****DOCTOR WHO SPOILERS********

DON'T READ IF YOU DON"T WANT TO KNOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Apparently the new season of Doctor Who has spawned a large number of rumors, here are some. Of course, take them with a grain of salt, however, it will be interesting to see how much of this pans out.

We already know the first three episodes are called (05.01) The Eleventh Hour, (05.02) The Beast Below, and (05.03) Victory of the Daleks.(the Doctor battles his legendary bad guys during World War II)

Now comes the titles for the rest (from radiofreeskaro.com):

05.04 Time of the Angels (Part 1 of 2) by Steven Moffat
05.05 Flesh and Stone (Part 2 of 2)

These above episodes feature the return of the Weeping Angels featured in the third season episode Blink. Also, River Song, played by Alex Kingston makes a return to the series.

05.06 The Vampires of Venice by Toby Whithouse (creator of Being Human, and the second season episode School Reunion).

05.07 To be announced by Simon Nye (Men Behaving Badly)

05.08 The Ground Beneath Their Feet (Part 1 of 2) by Chris Chidnall (Torchwood)
05.09 Cold Blood (Part 2 of 2)

This 2-part story brings back the classic Who villains the Silurians and the Sea Devils (last seen in the 1984 Fifth Doctor serial Warriors of the Deep)

05.10 Vincent and The Doctor by Richard Curtis (Four Weddings and a Funeral, Black Adder)

05.11 To be announced by Gareth Roberts (Who episodes Planet of the Dead, The Shakespeare Code, Unicorn and the Wasp, Doomsday, Army of Ghosts)

05.12 The Pandorica Opens (Part 1 of 2) by Steven Moffat
05.13 To be announced

Once again, Alex Kingston returns as River Song for the two-part season finale. This episode was also filmed at Stonehenge.

It’s also rumored that the arc of season five will be played out almost through every episode, with all of them ending on a cliffhanger. Another classic villain, rumored to be the Zygons, are stalking the Doctor.

In DWM #418 Production notes: Steven Moffat reels off a list of hints about the new series at the beginning of Production Notes: "the dread truth behind the fifth door", "the ruins of Razbahan", "the Doctor's mistake in the maze of the dead", "the secret of Aickman Road" and "the choice of the Dream Lord".

At least half of the season will have stories set in the past.

The season opener, The Eleventh Hour, begins in past, with new companion Amy seen as a child. The Doctor then goes into his TARDIS, and comes out years later when Amy is now grown up.

Speaking of the TARDIS, regarding the new iteration of the Doctor’s time machine, Moffat says in DWM #417: "I do think the Peter Cushing police box was absolutely beautiful and I wanted to get it into the show, so ... there is a plot reason for it, I wrote in why it happens."
