New DOCTOR WHO TV Spot, Pond Life Episode 1, and Advice from David Tennant if You’re New to Who

It’s gonna be all Who, all the time, from now until the Season 7 premiere of Doctor Who this Saturday, if BBC America has its way. We are totally okay with this. Today we have for you the latest excellent TV spot with a teeny bit of new footage for your consumption. It IS tasty.

We also have an absolutely delightful featurette from the Tenth Doctor, David Tennant, on how to explain, and/or get hooked on, Doctor Who, with just a touch of his for-some-of-us swoon-worthy native Scottish accent. It’s part of BBC America‘s #newtoWHO campaign; they’re encouraging people to tweet their stories about when they were new viewers, or advice to new viewers.

And finally, we have Episode 1 of “Pond Life,” the webseries we told you about last week, that will get us even more geared up for Saturday’s premiere.

Pond Life is the new 5 part mini-adventure, with a new part every day, featuring the Doctor, Amy, Rory and some surprise familiar faces! En route to visit the Ponds the TARDIS’ Helmic Regulator malfunctions, leaving the Doctor popping up everywhere in time and space. Will he ever make it back to them?
