If you’re not already excited for next month’s Doctor Who season 6 premiere, the release of the first full-length trailer for the upcoming season will surely have you permanently sitting on the edge of your seat with anticipation.

In the trailer’s one-minute run-time, so many scenes from Doctor Who season 6 will flash before your eyes – and each one is more amazing than the previous. With River Song’s ominous voice-over, she announces that “this is the Doctor’s darkest hour. He will rise higher than ever before, then fall so much further.” From the imagery that accompanies these wonderful sound-bites, there’s no doubt that the Doctor is indeed in trouble.

As a veritable treasure trove of monsters, aliens, creepy clowns and angel-esque creatures quickly appear on the screen, a second viewing is almost certainly needed, as the initial image shown when the trailer begins will surely be stuck in your head: a disheveled Doctor being held prisoner.

Alright, enough talking. You can view the full-length trailer for Doctor Who season 6 below:

Now that you have been able to see the wonderfully put together trailer for Doctor Who season 6, it’s time to discuss what might be the most exciting part of the upcoming season – River Song revealing herself.

This is the moment that fans have been waiting for ever since we were introduced to her in the terrific season 4 episodes “Silence in the Library” and “Forest of the Dead.” As River announces in the trailer, “This is the day that he finds out who I am.”

While it has been suggested that River Song is the Doctor’s wife – and the supplemental scene that accompanied the voice-over certainly adds to this thought – with Stephen Moffat in the writer’s chair, who knows what wonderful revelation he has written for Dr. Song.

With so many wonderful things contained within this short trailer, it’s hard not to fawn over each and every one one of them. To prevent myself from running at the mouth, I shall stop with this one final quote:

Ominous voice: Fear me: I have killed hundreds of Time Lords!

Doctor: Fear me: I’ve killed all of them.

Doctor Who season 6 premieres April 23 on BBC One, BBC America & UKTV (Australia)

  1. Great trailer! Didn’t River Song confirm she was his future wife? And that she killed this incarnation of the Doctor in his future? Actually, don’t answer that. I can’t fully remember and I like it that way!

    • Well.. RIver alluded to both of those scenarios as being possible. But I wouldn’t count on either one just yet. 😉

  2. Ominous Voice: “Fear me. I’ve killed hundreds of Time Lords.”

    Doctor: “Fear me. I’ve killed all of them.”

    chills went up my spine. And it premieres the saturday before my birthday! too excellent!

    • that may be tom baker (4th doctor) listen to the voice just deepened a little i have actually been trained to hear that sort of stuff

  3. Maybe I’m looking at it wrong, but at 0:38 it looks a lot like the 9th and 10th doctors’ TARDIS. Anyone else have thoughts about that?

    • It’s a different Tardis that’s for sure.

      • Definitely looks like the previous TARDIS to me.

        • It is. And you also see the Tardis from “The Lodger”

  4. The ominous voice is the same one that says “Silence Will Fall”.

  5. I know I may be in the minority, but I don’t like River Song. I don’t like her at all. I’m disappointed that this season may be all about her.

  6. Rory and Amy are watching the Doctor regenerating. No idea why.

  7. I still cant understand what the doctor said at the end of the video… i just cant can someone help me

    • I have been running my whole life. Now is time for me to stop…

  8. Stupid cable company not carrying BBC America HD…

  9. Have to say the BBC has done an excellent job reviving this franchise.

    I still wish they had stayed with David Tennant. I thought he was the best of the “modern” Doctors.

    • David Tennant chose to leave, BBC didn’t force him to leave.

    • I agree mongoose although it seems like a lot of people have different opinion for me tennant was and is the best doctor of the new doctors.:)

      • when i heard that david tennant was leaving i thought that it was a bad idea as he was a brilliant doctor,

        but after watching matt smith for a few episodes i realised that he is a brilliant doctor too.

        he brings back the quirkyness of the 2nd and 4th doctor, i like him now.

        love the series, so glad they brought doctor who back after ending it with mccoy :)

        im 42, but still a kid@heart :)

        • also, river song is amy!

  10. hey did anyone other than me notice that the voice telling the doctor to fear him sounds like tom baker? tell me if that isnt him.

  11. great show spiced up by a very spicy Amy Pond. Can’t be bad.
