The trailers for the new season of Doctor Who are hilarious and we're counting them down.
For those not familiar with the show, its a highly popular British science-fiction show about an eccentric adventurer, known only as "The Doctor," who travels across time and space looking for adventure.
5. Doctor Playing with an Astronaut helmet (BBC trailer)
Who wouldn't want to wear an astronaut suit? The Doctor yells, "Look how cool this stuff is!" as he flips open the visor. It is cool and we love you for saying so.
A cowboy getting his hat shot off is a common theme in spaghetti westerns. This season The Doctor, while in Utah, gets his hat shot off his head. Imagine his surprise when he hears that familiar phrase, "Hello Sweetie" and turns to see his future wife holding the gun. River Song, aka The Doctor's wife, has been a running theme for the last three seasons. She always shows up and turns his life upside-down.
1. The Doctor Visits the White House (BBC America trailer)
The Doctor warns "We're in the middle of the most powerful city in the most powerful country on Earth. Let's take it slow." He then sits in President Nixon's chair in the Oval office. Not surprisingly, guns are drawn and he reacts with a broad smile. Only the Doctor could get away with this.
Season 6 of Doctor Who starts in the U.S. on "BBC America," shown in the UK on "BBC One," and in Canada on "Space" April 23rd 2011.
