The season finale of what might be the best season of Doctor Who yet, at the very least the most shocking, comes to a close October 1st with the epsiode, “The Wedding of River Song.” I’m sure we could discuss for hours what that ominous title means. I’m guessing it’ll have little to do with two people being joined in matrimony, but will all of River’s secrets be revealed? Part of me wants to know it all, so I can finally wrap my head around her whole confusing, timey-wimey continuity, but then again, a part of me wants River always shrouded in mystery and warning us not to peak at spoilers.
What I can confirm is eyepatches must be very in style, and the Doctor has been neglecting his hair dresser. Check out the gallery below and share any theories you might have about what this finale is all about.

Three still shots have been made available via Entertainment Weekly featuring Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins and Sir Ian McKellen as Gandalf the Grey. Okay, everyone, calm down. I can hear you all freakin’ out from here. Oh wait, that’s just me. OMG! SQUEE! The Hobbit is really, really, really happening. Somehow, seeing them in costume and make-up on set makes it all feel real.
Over at EW is also a video where you can see director Peter Jackson, umm, directing Freeman. Doesn’t everything look just how you imagined it would? You know, exactly like the Lord of the Rings Trilogy. It’s like we never even left Middle Earth. Jackson had this to say about Freeman as Bilbo,
He fits the ears, and he’s got some very nice feet. I think he’s got the biggest hobbit feet we’ve had so far. They’re a little bit hard to walk in, but he’s managed to figure out the perfect hobbit gait.
And about McKellen as Gandalf,
He’s in fantastic form. In a way, his role in The Hobbit has more technical difficulties than Lord of the Rings did, because he has scenes with 14 smaller characters — obviously the dwarves and the hobbit are shorter… I remember saying to him [laughs], “Look, this isn’t Waiting for Godot or King Lear. This is The Hobbit. This is the real thing.”
