Watch 3 new thrilling clips from Dr. Who's upcoming Hitler episode

The BBC has just released three new thrilling clips for the next Doctor Who episode, ''Let's Kill Hitler.'' Hold on to the TARDIS, because we think this one's gonna be one heck of a mad, wild ride!

The three new clips—two from the episode itself and one featuring actress Karen Gillan, who plays companion Amy Pond, introducing the episode—give us a nice sneak peek at what's coming up for the Doctor (Matt Smith) and his faithful companions Amy and Rory (Arthur Darvill) in ''Let's Kill Hitler.''

This is the official episode synopsis:

In the desperate search for Melody Pond, the TARDIS crash lands in Thirties Berlin, as the time-travelling drama returns for the second half of the series shown earlier in the year.

The Doctor comes face to face with the greatest war criminal in the Universe. And Hitler.

Old friendships are tested to their limits as the Doctor suffers the ultimate betrayal and learns a harsh lesson in the cruellest warfare of all. As precious time ebbs away, the Doctor must teach his adversaries that time travel has responsibilities. And he must succeed before an almighty price is paid.

The Doctor is played by Matt Smith, Hitler by Albert Welling, Amy by Karen Gillan and Rory by Arthur Darvill.

Now take a look at the clips:

Between the Doctor screaming ''Somebody shot my TARDIS'' in a Nazi war room, Amy and Rory being stuck in what Rory says is ''a giant robot replica of my wife'' (didn't you guys just suddenly feel like we were being thrown back to some old '70s sci-fi flick for a moment there?), those Medusa-like robots, Hitler making an appearance, and yet another Star Trek-like bridge thingy (the Star Trek and Star Wars references have just been piling up ever since Steven Moffat found himself at the helm of the sci-fi series—pun intended), we just can't wait to see the episode!

Doctor Who's ''Let's Kill Hitler'' will air on BBC One, BBC America and Space on Aug. 27, 2011.
