Fan-Made CGI Doctor Who Trailer Wows Fans

May 27th, 2014 by Marc 2 Comments

When the first teaser trailer for the new series of Doctor Who dropped last week fans were left disappointed, as during it’s 15 second running time, the 12th Doctor was only glimpsed for a few brief moments.  

Fortunately its Youtube to the rescue as talented Whovian John Smith has created a new CGI trailer!  The video features the new Doctor landing on a rain-soaked planet, before stepping out into the downpour and beckoning his assistant Clara to join him.  Its impressive stuff to say the least, especially as the entire video was created by one guy.  Sure the effects are somewhat ropey in places, but its thrilling to see the Tardis doors opening to reveal Capaldi’s Doctor – considering its ultimately a pile of pixels.

Check out the trailer – titled “Rain” – below and let us know what you think!

Doctor Who returns to BBC 1 this August.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
