“No one can know the Doctor’s name…”
In a new issue of Doctor Who Magazine (via NME), Doctor Who series writer and executive producer Steven Moffat joked about what the Doctor's real name is.
Moffat claimed in a jokey response to a fan query in the issue that the Doctor's real name is Mildred. He stated: "No-one can know the Doctor's name, except each successive showrunner. We're taken into a special room far beneath the BBC and given the ancient and special runes that spell his true and awful name. We're commanded never to reveal what we have learned, because then the show would have to be renamed Mildred. Oh, bugger."
