‘Doctor Who’ thing of the day: Season Six teasers

Blastr snagged a couple of scans from the upcoming Brilliant Book of Doctor Who [Amazon U.S.] [Amazon Canada] [Amazon U.K.] that purport to offer hints at what’s to come in 2011’s Season Six.

Now, we all know what a mean ol’ tease Steven Moffat is, so it’s entirely possible that at least some of these are deliberately misleading, and others are outright bullshit. But we’ll still have fun discussing them anyway.

The teases are (with some interpretive capitalization of my own):

The Doctor will be on trial — twice!
Who controls the light sculptors?
You won’t believe what’s buried under Wembley Stadium
Scared of the eye in space? You should be
Take up thy sins and walk — slowly
‘There won’t be a pub quiz on Tuesday because there won’t be a pub’
Beau Geste is cool
Bow Street Runners are cool
Bromley-by-Bow is cool
4 August 1982 — happy birthday, ma’am
Some lies are too much for the psychic paper
‘I won’t take calls from that prime minister’
‘Marc, where are you?’
The only water in the forest is the river
What awaits the TARDIS at the Zero Point?
‘12 years on and Rory’s still terrified of Granny Grainger’
‘I was lost in France’
‘How could a fellow Gallifreyan stoop so low?’
Horror of Bangkok
‘Give it up, Sueet Korn!’
Argonite? Here?
An ordinary block of flats

‘If I saw them walking down the high street, what would I think?’ ‘I don’t think you’d think anything at all, Amy’
Find the lady — before she finds you!
‘Margaret! Come back!’
The Doctor defeats the Sahara Desert
Susannah’s still alive
Mill Green on fire
The Doctor will get married — twice!
What are the dangers of Port Olveron?
502, but never 503
Beware of the kites
‘A pillar of salt, yes — but not because she looked back, looking back is good!’
They’ll have to get a new name for Thanksgiving
Pay attention — it’s not really her
Treading through the sand — on the one night they come back
The Shuddering Brethren, they’ll stick in your mind
‘I’m my own doctor’
Octavian wasn’t lying
Mysterious semblance at the strand of nightmares
The bones of the TARDIS

The ones that strike the most intrigue in me:

The “eye in space” and the “Zero Point” references seem to be harkening back to “The Eleventh Hour”, which — combined with that reference to the Doctor being on trial — makes me suspect anew that the Doctor himself may be Prisoner Zero. We could still discover that.

“Fellow Gallifreyan”? Who? Who? Not the Master. The Rani? How about Drax? Someone else must have survived the destruction of Gallifrey…

“Pay attention — it’s not really her”: Could that be a reference to River? Didn’t some people suspect that the woman who seemed to be River last season actually wasn’t? And was Octavian not lying about River?

Have at it…
