Doctor Who: The Impossible Astronaut - Synopsis

The BBC Press Office have released the synopsis for the first episode from the forthcoming series of Doctor Who:

The Impossible Astronaut - by Steven Moffat
our envelopes, numbered 2, 3 and 4, each containing a date, time and map reference, unsigned, but TARDIS blue. Who sent them? And who received the missing number one? This strange summons reunites the Doctor, Amy, Rory and River Song in the middle of the Utah desert and unveils a terrible secret the Doctor’s friends must never reveal to him.

Placing his life entirely in their hands, the Doctor agrees to search for the recipient of the fourth envelope – just who is Canton Everett Delaware the Third? And what is the relevance of their only other clue: ‘Space 1969′? Their quest lands them - quite literally - in the Oval Office, where they are enlisted by President Nixon himself to assist enigmatic former-FBI agent Canton, in saving a terrified little girl from a mysterious spaceman.

Doctor Who: The Impossible Astronaut will broadcast on Saturday 23rd April at 6:00pm on BBC One and BBC One HD. Doctor Who Confidential will follow at 7:00pm on BBC Three and BBC HD.
