New BBC America Doctor Who series 9 trailer is the most pointless thing you’ll ever watch

June 22nd, 2015 by Saxon Comments


BBC America have decided that it’s time to begin promoting the ninth series of Doctor Who, which is allegedly set to begin broadcasting in September.

But instead of the usual montage of clips from upcoming episodes or even a monologue from the Doctor, as seen in previous series trailers, this time around we get an up close look at… the Tardis.

More specifically – it’s exterior.  Thats right – it’s a teaser trailer focusing on a blue wooden box.  It’s actually laughable how the camera zooms and swoops around the Tardis – it’s akin to trying to make a shoe look exciting, and is as thrilling as watching cardboard exist.

Possibly the biggest non-story I’ve ever posted here on FTN, I’d like to personally apologise for even considering this as news, but some people out there may want to see this so my hands are tied.

For the rest of you, with Doctor Who series 9 kicking off later in the year perhaps we’ll get some decent trailers as we approach it’s start date.
