note that Rory and Amy being shrunk and inserted into a robot Amy certainly adds a level of… “What?!” Even though the Doctor Who season 6 cliffhangers revealed River Song’s true identity and the villain of this season, I don’t believe a robot Amy has been revealed.

One might appropriately assume the so-called robot Amy may be one of the many faux avatars that melt away upon being recognized, but there was never any type of electrical elements hinted at before. On top of that, there weren’t any Teselecta running around the place.

Fortunately, there is only one week left before all will be revealed. So while certain elements in these preview pics and clips will certainly be the focus of discussion amongst the fans, at least the summer hiatus is over – and answers will soon be coming.

  1. I kind of thought Madame Kovarian would be reviled to be Amy and Roy’s daughter when she regenerates again into the River Song we know now. After all, their baby was to be raised to kill the Doctor and to have it shown that she trained her younger self to do so would be an interesting plot twist. But later learning her tragic mistake regenerates to the River Song we know now.

    The Doctor that is killed in America is a ganger with the body burned in a boat in the middle of a lake to hide the evidence as a regenerated River Song walks back to an underwater TARDIS where the real Doctor is waiting for her.

    Just a thought.

    • Melvin, I thought I was the only one to come up with the ganger idea-I really think we’re right.
      The River Song idea-wow!!- we’ll see.
      Can’t wait

  2. Finally I get to watch my favourite show again. I’ve been watching Doctor Who since the 60s. I enjoyed all the actors that casted as Doctor Who. Including his followers. I was saddened when my favourite Doctor Who follower past away recently who returned to play her role one last time not long ago before she left us. I felt emotional when I saw Sarah James Smith again. We should have a memorial sight for her. I hope that Doctor Who will continue to air for a very long time. Some day I’ll be honoured to get to meet any of the actors from the show. Thank you.

    • Aruthur, you should check out her spin-off series, “The Sarah Jane Adventures.”

      There were two 2-part episodes with the Doctor in it. One had David Tennant and the other had Matt Smith. Katy Manning also returned in the Matt Smith episode as the former companion Jo Grant. “The Wedding of Sarah Jane Smith” & “Death of the Doctor” are the titles.

      Nicholas Courtney also returned in “Enemy of the Bane” to reprise his role of the Brigadier.

      Not sure how far you go back with Doctor Who, but those are some nice episodes to watch.

  3. I’m trying not to get my hopes up for Doctor Who this half of the series. I really enjoyed the first two episodes and the Doctor’s Wife, but I felt a little bit let down with The ganger 2 parter and A Good Man Goes to War. Felt like all those could have been wrapped up between two episodes and then made way for another story.
    But the preview for Let’s Kill Hitler does look cool.
    I hope we actually learn who River is beside who her birth parents are. I wonder if she really was that child who regenerated…i have doubts.
    Anyways, bring on the second half!

  4. And who was that girl with The Doctor, Amy and Rory when they first left the Tardis?

    • One can only assume it’s one of the usual local folks from that era that help out.

      • Or it’s a regenerated Melody Pond…
