A breif synopsis of the Doctor Who mid-season cliffhanger, A Good Man goes to War, has been released. It was so great I'd thought I'd post it.

Rory (in his Roman costume, Arthur Darvill-fans) faces the Cyberlord and his Cybermen

Amy Pond has been kidnapped and the Doctor is raising an army to rescue her as the drama continues. But as he and Rory race across galaxies, calling in long-held debts and solemnly given promises, his enemies are laying a carefully concealed trap.

In her cell in Stormcage, River Song sadly acknowledges that the time has come at last – today will mark the Battle of Demons Run and the Doctor's darkest hour. Both sides will make their sacrifices and River Song must finally reveal her most closely guarded secret to the Doctor.


Exciting stuff, eh? Only 3 weeks to go - but then that means no Who for 3 months. Sob, we can't win.

Who's the best!

As the new Doctor Who series is well underway I think it's time to celebrate that with the top 5 moments of Doctor Who Series Six so far...

 5. The Eleventh Doctor in the 'Coral' TARDIS.
                The Doctor's Wife

This scene deserves its place for pleasing the fanboy/girl in everyone (well, me anyway). It's Eleven! In Nine and Ten's TARDIS! Did I wish really hard?

4. Amy swashes her buckle!
      The Curse of the Black Spot

Amy Pond to the rescue! When the Doctor and Rory are being made to walk the plank by Captain Avery and his blagard crew, Amy dons a pirate hat, coat and cutlass and saves them from certain death! Go Pond!

3.The Glowing Girl
        Day of the Moon

For sheer shock value, this scene must make my top five. The mysterious little girl who the Silence had hidden away in a Apollo 11 spacesuit (for reasons best known to the themselves) staggers into a New York alleyway. She's dying but, apparently, it's alright. She can fix it...(cue volcanic whoosh)

2. I'm Sexy!
      The Doctor's Wife

She's the TARDIS. And she's a woman! The Doctor and his constant companion through time and space finally get to talk - and they argue!
While building a TARDIS out of junk parts to rescue Amy and Rory from House, the Doctor accuses the TARDIS of never being very reliable. The cheek!

1. Death of the Doctor!
         The Impossible Astronaut

Amy, Rory and River all receive a summons to Utah in the good ol' US of A in 2011. There they meet the Doctor - in a Stetson - and have a picnic alongside the beautiful Lake Silencio. However, this picturesque scene is interrupted when an astronaut emerges from the lake. The Doctor, seemingly expecting such a confrontation, warns his friends not to interfere as he walks over to the figure.
Suddenly, the astronaut raises a hand and several bolts
 of green light blast the Doctor. Teary-eyed, he starts to regenerate but another blast of light stops the process and he falls to the ground. A dead man.

A phenomally shocking scene of the highest WTF variety, this forces the viewer to sit up and pay attention only 10 minutes into the new series. Perhaps, Doctor Who will never be safe again.

Tune into the next episode of Doctor Who tomorrow on BBC1 at 6.45, entitled The Rebel Flesh.
