The BBC have today released a number of small press interview details from Steven Moffat, Matt Smith and Jenna-Louise Coleman on Doctor Who's upcoming 50th Anniversary season finale, The Name Of The Doctor. As per usual, we've rounded up all the latest on this thrilling blockbuster eighth episode of the Series Seven Part Two run, and here's everything that's been said so far:
- THE NAME OF THE DOCTOR SYNOPSIS- "Clara is summoned to an impossible conference call, alerting her that the deadly Whisper Men are closing in on Vastra, Jenny and Strax. Someone is kidnapping the Doctor's friends, leading him toward the one place in all of time and space that he should never go. It's a deadly trap that threatens to unravel his past, present and future..."
- MATT SMITH ON THE FINALE- "With the 50th, this is going to be by far the biggest year for the show. And the finale is just the start. It focuses on a pivotal moment in the Doctor's life and the life of his companion. It's a complete game changer and it all starts now!"
- JENNA-LOUISE COLEMAN ON THE CLARA MYSTERY- "All I can say is that Clara hasn't just met the Doctor three times before."
- STEVEN MOFFAT ON THE WHISPER MEN- "The great dilemma is that Doctor Who is never more like Doctor Who when it is introducing a new monster, but equally when it's reviving a foe from the classic era. Having brought back two of the classics, the Ice Warriors and the Cybermen, this year we wanted a brand new monster to create chills in the finale. And the thought of stylish, whispering, almost faceless creatures was an idea that firstly scared me and that I thought would work well in an episode that looks forward and back."
- STEVEN MOFFAT ON THE FINALE- "It's full of surprises and questions that have never been answered in the history of Who, including the Doctor's greatest secret. We're not pretending, we're not kidding, it's actually going to happen. The episode is called The Name Of The Doctor and involves our hero in a conflict that is very, very personal to him. Usually he's saving other people, but this time he might be the one who needs to be saved. We'll also find out what makes his new companion so impossible and there's a surprise that no one has got right so far, and one that will change the course of Who forever!"
Doctor Who continues with The Crimson Horror next Saturday on BBC1 at 6.30pm, with The Name Of The Doctor set to broadcast on May 18th.
