Doctor Who - Series 6 Official Trailer - Spoilers

River Song: This is the Doctor's darkest hour. He'll rise higher than ever before and then fall so much further. This is the day he finds out who I am.

Come on, was anyone honestly not expecting at least one Doctor/River kiss this season? If the costume is anything to go by, this could be from opening two parter, The Impossible Astronaut/Day Of The Moon or possibly the game changing seventh episode, which will either be titled His Darkest Hour or A Good Man Goes To War, according to DWM. It's certainly a smoocher, especially in light of a certain episode title that was revealed this week. The Doctor's looking a little possessed in this one, though whether it's from the Silence, who are the main threat for Series 6 or something else, I can't really tell. This episode briefly had a shot of the Doctor and Idris (Suranne Jones) on a planet looking at a ship. The episode featuring Idris was revealed to be titled, The Doctor's Wife and whether or not Idris will literally live up to the title is another thing. Some are speculating that she won't or that she's a literal manifestation of the TARDIS, which I think is also more likely.
Amy and Rory in the TARDIS and it seems that these two will be put through the ringer this season as well. Expect Rory to make one hell of an error and Amy might be containing a secret or two from the Doctor. We have no confirmation of whether or not both characters will make it past this upcoming series either whereas Matt Smith has been confirmed for the 2012 series.

It looks like we're seeing the TARDIS from the RTD era of the series, though I have no idea as to why but it looks cool again, right? There's rumours that we might be seeing a regeneration this season. Also, there's an incredibly interesting conversation between the Doctor and an unseen menace about killing Time Lords. The Doctor naturally wins that one of course.

Also the Doctor once again mentioned that he was running and has to stop but from what, exactly? The trailer is rather cryptic on that end of things and I have no idea what is up with the suits in the above picture either. Anyone else notice that there's no familiar race of aliens in this trailer too? Literally all of them are new.

Keeping with episode titles, Toby Whithouse's one has been called The God Complex and it's the one set in a hotel with nightmare scenerios (clowns, strange bull like creature) and the other highlights included some clips of the pirate episode as well as those creepy dolls and some dubious scenes with Amy as well. April 23rd can't come fast enough.
