Even More Doctor Who Series 6 Finale Details!

By Courtney Rowan

Contains SPOILERS

Doctor Who Magazine has released yet even more details and some spoilers about the Series 6 finale, The Wedding of River Song.  Not  gonna lie here…. I’m confused.  And I’m sure I’m supposed to be as there seems to be quite a bit of Timey-Wimey stuff going on.  TV Overmind has reported on the details in an article:

The episode is apparently set on April 22, 2011 at 5:02pm: “In Buckingham Senate, at 5.02pm, Holy Roman Emperor Winston Churchill calls for his Soothsayer to be fetched from the Tower. Greying, unkempt, older, tireder, but unmistakably – it’s the Doctor. ‘Tick tock goes the clock,’ Winston tells him, ‘but they don’t, do they? The clocks never tick.’ It’s always 5.02pm these days. All of history is happening at once. ‘What happened to time?’ asks Winston. The answer, it seems, is a woman…”

Dorium, the big blue man who sold River a vortex manipulator back in series 5, will also be back in the finale, it seems, despite his death at the hands of the Headless Monks in the midseries finale, “A Good Man Goes to War.”

“On the fields of Trenzalore, at the fall of the Eleventh, when no living creature may speak falsely or fail to give answer, a question will be asked,” Dorium tells the Doctor. “A question that must never, ever be answered. . . ‘Silence must fall’ would be a better translation. The Silence are determined that the question must never be answered. The Doctor must never reach Trenzalore.”

Doctor Who TV has also released some new  info from Doctor Who Magazine, including an official synopsis:

The city of London, 22 April 2011 – soaring buildings, glittering and mighty under a perfect blue sky, and life tumbling onto pavements below. And horse-drawn Roman chariots driving through the streets. And a Victorian steam train on a monorail… hang on, like in a sci-fi city, but with Romans and steam trains? And hot air balloons? And pterodactyls? And Charles Dickens appearing on BBC One’s Breakfast! Something isn’t quite right…

In Buckingham Senate, at 5.02pm, Holy Roman Emperor Winston Churchill calls for his Soothsayer to be fetched from the Tower. Greying, unkempt, older, tireder, but unmistakably – it’s the Doctor. “Tick tock goes the clock,” Winston tells him, “but they don’t, do they? The clocks never tick.” It’s always 5.02pm these days. All of history is happening at once. “What happened to time?” asks Winston. The answer, it seems, is a woman…

Check out the full article to read the whole conversation between Dorum and The Doctor also.   They’ve also highlighted some other stuff, a few of which are:

  • There is a wedding ceremony, of sorts
  • There is an exciting battle sequence near the end
  • Another big River revelation
  • And River gets a big revelation about the Doctor
And other stuff – so go read it!!

My brain can’t handle all these spoilers and teasers!!  Are you as excited for this finale?  In the meantime, get your fix this Saturday during Closing Time at 9:00 PM on BBC America where it seems the return of an old foe appears (not to mention the brilliant James Corden).  Here’s the trailer:
