Doctor Who, Now with Scrubbing Bubble Action

First of all: DON’T PANIC. This is just a promo for the new, Matt Smith-starring season of Doctor Who, and as such, does not mean this is a scene that happens in the TV series (I’m 99% sure). I just can’t imagine that Moffat’s first direction as the Who showrunner would be to have the Doctor and his companion fall through the earth and fight bubbles with pictures of various Who enemies in them. So see it for what it is — a weird little promo piece. Meanwhile, I’m still digging Smith’s old man bowtie, more reserved demeanor and just… odd face, though. I know he’s the youngest Doctor ever, but all those things do make him seem more… timeless, if you will. If you won’t, I perfectly understand.
