↳ #12 - Rory Williams [a.k.a. Rory Pond, a.k.a. Rory The Roman] - Doctor Who

I want the TARDIS to appear from the ground, surrounded by fog. Matt Smith, followed by Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill will emerge from the TARDIS.

The crew get back inside the TARDIS and it sinks to the ground.
A simple nod to our time travelling friend, which also suggests that the Doctor, Amy and Rory did go to the Opening Ceremony, and we just didn’t see them.
At approximately 8pm across the 17 days of The London Olympics, we will give viewers the first exclusive look at a range of brand new original British drama coming up on BBC One – in the form of specially-made feature length trailers. From Hunted to The Paradise, Good Cop and The Secret of Crickley Hall, Shetland to Ripper Street, these new series highlight the exciting and broad range of tones, stories and worlds we want drama on BBC One to encapsulate.
Plus viewers will get an exclusive look at what’s coming up on EastEnders, Merlin, Accused and Doctor Who. It’s a fantastically diverse and ambitious combination of fiction coming up on BBC One in the coming months”
Ben Stephenson, Controller, BBC Drama Commissioning adds:“BBC One drama offers audiences the most vibrant and most original home grown drama in Britain today. This upcoming range of new drama titles are the very best of British, made with ambition and scale that I hope will capture the imagination of our audiences with the same spirit as the London 2012 Olympics.”
