For the next "Weird and Wonderful", may I suggest the musical parody done by the HillyShow girls ? Easily found on YouTube, and well worth a look.

0:26 Find the frame in there for halfway between Hurt and Eccelston, it's pretty freaky.

John Smith strikes again! His videos are so brilliant!

My mind is officially blown by that Rain trailer. I salute whoever is responsible for that. I'd probably go as far as to say its even better than any trailer the BBC would produce.

The "rain" trailer is one of the best things I've ever seen on Youtube - beautiful!

The 'Rain' trailer was amazing. Imagine an episode simply being called, Rain...

That impressionist is simply amazing. Uncanny.

Did anyone else notice how long it took for Jon Pertwee's cheekbones to raise to Tom Baker smile in that face morph.

Literally how on earth can Rain be fake? There's literally new footage in there. I'm not saying it's not but just......how?!

that rain trailer was amazing. The 50th made with models was a real labour of love but does show how bad the current Clara model figure is!

Latwhovians fan trailers are amazing (the guy who made the trilogy trailer at the bottom of the article)

The Pandorica version of "muscles"...oh man, I'm just sad I didn't think of that first!

There is barely any morph between Matt and Peter. Are you sure he is not Matt from the future or something lol? :D  The Rain trailer is amazing!

I'm just about tired of looking at Matts muscles now thank you very much XD love the morph and the rain trailer that's probably my favourite, very impressive!

I desperately need a gif of that shot of Capaldi stretching out his hand to Clara. That is amazing.

I can't stop watching that rain trailer. It, along with the other are the only glimpses of twelve we have!

I just think the Doctor Who episode trailers the BBC make are rather bad. The trailers should be like 

'The Doctor Trilogy Fan Trailer', the trilogy trailer is full of action and tension and gives you goosebumps, the trailers the BBC make for Doctor Who don't necessarily give me goosebumps, of course they get me excited though, the trailers the BBC made that I like the most is of course The Day Of The Doctor trailers! I just hope for Series 8 they make trailers that are full of action and give you goosebumps! ;) This is my opinion, I'm sure you all have different opinions! :)

That Rain trailer was astonishing.  Probably the most impressive fan trailer I've ever seen.  


Also, if you wouldn't mind LOOK!  AT MY MUSCLES!  LOOK AT MY MUSCLES LOOK AT MY MUSCLES!

Fantastic stuff this week. That rain trailers lovely, and the action figures recreation, whilst having the audio off, was an impressive feat. Anyone else get any joy pausing the morphing Doc's to see what the 'halfway' versions would have looked like?

The Rain trailer is miles better than the official one, if we're being honest. And watching Chris Eccleston's eyebrows rise to astronomical heights as he morphed into David Tennant was hilarious.

I saw the rain trailer yesterday. One of my friends posted it on Facebook thinking it was the real thing and everyone believed her, but I spotted it as a fake. It's really well made though. Very evocative of what I want series 8 to be.

Baker Street is excited for Series 8!

This has to be one of the best WaWs in a long time! "Rain" is beautiful, the "Look at my muscles" videos are hilarious, the face-morph video is kind of terrifying but very cool, the impression is fantastic and uncanny, and the trailer for the "Doctor Trilogy" is very nicely put together. Thanks for yet another great WaW, DWTV!

That trailer just gave me an idea... 


Anyone like How I Met Your Mother? The Series 7 episode "Trilogy Time" shows Ted and Marshall (and later Barney) watching the entire Star Wars original trilogy every 3 years. 


What about a Doctor Trilogy time... Except instead of three years... Three months. 


No regrets. 


Better yet, three weeks.

Peter Davidson's face morphes into Colin Baker's smug smile (I am the Doctor Ha Ha Ha) it's just hilarious.

Honestly, seeing all the things these talented people make I feel determined to do something myself.

The BBC should make trailers like Rain to keep us going in between the series. It wouldn't tell us anything but it would be just beautiful and we could watch it over and over again.

John Smith is one helluva talented person.  Rain is very evocative.  S/he does awesome vids.

A great Weird and Wonderful today. My highlights are The beautiful Rain trailer, The quite funny Look at my muscles (Pandorica version), The amazing Matt Smith impression and The epic Doctor Trilogy Trailer.

@The Living Angel Youtuber who goes by 'John Smith' he's very illusive, responsible for the very publicized and honorable 50th trailer from before the real one came out (with the burning tardis) great great stuff.

@The Living Angel Considering that wasn't real I...I just...it almost made me want to cry...I am so sad Matt's gone, but every time I see something like that I just get so excited. I look at Capaldi in that costume I can see the entire history of the show, classic and new, everything...August is going to be incredible.

@JulianPrime He uses software to put Capaldi's head on someone else's body. He's also really good at altering old footage to make it look new. Check out his "Making Of" videos. They're pretty impressive.

@Iris Wildthyme Well, to be fair the trailer the BBC gave out a few days ago was only meant to be a teaser...
