Van Gogh's Birthday & Doctor Who Trailer!

Vincent Van Gogh celebrates his 158th birthday today. So I guess it's fitting that today was also the debut of the first full-length trailer of the new season of Doctor Who. Wait, back up. Let me explain.

One of my favorite Doctor Who episodes from last season was "Vincent and the Doctor" in which the Doctor meets fellow madman and genius Vincent Van Gogh. Nothing earth-shattering or even epic happened in the episode, but Tony Curran seemed like he was born to play the great artist. Plus his scenes with Matt Smith and Karen Gillan, from the breathtaking starry outdoor scene displayed in the graphic above to the heartbreaking breakdown that hinted at the madness within, were amazing. It was a quiet, but powerfully emotional episode that deserve recognition.

So happy birthday Vincent, and to the rest, enjoy the season 6 trailer of Doctor Who:

Other than not having enough Rory, it was perfect. Definitely made me ridiculously excited for the new season set to premiere in less than a month's time.
