The BBC has finally put Doctor Who fans out of their misery and confirmed that the second half of Series 6 will begin on 27 August 2011, although at present the time is yet to be confirmed.
Following the preview screening of Let’s Kill Hitler at the BFI on Monday, the BBC Press Office has gone into overdrive as expected, releasing some teasing quotes from The Grand Moff himself.
“The rules have changed, and the game is deadlier than ever. Out in the universe, where the earthly rules of time and space do not apply, Amy and Rory know only too well that their baby daughter needs them. For Melody Pond is destined to become River Song, mysterious archaeologist and convicted murderer – the woman who killed the best man she ever knew…
“The Doctor leads Amy and Rory across centuries and galaxies in a desperate search for baby Melody, but a terrible and inescapable date looms large. At 5.02pm on 22nd April 2011, the Doctor will die. These are his last days, and the quest for Melody his final mission.
“The search will result in a crash landing in Thirties Berlin and will bring them face to face with the greatest war criminal of all time. And Hitler. Old friendships will be tested to their limits as the Doctor suffers the ultimate betrayal and learns a harsh lesson in the cruellest warfare of all.
So, UK fans can finally breathe, and clear a space in their diaries from August 27th through to October 1st!
