Doctor Who – A Good Man Goes To War

Doctor Who – A Good Man Goes To War
Saturday 4 June BBC1

Amy Pond has been kidnapped and the Doctor is raising an army to rescue her as the drama continues. But as he and Rory race across galaxies, calling in long-held debts and solemnly given promises, his enemies are laying a carefully concealed trap.

In her cell in Stormcage, River Song sadly acknowledges that the time has come at last – today will mark the Battle of Demons Run and the Doctor’s darkest hour. Both sides will make their sacrifices and River Song must finally reveal her most closely guarded secret to the Doctor.

Amy is played by Karen Gillan, the Doctor by Matt Smith, Rory by Arthur Darvill and River Song by Alex Kingston.

    In the sun it says the daleks have left dr who for ever but i reckon not

    • McGann is the Doctor.

      Ofcourse they havent left Dr Who, that’s publicity-desperate slurr.But for now, let’s just leave them be.

      The Daleks are an unique enemy of the Doctor’s, the relationship between the two is like no other. It has to happen that, as long as the Doctor’s in business, the Dalek foe will menace him again, and again. For now though, it is best to just leave them be. 😉

      the daleks have not left doctor who. the daleks won’t be in doctor who for a while because steven moffat said that the doctor has defeated the dalek so many times that the on going would get boring and that the daleks would “need a rest” from the show

    • DoctorWho2011

      June 1st, 2011 - 4:15pm

      I Think I Did Heard Hes Going To Be In The 50th Anniversary

    • McGann is the Doctor.

      June 1st, 2011 - 9:40pm

      If there’s anyone that should be returning as the Doctor for a Special 2013 anniversary special it should be that dear wonderful extravagansa of a man, Paul McGann. 🙂

      He IS the Doctor, and he’s also got a bit of a new look for the Eighth Doctor, that could have been from the Time War.

      I know the Series has got it’s hands so full with the alien-eccentric Matt Smith – Doctor but a multi Doctor story would be a good idea. It would be fun.:grin:

    • DoctorWho4Eva

      i think a multi Doctor story should be: David and Matt. My 2 fave doctors of all time. 😀

    • The Doctor

      June 4th, 2011 - 4:33pm

      I don’t think there is a good Sontaran.

  • The Good man who went to war

    Jimmy Vee will be in this episode.

    Does genuinely look like she’s going to be Amy’s kid in some way.
    River is in prison for killing someone who she described as ‘the best man I ever knew’, and we know whatever is in the spacesuit kills the doctor in the future. Her past = his future.
    We know there was a child in the spacesuit at one point, and that even though she escaped the space suit is still programmed to go after her, so maybe catches up in future?
    Fact the kid regenerated would explain why River knows so much about Time Lords and the Tardis.
    And in the first episode Amy saw various pictures of the child at various ages, one of which featuring her lying next to her as a baby.
    Of course, no hints whatsoever that Amy was not actually Amy until it happened. So perhaps this is all a deliberate red herring.

      here’s something u might want to read about episode 11

      The Doctor and Amy are trapped in a hotel and the geography keeps shifting

    I’ve heard that the Cybermen, Silurians and Sontarans are all helping the doctor!!!!!!!

    • The face of Boe

      May 30th, 2011 - 2:32pm

      helping? why would they help the doctor I think they are on the women with the eye patch side

    • The Good man who went to war

      May 31st, 2011 - 6:00pm

      That is very possible and accurately true because its been confirmed that The Sontaran
      is good and helping Rory and the Doctor so I
      wouldnt say that the cybermen and silurians are on Madame Kovarian’s side. Also there are two girl’s and one is a silurian look as if they are good.

    • The Teacher

      June 1st, 2011 - 4:09pm

      The silurians and the cybermen are the doctor side. the other girl is jenny the doctor’s daughter i think and the cybermen are rebels or somthing similer. Anyway we will find out in 3 Days.

    • The Doctor

      June 4th, 2011 - 10:07am

    No… the cliffhanger at the END of ep7 tells us who river song is

    • The Good man who went to war

      May 31st, 2011 - 6:02pm

      Well I have heard that there will be a few cliffhangers for the episode including River Song’s Identity to make the episode very exciting and epic.
