Monday, October 3rd, 2011 at 11:02 am
Spoiler Alerts go out to all listeners, for the season finale for Doctor Who Series 6 — The Wedding Of River Song — is here, and finds the Doctor (Matt Smith) stepping forward to face his ultimate destiny at the fixed point in time at Lake Silencio in Utah. But before he allows the Silence to accomplish their goals, he begins to investigate their motivations. The quest will bring him answers – and more questions.
The result is a choice by River Song (Alex Kingston) that splits time apart, and the Doctor must find a way to restore the universe from the wibbly-wobbly alternate timeline, and the only way to do so is his accept the demise at Lake Silencio. How will the Doctor get out of this one? And what is the mysterious question for which the answer is “Silence Will Fall”?
During TARDISblend 42, we review the events of The Wedding Of River Song, and look at the revelation of the question that must never be asked, and the impact it may have on the future of Doctor Who. We also look into the answers surrounding the events at the beginning of the season – did Steven Moffat wrap everything up as expected?
Dorium Maldovar (Simon Fisher Becker) returns in this episode in a very inventive manner, and provides some clues to things we may see in Series 7 and Series 8, as we make our predictions and wish list for what we want in the future of Doctor Who. We also discuss the badass scenes shared between Amy Pond (Karen Gillan) and Rory Williams (Arthur Darvill) in the season finale.
Later, we make some Classic Doctor Who recommendations, discuss what YOU had to say in comments on previous episodes, and highlight what is coming next week for our next show!
