We’re continuing our countdown to Doctor Who Series 6 for the Week of Geek, and the BBC is continuing to release more new images from the opening two episodes of the season: The Impossible Astronaut and Day of the Moon. The premiere episode kicks off on Saturday, April 23 on BBC in the UK and BBC America here in the USA. You can see the images at the bottom of this post, and be aware of some possible spoilery experiences upon viewing!
This photo collection includes stills from the episodes, a bunch of Behind-The-Scenes photos, and a couple of promotional photographs as well. Series 6 sees the return of Matt Smith as the Eleventh Doctor, and is joined with Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill reprising their roles as the Doctor’s companions. River Song is back; portrayed by Alex Kingston who promises her mysterious character’s secrets will be revealed this year.
The two opening episodes were directed by Toby Haynes, and written by showrunner Steven Moffat â€” and continue many of the overarching story arc memes and themes that were running during the previous season.
