Doctor Who - Series 6 Press Launch/DWM 433 Cover Spoilers

If you couldn't tell that Series 6 of Doctor Who was coming, well you certainly should be able to now as DWM decide to celebrate the arrival of the new series in style, as well as an ominous threat as well to the system ...

The issue - 433, which comes out on Thursday has four covers - The Doctor, Amy Pond, Rory Pond and River Song and personally for me, I'll just grab the first one available because honestly, they all look superb. And then there's that spoiler on the cover - one of them will die? But is that really true and if so, will it be a death that actually sticks?

The Doctor: Sure, they could kill him off but given that Matt Smith has not only been heavily rumoured to continue the role in 2012 but has also talked about his own ideas for the 50th anniversary in 2013, I can't see the Doctor actually dying and staying that way, even if River has been cryptically going on about killing the best man she's ever known. More importantly if being erased from the universe and then literally wished back into existence from Amy can't keep him down, what chance does death have of doing it?
Amy Pond: Oh, Amy, you poor thing. You've already seen Rory die twice on you and you er, died as well yourself but could death be a pernament thing for you this year? Maybe not, especially given that we've seen filming pics of Amy well beyond The Impossible Astronaut/Day Of The Moon. And besides, if the trailers from last week are anything to go by, Amy could be the one causing death rather than becoming one of it's victims.

Rory Pond (ne Williams): Rory is not only supposed to be the companion that audiences see as an identification figure but he's also become the poor guy who gets killed twice a season. Could a third one actually stick? Let's hope not, eh? Personally, I want to see him and Amy leave the series happy and married rather than one or both of them dead.

River Song: International woman of mystery, a mystery that this year is supposed to finally resolve but could she also die here? Moffat's repeatedly said that her fate from Series 4 was inevitable but given his love of timey-wimey, whose to say that River doesn't experience death in the opener? Whoever does die however, I can guarantee that it's not going to be a death that sticks for any of them but it's certainly enough to amp up excitement for the series. Similiarly exciting are the reports from the press screening of the first two episodes linked below as well as detailed synopsises from the BBC website released. Only 19 days to go now before everything changes.

Great stuff, isn't it? Not to be nitpicky, but for a male, the term is né, not née.
