The Latest Doctor Who Trailers… Are They Haunted?

Before I spook you out entirely, here’s something much more benign: a trailer for the prequel to the new series of Doctor Who.

That’s right – from tomorrow afternoon, there’s going to be an online mini-episode, apparently written by Steven Moffat and introducing some of the big ideas from the next series.

This prequel has a trailer, and here it is:

How very… stylish. Ahem.

The BBC also last night premiered a trailer for the new series proper. It went out at 9pm on their many channels, and has also been posted online. Here’s that one:

Mysterious. But maybe there’s another secret hidden here too.

According to victor_02, posting to the Gallifrey Base forum, an alternate version of the trailer was screened on some channels in some regions. He provided a pair of screen captures to prove his point, and here they are – firstly, the “normal version”, and secondly, the “haunted alternative”

Creepy.

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen this chap, however. He made a very fleeting appearance in the full series 6 trailer, look:

…but just because he’s been hanging around a while, it doesn’t mean you won’t see him over your shoulder the next time you look in a mirror.
