"The Bells of Saint John" - MSN's Spoiler Free Teasers

In the midst of all the chaos, it's worth remembering that we're treated to a new run of eight episodes starting tonight with "The Bells of Saint John".  Lorna Cooper has posted a few teasers on MSN:

  1. The chemistry between Matt Smith and Jenna-Louise Coleman is hotter than July.
  2. The Bells of Saint John is set in modern-day London so don't expect to see any famous historical figures.
  3. Look out for the Doctor's new nemesis, the Spoonheads. I must say, they are particularly creepy. I was a tad unnerved while I watched. OK - they're not the Daleks but then, what is?
  4. Despite dying twice already, you will totally buy into this third appearance of the rather mysterious new companion. Clara slips into the role as if she's never been away.
  5. The Bells of Saint John is, like the Christmas episodes, a standalone instalment (albeit with far less schmaltz). If you've never watched Doctor Who, it's a good place to start.
  6. Matt Smith's Doctor has a new wardrobe which I personally describe as Teddy Boy-geek. It really suits him. In fact, I'd go as far as saying, he looks pretty hot... in a nerdy way. (Who is she trying to kid?  He looks hot regardless.)
  7. Colm McCarthy, at the helm of a Doctor Who episode for the first time, will be directing Hollywood action movies (Bond?) soon if this episode is anything to go by. Talk about slick, fast-paced direction! There are also some wonderful visual techniques.
  8. London's new and old iconic landmarks are put to good use in this episode. There is a scene involving the Shard which could be straight out of a James Bond movie. Matt Smith looked as if he was having a blast - and you will too when The Bells of St John airs on Easter Saturday.
"The Bells of Saint John" airs tonight on BBC1 at 6.15pm.
