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.
Finally. If you’re as much of a Doctor Who fan as we are, you’ve been waiting for some inkling of what Season 7 is going to be about. Now we have at least something, and it’s better than we imagined.
The Doctor returns to BBC One this Autumn with five epic episodes, featuring Daleks, Dinosaurs, Weeping Angels and the departure of the Ponds.
One of our favorite lines from the trailer: “Dinosaurs – on a spaceship!”
