At the time of writing this post, it’s less than 12 hours before the launch of the new season of Doctor Who in the United States. And as we continue our countdown to the premiere for our Week of Geek, the BBC has released new images from the opening two episodes of Series 6 – including 3 pictures in particular that should be considered MAJOR SPOILERS… so if you do not wish to be spoiled before The Impossible Astronaut airs, don’t scroll to the bottom of this post!
Doctor Who Series 6 features the return of the Eleventh Doctor as portrayed by Matt Smith. Amy Pond (Karen Gillan) and Rory Williams (Arthur Darvill) are also back – as is the enigmatic River Song (Alex Kingston) whose secrets are set to be revealed during this season. Series 6 continues many of the overarching story arcs and themes from the previous season, including “Silence Will Fall” – and introduces new villains The Silents.
While the two opening episodes are directed by Toby Haynes and written by Steven Moffat, later episodes feature collaborations from Neil Gaiman, Mark Gatiss, Toby Whithouse, and many more.
You can check out the photos, but let this be your last warning: some pictures could be considered MAJOR SPOILERS.
