The season seven finale of Doctor Who airs on May 18, and it looks like it may reveal one of the biggest secrets about the Doctor – his name. The title of the episode “The Name of the Doctor” seemingly spells it out, but is it too obvious? The fact that Alex Kingston will be returning as River Song makes it all the more curious.
The synopsis is:
Someone is kidnapping the Doctor’s friends, leading him towards the one place in all of time and space that he should never go.
Steven Moffat told Radio Times it’s not just a tease.
“There’s going to be a revelation. I’m not teasing. I’m not wrong-footing you – you’re about to learn something about the Doctor that you never knew before. And I think you’re in for a shock.”
I have a hard time believing that they will reveal his actual name, but we will just have to wait and see.
