This was too brilliant not to share! The folks over at College Humor have prepared an extremely cool video simulation of Series 5 and 6 of Doctor Who if it had been made as a 16-bit video game. You can check out the clip at the bottom of this post.
The CH video contains a lot of allusions and aspects of the major story arcs from the previous two seasons that follow the Doctor’s Eleventh Incarnation (Matt Smith), as he encounters adventures with Amy Pond (Karen Gillan), Rory Williams (Arthur Darvill), and River Song (Alex Kingston). Even David Tennant‘s Doctor gains a cameo at the start for a fun regeneration sequence.
Doctor Who is currently filming for Series 7, which is set to premiere in Fall 2012. The season will be split in two, with the first 5 episodes leading up to the departure of Amy and Rory, the Christmas Special introducing the new companion played by Jenna-Louise Coleman, and the second half launching in early 2013.
A teaser trailer for the upcoming season has been released, and the Geeks of Doom podcast TARDISblend is following the latest news and developments for the next series, as well as Series 8, which is believed will be launched in late 2013 for the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who.
