Look Behind You!

And… it’s live! The special prequel for The Impossible Astronaut has been launched at the official BBC Doctor Who website, and features Stuart Milligan as former US President Richard Nixon…

There really is little more to say, other than: hit play!

The Impossible Astronaut is by Steven Moffat and is the first episode of season 32/Series 6. It hits BBC America on April 23rd; while th trailer says “Easter 2011″ we’re expecting the same date here in the UK, so keep your eyes open for updates!

Meanwhile, we’ll leave it up to you to watch and rewatch this clip…

    The biggest surprise is that this is actually playable outside of the UK – or at least in Canada and the US, anyway! Hopefully that’s a sign of increased “video openness” at the official website. As for the video itself – spooky!

    Oh great, yet another threat that’s invisible/can only see it out the corner of your eye/hidden by a perception filter.

    In my personal opinion, Moffat is starting to look like a one-trick pony. I’ll be glad to be proved wrong though.

    you say that after just a 2 min preview thingy? at least wait for the episodes before making judgement.

    To be fair to ‘penfolduk01′, The Moff does tend to use the same themes over and over again. The latest being the Red Nose ‘Space & Time’ thingy – the exact same plot device as ‘Time Crash’.
    I don’t mind however, it’s still good writing & I suppose deserves to be used a lot.
    There are a number of other ‘themes’ used, & used again, by The Moff. For now I don’t mind but I suspect it will get old pretty quick.
