New Doctor Who trailer for Wednesday

Having whetted our appetites with the two teaser trailers last week, the first episode prelude a couple of days later, and then an "iconic" image for the episode itself, the BBC are now about to unleash a new 60 second trailer which will premier on BBC1 on Wednesday.

No time has been confirmed for the trailer at present, though it is expected to during primetime viewing in the evening.

The trailer will also be broadcast on the CBBC channel, but in a shortened 20 second form to remove some of the 'scarier' scenes, as BBC Publicity clarified:
The trailer is a 60" and we usually play them on CBBC as well (for obvious reasons). We think this will be the first that will need to be edited down to a 20" to make it suitable and remove the scary bits (remember that we have six year olds and younger watch CBBC as well as twelve year olds)

The 20" is just for CBBC. The 60" also has a 40" cut-down version that will be rotated in.

Update: the 60" trailer was originally reported for Tuesday evening, but has been put back to Wednesday.
