A brief glimpse of a new Dr Who character in the new series' launch trailer has fans pondering whether Moffat and co had taken some inspiration from Mass Effect.
The character is apparently a robot, but the whole blue glowy eyes and head-ridges thing brings Mass Effect's Garrus to mind, as several people on Twitter and Tumblr have noticed.

Nice to see Garrus Vakararian getting work at the 27 second mark in that Doctor Who TV spot. Shame he's been typecast as "an alien" again.
