Rumor of the Day: We're not gonna learn the Doctor's name after all

This is either the biggest disappointment or the greatest relief you'll have all day. 

Doctor ... who? It's been in the title for 50 years, and Steven Moffat has been hinting for some time now that he aims to answer that titular question. Even the title of Who's seventh-season finale is "The Name of the Doctor." So, like most of you, we've been both anticipating and dreading this 50-years-in-the-making revelation.

But has Moffat been playing us all for fools? That's the latest rumor from the Daily Star.

Rumour has it that although characters in the show will discover the secret, viewers will be kept in the dark as the name won’t actually be broadcast or shown when it airs on Saturday, May 18.

A source said: “We may have to wait another 50 years to find out. Steven Moffat is a big tease.”

So this great revelation is one for people in the show, not those watching it? We don't know what we feel more -- frustrated or relieved.
