Trailers for single episodes of television shows? When a show is of such high production value and captures the imaginations of people around an entire planet, it makes perfect sense.

In The Magician’s Apprentice, Clara and Missy form the most unlikely team-up ever as they strive to unravel the mystery of the Doctor’s last will and testament. Daleks are involved, of course. Exactly how all this fits together can’t be figured out from this short trailer, but you’re welcome to try.

In between squeeing, of course. I mean, we had that problem.

There is that master Dalek in there, giving orders. It looks like his biggest issue is keeping his head, since it’s now held on with a massive clamp. What’s in that red pepper pot, anyway? The answer to these and other questions will be revealed.

The Magician’s Apprentice stars Peter Capaldi, Jenna Coleman and Michelle Gomez, and begins the new season of Doctor Who on the BBC broadcast of September 19, 2015.
