Fanboy Freakout: Doctor Who

As those of us who get a total nerd-on for the UK's Time Lord will know, the sixth season of Doctor Who will take off on Saturday, April 23rd on BBC America! I know I'm sitting on the edge of my seat and biting my fingers to nubs already! All we have to go on so far are teasers on top of teasers! Until then, though, we have been given a treat from our BBC Overlords! It would seem the long-running series contributed to a comic relief special, it's the only taste we're getting in the States of Matt Smith, Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill until the 23rd!

"THE WIBBLY LEVER!"

But in case you've been living under a rock, here's the new teaser, it almost looks like a movie trailer...

From my understanding, the first two episodes of season six ("The Impossible Astronaut" and "Day of the Moon") actually take place — and were filmed — here in US! Can't wait!

  • I never saw Doctor Who and now I feel a bit left behind. It sounds really good. I love comics, but as a kid, a lot of sci-fi was pretty cheesy and disappointing. I gotta sit down with some Torchwood DVDs and start on Doctor Who next.

    Nerdy side note: When I was really young, I read Marvel Premiere #57–60 featuring Doctor Who (and reprinting Marvel UK’s Doctor Who Weekly). It wasn’t as exciting as the Ant-Man revival or Man-Wolf by George Perez, so I dismissed the doctor for decades. Today’s Doc sounds way more cool!
