The BBC has released a stunning clip from the first part of the Doctor Who Series 8 finale, Dark Water – but there’s a bit of hoop jumping required to see it.
Below you’ll see the tweet that provides the instructions, and waiting 90 seconds for a clip you’re possibly extremely interested in seeing (hey, you’re a Doctor Who fan, this is a Doctor Who fan site, you see what I’m getting at?) could prove especially trying.
Especially if you’re not a “Cumberbitch” (apologies, but it is – inexplicably in this age of greater focus on cross-gender equality – a term used regularly by fans of the Sherlock and Star Trek actor).
Worse still, there’s no way of skipping forwards to the moment the words “Doctor Who” appear in the video. However, the interactive nature of the video is impressive. Once you click on the show title, you’re taken to another video, one that gives you a nice glimpse of the Doctor, the Cybermen and Missy outside St Paul’s Cathedral from Dark Water, written by Steven Moffat and directed by Rachel Talalay
For an exclusive clip from Dark Water, see the new BBC drama trailer and click on 'Doctor Who' at about 90 seconds in http://t.co/iNHLVTNsc6

Go on – that 90 second wait was worth it, wasn’t it?
