The BBC have just released a new interview with show-runner, Steven Moffat, who talks about the rest of the current series of Doctor Who. Excerpts below...

When asked about the inspiration behind the Whisper Men (from the forthcoming The Name of the Doctor), he had this to say;

Having brought back two of the classics, the Ice Warriors and the Cybermen, this year we wanted a brand new monster to bring chills in the finale. And the thought of the stylish whispering almost faceless creatures was an idea that firstly scared me and that I thought would work well in an episode that looks forward and back.

Why the change of the look of the Cybermen?

One of the things that the Cybermen historically like to do before involving themselves in a military campaign is run up a new outfit. Throughout the classic series they always changed their appearance and we've been very consistent with them. I thought it was time they went back to their tailor and had a re-model!

What can you tell us about the finale?

It's full of surprises and questions that have never been answered in the history of Who, including the Doctor's greatest secret. We're not pretending, we're not kidding, it's actually going to happen. The episode is called The Name of the Doctor and involves our hero in a conflict that is very, very personal to him. Usually he's saving other people, but this time he might be the one who needs to be saved. We'll also find out what makes his new companion so impossible, and there's a surprise that no one has got right so far, and one that will change the course of Who forever!

Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS is transmitted at 6:30 tonight, on BBC1 and BBC1 HD.
