Watch The New Prequel For Bells Of Saint John!

The BBC hype machine worked its way back into life today with a wheezing, groaning noise to deliver unto us a new prequel to the first episode of Series 7b, The Bells of Saint John.

Although you won’t need to have watched this to follow the events of the episode (we hope), it’s a nice little diversion as the Doctor takes a little break from hunting for other incarnations of Clara to sit on a swing and talk to a little girl. You can watch the two minute prequel/prologue, written by Steven Moffat, below.

A thought about the prequel: we find it kind of beautiful that, after all he’s said and done across a millennium or more of life, he can still sit there and treat a little girl as if she’s telling him the most interesting story in the world. If Series 7b has more moments like that, then we’ll be very glad to keep up with it.
