The Wedding of River Song Details

The official website has now confirmed that the Series 6 finale is indeed called, The Wedding of River Song.

Here are some further details from the Radio Times, starting with Steven Moffat’s preview:

And here it is at last – the episode with all the answers, as the Doctor journeys to Lake Silencio for his date with destiny. While I was writing this, my wife asked me, “What happens?” and when I frowned, and pondered my answer, she hurriedly added, “In one sentence. Quite a short one.” I thought a moment and said, “The Doctor goes to his certain death – and it doesn’t work out as well he expected.”
So welcome to what is, without doubt or serious competition, the wedding of the year! Early reports indicate that it could make On Her Majesty’s Secret Service look like a fairly successful honeymoon…

And some other bits:

  • Guest stars Frances Barber (Kovarian)
  • Guest stars Simon Callow (previously Charles Dickens in The Unquiet Dead)
  • Guest stars Simon Fisher-Becker (Dorium)
  • Guest stars Mark Gatiss
  • Guest stars Ian McNeice (Churchill)
  • Quote #1: “I don’t want to marry you.”
  • Quote #2: “I don’t want to murder you.”
