Moffat also described the finale as the ‘maddest episode ever’ and ‘loads of fun’, with a host of characters set to make a comeback including Winston Churchill and creepy villains The Silence.
The show will also feature a tribute to late actor Nicholas Courtney, who played The Brigadier in 107 episodes across more than 20 years before his death in February.
The doctor will be told of his death in a nursing home, with Moffat saying: ‘In a story about the Doctor going to his death, it seemed right and proper to acknowledge one of the greatest losses Doctor Who has endured.
“[It] is probably the maddest Doctor Who story ever. But it answers pretty much all the questions about what we saw in ‘The Impossible Astronaut.’
“We kind-of know who River Song is, but we don’t, because no one has been asking who her parents were. And the big question is, who is she to the Doctor? She seems to behave like a wife or lover. How is that possible?
“This is where we reveal what it’s all about. So you do get answers to all the questions — except for one, because that’s the way I am.”

I should hate this man, but I love him.

Red herring is an idiomatic expression referring to the rhetorical or literary tactic of diverting attention away from an item of significance. For example, in mystery fiction, where the identity of a criminal is being sought, an innocent party may be purposefully cast in a guilty light by the author through the employment of deceptive clues, false emphasis, ‘loaded’ words or other descriptive tricks of the trade. The reader’s suspicions are thus misdirected, allowing the true culprit to go (temporarily at least) undetected. A false protagonist is another example of a red herring.
The orphanage scene in “The Day of the Moon” terrifies me. That was also one of the first episodes that I made my siblings watch, and they were all freaked out too. The fact that all four of us were together, shrieking in terror and yelling advice at Amy (“Why are you splitting up?! Don’t go in there! You idiot, haven’t you ever seen any horror movies!?!”) kept me from literally hiding behind the couch. I did try to hide my face in my big brother’s shoulder though.
“I think one of the glories of Doctor Who is that it’s an extremely funny show. One of the first things we wanted to do when we chose a new Doctor, was make sure he was funny. It’s just a tremendous benefit that he happened to be a bit ugly!”
— Beth Willis mentioned the fez to Piers and I before he even wrote it. He said, “I’m thinking of putting Matt in a fez in episode 13.” And of course both Piers’ and my jaws hit the floor and went “A fez? You’re kidding me, you’re going to put Matt in a fez? If we put Matt in a fez, Matt will never take the fez off. He will want to wear the fez for the whole of the next series. It will be glued to his head. He’ll be wearing it, you know, with his own clothes. It will be a nightmare.” And he said, “No no, I’ve got a cunning plan; as soon as he’s got the fez I’m going to kill the fez.”
