1974 Doctor Who Trailer – 2014 Style!

Perhaps you haven’t noticed the similarities between the new Doctor Who Series 8 trailer and elements of the show from 1974; perhaps you have.

Either way, this excellent trailer highlights them, from the arrival of a darker, new Doctor to the appearance of Daleks, possibly Davros, and the use of the phrase “here we go again”. Moreover, we know that the Cybermen will appear in Series 8, although they don’t appear in the trailer.

(Perhaps what’s more worrying about the trailer, however, is that it highlights that 1974 was 40 years ago. If that doesn’t make you feel old, then spare a thought for the rest of us.)

Click play to enjoy the trailer, which features the soundtrack of the new 2014 trailer (complete with cleverly-edited Fourth Doctor dialogue!) with clips from Season 12.
