I can’t believe it’s nearly over. There are only 2 weeks – that’s only 2 more episodes – until season 9 comes to an end.
Am I sad that the series is ending, or am I excited for the finale and conclusion? I can’t decide. Either way, we get to see River at Christmas! I’m wishing away the weeks to see how they sneak her back into the Doctor’s time-line.
Back to my point, I wanted to share this absolutely fantastic, spine-chilling, goose-pimple-inducing, fan-made trailer for the season finale. It’s called the “Hybrid”. If you’re a few weeks behind, consider this a spoiler warning as it contains clips and a brilliant speech from previous episodes.
Hybrids. Once you start to think about it, Doctor Who is full of them. The trailer, very cleverly, cuts together a story of a Hybrid Warrior, and the reasons the Doctor left Gallifrey to begin with, as Davros’ memorable, chilling speech narrates.
It even puts forward a montage of candidates for this Hybrid Warrior – some unlikely, but others are quite interesting to think about. Here are some of the examples from the trailer:
Ashildr: Human and Mire.
Captain Jack Harkness: Human and time itself.
Dalek (from series 1’s “Dalek”): Dalek and Human.
Daleks (from series 9’s “The Witch’s Familiar”): Dalek and Time Lord.
Melody/River: Human and Time Lord.
DoctorDonna: Human and Time Lord.
Dalek Sec and Dalek Humans: Dalek and Human.
Osgood(s): Human and Zygon.
Bad Wolf: Human and the Time Vortex.
Laszlo: Human and Pig Slave.
Meta Crisis Doctor: Human and Time Lord.
Jenny: Human and Time Lord.
There are a lot of hybrid hints throughout series 9 in particular, foreshadowing a possible hybrid-based finale. I hope so. Having closure on the hybrid arc would be fantastic!
Did you enjoy the trailer? Are you looking forward to the season finale?
