Doctor Who Series 6 finally returns at 7.10pm on Saturday, August 27th with Let’s Kill Hitler!, an unforgettable title that sees the Doctor and friends visiting the Third Reich leader in 1930s Germany.

The BBC’s official programme copy is as follows:

In the desperate search for Melody Pond, the TARDIS crash lands in Thirties Berlin, as the time-travelling drama returns for the second half of the series shown earlier in the year.

The Doctor comes face to face with the greatest war criminal in the Universe. And Hitler.

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.

As always, the Doctor is played by Matt Smith, with guest star Albert Welling as Hitler. Amy Pond and Rory are played by Karen Gillan and the much admired Arthur Darvill.

We’ve also got a couple of clips, uploaded by those great chaps at DoctorWhoTV. Now, you might want to skip these as you’ll be finding out something very interesting (how did they keep THAT quiet?) and possibly putting two and two together if watch them both…

As well as all of that, you probably want to take a look at some images. Note that these might give something away that you don’t want to see until the show is aired, so scroll down with care!

  1. I’m really interested to see what’s going on now…

    What the heck is Amy doing to River?! That is River, right? Amy MUST be a auton or something! Just over a week left.

  3. Bobbygaga says:

    I wasn’t sure at first but I’m really starting to dig the Doctor’s new coat.

  4. Gruff says:

    Position is wrong. If you look carefully it’s something hidden behind Amy. I predict a robo-jellyfish.
