Your Linc at Lunch: The Doctor's Name Revealed? Plus River Song Returns and New Series 7B Posters

UDATE: Considering today's Who news, I decided to add the amazing fan-made trailer called "The First Question" below. I get goosebumps every time.

Well Whovians, this might just be it. We might finally learn the true name of the greatest Time Lord in history. The final episode of Series 7, the one that will lead into the 50th Anniversary Special, is titled:

Doctor Who
Don't worry, I gave a manly squeal....

That's right. As showrunner Steven Moffat told Radio Times:
 "There’s going to be a revelation. I’m not teasing. I’m not wrong-footing you – you’re about to learn something about the Doctor that you never knew before. And I think you’re in for a shock."

 Will we see the fields of Trenzalore and the fall of the Eleventh? What will the Doctor's answer be to "The Question", at a time when he cannot fail to speak or utter falsely? Will it be an unpronounceable Gallifreyan name? Something with the word "Who" in it? (Like 4th Doctor companion and fellow Time Lady Romanadvoratrelundar (or Romana) or even like Grand Admiral Thrawn, whose real name is Mitth'raw'nurodo?)

Or will it not be anything like we're expecting? I trust in Moffat's genius to give us something truly shocking, wholly unexpected, and something truly revelatory. And, as always, some fan will hate it no matter what.

Also some really great news is that this episode will see the return of the Doctor's wifey, River Song.

Whose real name, we all know, is Jk093laksklo Jones.
Now, In the Tenth Doctor two-parter "Silence in the Library" and "The Forest of the Dead" where, in an order to prove that she knew him, whispered the Doctor's name in his ear. He said that there was only one time where he would ever, could ever, tell someone his true name. Will we see this moment at the end of Series 7?

While we're waiting, we still have some great episodes coming up, including the spooky-looking "Hide" tomorrow. And the folks at the BBC have released more movie-style posters for the following episodes:

Doctor Who

All in all it's shaping up to be an exciting few weeks! Well, I think that's enough to fill you up right now! I'll be back soon with more news and geekery from around the web. Share your thoughts below on your theories on the answer to the oldest question in the universe....Doctor WHO?
