DWO have seen 6.8: Let's Kill Hitler and have put our spoiler-free preview together:

It's been a nail-biting twelve weeks since we last saw new adventures of Doctor Who, and who could forget that jaw-droppingly awesome cliffhanger!? 

Let's Kill Hitler picks things up some time after the events of A Good Man Goes to War, with Amy and Rory trying to get The Doctor's attention, in a great situation reversal to the Series 6 season opener.

The Doctor is still looking for Melody Pond as all three of the TARDIS team get ready for the shock of their lives…in a corn field!!!

The episode feels quite filmic in places, and there's some fantastic direction that helps make use of the comedic scenes to full effect. The Doctor, Amy and Rory, (or rather Matt, Karen and Arthur) work so well together, and their unit makes for one of the best TARDIS crew combinations that the show has ever seen.

Those of you expecting the story to be an all-out World War II extravaganza, may be a little disappointed. Sure we get Hitler, and some great scenes involving Germany on the brink of War, but the real focus of this episode is River Song.

We get even more pay-off for the arc that has spanned the past couple of seasons, with a few more questions raised, which will hopefully be answered before the end of Series 6.

With another episode due from the show runner himself this season, Steven Moffat is showing no signs of tiring with either his cleverly imaginative story-writing or his love for the characters he has created.

Expect some new characters too. Mels, played by Nina Toussaint-White, shines in all of her scenes, which lift the lid on some clever background information from Amy and Rory's past, present and future. We also get to see a new organisation within the show, in the form of 'The Justice Department' - without giving too much away, you can't help feeling this is a new element to watch with great interest.

A final point worthy of note in this story is composer Murray Gold who provides a tremendous score for Let's Kill Hitler, which helps round off one of the strongest episodes in the season so far.

Five things to look out for...

1) A clever use for crop circles.

2) "Shut up ___, I'm focusing on a dress size"

3) "Guilt. Also Guilt. More Guilt"

4) A Sherlock-esque scene involving River and The Doctor.

5) We get to see the return of a certain blue diary.
