The Wedding of River Song Preview

It’s almost here, and as of Saturday evening you’ll know a whole lot more about The Wedding of River Song thanks to the stunning trailer at the end of Closing Time and the introduction clip on the BBC’s Doctor Who website.

Several months ago we saw the Doctor shot dead in Utah, at the hands of an Impossible Astronaut who rose from the depths to kill the Time Lord twice in succession, thus preventing regeneration…

As the Doctor makes his final journey to the shores of Lake Silencio in Utah, he knows only one thing can keep the universe safe – his own death – in the concluding episode of this series of the time-travelling drama. But has he reckoned without the love of a good woman?

The BBC has released a series of fascinating photos from the episode, but you’ll have to wait until next week for those…

So – the moment will soon be with us!

Doctor Who Series 6 comes to an end on Saturday, October 1st from 7.05 pm on BBC One and BBC One HD, and 9/8c on BBC America. Note that a 45 minute slot is listed, unlike previous finales where extra time has been allocated this one looks like it will be wrapped up pretty quickly…

    Squeeeeeeeeee! I like the 45 minute running time. Cuts out all the fat.

    @ Drew – Ah, but you just now there’ll be people complaining that it’s too rushed. We’re still hearing squawking over A Good Man Goes to War.
