Doctor Who Series 6 Episode One Prequel

Doctor Who Series 6 Prequel

The Prequel to Episode 1

From the official BBC website…

The new series of Doctor Who begins at Easter with The Impossible Astronaut. But before that we have a short scene written by Steven Moffat that reveals a little of what we can expect from the adventure … and what the Doctor will be facing!

    The night came, cold and spooky. There the Whitehouse stood in all honour and beauty. As the American flag moves in the wind. Cut to inside the Whitehouse as a man runs down a corridor. And then RING RING the noise of the phone awakes. As a hand picks the phone up and brings it up to his ear and begins to speak-

    President: (on phone) “Hello…Hello this is the president of the united states, who is this?… is it you again

    He looks to his left and looks with scared eyes at something. A spooky girl’s voice begins to speak

    Voice of girl: “Look behind you!”

    Behind him a man with big eyes, looking possessed at the president.

    As a tape recorder moves around. The disc speaks the girls voice

    President: “How did you get this number? this is my private line. who told you the number!”

    Voice of girl: “every day and night we see them. You have to look behind you”

    Back behind the president is the man still standing there

    President: “who told you this number?”
    Voice of girl: “The spaceman did!”
    President: “What spaceman!”
    Voice of girl: “It doesn’t matter. Just look behind you! I’m telling you about the monsters”
    President: “there aren’t any monsters in the oval office!”

    The phone line ends. The president lies back . And then the silent stands by him

    i dont think the astronaut is the doctor, i think that it is some kind of entity.
    i think the ‘girl’ on the phone was the astranaut using the childs voice. i think he is the good guy and is trying to warn people about the aliens using a childs voice, hoping the president may be sympathetic and listen.

    that might not be the preseident
    well it is
    that suit boy would be a extra exiting kickstart to series 6
    but how is that going to tie up with The Doctor sitting in that chair wanting fezzes and jammy dodgers
    well, maybe this suit boy alien henchman scary smile guy murders the president.
    and notice in the first bit of the prequel, there is a guy running while he is picking up the phone, well, maybe he has heard that message before.
    and this is a prequel not a opening scene, this is to lead onto the episode, not to be in it
    and maybe (i’m just blabbering on now :))this child is child river song, mybe the austronaught is the doctor, and maybe she can call the president saying all the spooky blabbery stuff about suit guy
    just a thought.

    O EMZ G, that is freaky, looks like the trickster, bu it can’t be.

      March 27th, 2011 - 8:57pm

      Nah, I dont think Stephen Moffet would use a character from SJA, he likes to create his own monsters, Vashta Narada, Prisoner Zero, Atraxi, Silence, Clockwork Robots, Empty Child

    the man behind the president either transformed into the alien or the president allready knew he was there and its some sort of governmnet plot to do with area 51. thats my theory.

    Hey Jason.

    I don’t think it’ll be in the opening episodes, it’s supposed to be a Prequel. It would suit the episode, but I think the opening scenes will be more unusual, unexpected, unpredictable and exciting. Something featuring River, the Doctor, Amy, Rory, little bit of America…ect

    Reply to Doctor Who 4 Eva –

    these are not the dolls like evryone said, this is actually (what is said to be)- “The Silence” wonder how they got the name.

    Because they appear to be silent.

    Is the white head a mask the monster has or his actual flesh? Has the bodyguard transformed? Is that a evil smile upon the creature’s face I see?
