Doctor Who (BBC America, Saturdays, 8/7C) may be on the verge of making a huge mistake – the show’s seventh season finale is called The Name of The Doctor, and teases ‘his secret revealed.’ Even though the added presence of Alex Kingston, reprising her role as River Song, promises a special hour, I have to wonder if we really need to know The Doctor’s name – the that revelation would sorta, kinda render the show’s title pointless, wouldn’t it? So, I have to ask, what’s really going on here, Steven Moffat?
Follow the jump to see the posters of Doctor who’s remaining seventh season episodes – along with taglines for the next two.
Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS – Episode 10
A spaceship salvage team drags the TARDIS on board, sending its systems into meltdown. As the Doctor marshals the motely salvage crew outside, he realizes Clara is still trapped within his malfunctioning ship, pursued by a dangerous group of ossified monsters. He has just 30 minutes to find Clara and save his TARDIS before it self-destructs.

The Crimson Horror – Episode 11
There’s something very odd about Mrs Gillyflower’s Sweetville mill, with its perfectly clean streets and beautiful people. There’s something even stranger about the bodies washing up in the river, all bright red and waxy. When the Doctor and Clara go missing, it’s up to Vastra, Jenny and Strax to rescue them before they too fall victim to the Crimson Horror!

Nightmare in Silver – Episode 12
This is what we know – Neil Gaiman wrote it and it features Cybermen. I’m not sure we even need more of a tagline that than!
