BBC Release Three Spoiler Images!

BBC Release Three Spoiler Images!

The official Doctor Who site has released 3 images form The impossible Astronaut.

We’ve been given special permission to run three new images at one minute past midnight tonight – astonishing images that will have you wishing you could leap in a TARDIS and go straight to 6pm on Saturday evening.

Steven Moffat (Lead Writer and Executive Producer) has talked about big shocks and ‘game-changers’ in this series and our photos from The Impossible Astronaut show he wasn’t joking! Don’t worry if you’re not a night owl – the images and accompanying feature will be there in the morning. But if you don’t normally like big surprises too early in the day, we suggest you prepare yourself…

We are not one for giving spoilers but as they have been officially released here we go… You have been warned!

These stunning new images underline the fact that the Doctor’s return is absolutely unmissable. What’s going on? Find out when The Impossible Astronaut lands on BBC ONE on Saturday at 6pm. Immediately after the jaw-dropping cliff-hanger, switch over to CBBC to watch My Sarah Jane: A Tribute to Elisabeth Laden, a 15-minute special that celebrates and commemorates the life of one of Doctor Who’s most cherished actresses.

See the official site Here for more information and larger images.

    Sightings of the Silents or indications of their presence in Series 5:

    The Eleventh Hour – While hanging from the TARDIS, the Doctor looks up into into it and for a couple of seconds had a confused look on his face. Also, just how did Tennant’s Sonic get in that room? ALSO When Rory and Amy exit the elevator on the second floor of the hospital, rory glances behind him at something, but when he looks back towards Amy, he shakes his head like he forgot something. It is at about 42:49 . In the scene at the end of the episode where Amy goes into the TARDIS for the first time, there’s one point where she leans back on the console and is looking around the room. The camera is pointed towards her face, so we can’t see what she’s looking at. She looks around with a sort of awe-struck smile, but then her eyes linger over something and her expression turns into a look of horror. She starts breathing really quickly, and turns as if to get the Doctor’s attention, but as soon as she’s facing him she just asks, perfectly normally, “Why me?”, as if she’d completely forgotten about what she’d seen. Also, she flicks a TARDIS button/switch/lever at this point. Accidental Amy, or something meaningful?

    The Beast Below – at around 9:25, a black figure walks past Amy; she looks confused/scared for a couple of seconds, then shrugs it off.

    Victory of the Daleks – Near the end after the Daleks escape, the Doctor moves slowly backwards, as he gets near to the green framed window/doorway he looks to his left with a shock. The camera then switches to Amy and Churchill who both stare to the Doctor’s left with a look of shock before Amy continues on as normal with the line “Doctor, it’s OK you did it, you stopped the bomb.”

    The Lodger – At 21:47 for a couple of shots Amy looks in the distance or at the screen, and gasps, then she shouts for the Doctors attention, but he doesn’t listen. She looks away and shakes it off.

    Vampires of Venice – at the end when Rory, Amy and the Doctor are standing by the TARDIS, the TARDIS door is open and then shuts on its own.

    The Big Bang – there are cloaked figures behind the Sarcophogii in the museum; a third figure moves out of shot at the edge of the screen at about 13:31

    And (having watched the episode) I have proof that I shouldnt have taken the message “one of the regulars will die” so LITERALLY!! If it had to be permanent, rory would have ben my candidate, then again, I do find Alex Kingston rather a pansy of a performer. The way she say those lines, so annoying to watch. But that’s really a different topic. 😉

    It was to shock the viewers , give the man OH MY GOD moment in the season opender, something Steven Moffat says, you wouldnt normalyy expect from a Season-opener. (Usually they tend to be, rompy and light hearted. Just look at the Russel T davies series’s for confirmation of this, as Davros might say).

    Your post was far more insulting quite frankly it is not for you to judge people either. i also see the 2 comments that didn’t get through that you tried to post. we dont want people like you here. calling some one a freak is not justice just because they point something out to someone, its appalling
