In the season premiere, the Doctor (Matt Smith) and his companions Amy (Karen Gillan) and Rory (Arthur Darvill) receive a secret summons that takes them from the Utah desert to the Oval Office in 1969. Mark Sheppard (Supernatural, Battlestar Galactica) guest stars in the episode, which marks the first time the sci-fi series has filmed on location in the United States. Alex Kingston also reprises her role as the enigmatic River Song.

    Thank God, the opener is set in 1969! I was terrified that River Song’s big secret was that she shot JFK, which might be a shark-jumping moment for me!
