It's Dr Who

It seems like only minutes since David Tennant blasted off our screens in a hail of pyrotechnics and gave us our first glimpse of the new boy Matt Smith. Now we're just weeks away from his full debut in the hour-long episode 'The Eleventh Hour' (geddit?) and while no final air date has been announced yet the publicity machine is starting to crank up. Teaser trailers are due on BBC1 early in March, Matt Smith is rumoured to be giving his first proper TV interview on 'Friday Night With Jonathan Ross', possibly as early as March 12th. Just to prove that the buzz is beginning, the BBC have just released this spiffing new publicity pic which will hitting the press in, ooh, hours from to embiggen...

UPDATE: Now confirmed...first series 5/1 trailers to start airing from this Saturday on BBC1. It's understood a cinema trailer - specially treated for 3D - has also been filmed and should start screening along with the forthcoming Tim Burton version of 'Alice in Wonderland'. This is all part of a slow-burn 5 week 'awareness' campaign which will be ramping up by degree prior to the commencement of the new series around Easter. Colour me excited.
