The Impossible Astronaut Promo Image

The BBC have released a fascinating new image to accompany the recent trailers and prequels for The Impossible Astronaut, the first episode of the new series of Doctor Who.

Featuring the Doctor, Rory and Amy (Matt Smith, Arthur Darvill, Karen Gillan) seemingly reflected in the visor of a spacesuit, the image can be downloaded in two sizes, 4:3 and 16:9, suitable for traditional and widescreen displays.

We think you will agree that this is a pretty stunning image… although we’re not too certain why the writing on the TARDIS is the right way around if the time travellers are being reflected in the visor.

On first glance this could be an error, but given the intricacies with which The Grand Moff tends to weave clues throughout his Doctor Who stories it could also be a sneaky clue to something.

To what, we don’t quite know. But certainly something.
