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.
