Doctor Who is moving closer to its Season 7 finale and showrunner Steven Moffat tells us that we’re “in for a shock.” The final episode will be called “The Name of the Doctor,” a little piece of information we’ve never known. So, will we really learn it? Well, we’re definitely going to learn something big.
“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,” Moffat says in the Radio Times episode guide. “And I think you’re in for a shock.” River Song (Alex Kingston) will also return in this episode. Fans know that she is the only one who knows the Doctor’s true name.
Here is the official synopsis for the episode: “Someone is kidnapping the Doctor’s friends, leading him towards the one place in all of time and space that he should never go.” Doctor Who airs Saturday nights on BBC America. And check back tomorrow for my video breakdown of this week’s episode, “Hide.”
