Matt Smith and the Doctor Who crew filming in America for the first time The BBC announced today that season six of Doctor Who, which delivered record ratings for BBC America earlier this year, will open with a spectacular two-parter set in the U.S. and penned by 'Who supremo' Steven Moffat.

There have been thirty-one series of Doctor Who produced since 1963, but for the first time ever, the Doctor is coming to America. Season six of the millennial relaunch — currently headlined by Matt Smith — opens with a two-part episode set in the United States scripted by Steven Moffat. The two-parter finds Amy (Karen Gillan) and Rory (Arthur Davill) on “a secret summons that takes them on an adventure from the desert in Utah – right to the Oval Office itself.” Alex Kingston reprises her role as River Song.

I’m excited. The Doctor has come to America before, but never like this. For the first time in the show’s history, Doctor Who is filming stateside.
Sure, there have been episodes set in the states before, but none were filmed on American soil — the closest they got was Canada for the Doctor Who television movie with the Eighth Doctor, which was set in San Francisco. This time, they’re doing it for real: they’re filming in Utah.
“The Doctor has visited every weird and wonderful planet you can imagine, so he was bound get round to America eventually!” enthused showrunner Steven Moffat in a press release. “And of course every Doctor Who fan will be jumping up and down and saying he’s been in America before.
