    USA Shoot Confirmation & Details

    articleimage_409 The BBC and Steven Moffat have officially confirmed the rumour (previously reported by DWF) that Series 6 of Doctor Who will indeed be going on a location shoot to America for the first story of the series. They have also confirmed that the exact location they’re going to is the Utah desert, which will also be where the TARDIS trio arrive in the actual story as well. While in the 1960s, The Doctor and his newly-wed companions will also be called on a secret summons to the Oval Office.

    Her's the press release...

    The sixth series of Doctor Who will open with a two-parter set in the US, the BBC has announced. Scenes will be filmed in the Utah desert for a story set in the late '60s in which the Doctor, Amy and Rory find themselves on a secret summons to the Oval Office. The episodes have been written by new series boss Steven Moffat and co-produced with BBC America.

    Production starts in Cardiff this month with Matt Smith and Karen Gillen.
    Alex Kingston will reprises her role as River Song.

    Moffat said: "The Doctor has visited every weird and wonderful planet you can imagine, so he was bound get round to America eventually.
    "And of course every Doctor Who fan will be jumping up and down and saying he's been in America before. But not for real, not on location - and not with a story like this one."

    Meanwhile, to celebrate this news, BBC America have created a “teaser” for it...

    It's unclear whether The Moff was actually planning on revealing this information at this time, or whether he was forced to by the careless leaking of the location shoot by line producer David Mason on his online CV earlier this month.

    Doctor Who Goes Stateside


    According to the online CV / résumé of a Line Producer on Doctor Who Series Six, David Mason, the programme will be going on a location shoot to the USA for episode "DOCTOR WHO X1.2".

    We have no idea, as of yet, about the nature of this location shoot, whether just brief or as integral as their trip to Croatia was in 'Vampires in Venice' and 'Vincent and the Doctor'. However, we do know from the web page that the Producer credited for this episode is Marcus Wilson, a newby to the crew of Doctor Who.
    The USA location shoot has now mysteriously disappeared from the web page, but a screenshot of it was taken before it had been...

    This is thought to be something to do with one of the many teasers given by Steven Moffat in The Brilliant Book of Doctor Who: “They’ll have to get a new name for Thanksgiving.” And The Moff's tease in the latest Doctor Who Magazine issue #426: “Have you ever wondered about Apollo Ten and a half?”  This episode is also apparently an adaptation of Terrence Dicks’ Virgin New Adventures story Blood Harvest which features the Seventh Doctor.
