Final Series 7 Episode: The Name of the Doctor

Final Series 7 Episode The Name of the Doctor

From the official site…

The title of the series finale has been revealed and is the hugely intriguing: The Name of the Doctor.

The ‘poster’ for the series’ final adventurewas unveiled today and it also confirms that Alex Kingston is back, joining Matt Smith and Jenna-Louise Coleman for what promises to be a jaw-dropping end to a spectacular series.

But we’re not there, yet! We’ve still to unravel the mystery of Clara – the woman ‘twice killed’ and yet still by the Doctor’s side… What secrets does she hold? And in the weeks ahead we’ve a trip to a haunted house, a journey to the centre of the TARDIS and a nightmare clash with the mighty Cybermen. But after all those adventures we have The Name of the Doctor and stand by for something that you might always have believed to be impossible…

    That’s exactly it. Doctor /Who/. His name was hidden in plain sight all along, but we were to busy being cryptic about if his name was actually ‘John Smith’ or ‘Please’ (tee hee, random reference). I reckon his last name is actually ‘Who’. We’ve just been too blind for too long.

    Just a theory.

    Hmmmmm not bad, but no don’t think so! Think it is the the side of the doctor that he suppress now. He became the Doctor (healer ) This person we meet (John Hurt) is the side he lets no one see his secret shame. Not who he is now but who he was.

    What a great title and episode. I cannot praise the story enough, it was the most sombre, gripping and emotional Doctor Who story ever, and IMO it outdoes the previous two finales.

    They shouldn’t reveal the name of the doctor, but I hope they do.
    If we find out the name, the show would no longer be DOCTOR WHO, it would be : (insert name here)

    They have ways to get around 13 lives, what happens if the Doctor has a machine to extend his Regenaration life cycle, and just look at the master! How many times did he regenerate?
