Doctor Who, Dinosaurs on a Spaceship Trailer: Riddell

Yes, another tantalising trailer for the upcoming Doctor Who episode, “Dinosaurs on a Spaceship”.

The Doctor (Matt Smith) is battling to save an unmanned spaceship and its cargo of dinosaurs, so he puts together a band of rather unlikely helpers, including former Queen of Egypt, Nefertiti.

In this trailer, the Doctor recruits a big game hunter named Riddell, played by Rupert Graves. Echoing such classics as King Solomon’s Mines and Bhowani Junction, Graves looks to be in full-on Stewart Granger mode.

The episode was written by Doctor Who veteran Chris Chibnall (Camelot, Torchwood, Law & Order: UK) who told SFX that the idea started with the title. “I had a meeting with Steven Moffat, and he said, ‘I have just four words to say to you: Dinosaurs On A Spaceship.’”

Doctor Who Series 7 airs in the UK on Saturdays, 7:35pm on BBC1.

Doctor Who Season 7 airs in the US on Saturdays, 9pm ET on BBC America.
