Moffat – Doctor Who Finale Will Change Everything

April 28th, 2013 by Marc Comments

Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat has promised that series finale ‘The Name Of The Doctor’ “changes everything”. 

Moffat said the episode will “change the course of Who forever” and went on to tease: “It’s full of surprises and questions that have never been answered in the history of Who, including the Doctor’s greatest secret. We’ll also find out what makes his new companion [Clara, played by Jenna-Louise Coleman] so impossible and there’s a surprise that no-one has got right so far.”

Speaking about the mystery surrounding her character, meanwhile – due to her seeming multiple identities which suggest she has met the Doctor twice before – Coleman said: “All I can say is that Clara hasn’t just met the Doctor three times before.”

Moffat also spoke about the new villains who will appear in the finale episode, The Whispermen. “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,” he said. “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.”

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
