Doctor Who is “Harrowing”

Matt Smith has tantalisingly stated that the sixth series of Doctor Who that is shortly due to air will be “harrowing” for the crew of the good ship TARDIS.

When the show returns in the spring, the Doctor and his friends will be facing a huge array of monsters and will have to battle for their personal relationships as well. Smith commented:

“The Doctor and Amy are going to be faced with some really harrowing and seismic choices about their relationship and who they are.”

The newest series of Doctor Who will also feature an exciting new menace for the Doctor to deal with and the buzz circulating is that it will be one of the scariest that the Doctor has ever come up against, as Smith confirmed:

“I do think we’ve got one of the greatest monsters, especially during my tenure on the show, but I think in the history of it.”

This year we will also learn more about River Song and who she really is, Matt has promised fans that the reveal will be a truly satisfying one but an important question is will we see the return of any old foes? The show’s producers are keeping tight lipped but seem to be leaning towards newer monsters rather than older ones. However, it would not be a huge surprise if an army of Daleks or Cybermen turned up at some point!

Doctor Who will be returning to BBC One and BBC America this Spring!

One Response to Doctor Who is “Harrowing”

  1. Maxtible Crust says:

    This is refering to the monster in the opening two-parter isn’t it? Can’t wait to see what they’ve come up with….

    A shoestring budget + very little time + a genius like John Friedlander = a great memorable monster (sometimes)

    Loads of money + a reasonable amount of time + CGI = generally rubbish looking instantly forgetable creature (sometimes)
