Celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, the BBC‘s “Doctor Who” has today revealed the title of its season finale. “The Name of the Doctor” will feature the return of Alex Kingston as River Song. Check out the poster art below!
The seventh modern season of the show follows the adventures of The Doctor (Matt Smith) and his new companion Clara (Jenna-Louise Coleman) on their incredible adventures through space and time. Known only as “The Doctor” for half a century, the reveal of the character’s real name has been teased ever since Kingston’s first appearance in 2008′s “Silence in the Library.”
Written by showrunner Steven Moffat and directed by Saul Metzstein, “The Name of the Doctor” will air on May 18. Fans won’t have to wait too long after that for another new episode, however, as a 50th anniversary special will follow later this year, featuring the return of both David Tennant and Billie Piper.
