Rumoured to air over the Saturday and Sunday of Easter weekend next month, the first two episodes of Series 6 feature the return of Alex Kingston as River Song and are written by show-runner Steven Moffat.
Talking to SFX, Wilson reveals: “The way Steven’s written the script is that it’s very much the feel of an Englishman abroad – it’s the Doctor’s take on America, so it’s seen through that lens. With the script as your guide you couldn’t help but have a British reaction to the environment.”
He added: “They took us to places they were taking a bit for granted, saying, ‘Oh, you’ll want to see this, you’ll want to see that,’ and we were going, ‘Wow, this is like the movies of our childhood.’ Toby [Haynes] was doing a location recce, saying, ‘That’s where they did Raiders Of The Lost Ark! That’s where they did The Searchers!’ There’s almost a mythic quality to some of the locations. Monument Valley was just stunning.”
