Moffat Hints: Who’s Dead?

Reports indicate that Steven Moffat has revealed a key element of the Doctor Who Series 6 opener. Tied in with the release of 4 separate covers for Doctor Who Magazine, it seems that one of our heroes is set to die in The Impossible Astronaut/Day of the Moon opening two parter!

So, get ready to wave goodbye to Amy Pond (Karen Gillan), Rory (Arthur Darvill), River Song (Alex Kingston) or even… the Doctor himself?!

That’s right spoilerphobes, we broke it for you, because it’s set to be on the cover of DWM, to whom Steven Moffat has already spoken…

“We’re not lying, we’re not cheating. One of those four people is going to die.

“The Doctor’s darkest hour is coming. Shows like ‘Doctor Who’ should have big, colourful, memorable moments that make you go, ‘What the hell?’ Well, this is one of them.”

This is quite a big-hitting statement to make – although of course what we don’t know is which one of the four is going to breathe their last. We’re pretty confident, however, that it won’t be Rory. Not again, anyway.

Unless The Grand Moff is in fact homaging South Park with his stewardship of the show!

“It’s hard to create a shock in ‘Doctor Who’ when we’ve already blown up the universe a couple of times. What do you do next?

“When I came up with this incredible, heart-wrenching twist, I thought, ‘We kill off one of the leads in the season opener. Who’s going to stop watching at that point?’ It lures you in.”

It’s a pretty audacious statement, and to see it in action will bring an extra degree of intensity to the new series when it returns on Saturday, April 23rd!
