The official Who website has launched a new tool to allow users to create their own Doctor Who trailer. Trailer Maker will offer users the chance to mix video clips, images, sound effects and music tracks together, to create their own Doctor Who footage.

Over the coming months more clips and sounds will be added so that users can interact with new content from the current series.

"With nearly 40,000 comics already published from the Comic Maker feature we thought it was time we pushed things even further and offered fans a chance to get creative with video," BBC website producer Rob Francis told "Users of the site have always been incredibly imaginative and we're extremely keen to encourage more of that creativity. Hopefully the Trailer Maker is something we can develop in the future to offer users many more exciting possibilities."

The trailers will be stored on the website for six months and given a unique code, so that users can show off and share their creations with friends and family.

There will also be new mini-adventures from series writers including James Moran, Keith Temple and Paul Cornell.
