Doctor Who Series 6 Episode 7 Title Revealed

He's just as excited as you are.
You read that title right. It's real, and it's here. We know it, and in a moment so will you.

At the time of writing this post, the BBC's entertainment correspondent reported this literally minutes ago! Of course, the title could always change up until the second of the broadcast; but here it is, as reported by Lizo Mzimba, with a little bit of run-up as background.

First he talks about the production team meeting he was invited to.
"Matt talks a bit about his hopes for DW's 50th anniversary in 2013. Steven reveals another episode title... Does that count as a spoiler?"
This suggests that Matt Smith plans to stay on until at least through Series 7. Then Lizo gave us fair warning.
"Ok. Will tweet in one min, so look away if you don't want to know. (I think it's a new one, but for all I know everyone's known for months."
But, of course, this blog is a spoiler, so we sure didn't care about warnings! He finally revealed Episode 7's title, at least as it stands now.
And there you have it.
Personally, I preferred "His Darkest Hour", but surely the Moff knows best. Now, does this set up Episode 8 for "A Good Man Dies", as per Octavian's warning to the Doctor in "Flesh and Stone"?

Thanks to IntoTheVortex for pointing this out to us so immediately and to Lizo Mzimba and the Doctor Who production team for giving fans something more to look forward to.

I'm pleased about this. Doctor Who titles are no stranger to hyperbole, and 'His Darkest Hour' kind of tempts fate by saying it will be darker than all prior and subsequent dark moments. Hey, it might be true, but I think that's for the fans to decide.

'A Good Man Goes To War' seems, to me, a much more grim moniker.

Just heard something quite interesting if you think about it. River appeared in 'SILENCE in the library' and people think now she is a member of The Silence and that is the big secret that Amy cant tell the doctor.

I think the secret is that River knows she's about to die—and when she DOES in "Day of the Moon", Amy's secret can save her, sort of like "Star Trek II: Wrath of Khan" with Spock or the Eighth Doctor having Time Lords in his brain.

What I love is that there is no way of knowing for sure, any of this.

What distresses me is that the Moff has set himself with A LOT to live up to. He did that with the last series finale and pretty much failed, IMNSHO.

I think so too. "Pandorica" was one of the best episodes ever, and then "The Big Bang" just . . . failed.
