The Doctor returns, alongside newlyweds Amy and Rory, to face monsters and mysteries and adventures all across time and space. Together they find themselves in Sixties America, battling the invasion the world forgot, then journey on the high seas of 1696 aboard a pirate ship, to solve the mystery of the Siren. In a bubble universe at the very edge of reality, the Doctor meets an old friend with a new face, and in a monastery on a remote island in the near future, an industrial accident takes on a terrible human shape. And waiting for them, at the end of all this, is the battle of Demon’s Run, and the Doctor’s darkest hour. Can even the truth about River Song save the Time Lord’s soul? Only two things are certain. Silence will fall. And a good man is going to die…

 

Doctor Who: Series 6, Part 1, a two-disc DVD and Blu-ray set, contains the first seven episodes along with two Monster files, “The Gangers” and “The Silence,” two of the Doctor’s most challenging opponents.

In the season opener, “The Impossible Astronaut,” four envelopes are received, numbered 2, 3 and 4, each containing a date, time and map reference, unsigned, but in TARDIS blue. Who sent them? And who received the missing number one? This strange summons reunites the Doctor (Smith), Amy (Gillan), Rory (Darvill) and River Song (Kingston) in the middle of the Utah desert and unveils a terrible secret the Doctor’s friends must never reveal to him. ‘Space 1969’ is their only clue, as their quest lands them – quite literally – in the Oval Office, where they are enlisted by President Nixon himself to assist enigmatic former-FBI agent Canton (Mark Sheppard) in saving a terrified little girl from a mysterious spaceman.

BBC Video has announced the 2-disc, July 19th Blu-ray release of Doctor Who: Series Six, Part One, the next stop on the immortal Time Lord’s journey through time, space and reality. In the first of two planned Series Six releases, Matt Smith and Karen Gillan travel to the 1960s, battle an alien invasion, hop aboard a pirate ship in the 17th century, explore a bubble universe at the edge of reality, and encounter strange creatures and familiar foes at every turn.

Series Six, Part One includes seven episodes:

  • The Impossible Astronaut
  • Day of the Moon
  • The Curse of the Black Spot
  • The Doctor’s Wife
  • The Rebel Flesh
  • The Almost People
  • A Good Man Goes to War
