Doctor Who series 6 air date

Issue #432 of the Doctor Who magazine contains some real gems of information regarding series 6 of the popular sci-fi, including the air date of the first half of the series!
Series 6 of Doctor Who will be broadcast on the 23rd of April in the UK on BBC1 and BBC HD. Due to the incredible reaction to series 5 from fans, and their previous disappointment at being 3 weeks behind, BBC America will also be showing the episodes on the same day as they are broadcast in the UK only hours later (simply due to the time difference.)

The opening episode of series six will be the first of a two-part adventure which is unusual as it strays from the pattern set by the previous five series of Doctor Who, what’s also unusual is the fact that the second episode of the the series is set to air only one day later on the 24th of April meaning that fans get to avoid the agonizing wait which comes at the halfway point of a two-parter. The first episodes of the series will be written by Doctor Who head writer, Steven Moffat, other writers to contribute to the series include Tom MacRae – the writer behind the series two stories, “Rise of the Cybermen” and “The Age of Steel“, and Toby Whithouse – the creator of the BBC supernatural drama series, Being Human, who will be penning episode 11 of the series titled, “The God Complex”.

An official synopsis for the opening episodes reads, “The Doctor and his companions Amy and Rory find themselves on a secret summons that takes them on an adventure from the desert in Utah – right to the Oval Office in 1969.

The series overall is said to have a much darker tone than Matt Smiths previous outing and will see the season split in two halves with seven episodes shown from the April date and then the remaining episodes shown later in the year (Possibly September).
