2 Scenes in the new Doctor Who trailers that show promise

There are two scenes in the new Doctor Who trailers, that for me, really show the promise of what Doctor Who can be at its best and justify the hope that some of us fans have had regarding Stephen Moffat taking over the show.

Scene 1 shown in the first trailer:

Newly regenerated Doctor stand in a field facing the TARDIS looking upon her lovingly with excitement in his voice and asks

"OK what have you got for me this time?"

Thats a great scene. It shows the bond between the Doctor and the TARDIS. Its not just a vehicle for him to travel. Its a gateway to adventure. He loves the TARDIS.

It also expresses the concept that, more often than not, its the TARDIS taking him to unexpected times and places ,than it is the Doctor piloting the TARDIS.

Scene 2 shown in second trailer:

Its night and the Doctor lies in a field of grass with, soon to be companion, Amy Pond staring up at the stars. These arent just lights in the sky to the Doctor they are places to be traveled to.

Then he utters the line ...

"All of time and space everywhere and anywhere every star that ever was. Where do you want to start?"

This is Doctor Who at its best. Unlimited potential and possibilities. Stories that can (AND SHOULD) take place throughout all of time and space. Give us more of the Doctor on space stations and starships. Ancient planets and modern Cardif.

Where will they start?
