Watch Now: Prequel Teaser Video For ‘Doctor Who’ Series 6!

The BBC has just released a prequel video to The Impossible Astronaut, the first episode of Doctor Who Series 6. Kicking off the new series on April 23, The Impossible Astronaut is the first chapter in a two-part adventure set in the United States. In the lead up to the premiere, show runner Steven Moffat has released a short prequel teaser to give fans a taste of what we can expect. You can see the video at the bottom of this post.

The first two episodes of Doctor Who Series 6 (or Season 32 if you’re a classic fan!) feature the return of Matt Smith and his portrayal of the Eleventh Doctor. Reprising their roles as his companions are the married couple Amy Pond and Rory Williams, played by Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill respectively. The enigmatic River Song also appears in these two episodes, played by Alex Kingston, who will be featuring prominently in this series and — according to Moffat — her mysteries and relation to the Doctor will be revealed during the course of the season as well.

In other Doctor Who news, however, The Doctor Who News Page has recently reported of a rumor that another new Series 6 trailer may be released around Saturday, March 26. Keep your eyes peeled on the web over the weekend, just in case. If it hits the web, you can be sure that Geeks of Doom will have it here posted for you.

The Impossible Astronaut, and its follow-up episode Day of the Moon, are both written by Steven Moffat and directed by Toby Hanes. The prequel video released by the BBC apparently has a great deal of visual clues (including a couple of obvious ones) that give a lot of hints as to the premiere episodes of the season. Viewers of the video are “advised to watch very carefully,” according to the BBC.
