The Wedding Of River Song Spoilers

The Wedding Of River Song

With the latest issue of Doctor Who Magazine comes a wealth of new spoilers and tidbits of what to expect for the future, with some interesting things to look forward to with the upcoming Series 6 Finale.

Over on the forum, PopRockGeek and Twisted-Sister have been busy putting some of the best bits together, and here is a little of what you can expect.

First up we have the synopsis of the episode as well as a little dialogue (both of which can be found in the latest DWM, released today)

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…
DORIUM: “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. A question that must never, ever be answered.”
THE DOCTOR: ‘”Silence will fall when the question is asked…’”
DORIUM: ‘”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.
THE DOCTOR: “I don’t understand? What’s it got to do with me?”
DORIUM: “The first question. The oldest question in the universe, hidden in plain sight. Would you like to know what it is?”
DORIUM: “…Are you sure?”
Simon Callow will be returning to the series after 6 years as Charles Dickens. Most of you will remember him from the Ninth Doctor story The Unquiet Dead. Mark Gatiss will be playing a viking (confirmed by BlogtorWho), Ian Mcneice will return as Churchill after his stint in 2010s Victory Of The Daleks and Alex Kingston and Frances Barber will return as River Song and Kovarian respectively.

The episode will air on Saturday October 1st on BBC 1. For more spoilers make sure you check out this months Doctor Who Magazine and of course The Doctor In The TARDIS Forum.


  1. "Mark Gatiss will be playing a viking"
    Can't he just go away?

  2. LOL at what TDF said... that's EXACTLY what I think whenever I see his name attached to Who. He's done some great work with his Agatha Christie and Sherlock stuff, and League of Gentlemen was occasionally hilarious, but almost everything he's done in connection with Who has just made me want to strangle him.

  3. fuck sake! what is it with gatiss?!?!
    hasnt he got anything better to do?
