Love the eyes. The companions have a mix of all colours but is 10 the only one of the doctors with brown eyes?

Wow, those eyes are impressive! And the Tenth Doctor comics look really good.

That eye's picture immediately reminded me of Orphan Black for some reason

I don't think selfie is going to last. I don't like her accent, and the acting is off putting (maybe its the character itself?) and the story line seems blah. I get its meant to be comedy but nothing in that trailer was funny.

Umm Selfie?....I am so sorry.

Really, not just using that quote, I really am. She needs to be more careful about her roles. This is not going to end well, sadly.

Goodness, that Series 7 trailer was professional-grade stuff.

Just wondering, who's eyes are above Jenna/Clara but below Karen/Amy?  Is it Alex Kingston/River Song?

Love Karen but not sure her new show is worth losing suburgatory :(

Good grief. That series seven trailer actually manages to make series 7 as exciting as series 4 did in its trailers. Fantastic work there. I hope we see some better trailer work for series eight.

Not sure Selfie has enough to sustain a whole series, but it's worth noting how her co star (John Cho) wears a bow tie quite a lot in that trailer :-)

Billie, Karen and Jenna's eyes are simply beautiful :) Speaking of Karen, I think Selfie looks good! Although it is a bit weird hearing her talk with an American accent, but it goes to show what a top actress she is, it's really convincing!

Karens new series looks good, shes not too bad at an american accent as well, might give it a watch.

That 12 hour TARDIS sound is actually really calming :)

You know, I am not one to advertise normally but I was wondering if you guys would want to look at a trailer I made for Time of the Doctor a few months back. watch?v=UiqPWoKGwQY is the key and I hope it's okay with DWTV :) Maybe it will get posted on a W&W one Sunday. 

The content this week is good. It looks like the Ninth Doctor in that picture has aged a bit unless that's just me :)

The guys who get to restore missing episodes have, and do, an amazing job. I also love that man's little cheer when he saw the picture was fine XD XD

I love the eyes drawing, the eyes are one of my most favourite parts of Matt's, they're absolutely lovely.

Karen's new series looks little bit rubbishy (sorry, Kaz), I really like Karen as actress, but not there.

Baker Street is excited for Series 8!

The eyes... are the windows to the soul. No, what? This could be the oddest and most random thing I have ever said: the eyes would all fit an owl. Sorry, I noticed it and felt I shoud point it out. Not that it really needed pointing out. I'm waffling. I'm going mad.

Selfie looks really bad, but on the other hand Karen is great and so beautiful!

Those Doctor Who eyes are incredible! The Selfie trailer...not so much. Poor Karen, it's not her fault, the writing is just really, really dire. Talk about cringe.

I just finished watching "The Web of Fear" yesterday for the first time. It was so good, and it's cool to see how it was restored.

Wow, really fascinating stuff on the missing episodes. Just watching it makes me nervous though. It would be so easy to damage one and ruin the episode forever. Imagine spilling your coffee on them!

I'm gonna watch selfie when it's on in the uk

@Regenerated Catterson  As TardisBoy said the fonts were a bit big, and I wouldn't have included some of the more important dialogue (e.g. I'll always remember when the Doctor was me) but the earlier clips you included where Trenzalore was mentioned nicely added to the atmosphere!

TardisBoy

That trailer is amazing! Really well done! The only tiny little niggle I had was the gigantic white font, I feel, wasn't necessary, and felt a bit jarring and took away from the chilling atmosphere you'd built up. Other than that though, great job!

You're eyes clear of mount

As jestery guitars of San Juan.

Your eyes are the way

They're my forgivenes, my redention, my wake up.

Web is my favourite Troughton story. I've also seen Tomb of the Cybermen which was great but this was the first classic Who story I've seen and it just blew me away. I didn't think stories back then were so good ( yeah I was really stupid).and also there's something special about Doctor Who in black and white, it makes everything  more scary...

@RoastNewt  I'm glad you mentioned this as I was the same. I couldn't help thinking "What if that machine accidentally shredded it, or the handler made an accidental rip." Very tense.

@Notsosmartguy the Superior Venom  Something tells me the BBC have to tread very carefully around Christopher Eccleston, I don't think he enjoys being associated with the character that much, especially with the comment's from Moffat about why he John Hurt didn't fully regenerate into him.

Agreed but I'm actually really excited I wanna see it XD her fake accent is priceless! You almost can't tell she isn't really American :)
