The Silent are a species that were introduced in Series 6. They were responsible for the destruction of the TARDIS in "The Pandorica Opens" and for the Doctor's death in "The Impossible Astronaut". They have a special ability where they can edit themselves out of your mind as soon as you look away, and to implant hypnotic suggestions while you're looking at them.

They are working with the religious order called "The Silence" whose aim is to kill the Doctor to prevent him answering the oldest question.
