Current TARDIS occupants Matt Smith and Jenna-Louise Coleman have been talking about the Doctor Who Series 7 finale, The Name of the Doctor, to the BBC. Discussing the villains of the piece, The Whispermen, Matt describes them as "a modern day classic with a brilliant style. They’re truly terrifying!" whilst Jenna adds they are the "best baddies! I really think they are going to become another Moffat classic."
Regarding the plot of The Name of the Doctor, Smith teases: "With the 50th [anniversary], this is going to be by far the biggest year in the history of the show. And the finale is just the start. It focuses on a pivotal moment in the Doctor’s life and the life of his companion. It’s a complete game changer and it all starts now."
Whilst Coleman states, "There are little bits and pieces, which Steven [Moffat] planted a couple of years ago. It’s just really clever and a crucial moment in the Doctor’s life that you get to explore," and on the topic of Clara and her impossibleness, the actress says, "All I can say is that Clara hasn’t just met the Doctor three times before..."
