Doctor Who Series 9 Trailer MK2 Analysis

The BBC only went and released another trailer for Doctor Who Series 9, they must have loved my previous analysis so much they wanted to give me more delicious frames to look at and make hasty judgements… And look at that, I’ve learnt how to use permalinks 🙂

Starting off in the TARDIS, they’re just showing off now they’ve got more Roundels about the place. They had better open up the set to tours again soon…

The Doctor rushes in, wearing a red velvet jacket. Filming pictures suggest this jacket is worn during episode 10.

“Sorry I’m late” Talking to your ship again Doctor?

Reusing a shot of TARDIS flying through space from the first trailer.

“He hasn’t got a plan yet, but he will have. And it will be spectacular”

Clara seen in episodes 4/5 with Maisie Williams (character name unknown). This again backs up the theory episodes 4 and 5 are going to be ‘Vikings in Space’. They’re watching The Doctor:

And The Doctor is looking up at something… A spaceship taking off perhaps?

A clear view of the robot guards glimpsed in the first trailer. Again from the Viking episode, and I said in my previous analysis how much I love this design.

Backing The Doctor and Clara into a corner, with what appears to be a Viking Warrior behind them. Horns on the helmet? HISTORICAL INACCURACY ALERT, CODE RED, AWOOGA AWOOGA ADANDON SHIP.

GUNS! Those big robot chaps have guns, because what sort of giant killer robot would they be without a laser.

Corridor time once again for The Doctor. Nice to see we’ve still got some familiarity left in the show.

Okay, first of all, a dragon in a Viking house is quite cool.

Screenshot 2015-08-12 at 21.02.57

Second of all, the CGI on this thing is POOP! Watching it in the trailer makes me think they gave The Mill the day off and hired a four year old with his parent’s iPad.

The eerie hands seen rising from the mud last time, now have eyes… Anyone else having flashbacks of Pan’s Labyrinth.

Joivan Wade returns as Rigsy! Yes the character that everybody saw and went “Meh he’ll do I suppose” It’s been confirmed already he’s appearing in episode 10 alongside that red velvet coat P-Cap has got himself.

And that sign behind him is too blurry to read, but there is a great big ‘Congestion Charge Zone’ logo. So either this in set in central London or continuity messed up.

Zygons galore in episodes 7 and 8. And is it just me or is the background here look like Boat One? That aeroplane UNIT used to hold Missy and The Doctor last year…

Clara channels Gwen Cooper in that poop fourth Torchwood series with a great big gun. I should really use gifs to show scenes like this with her assembling the gun from a case, but I’m not skilled enough to create gifs.

Screenshot 2015-08-12 at 21.03.29

Maisie Williams with some sort of… alien fortune teller perhaps? That looks like a lion? And where on earth is Maisie getting red lipstick from in Viking England?

Screenshot 2015-08-12 at 21.03.34

This city, yup this time it’s definitely on Skaro. Watch ‘The Dead Planet’ the first Dalek story EVER to understand why this city is significant.

Screenshot 2015-08-12 at 21.03.39

They’re too small to see on the screenshot, but loads of Daleks are floating up out of this city. Too small to tell which Dalek aesthetic is visiting Skaro. And you’ll see why aesthetic is important later.

This to me looks like, a teleport pod. In a monastery.

Screenshot 2015-08-12 at 21.03.55

The evil sea creature bloke from the first trailer brings a tsunami. According to someone on Twitter this was filmed in an army base about 30 minutes outside of Cardiff.

Screenshot 2015-08-12 at 21.04.04

Clara is spooked, and pulls out a knife to defend herself from…

Screenshot 2015-08-12 at 21.04.08

Missy! Michelle Gomez keeping the slightly deranged Mary Poppins nemesis we saw last year. She’s wearing a Vortex Manipulator on her wrist, I wonder what Jack would think of this?

Screenshot 2015-08-12 at 21.04.14

The Doctor in his red velvet jacket crouching, perhaps hiding from something.

Screenshot 2015-08-12 at 21.04.17

Not hiding very well then Doctor. A hand appears to pull him down. I think this is the sea creature’s hand.

Screenshot 2015-08-12 at 21.04.25

Exiting the TARDIS, good to know he’s still doing that.

Screenshot 2015-08-12 at 21.04.32

Daleks! Lots of lovely Daleks. Some Time-War era drones, a Davros New Empire Supreme, a Time-War Black Dalek, on the balcony we see a ‘Destiny of The Daleks’ style Dalek, and peeking in the back is an ‘Evil of The Daleks’ Emperor Guard.

And not a ‘Power Ranger’ New Paradigm Dalek in sight. That is fantastic news.

Screenshot 2015-08-12 at 21.04.37

Daleks have captured a scared looking Clara, *begins chanting ‘KILL HER’ as loud as possible*

Screenshot 2015-08-12 at 21.04.43

A shadowy figure in a shadowy corridor. Nope, I’ve got nothing.

Screenshot 2015-08-12 at 21.04.47

The figure up close, channelling Darth Maul.

Screenshot 2015-08-12 at 21.04.57

This one was seen in the last trailer, here he’s forming out of thin air so yeh. This is the sea base episode, with ghosts…

Screenshot 2015-08-12 at 21.05.05

From what I remember of last trailer’s analysis, I decided this bloke was from the planet Karn.

Screenshot 2015-08-12 at 21.05.11

A Viking Warrior with two robot guards. If my hunch is correct this character is Odin, originally planned to be played by Brian Blessed before he dropped out. Now it’s David Schofield playing the Norse God.

Screenshot 2015-08-12 at 21.05.29

Again I realise I need to use gifs in these analyses. P-Cap riding a horse just like in his first episode.

Screenshot 2015-08-12 at 21.05.36

Ugly sea creature clear shot to terrify the children? Check.

Screenshot 2015-08-12 at 21.05.44

“Here and now, this is where your story ends.” Let’s hope P-Cap gets more ‘I AM THE DOCTOR’ speeches to defeat the baddies.

Screenshot 2015-08-12 at 21.05.50


Screenshot 2015-08-12 at 21.05.53

The Doctor and Maisie run away from some explosions, with the alien lion soothsayer visible too.

Screenshot 2015-08-12 at 21.05.56

Where IS Maisie getting this lipstick from? And how many hairdressers were there in Viking times?

Screenshot 2015-08-12 at 21.06.01

Osgood seen here running towards a Police station. Odd architecture too, it seems Spanish…

Screenshot 2015-08-12 at 21.06.09

She’s running away from a Zygon, of course she is. I really hope they give us a decent explanation how Osgood is still alive.

Screenshot 2015-08-12 at 21.06.13

The fans said last time they wanted more of the guitar scene, so they gave us the same scene again! Genius.

Screenshot 2015-08-12 at 21.06.16

Michelle Gomez here doing her best interpretation of Roger Delgado in the last episode of Frontier in Space. Does anyone get that reference?

Screenshot 2015-08-12 at 21.06.21

The same shot from the first trailer of The Doctor and Clara running down a sea base corridor.

Screenshot 2015-08-12 at 21.06.25

The lion breathes fire!

Screenshot 2015-08-12 at 21.06.32

P-Cap with his red velvet jacket jumping out of a window. The curtains could be anything, not much to see here.

Screenshot 2015-08-12 at 21.06.36

If P-Cap says “I wear sunglasses now, sunglasses are cool” I will go to BBC Wales and punch Moffat square in the face.

Screenshot 2015-08-12 at 21.06.43

“What is happening?!”

Oh that shot is gorgeous. Some time-war era golden Daleks and a black supreme, the Davros New Empire Red Supreme, a couple of Troughton Era Emperor guards and tucked away at the back, THE SPECIAL WEAPONS DALEK! My favourite Dalek of them all. It seems we are finally getting ‘every Dalek ever’.

Also, my good friend Neil on Twitter suggested this room with it’s triangle walls and supports looks a lot like the original control room in the very first Dalek story. Yet more confirmation we’ve finally returned to the Dalek City that started it all…

Screenshot 2015-08-12 at 21.06.51

“Same old same old. Just The Doctor and Clara Oswald in the TARDIS!” So he wears the sunglasses when confronting The Daleks

Screenshot 2015-08-12 at 21.07.00

Back with the UNIT boys, either there’s a heck of a lot happening in one episode of P-Cap keeps the sunglasses all series.

Screenshot 2015-08-12 at 21.07.06

Oh no, I can hear Tumblr turning this into a gif and ‘shipping’ as I type…

Screenshot 2015-08-12 at 21.07.10

You people see love here? I don’t. Clara loves BEING with The Doctor (as any normal person would). She doesn’t love The Doctor and he doesn’t love her. She needs to leave and never come back. A death would suffice but then she might end up with ‘Adric’ levels of remembrance.

So there we are. Somewhat less exciting than the first trailer, but some very cool scenes shown. And I want that Dalek scene as a poster.

Thanks for reading, this took several hours 🙂
