I better be a fake out. Because if it's true, Moffat's gonna become the most despised writer for Doctor Who ever.

Honestly, why do we need to know his name. The appeal has always been about a mysterious time traveler and his journeys with companions. Giving a bit of background to him is fine but enough already. Go back to focusing on adventures and not with mysteries surrounding companions.

"So, wait, Doctor... what you've been hiding... running from all your life... is that your name is Eugene?"

There is no way his name will be revealed to the audience. Think about it.

The Doctor's Daughter was not actually the Doctor's daughter.
The Doctor's Wife wasn't actually the Doctor's wife.
I am sure The Name of the Doctor will not yield anything of the sort to us.

To be honest, I don't care about the Doctor's real name. It's totally irrelevant, and would ruin some of the mystique of the show.

I really doubt we will learn his name. With titles like "The Doctor's Daughter" and 'The Doctor's Wife" in the last few years, do you really think it will be revealed? Oh wait, isn't it Theta Sigma? LOL

Agreed.

And I don't think the whole "The Doctor's Name" thing could bother me any more than just knowing that Moffat will get to be the one who "names" The Doctor.

If we *the audience* don't hear his name, I'll be alright with this episode. I wouldn't see it as a cop-out for him to whisper it into River Song's ear, since we already know that at some point she learns his true name. Plot resolved, and mystery for the audience remains.

I don't imagine the audience will hear the name. That would be too much.

I'm curious what the significance of his name is and how much Moffat's borrowing from the Carmell Master Plan.

I would perfectly happy with that. If it is just whispered into River's ear and she reacts, maybe like she knows the name from some legend. But, I have a feeling man newer fans will feel cheated if it isn't given. Us old timers have decades of not having "The Question" answered.

My first thought was that this would be another fake out ala Doctor's Wife or Doctor's Daughter, but they played those very coyly. This time, they seem to be playing up the fact that we will actually learn something. It's a very different way of Marketing that could annoy people. Again, my inclination is that we won't find out and I'd prefer it. But I don't know... it could play out differently this time.

The idea that we may find out what the Doctor's name is really bugs me. The whole reason that it's called "Doctor Who" is because he's a mystery. We aren't supposed to know his darn name. It would just ruin it.

Does this mean they'll be renaming the show to "Doctor Bob Matthews" or whatever his stupid name will be? It's just silly. Razz

No, because at the same time he'll regenerate into a woman. It'll be Doctor Joan Smith.

Well, time will tell of Moffat's mail box and email will be crammed full of hateful letters or not.

We should make a betting pool with this. afro
