Not only is Matt Smith returning for the eighth series, that will take place after the November 23rd 50th Anniversary special and the Christmas Special, but the BBC confirmed that Steven Moffat will be back for the 8th series and “is already plotting a brand new run of adventures for the Doctor.”
This news will make many a Whovian quite relieved.
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…
“There is one place you must never go…”
“This is the Doctor’s greatest secret…” “And it is discovered!”
In “The Name of the Doctor,” Clara (JENNA-LOUISE COLEMAN, Emmerdale, Captain America: The First Avenger) is summoned to an impossible conference call, alerting her that the deadly Whisper Men are closing in on Vastra, Jenny and Strax.

Doctor Who: Recap of S.7:Ep.10 – Journey to the Centre of the Tardis and Promo/Synopsis of the Crimson HorrorSunday, April 28th, 2013
Synopsis: The TARDIS is on a countdown to disaster when it crashes, and the Doctor has 30 minutes to find Clara and stop an explosion that will destroy his ship.
My thoughts: The beauty of this episode was that we got to see some of the hidden gems in the Tardis. Yes, there is a pool, an observatory, a Beauty and the Beast-esque library and we see a little room where there are bits and bobs from the Doctor’s past adventures as well as a book that lists his name. We also learn how the Tardis is powered and how it can regenerate the things it needs. We also see how it can defend itself.
We learned all this at the expense of the Tardis. The Doctor once again tries to have Clara and the Tardis become friends, but when Clara attempts to fly the Tardis a salvage ship takes a hold of her and it gets wrecked with Clara trapped inside of her. So, the Doctor drags the crew of the salvage ship, in hopes of him handing over the Tardis, to assist him in saving Clara.
When all hope is lost, as always, the Doctor figures our (with the help of Clara, of course) how to save his beloved Tardis. But, there was something more that he finally understood… Clara is just a girl.
I want to give kudos to my niece for figuring out who those crispy critters were that were haunting Clara, the salvage crew and the Doctor. I’m not giving it up because you should watch this fun and at time harrowing episode.
My one question is.. why does the Tardis not like Clara?
Next time: In Victorian Yorkshire, the Doctor and Clara investigate a series of strange deaths where the corpses are left with glowing red skin.
The BBC stated the following about the season finale episode:
The ‘poster’ for the series’ final adventure (above) was unveiled today and it also confirms that Alex Kingston is back, joining Matt Smith and Jenna-Louise Coleman for what promises to be a jaw-dropping end to a spectacular series.
But we’re not there, yet! We’ve still to unravel the mystery of Clara – the woman ‘twice killed’ and yet still by the Doctor’s side… What secrets does she hold? And in the weeks ahead we’ve a trip to a haunted house, a journey to the centre of the TARDIS and a nightmare clash with the mighty Cybermen. But after all those adventures we have The Name of the Doctor and stand by for something that you might always have believed to be impossible…
Lordy… I cannot wait.
Poor Doctor… but so happy to have him back.
