It’s not often we dig up a trailer for something that isn’t going to appear on American screens and doesn’t even feature any footage from the movie or TV show it is attempting to trail, but this is rather good.

From this weekend, the UK TV channel Horror is screening episodes of classic Doctor Who—from the First Doctor to the Seventh—and have put together a beautiful animated trailer to whet appetites and generally encourage viewers.

And they’ve done such a good job you could easily use it to encourage fans of the recent series to dip a toe in classic Who waters, so here it is:

Of course, if you’re not where to start, have a gander at the clips on our Classic Doctor Who YouTube feed and see which Doctor and which story takes your fancy.
