Doctor Who Episode 13 Title Revealed

Doctor Who Episode 13 Title Revealed

The new radio times has revealed the title of episode 13, its a bit spoilery so we’ve hidden the details below…

The Wedding of River Song

Writer Steven Moffat Director Jeremy Webb Guest stars Frances Barber, Simon Callow, Simon Fisher-Becker, Mark Gatiss, Ian McNeice “I don’t want to marry you.” “I don’t want to murder you.”

And here it is at last – the episode with all the answers, as the Doctor journeys to Lake Silencio for his date with destiny. While I was writing this, my wife asked me, “What happens?” and when I frowned, and pondered my answer, she hurriedly added, “In one sentence. Quite a short one.” I thought a moment and said, “The Doctor goes to his certain death – and it doesn’t work out as well he expected.”

      No, we haven’t heard it because it’s part of the mystery of the show. There is actually one and those in charge of the show are aware of it but it is kept extremelly secret (although it’s more likely Steven Moffat made it up).

    Are we going to get a resolution to the cracks in time/who blew up the tardis storyline that started at the begining of the LAST season or is he going to drag it on yet again?
    No one seams to be talking about this.
    Is it omega?

      I always assumed it was the Silence. It might not be then.

    I hope this is not the last time we see River Song and it would be nice for River to become a proper companion

    dont know who heard theses but here you go

    The Girl Who Waited
    The Doctor has been in Amy and Rory’s life for a long while now – far longer than he ever intended. When they step from the TARDIS into a strange white waiting room, they’re all about to learn just how wrong time travel can go: Amy ends up in quarantine on a disease-ridden planet, and ages rapidly…

    The God Complex
    The Doctor and his friends find themselves in a hotel that is a living creature feeding off the fears of a genetically-engineered population. Searching the halls and rooms, they encounter a sinister clown, a Minotaur and the Weeping Angels…

    Closeing Time
    Events have moved on in the life of Craig Owens when the Doctor turns up on his doorstep for a second time; there’s a terrible alien threat from a long-standing enemy, the Cybermen – but worse than that, there’s a baby!

    The Wedding Of River Song
    The Doctor, Amy and Rory arrive on a bizarre alien world full of children and prehistoric birds. As River Song returns for the biggest event in her life, the answers to everything may lie in a mysterious pyramid…

    i think it would all be better if russel t davies stayed in the position because i thought river song could of been somthing better than the daughter of amy.
    i think lets kill hitler will be a good episode

    Sounds like steve is planning a really exciting Xmas adventure for us

    After boasting that last year’s “A Christmas Carol,” was “the most Christmassy Christmas special ever,” Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat is claiming that this year’s Christmas special is going to be “Christmassy as hell.” Without revealing too much, Moffat hinted at what’s to come in the special, which he’d previously hinted as having “fire and aliens.”

    “I might be cleverly redeploying a known Christmas story again, sort of… but probably not the one you think,” Moffat told SFX. “It will be massively Christmassy and moving and sentimental and sweet. It’ll be set partly on Earth, but not completely. And it might have a period setting…”

    It sounds a lot like “A Christmas Carol,” but I’d be fine with that. That episode, in my opinion, was far and ahead the best Christmas special to air since the show came back in 2005. I don’t know what story Moffat is planning on adapting this time, but I’d love to see a Doctor Who take on How the Grinch Stole Christmas or something zany like that. Imagine the Doctor fighting off a big green monster who attacks at Christmas! It sounds great.


      August 23rd, 2011 - 9:22pm

      I don’t want them to be do xmas-sy they get carried away and forget about good storyline and think about a ‘traditional’ family watching the tv on xmas part one of the end of time showed how it’s done last year aimed too much at pleasing non-who fans some of them liked it but doctor who is going to mainstream I don’t mean make it like torchwood just a bit more violent and not scary monsters for the sake of it (I did like the since though)and the doctor darker side in a good man goes to war was good it got to show Matt s acting because the doctor has been a bit 1 dimensional at times (no fault of matt smiths may I add)Also river song has been in a bit too much.But moffet can write great eps just look at a blink that was one of the best eps ever I think more writers need to get involved so we can have diffent type of eps I personaly loved the ep the lodger just saying.

    The Doctor already knew who River Song is because River Song whispered his name into his ear, and he said only one person could know that, and then he didn’t know Amy, so I think that she is someone else aswell, I think that she is his wife aswell!

      No it is not, that is part of the current series it was filmed and made alongside it and commisioned by the BBC along with it as well and is part of Series 11.2 as a result.

    Really makes you want to watch this!

  • Mcgann is the Doctor.

    August 23rd, 2011 - 1:26pm

    Great news, beacause Steven Moffat originally said it was to have a (rather lame) title “The Wedding”. 😆 I was worried for a bit !

  • ian

    August 23rd, 2011 - 12:12pm

    The Wedding Of River Song merely the culmination of a story that began back in “The Silence In The Library”. It was implied back then that she was in a relationship with the Doctor I suspect that we will discover the true nature of that relationship in this episode. How it all fits in with Emperor Churchill,Eye-patch wearing Vikings, Area 52 pyramids and dinosaurs is anyone’s guess. I don’t know about anyone else but I’m rather looking forward to finding out.

    OMG amazing title but what does that have to do with the doctors death

    • Mcgann is the Doctor.

      August 23rd, 2011 - 1:24pm

      Until the episode is broacast, it’s anyones guess!

  • HenezWho

    August 23rd, 2011 - 10:16am

    the wedding of river song, i think she is going to be in the astronaught suit and that is why she got put in jail for killing the doctor and my theory is the people with eyepatches can remeber the silence…

    • roo slitheen

      August 24th, 2011 - 9:35am

      im thinking the same.

    • Adam

      August 25th, 2011 - 8:31am

      Same my sister said it at first then I agreed and of course she said she killed a Good Man but the Doctor isn’t going to die

    • tardistik

      August 25th, 2011 - 11:47am

      a big clue of that is matt smith is signed until 2013

    • tardistik

      August 25th, 2011 - 11:48am

      i’ve just thought of something – could the doctor that gets killed be a ganger as there seems to be quite a heavy involvement of them even in the episodes they weren’t in

      September 3rd, 2011 - 5:37pm

      in lets kill hilter river is shot by the soldiers while in regeneration and say you can’t be killed during that time, but in the impossible astranourt when the docter iss killed in the same way she tells amy that being shot during regeneration kill a time lord I think her an the doctor have faked his death to draw out the silence

  • doctorwhoreturns27t 2011

    i thanks to the person who commetd the episode
    tilte and it also thanls to booboo not me but i knew too.

    how unimaginative of mr moffat

    • matt smithy

      August 23rd, 2011 - 9:25am

      i think it is. its very simple but gets you intrested. also, i think the doctor says “i don’t want to ….. you” and river says “i don’t want to …… you” indecating she is the astronaut

    • Bigger on the Inside

      August 23rd, 2011 - 9:37am

      Yeah, because it’s like a set time in history that can’t be avoided for River ….. the Doctor. So is the Doctor ….. River so it can’t be changed.( I think )

    • king gerbil

      August 23rd, 2011 - 11:41am

      “How unimaginative of Mr.Moffat”
      Remind me again what the Christmas episode title was, and then tell me that this is unimaginative.

    • 2doctors2000

      August 23rd, 2011 - 4:34pm

      But there is something else, she tried to shoot herself if it ws the astronaut, and why wud she kill him?
