New “Who” trailer is Spaghetti Cyborg cornucopia

There's a new Sheriff in time...

It escaped online mere minutes after being shown at this weekend’s first official “Doctor Who” convention, with all of the grungy cam-vision goodness that you might expect it to have.  Now, by the grace of the Crooked Warden, you can see things all proper and hi-def like.

I refer, of course, to the first teaser trailer for season seven of “Doctor Who”, which is being made even as I type these words.  If you’re spoiler-phobic, I guess that you’ll have stopped reading this post, so for the rest of us what follows is a wee bit spoiley.

The gang's all here...

We’ve got cyborg cowboys, an Egyptian lady, a bunch more robots, snowy locations, eyes on sticks, explosions, horses, Ben Browder from “Farscape” and enough western shenanigans to suggest that this “Who” story set in old-timey USA could be the best slice of retro/alt-history SF with cowboys since “Back To The Future Part 3″ (I haven’t seen “Cowboys and Aliens” yet, so can’t comment on the quality or otherwise of that flick).

Ben Browder, with James Hetfield of Metallica's moustache. I hope he asked first...

All looking quite promising, I hope you’ll agree – and word has it that we may see it sooner than the widely rumoured November transmission date…
