Doctor Who's New TARDIS and New Clips!

It finally has more than one room again!

Well, The new season of Doctor Who begins Easter Sunday in the UK, and us diehard American Who fans have to wait until April 17th to legally watch the show... Unless you bought a plane ticket to the UK, and flew over just to watch it. If you're an old school fan of the show then you know, most of the time, when a new Doctor rolls around, so does a new TARDIS, and the newest version harkens back to an older Who era. 

This picture, posted by GeekSyndacite, remind me of a mixture between the old and the new. For the past four seasons, the TARDIS just seemed to be one giant room located in a tiny police box, and this was not always the case. The TARDIS always had one main room, but it was attached to many other rooms as well. There were actual episodes where the Doctor would become lost in his own TARDIS. (Tom Baker run I believe, but for the life of me I can't remember the episode name) There was also speculation that, like the universe, the interior of the TARDIS was always growing, and that the immensity of the interior could be unimaginable. 
 
Anyway, the new TARDIS takes the color scheme of the old and adds on some stair cases and obviously, some more rooms. Below, we have pictures of the new Doctor and his new companion, chillin' in the TARDIS.

In addition to these new pictures, there are some new clips floating around the web that deal with the new season... And someone doesn't know how to fly a TARDIS! 
 
It's his first day, so don't jump to conclusions just yet. We've already had werewolves in a Doctor Who episode, but WHERE are the Vampires? Don't worry... This season has an episode called Vampires in Venice, and I'm loving Matt Smith's comedic timing in this bit.
 
Here's one last one to wet your whistle.
  Hold on hold on... Did I see a Silurian in there? 0:39. It might be an updated version of it. How about 0:47? If you don't know, now you do, the Weeping Angels are back. It looks like this season is going to go to more interesting places instead of urban Earth. Some more tombs (Tomb of the Cyberman again...maybe?), alien planets, and more space. Matt Smith seems to be fitting the roll, just from these trailers very well.
 
But what do you guys think? Will you watch this season? What are you excited to see?
