If it's like any of the other "big" Moffat reveals of the last few years, then one big yawn. Hope I'm proved wrong though.

Surely most people have two kidneys? Maybe it's livers.

"He will fall further than he's ever fallen before" and all that stuff. Total hyperbole.

I have no idea what you could possibly mean.....

(Sense of humour failure on the part of some posters? Or is it just me who thought the OP was being funny?)

It will have to be something fundamental for it to have any impact at all, and - I think - something going back to Classic Who, possibly the first ever episode.

It donít think it would have as much impact if it was something related only to the post-2005 episodes.

For instance, what if we find out the Doctor isnít a Time Lord at all? Or what if the Time Lords let him steal the TARDIS for some devious purpose he was unaware of.

It's his name, isn't it? I thought that had been made very clear. He's been building up to it since Silence in the Library.

Obviously we won't actually find out his name but I think that's what it is.

It's been implied - as in, it's the only thing that's been clearly laid out as a mysterious secret - but never directly referenced. We're clearly supposed to think that his name is important, but it could end up a red herring and as Mulett says, the real secret could be something deeper.

"Doctor's greatest secret" at this moment in time is surely that he's meant to be dead. That cover gets blown in the last episode of Series 7, cue 50th Anniversary episode(s) and Fields of TrentReznor.

That's the first time I've seen the words "Enterprise" and "Better written" in a sentence!

Off you go then. Did you find yourself on a Doctor Who forum by accident?

And you're here because...?

I don't believe for a second that somebody who genuinely feels that way would enter the thread actually. Hope you enjoy the 50th, we know you'll be watching.

you're probably right - the whole TrentReznor question() is best left to the 50th (which could be very well answered by the return of past Doctors)

Yes, I agree. It might well be that the secret about the Doctor's name is indicative of the big revelation, as opposed to it actually being the big revelation.

I also think a big part of Moffatt's Who has involved restoring some of the show's original themes. The whole 'everyone thinks he's dead' story is about making the Doctor a mysterious traveller again, rather than a famous fighter of evil.

So I think the anniversary show will answer a few questions but - more likely - restore a lot of mystery to the character so everyone ends up asking 'Doctor Who?' again.

At least Season 4 of Enterprise did integrate some of the elements from the original series (including the Mirror Universe Story) - aside from the frankly pathetic final episode - and made some attempt to compensate for Season 1-3. This was due to Rick Berman being sidelined, with Manny Coto given Executive Authority for the series. Enterprise also featured Scott Bakula, always enjoyable since Quantum Leap, and Connor Trineer who subsequently featured within Stargate Atlantis, and within a later episode, Peter Weller.

Another series worth catching is Odyssey 5, also Produced/Created/Written by Many Coto, and starring Peter Weller.

I am not convinced that a false war between Star Wars, Star Trek and Dr Who is worthy of attention.... a recent graphic novel featured a crossover between Star Trek TNG and Dr Wh, linking the Borg and Cybermen within the series.

Of course, the post 2005 Dr Who series bears no relation to the original series. However, within the Sylvester McCoy reign, some attempt was made to create a more complex mythology for the character, the assertion being that Dr Who was Merlin.

Probably only when he's breaking in hiking boots.
