U.S. fans of Doctor Who only have to wait a few weeks for the sixth season to make its stateside debut on BBC America. The thirteen-episode season will kick off on April 23rd with a two-parter set in the United States. Photos, videos and a few spoilers ahead!
Steven Moffat wrote the season opener himself. Not only is it set in the U.S., but for the first time ever, the show was filmed here. The episode brings the Doctor, Amy, Rory and River Song back together in Utah. From the trailer, it also appears he'll be visiting the White House. That’s the vague description. If you want more details, read the description BBC America released below.
Moffat states that this season will not only be scary, but also funny, moving and reveling in its own insanity, which I expect is just how fans of the show like it. Moffat also stated the following:
The remark about every episode working for new viewers is good news for me as I’m seasons behind on the series and it’s doubtful I’ll be able to get caught up before Season 6 premieres.
You’ll catch more than a few glimpses of the premiere episode in the videos below:
