For those keeping score at home, we now have a mere 17 days until the simultaneous U.S. / UK premiere on Saturday, 23 April. Seems like yesterday, it was only 18 days. From what I’ve seen, there’s never been a truer statement than the promise that you haven’t seen anything yet. Series 6 takes Steven Moffat genius to a new level.

Doctor Who series 6 review leaves me having more Q’s, needing more
A’s – I can’t wait
Ian Wylie, former London TV editor of the Manchester Evening News, is now a London-based freelance journalist covering television for not only the Manchester News, but also the Guardian and The Sun, among others. Wylie recently attended the press launch for the eagerly-awaited premiere two-parter of “The Impossible Astronaut” and “Day of the Moon“. After screening, Wylie promptly writes that “…episodes one and two provide the darkest – and scariest – opening ever to a Doctor Who series.” For a transcript of Ian’s brilliant review and Q&A session, click here. FYI, there are a number of minor spoilers throughout the recap of the evening as it unfolded so, read on at your own risk.
Seems like the entire series 6 can be summed up with Steven Moffat’s answer to the question as to whether or not he had fun writing….
“Oh, how could you not have fun writing that. Of course. It’s all my favourite things. It’s the Doctor and monsters and the Tardis and River Song and nonsense. Yes, I love it.”
