New Poster for Series 6 Part 2 Raises Questions...



The above poster is from Entertainment Weekly in the US. Obviously, the tagline is the first intriguing thing - "Past, Present & Future will collide". A disruption of the timelines? Is Rory's habit of dying something to do with it? The new trailer clearly shows Churchill...and dinosaurs - does the Doctor do something cataclysmic to mess it up so to speak? Or does it run deeper?

The next intriguing thing about the poster is that River seems to be separated from the Doctor, Rory and Amy by lightning. The Silence is hovering behind so lightning would be an obvious conclusion. What if it ISN'T lightning though? Could it be a crack in time? Did the "reboot" of the Universe at the end of Season 5 really work or, for instance, did it create two (or more) opposing timelines that are trying to converge?

There are so many questions to be answered: River may be Melody Pond but what kind of "weapon" is she supposed to be? What is Amy's secret (that Karen Gillan keeps mentioning)? Why does Rory keep dying? Is the Doctor going to get darker? Can all these be answered in a mere 6 episodes?

We'll soon find out - but the one thing I'm looking forward to above all else...is checking out the Doctor in his smart and funky new coat...
