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.

    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

    a. River is in Stormcage at the beginning of The Impossible Astronaut. This is a programme about time travel. Of course she can kill the Doctor
    b. She wouldn’t shoot herself if she knew it was her. If it was a future River, the current River might not know.

  • 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. 😉

  • McGann is the Doctor.

    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:
