Everyone Has An Eyepatch In These Doctor Who Season Finale Promo Pics

By Josh Tyler | 9 years ago

The season finale of Doctor Who arrives in just a couple of weeks, and with a title like “The Wedding of River Song” you know we’re in for something brain-bending. What I can’t figure out is why River’s marriage would result in everyone wearing eyepatches.

That seems to be what’s going on though, in these 19 Doctor Who season finale promo pics just posted by pizquita. Check them out after the jump…

So what’s up? Maybe the BBC’s official episode synopsis will provide a few clues:

The city of London, 22 April 2011 – soaring buildings, glittering and mighty under a perfect blue sky, and life tumbling onto pavements below. And horse-drawn Roman chariots driving through the streets. And a Victorian steam train on a monorail… hang on, like in a sci-fi city, but with Romans and steam trains? And hot air balloons? And pterodactyls? And Charles Dickens appearing on BBC One’s Breakfast! Something isn’t quite right…

In Buckingham Senate, at 5.02pm, Holy Roman Emperor Winston Churchill calls for his Soothsayer to be fetched from the Tower. Greying, unkempt, older, tireder, but unmistakably – it’s the Doctor. “Tick tock goes the clock,” Winston tells him, “but they don’t, do they? The clocks never tick.” It’s always 5.02pm these days. All of history is happening at once. “What happened to time?” asks Winston. The answer, it seems, is a woman…

Or maybe it won’t.

Doctor Who’s “The Wedding of River Song” will air October 1st on BBC One and BBC America.
