“Don’t Worry, We’re Not Going to Save Hitler!” Say Doctor Who Crew
Is there anything more exciting than a Doctor Who trailer? Explosions, mysteries, creatures, alien landscapes, the Doctor saving Adolf Hitler’s life. Wait. What?
The latest trailer for the current season’s back half has caused somewhat of a storm in a teacup since its first showing at Comic Con this year.
The controversy surrounds a clip from an upcoming episode (Let’s Kill Hitler) in which the Doctor and the gang appear to save Hitler’s life.
Piers Wenger, the show’s executive producer, was in attendance at BBC America’s session at the Television Critics Association press tour recently, and addressed the controversy promptly.
“Don’t worry, we’re not going to save Hitler,” said Wenger, much to the amusement of showrunner Steven Moffat and actors Matt Smith and Karen Gillan, who were also in attendance.
So that’s that then!
