Doctor Who: series 7 finale title, cast & poster revealed
We finally know the title and tag line for Steven Moffat's series 7 finale. Step this way to find out...
"His secret revealed"
That's the promise of the latest and last episode poster released for the current run of Doctor Who episodes, The Name of the Doctor.
Written by showrunner Steven Moffat and directed by Saul Metzstein, the episode welcomes the return of (look away now if you don't want to know) River Song. Alex Kingston's character, not at all incidentally, was the subject of the episode's original rumoured title*, which we've stuck beneath the image for those who'd rather avoid potential spoilers.
The name, the secret, the wife, the companion, the set-up to the 50th anniversary episode... We could be in for something rather special here, don't you agree?
Here's what the official BBC blog had to say:
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 adventure was 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…
