‘Doctor Who’ Season 6 Finale Preview Images & Prequel Video

4 years ago by  

With the Doctor Who season 6 finale, entitled “The Wedding of River Song,” just days away, it’s time to look at what’s to come in the highly anticipated episode, as the Doctor faces his ultimate adventure – death.

Ever since the Doctor Who season 6 premiere, when the death of the Doctor was revealed, there’s been a flurry of questions about what led to this moment. With the majority of those questions being answered throughout the run of this season (though, most answered in last week’s episode), it’s now time to sit back and watch as the big question is asked, and the silence falls.

While much of the plot remains secret, what we do know is that time is stuck, and it has been for as long as anyone can remember. The date? April 22. The time? 5:02pm. All of history is now happening at once: Charles Dickens is on a morning chat show to talk about “A Christmas Carol”, cars are suspended by hot air balloons, dinosaurs are attacking school busses, and Winston Churchill is being hailed as Caesar.

The Doctor doesn’t know if he’s the one that caused this mess of time, or if there’s anything he can do to fix it – but he must try to stop it.  Elsewhere, the impossible astronaut is waiting, and the wedding of River Song must commence (unless the episode title is simply a metaphor).

And of course, “the question” must be asked. What that question will be, one can only guess. But, there will be somewhat of an answer to a question that fans have been wondering about: “the oldest question in the universe.” Whether these two questions are the same, we’ll have to wait and see.

If last week’s episode wasn’t enough to having you waiting in anticipation for Saturday’s finale, the prequel video to “The Wedding of River Song” surely will. You can view the prequel below:


With Stephen Moffat penning the episode, it’s sure to be an amazing adventure – no matter what happens. Since Matt Smith has already signed on for Doctor Who season 7, fans shouldn’t really be worried about the actual fate of the Doctor. But that doesn’t mean you’re not going to be on the edge of your seat.

In case you need a reminder of what’s to come, here’s a copy of the creepy rhyme that’s surrounding the events in this episode:

Tick tock, goes the clock, and what then shall we see?

Tick tock, until the day, that thou shalt marry me

Tick tock, goes the clock and all the years they fly

Tick tock, and all to soon you and I must die

Tick tock, goes the clock, we laughed at fate and mourned her

Tick tock, goes the clock, even for the Doctor

Tick tock, goes the clock, he cradled her and he rocked her

Tick tock, goes the clock and what now shall we play?

Tick tock, goes the clock now summer`s gone away

Tick tock, goes the clock all the years they fly

Tick tock, and all to soon your love surely die

Tick tock, goes the clock, he cradled her and he rocked her

Tick tock, goes the clock, till River kills the Doctor

Doctor, brave and good, he turned away from violence

When he understood, the falling of the silence

Doctor Who airs Saturday on the BBC and BBC America

    • It’s been the standard 13 episodes and Christmas special this year, they just split the season up into two parts so it seems shorter than usual.

    • Moffat switched up the way Doctor Who was aired so that he could work with cliffhangers in the middle of the season.

  1. What is going on with Matt Smith’s hair?! It looks like an old Doctor Who villain is living on his head! Might wanna check that with the sonic. Or some hair clippers.

  2. I’m so excited about this I can barely wait. I’m DYING!!! I’m really unsure where they are going to take this. Tick Tock goes the clock; he cradles her and he rocked her. Tick Tock goes the clock even for the Doctor. YESSSS!!!! Moar plz

  3. Doctor Who used to be good !
    Somehow it’s just going Downhill slowly !
    Found my self bored last episode and that something hardly happens !

    The stories this season were really not as good as they used to be,
    it’s more cold,not as personal as before,not much emotion here anymore !
    Hope one day the Doctor returns to form !

  4. I completely agree with ios. Dr. Who has gone down hill. Steven Moffatt seems to think that lots of mystery and many guns make for a clever episode: they don’t. I love Matt Smith’s doctor and The Doctor’s Wife by Neil Gaiman was fantastic…in fact all the writers have been great but they are let down by a poor show-runner in Steven Moffatt. I know he’s a huge Who fan but he seems to have forgotten that it is the small things that make Dr. Who great…not the big explosions.

  5. I agree with the above. I like much of Moffat’s work, but frankly when it comes to finales I just end up disappointed. The annoying thing is that I think I would have enjoyed this ending if I didn’t wait almost half a year for a twist that would have been considered a cheat in a kid’s show (and one I’d dismissed on those grounds). I fear it is becoming boring and I’m noticing a trend.

    In the last series, the Doctor was locked in an impossible prison which you’d expect would take something extremely clever and powerful to get out of it. As it was, they used basically the same trick as one of the Bill and Ted films (just get out of the situation then go back and set things up so you can get out of the situation). Even though all of his enemies were descending upon the Earth before he went into the Pandorica, setting up something huge, the antagonist in the next episode ended up being a single weakened Dalek.

    ‘A Good Man Goes to War’ was set up so we were expecting to see his darkest hour but it didn’t give us anything to compare to some of the moments we’ve already seen in the series (certainly not against ‘Journey’s End’). Now this series has all of time collapsing, with the whole universe coming to help him, and in the end rather than the Doctor doing anything impressive, he just accepts things and we end up seeing the old ‘it was actually a robot duplicate’ trick (how many of us, if we thought really hard, could say we’d never seen that before?).

    I fear Doctor Who is not living up to its own hype anymore. RTD may not have been known for his long term plot focus but ultimately I think the way he did focus on his long plots (just putting small clues into episodes and then having a nice reveal at the end of the series) was more satisfying.

    You see, I enjoy a show having a long and intriguing plotline but that’s not what this series is doing. The actual relation to the overall plot arc in most episodes has been minimal. It’s been build up more than anything else. A good show with a long plot arc is frequently being developed, with the characters’ actions being influenced by the plot arc. As it was, if you cut out all the talking about what was happening/would happen, you could have had all of the important events to do with this plot put into a single two part episode.

    By the way, I really don’t see how people take this show as too complex for kids. While it has a longer duration, your average episode of Hustle has far more twists and confusion than this most recent series did (I know that’s not for kids, but it’s also not noted as overly complicated either). This series merely takes a rather simple plot and stretches it out.

    Suspense is one thing, but when the ending that’s been set up is one you know can’t actually happen (the Doctor dying) then you end up with less suspense and just more curiosity about the loop hole they’ll exploit. When that loop hole’s not particularly clever or inspired, I’m not particularly happy (a lot of people suggested it would be a ganger of the Doctor and that was no less innovative). Of course it didn’t help that it was basically the same end that they used last series (the Doctor appears to die, we all know he can’t actually die, then he’s revealed to have lied about it).

    Anyway, I’m sorry for the rant. It’s just that after so many months, I felt cheated and had to get it off my chest.

    • FrustratedFan, thanks for your rant, you put that much more eloquently than I ever could have! I agree totally, it is just so disappointing after all this waiting…

  6. I liked it. it has still left a lot of questions unanswered. Who are the silence. Where did they come from. What does the Dr do now he is “dead”
