Richard Nixon makes for an excellent Doctor Who promo

Thanks to Netflix, I’ve rediscovered my fondness for Doctor Who, that most classic and long-running of British sci-fi series. The sixth season’s première is right around the corner, and the BBC has released this excellent prequel/​promo for the season that involves Richard Nixon, the Oval Office, a creepy phonecall, and something… else. Not surprisingly, it was written by Steven Moffat, who has been responsible for some of the best Who in recent memory.
