Doctor Who Series 10 (60 second) Trailer: Frame-By-Frame Analysis

The newest trailer for Doctor Who Series 10 has dropped, and it’s a whopper. It definitely didn’t leak two days early all over Twitter. Nope… Never happened. *Cough*

As we’re just over a month till airing it’s likely this will be the main trailer running on BBC channels. I can take a few weeks off then… Watch it for yourselves HERE. Let’s do this!

The trailer starts with Nardole peering into a bag looking ever so bemused.

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 21.21.00

The camera flies over a forest toward a golden pyramid that I genuinely thought was made of ferrero rocher when I first saw it…

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 21.20.44

The TARDIS lands on an alien rocky landscape. Some lovely CGI work going on.

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 21.20.26

Two small white figures follow tracks in a corn field. Those pesky aliens and their crop circles again!

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 21.20.12

A big space station of sort hangs in space. Similar in design to that undersea base from Under The Lake in Series 9…

Bill runs out of her university…

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 21.19.37

Towards The Doctor!

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 21.19.28

“This is the gateway to everything that ever was, or ever can be.” Ooh nice description of the TARDIS. He’s clearly trying to get Bill to become his companion.

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 21.19.16

Bill stands at the TARDIS doors as the ship awakens.

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 21.18.38

This might be my favourite shot of the whole trailer. All the lights turning on looks gorgeous.

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 21.18.25

“It’s like a…”

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 21.18.10

“Spaceship!”

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 21.17.51

“…kitchen!”

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 21.17.35

“What?”

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 21.17.17

A lever is flipped!

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 21.17.03

And it starts a bumpy ride for The Doctor and Nardole. Note Matt Lucas’ little bit of ‘wobbly’ acting as he bounces up and down.

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 21.16.45

Bill is thrown against the railings. I’m glad the TARDIS is having more rickety journeys again, I never quite liked Capaldi flying it perfectly flat in Series 8.

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 21.16.32

Bill turns, and glances up at the spinny things atop the time rotor.

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 21.16.20

The TARDIS flies through space!

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 21.15.46

The Doctor and Bill walk down a futuristic path, filming reports say this is somewhere in Barcelona.

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 21.15.31

“That is a robot” Well done Bill. Stating the bleeding obvious I see.

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 21.15.07

Those robots are tiny. I hope Warwick Davis is inside one of them.

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 21.14.42

“It speaks Emoji!” I just want you all to pause for a moment and consider what William Hartnell’s reaction to that might have been.

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 21.14.21

“Mars?!” This is the first time since 2012 we’ve had the whole ‘excited new companion’ thing to play on. I hope it works for them.

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 21.14.08

The Doctor smiles as they wander through a red cave in unfamiliar space suits.

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 21.13.53

“1814” A Thames Frost Fair! I’ve said for years they should do a Doctor Who story here.

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 21.13.37

“Get in!” exclaims Bill. Clearly excited by her Victorian dress and headpiece. I LOVE that outfit Capaldi is wearing too, cosplayers do your work…

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 21.13.17

Medieval folk surround Doc and Nardole who’s decided to dress like he’s in a cheap B&B for the weekend.

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 21.13.01

“Nice here… Isn’t it?” Reviewing the B&B for you all.

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 21.12.43

Bill looks on in terror! Has she just seen Moffat’s plans for her in the final episode?

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 21.12.19

The Doctor makes a whooshing noise and points up to the sky.

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 21.12.04

WHOOSH!

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 21.11.46

Oh god it’s the Sylvester McCoy title sequence.

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 21.11.34

Bill in the middle of a … supernova? Maybe? I’ve no idea.

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 21.11.16

Some more of that spinny space station.

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 21.11.01

“So how do we stay out of trouble?” Don’t look on GallifreyBase and you’ll be fine Bill.

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 21.10.40

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 21.10.29

A giant eye opens to peer at two travellers in aqua suits. My guess is Doc and Bill.

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 21.10.07

The giant eye monster has a mouth too! Whatever next…

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 21.09.48

The Doctor smiles at something. Yes.

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 21.09.27

“This is naughty” *smacks head on desk*

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 21.09.13

A Dalek fires toward the camera!

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 21.08.57

Ooh. A brunette woman assembles from … water? Nope I’m lost.

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 21.08.33

“Exterminate!” she cries whilst standing perfectly still. I’ve still got nothing.

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 21.07.56

Is that Ralf Little from Two Pints of Lager? He’s holding a gun of some sorts and shielding his eyes from…

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 21.07.38

The futuristic city as it explodes forth a blinding white glow.

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 21.07.18

All better then no damage done.

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 21.06.55

The Doctor backs away from a spiky door.

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 21.06.44

And upon the camera zooming in we see Gallifreyan symbols adorning the door. I wonder what could be inside as the door shakes and is being forced open…

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 21.06.27

“Something’s coming Bill… And I have a feeling that we’re gonna be very busy” It’s that shot from that preview thing!

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 21.06.06

OooOooh!

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 21.03.38

A cloaked figure wanders down a library.

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 21.03.31

Closer and closer…

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 21.03.19

Cheer up mate, might never happen.

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 21.03.04

Bill looks on in fear.

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 21.02.51

“It’s time.” Why hello there Mr Poirot. What are you doing with that tuning fork?

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 21.02.40

The many faces of the EmojiBots. Ruddy ecstatic…

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 21.02.26

Slightly amused…

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 21.02.14

And grumpy. Don’t remember seeing that emoji on my phone. I would use it all the smegging time though.

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 21.01.56

“Doctor!” Because of course Steven Moffat is going to write a Missy script in his final series. Just like RTD wanted a Rose script. Loving the new look too Michelle.

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 21.01.38

He’s looking grumpy again.

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 21.01.22Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 21.01.13Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 21.01.03

Of all the characters they bring back, the wooden queen from the 2011 Christmas episode? Seriously?!

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 21.00.40

The United Nations guard some abandoned buildings. They don’t seem to be UNIT either, just boring old UN soldiers. He’s got those bloody sonic shades on again…

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 21.00.23

“Bring it.”

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 21.00.07

The TARDIS flies through space again, did nobody tell them they’ve done that already in this trailer?

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 20.59.49

You need a wash mate. And trim your fingernails.

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 20.59.14

The Doctor grabs onto a skull akin to Tom Baker in Image of the Fendahl!

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 20.57.30

He’s swiftly throw back away from the figure. He’s also apparently in the Crystal Maze so it’s nice they got that tie in deal.

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 20.57.11

I tried so hard to get a decent frame of this shot, but this was the best I could do. He’s punching a guy… Honest. You can even hear the punch in the trailer.

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 20.56.53

See. Note the AWESOME blue lining on Capaldi’s black frock coat.

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 20.56.36

Folks in space suits (good name for an album title) stroll out of a door. They look quite angry too.

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 20.55.37

“You’re about to be exposed to the vacuum of space” Pearl Mackie looks shocked because that wasn’t in her contract presumably.

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 20.55.18

Point!

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 20.55.02

Two figures in those space suits we’ve seen before float in space. It doesn’t look much like Pearl or Peter so I’m assuming these are side characters.

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 20.54.29

asBill cries… Aw poor asBill.

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 20.54.16

ABJUBFJVBKJKJLSJDNVJDNFVJDNFVOLEVKNDEFV. alright Matthew, calm down. Breathe now.

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 20.54.05

MONDASIAN CYBERMEN. ACTUAL PROPER CLOTH FACED CHEAP 60S CYBERMEN. Woo! Gimme all of that.

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 20.53.52

A female Ice Warrior? Well that looks new. Tying in to the Mars thing we saw earlier.

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 20.53.24

Nardole zaps a box. BUT WAIT. Is that… No… In his hand? It can’t be…

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 20.53.02

The box explodes! Good job Nardole, I think.

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 20.52.44

Some more of Pearl Mackie from that promo reel aired a few months ago.

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 20.52.23

Missy looks on from inside her glowy box.

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 20.51.55

“This is the moment you’ve been waiting for since the day you were born!” Alright Doc you’ve only known Bill about ten minutes calm down.

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 20.51.39

They run from a water jet, and Darth Vader’s face forms in the water. No word of a lie.

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 20.51.04

The red robes chap reaches out to grab the camera man again.

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 20.50.50

He’s looking very excited with himself. Has he just found a new coat?

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 20.50.26

That’s… But… How the… Is it really…?

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 20.50.07

It’s the sonic screwdriver from the 70s and 80s! Used by Jon Pertwee, Tom Baker, and Peter Davison.  The famous silver tube with a red round thing on the top. Oh you beauty. Maybe it’s the original, maybe we’re gonna have a scene of Nardole in Toys R Us to pick one up. Who knows…

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 20.49.50

Bill runs to the Doc, note the change in outfits.

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 20.49.15

She runs some more!

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 20.48.59

Those red robes try to grab The Doctor…

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 20.48.42

But he breaks free, clinging on to a laptop  I think…

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 20.48.24

Errm. Guys? That’s the shot from 2011’s The Doctor’s Wife again isn’t it? I thought you learnt that lesson last year!

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 20.48.06

“Nardole, Bill. With me… to the TARDIS!”

Screenshot 2017-03-13 at 20.46.47

Doctor Who returns to BBC One on Saturday the 15th of April for it’s 36th Season. Good luck.
