Series 6 (Season 6) - Eleventh Doctor


The 2011 Season consists of 13 episodes. The following is a list of the names of the episodes and original UK viewing dates:

1. The Impossible Astronaut (Part1 - Episode 1) - 23rd April 2011 on BBC One
     Writer: Steven Moffat                        
     Director
: Toby Haynes

Doctor Who 2011 Picture - Doctor Who Series 6 This is the 1st story of Doctor Who Series 6. For the first time in the revived series, it will open with a two-parter in which The Doctor, Amy and Rory arrive in Utah in the 1960′s and get caught up in an adventure that marks the return of River Song.

The two-part opening story was filmed in the United States for the first time.

The opening story of the sixth series will see the Doctor, Amy and Rory travel back to the 1960s and visit the Oval Office of the White House in Washington DC.

Doctor, Amy and Rory find themselves on a secret summons that takes them on an adventure from the desert in Utah – right to the Oval Office itself.

This episode will feature the Silence, the force responsible for causing the TARDIS to explode in 'The Pandorica Opens'. We will discover what the Silence are? People? Group?
 

2. Day of the Moon (Part 2 - Episode 2) - 30 April 2011
     Writers: Steven Moffat
     Director
: Toby Haynes

The FBI are looking for River Song, Rory and Amy. The world has been occupied by aliens and they can trust no-one. The Doctor is trapped.

3. The Curse of the Black Spot (1 Episode) - 7 May 2011
     Writers
: Stephen Thompson
     Director
: Jeremy Webb

Guest Starring: Lily Cole as a mysterious creature that haunts a pirate ship. Hugh Bonneville will play the Pirate Captain.

The TARDIS trio land in the 17th century and find a crew of pirates who are being terrorised by a siren.

Lily Cole is best known for her modelling work, but also starred in the 2009 film The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus with Johnny Depp.

4. The Doctor's Wife (1 Episode) - 14 May 2011
     Writers: Neil Gaiman
     Director
: Richard Clark

Guest Starring: Suranne Jones (Karen McDonald in Coronation Street) as Idris


Written by Neil Gaiman. Directed by Richard Clark.
In a bubble universe at the very edge of reality, the Doctor finds an alien junkyard planet called The Room. He meets Idris – a very important character and someone who may be an old acquaintance. Although Idris is preparing for death as the story begins, she doesn’t actually die. By the time the Doctor and friends meet her she’s gone mad and ends up biting the Time Lord. Guest stars Suranne Jone and Michael Sheen as a bad guy called The House.

Suranne Jones will play a character called Idris in an episode written by bestselling sci-fi and fantasy author Neil Gaiman. She plays someone who is beautiful and who bites “and who might just turn out to be an old acquaintance with a new face”.

Gaiman has teased on the internet that he’d taken up a “…plot point from an old episode called ‘The War Games‘. The episode begins “in void-space, with something – or someone – we have not seen since The War Games and a knock on the TARDIS door.”

The TARDIS breaks down on an alien junkyard world. “Although Idris is preparing for death as the story begins, she doesn’t actually die. By the time the Doctor and friends meet her she’s gone mad and ends up biting the Time Lord …”. Who is she? Romana? A Human Tardis, the Rani? Idris sounds a bit like Tardis.

The last story of the Second Doctor (Patrick Troughton) was called 'War Games' and it featured SIDRATs. 'SIDRAT' were proto-TARDIS’ (Space and Inter-Dimensional Robot All-purpose Transporter) that were used by the War Lords to abduct human soldiers from history to take part in the war games. So perhaps SIDRAT’s make a return in his episode.

Neil Gaiman has said his episode was originally titled The House of Nothing. Filming was in August 2010.  Suranne Jones has previously appeared on the Doctor Who spinoff The Sarah Jane Adventures as an evil incarnation of the Mona Lisa.

5. The Rebel Flesh (Part 1 - Episode 1) - 21 May 2011
     Writers: Matthew Graham
     Director
: Julian Simpson

Working title for episode 6 was Gangers. In a monastery on a remote island in the near future, an industrial accident will take on a terrible human shape. A cloning storyline will see the Doctor and the TARDIS cloned. The TARDIS trio will also battle a new life form and have to dodge pools of acid. The episodes will play a pretty big part in the whole series arc.

6. The Almost People (Part 2 - Episode 2) - 28 May 2011
     Writers: Matthew Graham
     Director
: Julian Simpson

Graham previously wrote the episode 'Fear Her' for the show's second series in 2006.

7. A Good Man Goes To War  (Part 1 - Episode 1) - 4 June 2011
     Writers: Steven Moffat
     Director
: Peter Hoar

End of the Spring half of Series 6.

Working titles were Demons Run and His Darkest Hour. Waiting for the TARDIS crew is the battle of Demon’s Run, and the Doctor’s darkest hour. Can the truth about River Song save the Time Lord’s soul? The Cybermen, Sontarans and Silurians are set to appear in the story. The episode will lead to a shocking cliffhanger that will change the Doctor’s life forever…

There has been alot of speculation on the internet of what will happen in the climax of the last episode of first part (spring half of the series) of Doctor Who Series 6. Will Amy Pond will be killed off? Will we find out Amy Pond is really River Song? Is Amy Pond really a Time Lady? Is Amy Pond Omega's daughter or River Song's lost daughter? Will Omega appear at the end of the episode?

The last episode maybe called 'The Wedding of the Doctor' and could feature River Song. This would be a great way to end the half-way through the season and perhaps there could be a twist that River Song tricked him into it.

Finally, episode seven, which will leave us with the cliffhanger before the show takes a break of a few months, will be Steven Moffat's A Good Man Goes To War.


8. Let's Kill Hitler (Part 2 - Episode 2) - Autumn - 27 August 2011
     Writers: Steven Moffat
     Director
: Richard Senior

In the desperate search for Melody Pond, the TARDIS crash lands in 1930s Berlin, bringing the Doctor face to face with the greatest war criminal in the Universe. And Hitler. The Doctor must teach his adversaries that time travel has responsibilities – and in so doing, learns a harsh lesson in the cruellest warfare of all.

Old friendships are tested to their limits as the Doctor suffers the ultimate betrayal and learns a harsh lesson in the cruellest warfare of all. As precious time ebbs away, the Doctor must teach his adversaries that time travel has responsibilities. And he must succeed before an almighty price is paid.

It features Hitler and Nazis. Mels (Nina Toussaint-White) and she is introduced in Let’s Kill Hitler. Who is the mysterious Mels?

It starts with a young Amy and Rory and eventually the Doctor arrives and they’re older at that point. Then for some reason we’re in Germany in the 40s and we stumble across Alex Kingston, River Song. I won’t tell you how or why she appears, but it’s great Doctor Who. And then of course this creature called the Tesselecta comes in and adds the dynamic of the monster, as it were. But underneath all that the Doctor’s dying.

The Tesselecta has that sort of wonderful ability and it’s a monster operated by tiny miniaturised people inside. It’s a cracker. It’s a real cracker. Again, [that's] Steven’s mad and brilliant mind. Basically it’s sort of like a universal policeman and goes round the universe catching criminals. Hitler is a criminal guilty of war crimes so the Tesselecta can come and it can impersonate his chief of staff or whatever and pop him off or take him in or imprison him. So you can imagine what happens when the Tesselecta meets River Song, and the Doctor for that matter. So it’s trying to reprimand Hitler.”

9. Night Terrors  (1 Episode) - 3 September 2011
     Writers: Mark Gatiss
     Director
: Richard Clark

The Doctor receives a distress call from the scariest place in the Universe: a child’s bedroom. Every night George lies awake, terrorised by every fear you can possibly imagine – fears that live in his bedroom cupboard. His parents are getting desperate – George needs a doctor. Fortunately for George, his desperate pleas for help break through the barriers of all time and space and the Doctor makes a house call. But allaying his fears won’t be easy; because George’s monsters are real.

A modern day episode set in an apartment block focussing on a young boy called George who has a nervous disposition. He is particularly scared of something in his cupboard, most likely, the scary dolls.

Originally the working title of the episode was 'What Are Little Boys Made Of?'. Mark Gatiss' story for Series 6 of Doctor Who was originally scheduled for the first half of Series 6 and was aired during the second half of the series in the Autumn. In the first half of the series it was replaced by an episode written by Steve Thompson, who wrote Episode 2 of last year's Sherlock series, 'The Blind Banker'. This new story was the third episode of the series, with Neil Gaiman's story moved back a week to become Episode 4.

10. The Girl Who Waited (1 Episode) - 10 September 2011
     Writers: Tom MacRae
     Director
: Nick Hurran

Amy is trapped in a quarantine facility for victims of an alien plague – a plague that will kill the Doctor in a day – as the time-travelling drama continues.

The Doctor can use the TARDIS to smash through time and break in, but then Rory is on his own. He must find Amy and bring her back to the TARDIS before the alien doctors can administer their medicine. Rory is about to encounter a very different side to his wife. Can he rescue Amy before she is killed by kindness?

MacRae previously wrote the two-part Series 2 story 'Rise Of The Cybermen' and 'The Age Of Steel' for David Tennant's first series in 2006. Apparently the working title of the episode was The Green Anchor.

11. God Complex (1 Episode) - 17 September 2011
     Writers: Toby Whithouse
     Director
: Nick Hurran

Guest starring David Walliams as a mole-like alien called Gibbis.

The TARDIS crew get trapped in a hotel where the geography keeps shifting and is full of ventriloquists’ dummies and balloons. They enter nightmares through the hotel rooms. It’s set entirely in one location and will be one of the more nightmarish episodes.

This story was originally meant to be scheduled for the 2010 series of Doctor Who but got pushed back in favour of The Vampires of Venice instead. Writer Toby Whithouse was responsible for 2006 episode School Reunion and 2010 episode The Vampires of Venice.

12. Closing Time (Part 1 - Episode 1) - 24 September 2011
     Writers:  Gareth Roberts
     Director
: Steve Hughes

Guest starring James Corden and Daisy Haggard.

Reintroduction of the Cybermats and return of Craig Owens, Sophie and the Cybermen.

A Cybership crashed underground a long time ago and a city (Colchester) has built up over it. The Cybermat is sneaking around a shop stealing electricity to bring the Cybermen back to life. Something about failed conversions. Matt’s wearing the long coat throughout.

13. Wedding of River Song (Part 1 - Episode 1) - 1 October 2011
     Writers:  Steven Moffat
     Director
: Richard Senior

This will be the final episode of Series 6 in 2011. Will this episode explain the Silence? Will Omega return? Will the Time Lords return? Has the Doctor any new foes?

Features reappearance of Winston Churchill, River Song, Dorium and the Silence.

The episode with all the answers, as the Doctor journeys to Lake Silencio for his date with destiny. The next story might be on December 25, 2011 on Christmas Day.

What are your thoughts of Series 5 and Series 6?


Did you enjoy Series 5? Some people say it lacked the 'wow' factor of Russell T Davies's shows.
Leave your opinion for all to read.

Doctor Who Series 6 PictureSeries 6 has been commissioned for 13 episodes, with 7 episodes being broadcast in Spring 2011 and the remaining 6 episodes in Autumn 2011.

About Series 6

Steven Moffat in Doctor Who Confidential said that two of the big story mysteries will be resolved in series 6. "What is that, who is that, who are the silence, what's coming?" teased Moffat. "The whole point of the silence is next series. Also, River Song ... who is she really? That's what we're going to find out next year," he said.

1. River Song

Who is River Song? Who is she really? And what's the identity of the man she murdered? She referred to him as 'the best man I've ever known' - was it the Doctor or even the Master? Is she human, Time Lord? Is she simply an archaeologist that collects information and knows some secrets about the Doctor and his future?

Here are some ideas of who she could be:

- Perhaps the Doctor's wife
- She a Time Agent like Captain Jack?
- Omega's Wife: Originally Omega's wife, then after his accident became the Doctor's wife and the mother of his thirteen children.
- Daughter of the Rani
- She the essence of life aka River of Life and protects the Doctor from the baddies. She really works for the White Guardian
- Time Lord Trainee

2. Time Field Cracks, the Silence and the mysterious external force that took control of the TARDIS

The big question is who created the cracks in the Universe? What is the mysterious external force that took control of the TARDIS and tried to make it explode? There is speculation on the internet that Omega or the Time Lords are returning. It could be a splitter group from the Time Lords that are returning?

3. Possible Monsters for Series 6

Daleks may also appear. Possible monsters to feature in the new series are: Zygons, Ice Warriors, Yeti, Tractators.

History

Filming started in Doctor Who Series 6 in July/August 2010. Series 6 of Doctor Who scheduled for broadcast in Spring 2011 and will have 13 episodes.
