Doctor Who Season 6 Info And Premiere Date - April 23rd!

Good news for Doctor Who fans both here and in the US... The season 6 premiere will air both on the UK BBC and American BBC on April the 23rd 2011 (Easter weekend)...

A new poster/banner has been released snazzy with the tag line, "Trust your Doctor". This season is supposed to be a lot darker and adult in tone to the last season with some Earth-shattering (and Tardis shattering) events taking place.

Here's the premiere discription: “The Doctor (Matt Smith), and his companions Amy (Karen Gillan) and Rory (Arthur Darvill), find themselves on a secret summons that takes them on an adventure from the desert in Utah — right to the Oval Office in 1969.”

The show filmed with the cast for the first ever time in the United States late last year for these episodes. Part One of the two-part opener written by showrunner Steven Moffat and this season will feature stars Mark Sheppard (Battlestar Galactica) and good old River Song (Alex Kingston) according to Entertainment Weekly.

Here's a fan-filmed video below of the Doctor (with his new green looking jacket) supposedly working at House of Fraser with his very own name badge, holding a Cyberman "Cybermat" infiltration device and talking with James Corden (notice baby) who returns as Craig Owens... This is from a later season 6 episode which has a Cyberman story arc which is said to span 3 episodes and could feature the Doc getting kidnapped!
