We’re just days away from the long-awaited season 6 premiere of Doctor Who, “The Impossible Astronaut,” and we’ve got the official episode preview to tide us over until then.

It’s only 30 seconds long, but it presents an epic, sweeping view of what it’s like when The Doctor and his companions (including River Song) finally make it to America, where they’re called upon by none other than Richard Milhaus Nixon (yes, that was his middle name) to answer a grave threat.

Watch the preview below, then follow the jump to check out the excellent Doctor Who casket we found. And don’t forget to tell us what you think about both in the comments!

If you’re getting ready to fill out that nerd will of yours (You know, the one where you stipulate that ALL your comics, especially your Dark Knight Returns #1, must be buried with you.), you might want to put this Doctor Who-themed casket from the folks at Creative Coffins on your list, so you can be laid to rest in style when both your hearts stop beating and you run out of regenerations. This bad boy features your name in an old-school Who logo (it most closely resembles the one from the Tom Baker era), along with a TARDIS spinning through space and time, and the sides are decorated with Cybermen and Daleks. The only thing that would make it better (and it’s still really badass) is if the coffin were just TARDIS, and then people at your funeral could really say “The Angels Have the Phone Box.”
