The Anglophenia Blog on the BBC America website is always good for a few things, well here's Steven Moffat, with a one word answer to a question.
A special Announcment from the BBC.
A special, one-off mini-episode of Doctor Who starring Eleventh Doctor Matt Smith will be shown on BBC Three this Autumn.
Doctor Who returns on Saturday, 27 August 2011 both on the BBC in the UK and BBC America in the USA. Executive Producer and Lead Writer for the series, Steven Moffat had the following to say about the resumption of the 2011 series in the latest from the BBC Press Office. Some may consider some of this to be a little "spoilery" — so be warned if you rather not know any details about the upcoming episodes for 2011.
What do you think of the Doctor's long coat in the promo image?
I'm not sure how long this will remain watchable but enjoy while it does.
Last April we suffered a huge unexpected loss in the Doctor Who community and beyond. The death of the beloved actress, Elisabeth Sladen. Almost immediately following it, DWP Correspondent-At-Large, Colin (AKA "Abersoch") contacted me about putting together a special episode of Doctor Who: Podshock to celebrate Elisabeth Sladen and the Sarah Jane Smith character.
We had just started our series of live shows reviewing the new Doctor Who episodes from the spring 2011 series while Colin and I were discussing what we could do for a tribute. We couldn't record it then. Now that we are in between the spring block and the late summer/autumn block of new 2011 Doctor Who episodes, it allows us to record this celebration episode.

SDCC Reddit questions with Matt Smith and Karen Gillan.
We're still not sure as to when the second half of Series 6 will start, the hint from BBC America is The 27th of August, but the trailer has been released, so get your pause buttons ready for analasis!
Matt Smith appeared on a TV Guide Fan Favorite panel at San Diego Comic Con currently underway in Califronia, USA. On the panel, he mentioned in reference to the episode, A Good Man Goes to War that he thought the Doctor would had caught on sooner who River Song really was and he also mentioned that is all-time favorite Doctor is Patrick Troughton, the 2nd Doctor.
'Doctor Who': Matt Smith tells Comic-Con about 'Let's Kill Hitler' and River Song payoff - From Inside the Box - Zap2it: "The real "Doctor Who" fun doesn't start at Comic-Con until Sunday (July 24), when stars Matt Smith and Karen Gillan join writer (and "Being Human" creator) Toby Whithouse and executive producers Piers Wenger and Beth Willis for a panel in Hall H.
But that didn't stop Smith from making an early appearance at the TV Guide Fan Favorite panel, where he slipped a few teases about the upcoming second half of Season 6 and indulged in a little time travel fantasizing.
When asked about his favorite episode in his two-year tenure as the Doctor, he confessed that it's still to come. "The next episode... 'Let's Kill Hitler,'" says Smith. "[Creator] Steven [Moffat] is in fine form, and there's a great monster, which is important.""
