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.
For those who saw the Doctor Who Christmas Special, entitled A Christmas Carol, if you stuck around for the end credits you would have been treated to the first teaser trailer for Series 6 of Doctor Who… and it’s a ripper.

Filming and production is continuing on Series 6, so this teaser trailer includes footage from episodes that are mostly from the first part of the season. Included in the trailer is a great deal of portions from the opening two episodes set in the United States. Doctor Who Series 6 will continue the multi-series story arc of “The Silence,” and more secrets are to be revealed about the mysterious River Song.
Doctor Who Series 6 is executive produced by showrunner Steven Moffat, and will feature Matt Smith continuing his portrayal of the eleventh Doctor. Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill are also returning, reprising their roles as Amy Pond and Rory Williams respectively, traveling with the Doctor as his companions. River Song, as mentioned, is also back for Series 6 as portrayed by Alex Kingston.
If you’re a Doctor Who fan and the Christmas Special as well as the Doctor Who Proms being aired on BBC America just aren’t enough Time Lord insanity for you, then you’re in luck: the BBC has announced that the fourth and final Doctor Who Adventure Game is to be released online just after A Christmas Carol is screened on UK television.
The best part? The “monsters” in this game are the Vashta Nerada, the swarming shadows that consume flesh. Fans may remember that the Vashta Nerada first appeared in Silence In The Library and Forest of the Dead, the two episodes written by Steven Moffat that introduced the character of River Song. And while those episodes saw David Tennant‘s 10th Doctor attempt to outwit the shadow creatures, in this online game, it will be Matt Smith‘s 11th incarnation of the Doctor who’ll battle the threat, along with companion Amy Pond.
