The second half of Doctor Who‘s sixth season is so close you almost taste it, sniff it, hear it. Well, you can kind of hear it, in this new clip from the Beeb. Doctor Who returns with “Let’s Kill Hitler” on August 27th, but until then you can watch this prequel clip,
Sad, isn’t it? Amy doesn’t sound like she’s lost hope, which is good, but why she and Rory aren’t with the Doctor as he searches for their daughter raises some questions. And will they find little Melody Pond? Will we learn any more from River as to Melody’s upbrining, since, y’know, they’re the same person!? Anyone else still confused on how they’re the same person? Oh, Steven Moffat, you mad genius!
In “Let’s Kill Hitler,” the TARDIS crash-lands in 1930s Berlin, bringing the Doctor face to face with one of the greatest war criminals in the universe, including none other than Hitler. Time travel has responsibilities, and the Doctor teaches his companions a harsh lesson during one the cruelest wars of all time. The episode will screen first at BFI, on Friday, Aug. 26, at the MediaGuardian Edinburgh International Television Festival, and will debut Saturday, Aug. 27, on BBC America.
