Notes


This is the final story of Season Thirty Three (New Series 7) and has the intriguing title "The Name of The Doctor" and has been described as ‘a jaw-dropping end to a spectacular season’.

Written by Steven Moffat this story has been directed by Saul Metzstein, who directed "Dinosaurs on a Spaceship", "A Town Called Mercy", "The Snowmen" and "The Crimson Horror".

This story revealed the mystery of Clara Oswald, provided closure for the character of River Song and introduced an unknown incarnation of The Doctor. It features the return of Alex Kingston as River Song, Neve McIntosh as Madame Vastra, Dan Starkey as Commander Strax and Catrin Stewart as Jenny Flint. Also returning was Richard E. Grant playing the part of The Great Intelligence.

River Song's previous appearance in the show was in "The Angels Take Manhattan", while Madame Vastra, Strax and Jenny previously appeared in "The Crimson Horror".

This story also featured new aliens called The Whisper Men who bear a strong resemblance to The Trickster that was seen in The Sarah Jane Adventures.

Executive Producer and lead writer Steven Moffat stated that he wanted to have a new monster in the finale after the show had seen the reappearance of old monsters the Ice Warriors and the Cybermen. The idea of The Whisper Men came from ‘the thought of stylish whispering almost faceless creatures’.

This marks the first television story to refer to The Doctor by his number after Clara used the term ‘Eleventh Doctor’. Previous stories, such as "The Lodger" and "The Five Doctors" have either heard the number as ‘Eleventh’ or as a regeneration ‘Fourth regeneration’ respectively.

In this story, it was revealed that Clara has lived thousands of lives throughout The Doctor's history, saving him from The Great Intelligence's sabotage in each life, finally revealing why The Doctor met two versions of her at the Dalek Asylum and in Victorian London. However, according to Clara, The Doctor almost never notices her, with the exception of the First Doctor and the Eleventh Doctor.

Ultimately, Clara's companionship with The Doctor is something of a paradox; The Doctor might not have invited 21st Century Clara to travel with him if he had not met the echoes of her in the Dalek Asylum and Victorian London, but if she had never travelled with The Doctor, those echoes would never have existed.

Clara's splintering into multiple copies is somewhat reminiscent of what occurred to Scaroth in the 1979 Fourth Doctor story "City of Death". Clara, however, made a deliberate choice to put herself into a situation where she would become divided whereas Scaroth was caused by an accident.

It is clear that not every copy of Clara is identical in all details, especially in memory and circumstances. Most obviously, only Victorian Clara seems to have the full name Clara Oswin Oswald, while in "Asylum of the Daleks" she was Oswin Oswald and the Clara that The Doctor met in "The Bells of Saint John" was Clara Oswald up until The Doctor asked her if Oswin were her middle name, which she denied and then decided she liked. Each Clara appears to live a normal life under the circumstances she is born into, including one who lived on Gallifrey.

The copies of Clara that least remember The Doctor are the ones who seem to have the most luck actually interacting with him. While she does successfully intercept the First Doctor before he steals the wrong TARDIS, most of her other active attempts to seek out and save The Doctor seem not to work out (or at any rate, work out off-screen and in a way which does not involve interaction with him). By contrast, the three times she meets the Eleventh Doctor, she doesn't actually remember him and merely gets caught up in events in such a way that she does, in fact, save him.

In this story Clara regains her memories of being trapped in the TARDIS that occured in "Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS".

The ‘most important leaf in history’ is shown and is returned to Clara (see "The Bells of Saint John" and "The Rings of Akhaten").

Clara is heard screaming ‘I don't know where I am’ several times while going through The Doctor's timeline. She's said this before in "The Bells of Saint John" and as a copy of her in the Dalek Asylum was being converted ("Asylum of the Daleks").

Clara attempts to make soufflιs and states that her love of them stemmed from her mother. Interestingly, her Oswin Oswald copy, in the Dalek Asylum, made a soufflι specifically on the occasion of her mother's birthday ("Asylum of the Daleks" and "The Snowmen").

The full address for the Maitlands' home is finally given in this story. A closeup on Madame Vastra's hand-written envelope reveals that she's living at 30 Oak Street in Chiswick. This ties in with "The Bells of Saint John" where we only got to see the house number, 30, on the right doorjamb. Interestingly Donna Noble, who travelled with the Tenth Doctor, also lived in Chiswick.

Clara refers to having seen eleven Doctors meaning she has not interacted with any future incarnations of The Doctor, if there are any.

Events from River Song's death during the 2008 Tenth Doctor story "Silence in the Library/Forest of the Dead" are recounted to explain her presence in this story.

Because The Doctor was responsible for saving Jenny's life and turning Strax into a nurse, his absence from the universe makes Jenny disappear and Strax revert to a more typical Sontaran.

Interestingly, Vastra remains both unchanged by and aware of the changes to the timeline, possibly implying she was strong enough to remember Jenny and Strax.

Jenny and Madame Vastra play Spring from The Four Seasons as they enter their conference call.

Jenny refers to the different appearance of the ‘conference call’ as a change in the desktop theme, the same terminology used to describe the Console Room's appearance by the Fifth Doctor in "Time Crash".

Strax expresses that he did not know that River Song was a woman and he also mistakes the boy, carrying the conference call message, as a girl - so once again demonstrating his difficulty of separating the genders (see also "A Good Man Goes to War" and "The Snowmen").

The Great Intelligence says that The Doctor has been cruel several times, telling about the leader of the Sycorax, whom the Tenth Doctor kills in the 2005 Christmas special "The Christmas Invasion", Solomon, the merchant whom the Eleventh Doctor sent to his death in the 2012 story "Dinosaurs on a Spaceship", the Daleks and the Cybermen.

The Great Intelligence states that The Doctor will be known as The Valeyard before the end of his life. The Valeyard appeared in the 1986 The Trial of a Time Lord season of stories, where he is described as ‘an amalgamation of the darker sides of The Doctor's nature, somewhere between his twelfth and final incarnation’.

The Great Intelligence also mentions The Beast, and Storm, as names for The Doctor. One of the names the Daleks have for The Doctor is the Oncoming Storm.

This story contains clips of different versions of Clara scattered throughout The Doctor's timeline. Imagery of all The Doctor's prior incarnations (including a colourised version of the First Doctor) are used during these scenes in which Clara and The Great Intelligence interact with The Doctor. Archive footage used are:
  • Clara advising the First Doctor to steal his Type 40 TARDIS on Gallifrey (colourised from "The Aztecs").
  • Clara seeing the Second Doctor running across a palm-tree lined beach in a fur coat (with footage taken from "The Five Doctors").
  • Clara calling out for the Third Doctor as he's driving away in Bessie ("The Five Doctors").
  • Clara chasing after the Fourth Doctor on Gallifrey ("The Invasion of Time").
  • Clara finding the Fifth Doctor trapped ("Arc of Infinity").
  • Clara trying to find the Sixth Doctor in his TARDIS.
  • Clara attempting to rescue the Seventh Doctor from falling off of a cliff ("Dragonfire").
  • Clara running after the Eighth Doctor.
  • Clara watching the Tenth Doctor as he stands in The Library.
  • The Ninth Doctor runs past Clara while she was inside The Doctor's time stream.


While many of these appearances are taken from actual footage of the original actors in character, many of them are lifted from different contexts than they appear here. For example, there was no previous footage of the First Doctor stealing the TARDIS that would become his. Similarly, the Second Doctor has never before seen before running across a palm-tree lined beach in a fur coat, although he was seen running in a fur coat in "The Five Doctors".

The Second and Eighth Doctors crossed timelines at some point, as evidenced by Clara's encounter with the both of them on the palm tree-lined beach.

The First Doctor and the Eleventh Doctor interact with Clara, and the Third Doctor and Seventh Doctor appear to notice her, but only for a brief moment.

This story features, for the first time on television, The Doctor prior to stealing the TARDIS. This event had previously only been seen in the comic strip adventure: "Time & Time Again". The opening scene includes a representation of The Doctor's granddaughter Susan Foreman and reference to The Doctor's original exodus from Gallifrey (as a globed city, previously seen in "The Sound of Drums/Last of the Time Lords"), with Clara directing him to steal the Type 40 TARDIS because it will be more ‘fun’.

The Capitol and the Citadel in these scenes look a bit different from those shown in "The Sound of Drums/Last of the Time Lords" and "The End of Time" - showing the Citadel and the globe resting on a bigger structure below where the TARDIS workshop is located.

When the First Doctor steals the TARDIS, neither he nor Susan are wearing Gallifreyan clothing. The Doctor has mentioned his dislike of Time Lord dress sense in previous stories ("Time Crash" and "Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS").

Audio clips can be heard when The Doctor points his sonic screwdriver towards the wound in time left by his travels, similar to the scene in the console room in "Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS". The audio clips in this story include:

The use of these archive clips mean that this story contains the greatest number of Doctors in any medium, with twelve Doctors.

This is the first televised story in which we see The Doctor's TARDIS in what appears to be its default form, in the scenes set on Gallifrey. We also see it flying through the vortex soon after the First Doctor steals it.

The TARDIS default form is slightly different from, but similar to, those seen in the TARDIS bay on Gallifrey in the 1969 Second Doctor story "The War Games".

The concept that time travel leaves scars upon the universe is previously alluded to in the description of the horrors of the Time War mentioned by both The Doctor and one of the members of the High Council in "The End of Time". Both of them suggest that the writing and rewriting of time in the course of the war created the horrors, among others, as an unintended side-effect.

When The Doctor connects Clara's memories to the TARDIS through her hand, he reassures her by saying ‘This won't hurt’, only to apologise afterwards with ‘I lied’ so repeating the same lines that Rory Williams said to his father in "Dinosaurs on a Spaceship" and the lines River Song said to Amy Pond after injecting her with the radiation vaccination in "The Time of Angels".

Whilst discussing The Doctor's secrets, Vastra is heard to state that The Doctor doesn't share his secrets with anyone, and that if Clara is under the impression that she is an exception, she should ask herself what is his name. Previously, in a conversation with the Dream Lord, Amy Pond stated she was The Doctor's closest confidante. The Dream Lord proved her wrong by asking her what The Doctor's name is, which she couldn't answer ("Amy's Choice"). Nor could Ace answer the same question asked by Lady Peinforte in the 1988 Seventh Doctor story "Silver Nemesis".

Vastra mentions The Doctor dying in the Dalek Asylum ("Asylum of the Daleks"), on Androzani ("The Caves of Androzani") and in Victorian London ("The Snowmen"). By mentioning The Doctor dying where the Fifth Doctor regenerated, "The Caves of Androzani", it is possible that Clara was not able to save The Doctor every time.

The Doctor has been killed prematurely before, and, just as in this, the stars went out, and his actions undone ("Turn Left").

Among other things that have been undone are: saving Jenny, making Strax good ("A Good Man Goes to War") and stopping Davros from obliterating the Universe with his Reality Bomb ("The Stolen Earth/Journey's End").

The Doctor also previously tried and failed to help Amy Pond remember Rory Williams after he was erased from history in "The Hungry Earth/Cold Blood".

The prophecy of The First Question is referred to again, and silence indeed falls ("The Pandorica Opens/The Big Bang", "Let's Kill Hitler" and "The Wedding of River Song").

The Whisper Men comment about Clara as ‘the girl who died will die again’, which is similar to what The Silence said about Rory Williams in the previous season finale, "The Wedding of River Song" - ‘the man who dies and dies again. Die one last time’.

The Whisper Men refer to The Doctor as ‘the man who lies’. In "A Good Man Goes to War", Colonel Manton also refers to The Doctor as ‘the man who lies’. Also in "The Wedding of River Song", River Song tells Amy Pond that the first rule regarding The Doctor is that ‘he lies’.

It is revealed that ‘The fields of Trenzalore’ will become The Doctor's final battlefield.

The Doctor saw his gravestone before, in the 1985 Sixth Doctor story "Revelation of the Daleks", in which he muses that he had never thought precognition of his own death would be so disturbing. However, this turned out to be a fake set up by Davros.

The Doctor and River Song both mention The Doctor's hatred of endings ("The Angels Take Manhattan"). River Song also states this as the reason for him saving her to the Data Core. Ironically, this took place in the same story in which The Doctor exclaimed, ‘You need a good death. Without death, there'd only be comedies. Dying gives us size’ ("Silence in the Library/Forest of the Dead").

John Hurt's unknown incarnation of The Doctor has a full beard and moustache. This is one of the few times on-screen that The Doctor has been shown with facial hair ("The Leisure Hive" and "The Impossible Astronaut/Day of the Moon").

This is the second season finale, of the revived show, not to feature a Dalek ("The Sound of Drums/Last of the Time Lords"), though the Dalek Asylum is mentioned and appears in a flashback ("Asylum of the Daleks").

This is the fourth season finale, of the revived show, to end with a cliffhanger ("Bad Wolf/The Parting of the Ways", "Army of Ghosts/Doomsday" and "The Sound of Drums/Last of the Time Lords"), and the first since Season Twenty Nine (New Series 3). "The Stolen Earth/Journey's End", "The Pandorica Opens/The Big Bang" and "The Wedding of River Song" all didn't end in proper cliffhangers, and "A Good Man Goes to War" and "The Angels Take Manhattan" are only mid-season finales (the latter of which doesn't have a cliffhanger anyway).

A prequel to this story was released immediately after the preceding story, "Nightmare in Silver" on the 11th May 2013 via the BBC red button service. "She Said, He Said" has The Doctor and Clara each having a monologue about how little they know about each other and that they discovered each other's secret at Trenzalore.

On the 12th May 2013, a week before this story's first broadcast, the BBC announced that a small number of Doctor Who fans in the USA had received their Blu-ray box set of the second half of the seventh series early due to a distribution error, and asked those who had received the final story early not to spoil it for other fans.

The Plot

WARNING: May Contain SpoilersHide Text
The Name of The Doctor

Conference Invite
Conference Invite

Madame Vastra and Jenny Flint learn of a prophecy, told by a condemned and insane man, regarding The Doctor - in particular, he claims to have a ‘secret’ about The Doctor. Using soporific drugs they hold a conference call to bring themselves, Strax, River Song, and Clara Oswald across time and space into a dream realm where they explain the prophecy relating to the planet Trenzalore. However, during the conference call, Jenny is attacked by strange faceless creatures known as The Whisper Men,. Thinking quickly, River Song forces Strax, Vastra and Clara to wake up before they too are attacked.

Clara wakes up back in contemporary London to find The Doctor looking for her. She quickly explains to him what she remembered, including the attack on his friends and the apparent death of Jenny. The Doctor decides that they must go to Trenzalore to save them even though, as he explains to Clara about the prophecy relating to his death, that Trenzalore will be the place he will be buried, and so is the one place that he should not travel to.

The TARDIS however, resists, unwilling to cross The Doctor's timeline, but he manages to crash the time-machine on to the planet which they discover has been ravaged by a giant war in the past and is now covered in gravestones. One of the stones looks like a massive effigy of the TARDIS, but The Doctor reveals that it actually is the future TARDIS, dying and thus unable to control its transdimensional functions. The Whisper Men then appear and attack the duo. Clara however, notices that one of the gravestones is for River Song, something that The Doctor realises is impossible due to her physical death at the Great Library (see "Silence in the Library/Forest of the Dead"). River Song then appears to Clara, and tells her that although she can see her due to the conference link, The Doctor cannot. With River Song's help, Clara suggests that the gravestone is actually a secret entrance to The Doctor's tomb. Realising that this is the case, and so as to escape from The Whisper Men, The Doctor and Clara crash through the stone and so enter The Doctor's TARDIS.

Elsewhere, Vastra and Strax, having been attacked by The whisper Men when they woke up from the conference call, find themselves outside the giant TARDIS, along with Jenny's comatose body; Strax manages to revive Jenny before they are surrounded by more Whisper Men. They discover that The Whisper Men are part of The Great Intelligence led by Dr Simeon (see "The Snowmen") and although he has died, he remains as a conduit for The Whisper Men, who can shift their appearance to look like him.

While Clara and The Doctor are running through the telepathic fields of the dying TARDIS, Clara begins to remember the events of when she was trapped inside the TARDIS (see "Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS") through the telepathic link with the TARDIS. The Doctor and Clara soon arrive outside the giant TARDIS, where they are held, along with Vastra, Jenny and Strax, by Dr Simeon and The Whisper Men.

The Whisper Men
The Whisper Men

Dr Simeon stands at the door to The Doctor's tomb, stating that only The Doctor's name will open it, demanding they gain access or else he would have The Whisper Men stop his friends' hearts. The Doctor refuses but River Song appears at the last moment. Forced to act, so as to save everyone, she speaks The Doctor's real name allowing the doors to open. Inside they discover the Console Room but instead of where the console would normally be there is a pulsating column of light. The Doctor tells them that it is the scars of time travel that he has left on the universe.

Dr Simeon declares his intention to climb inside and undo the deeds of The Doctor's past; though Dr Simeon knows he will die, the act would also destroy The Doctor. His entrance into the column results in The Doctor collapsing to the floor, as he is ‘dying all at once’. As The Great Intelligence disappears, Vastra, Jenny and Strax find that all the stars outside are going out, erased from existence by the new timeline. Jenny also disappears, and Strax denounces Vastra as ‘reptile scum’ - the new timeline making him forget that they are friends. Vastra is therefore forced to kill Strax to save herself.

Clara's knowledge about her existence deepens, and she realises that if she also enters the timeline, she will be able to save The Doctor from Dr Simeon's meddling. River Song however, tells her that she will not be able to come back, and a dying Doctor tells her not to go, but she decides to enter the timeline anyway. As she is engulfed by the pulsating column of light she calls to The Doctor, ‘Run, you clever boy. And remember me’, before she disappears.

TARDIS End
TARDIS End

Clara witnesses events from all the previous incarnations of The Doctor and helping him along (including helping the First Doctor and his granddaughter Susan Foreman escape from Gallifrey in the correct TARDIS and the events that occurred in "Asylum of the Daleks" and "The Snowmen"). Having saved The Doctor's timeline (subsequently restoring Jenny and Strax along with the rest of the universe), she finds herself falling indefinitely and considers her role as the impossible girl done.

The Doctor, restored to normal by Clara's act, decides to rescue her by entering the column of light. River Song, who believes he still cannot hear her, yells at him to not be so stupid and tries to slap him; however, he is able to catch her wrist. Realising that The Doctor has also been able to see her she sadly asks why he has been ignoring her, and he tells her that goodbyes are too painful, so she must exist as an echo. River Song makes The Doctor either give her a proper goodbye or promise to see her again; The Doctor commits to the latter. The Doctor then enters his own timeline in an attempt to save Clara.

He discovers that Clara has fallen into a cavernous place, and sees ghosts of his past incarnations race past her. The Doctor's voice guides Clara to catch the leaf that was responsible for her life (see "The Rings of Akhaten") and this helps The Doctor find her. They embrace but as they are about to leave, they spot one more figure nearby, whom Clara has never seen before. The Doctor reveals that this is one of his incarnations that didn't hold the moniker of The Doctor due to his actions in life.

The Doctor explains to Clara that his real name was not the point; he chose the name The Doctor himself like a promise, and this mysterious man was ‘the one who broke the promise and this is his secret. As Clara collapses from exhaustion, the figure defends himself, saying that he had no choice and that his actions were ‘in the name of peace and sanity’. The Doctor acknowledges this to be true, but that it had not been ‘in the name of The Doctor’. As The Doctor leaves, carrying the unconscious Clara, the man turns to look at them, showing his elderly face, as the screen credits identify him as ‘The Doctor.

Quote of the Story


 'The path I carved through time and space, from Gallifrey to Trenzalore. My own personal time tunnel, leading back to every moment I ever lived. Every step, every tear, every kiss. Even the days I haven't lived yet. Which is why I shouldn't be here. The paradoxes... very bad…'
