Series 6, Part 2 - launch date


Although speculation isn't what Blogtor Who is about, it would seem that the launch date for Doctor Who Series 6, Part 2 has been narrowed down considerably. Online retailers DVD.co.uk have stated its release will be Oct 10. This would mean that the latest start would be Sep 3.

Two screenings of the first episode, Let's Kill Hitler, are taking place in the UK on Aug 15 and 26 - suggesting that Aug 27 as the more probable. Blogtor Who will be at both events, with a full report from each.

Later today a new trailer for the series will be released, perhaps with an official date. Episodes in the second half of the series include: Let's Kill Hitler, Night Terrors and The God Complex. Check out some footage from the finale, Episode 13, HERE. Be warned - contains SPOILERS!

ETA:
The Doctor Who panel at Comic Con 2011 has confirmed Aug 27 as the return date for BBC America.

Given past precedent, the BBC doesn't tend to like having Torchwood and Doctor Who seasons running at the same time. My money is on the Saturday after Miracle Day episode 10 airs (and part of that bet is that the DVD release date is incorrect, since I'd heard November previously - this is the first I've heard of October for the second half DVD. Unless the November date is for the Complete Series 6 box set, of course).

Given that there are at least two public screenings in August, there is really no way they would leave its transmission until November.

All signs point to Aug 27/Sep 3.
