Trailer, Pics, and More for DOCTOR WHO Season 9



Doctor Who s9 screen 05 Doctor TARDIS WIDE

Feast, friends, on all the glorious Doctor Who Season 9 bounty we have here, just for you. Gallery shots featuring – wait, has the Doctor gone hipster? That’s a hoodie under his Season 8 coat! But never fear, traditionalists, we also have him looking quite natty in a more-formal velvet jacket and waistcoat. Clara, looking lovely as always, the creepy Missy, and guest star Maisie Williams of Game of Thrones complete the set.

Next is a group of screen shots with much more drama, more guests, and lots of Daleks. As if we could ever have a season without Daleks. These pics are followed by the BBC America press release about the premiere.

But first, how about a seemingly relatively spoiler-free Season 9 trailer?

These screen shots are presumably from the season premiere, but they were identified, so that’s just a guess. Does anyone else think that Maisie Williams‘s friend looks an awful like Vincent from the 1980s Beauty and the Beast?
