Steven Moffat teases Trenzalore and The Name of the Doctor

Doctor Who's showrunner and head writer Steven Moffat reveals secrets about the explosive season finale, The Name of the Doctor, exclusively in Doctor Who Magazine 460.

“I feel as though we’re going to deliver,” Steven tells DWM. “We’ve only just finished shooting the actual completed ending – it’s ridiculously secret – but it’s quite a thing, hopefully.”


Trenzalore was first mentioned – by Dorium Maldovar – in 2011 season finale The Wedding of River Song. The Doctor’s visit to Trenzalore would, Dorium foretold, coincide with ‘the Fall of the Eleventh’. “There’s often an element of throwing in some lovely names, and then figuring it out later, but I’ve always had a sort of plan for the Doctor and Trenzalore. Things will be resolved. Things I’ve left hanging in plain sight – and sometimes not in plain sight – will be tied up…”

Doctor Who Magazine issue 460 is available from good newsagents globally from 2 May, or you can subscribe here.
