Doctor Who Prequel Clip: Which Is Scarier, Aliens Or Richard Nixon?

03.28.11 7 years ago

The sixth season of Doctor Who doesn’t premiere until April 23 (gaaaah, if only we had a Tardis), but the BBC has released a short prequel clip to go with those teasers from last week.  This prequel is supposed to lead directly into the first episode, “The Impossible Astronaut”, written by Steven Moffat.

The clip is pretty creepy until it gets hilarious when President Richard Nixon says, “There are no monsters in the oval office.” Everybody who’s heard his lengthy, tape recorded rant in support of aborting any mixed race babies would beg to differ.  That guy was totally a Dick Nixon.
