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…

    There is something behind the doctor but you can’t really see it

    If I weren’t so worried about the whole revealing the name thing, I’d have spent time to say… I love the poster! Very mysterious, the doctor hidden in the smashed window. It looks really wonderful. The font is very nice with the time lord writing in it as well.

    Revealing the Doctor’s name is probably the worst thing to do to keep the show alive… It’s survived for 50 years because of the secrecy, and revealing it for the anniversary would be like the ultimate last page. Don’t reveal it Moffat…

    I do hope that they do not change the name of the actual program once his name is revealed.

    First of all I hope the daleks return for the finaly and secondly I think the doctor is more than just another time lord. I think he is an god like figure who is master of his own destiny similer to the cartmell masterplan. I don’t like the idiwa of him being a madman with a box but a lonly god

    This is so weird though, cause most of the other titles/posters gave away hints as what the episode was about, this time I’m not sure what to expect with this poster.

    I don’t think he should be a madman in a box for me the doctor is a godlike figure who is more than just another time lord

    I think they should reveal the name. Maybe if they had never made a big deal of it and wouldn’t get people excited about it but now they HAVE to.

    I think that his name is just be Doctor Who, and here’s why I think that!

    1. In the underwater menace he gives note to Zaroff signed Dr W
    2. In the highlanders he calls him self Doctor von wer. (Doctor who in German!)
    And 3. I think that it would do the show justice if it was named after him!!!!

    Hold on , I am a bit confused, is the final episode of series 7 the 50th anniversary special or is the 50th anniversary special broadcast on another date?

    I heard that someone in The Name of the Doctor, that the someone will kidnap all the Doctors friends and I think there kidnapping his friends to find out his name. So who wants to find his name out in Doctor Who then? Oh Yeah Madame Korvarian and the Silence wanted to know the truth didn’t they? I remember people were saying that she was still out there so could she and the Silence be back? You never know.

    Doctor: …Alright, fine! I lied. My real name is not John Smith! It’s actually Matt Smith!

    We know that he tells River at some point, because she knows it in “The Library”! So hopefully, he just tells her!

    On checking out the latest photos of the special, is my imagination working overboard or is John Hurt wearing a leather jacket suspiciously similar to Christopher Ecclestone’s one? It would be a way round a problem.

    Do not say it, do not whisper it, do not allude to it. Let him just be the “mad man with a box”. A Fifty year old mystery should remain just that: A Mystery”! Just be a Time Lord, and “seldom interfere with affairs of others “. I do not want to sit with a cushion over my face and cotton wool stuffed in my ears at the risk of anything shattering the years of enjoyment. I’m going to find somewhere to go and be childish again now.

    Don’t panic, they won’t reveal his name, after all he didn’t die in series 6, really “marry” River and we didn’t meet his “wife”. It’s probably referring to the Doctor’s friends fighting in his name or something like that.

    if they say his name then i will never watch dr who again

    I knew it, I guessed it a while back. You can tell when names are getting rubbish when you can guess them weeks or months before they are announced.

    Very intriguing title, I hope his name isn’t really revealed though, maybe whispered inaudibly. It would take away the meaning of the show.

    Rubbish name!
