Doctor Who prequel reveals what's at stake, and the questions the Doctor cannot face

If you weren't already on the edge of your seat for this fall's Doctor Who episodes, then this prequel to "Let's Kill Hitler" ought to do the trick.

This two-minute video reveals just what's really at stake for the Doctor and his companions as he rushes to fulfill the promise he made to Amy. It also gives us a terrible glimpse of a dark moment for the Doctor. And most of all, it does something that I've been missing from some of Steven Moffat's Who writing: It gives us a moment of genuine, honest emotion. God help us all if the Doctor can't keep his word.

Doctor Who comes back in just 12 days, on August 27.

I am really curious to see how they address the fact that the Doctor will confront a man responsible for the deaths of so many, and can likely do nothing. Hitler is likely one of those 'fixed point' in time.
