Can you keep a secret? Probably not as well as Doctor Who executive producer Steven Moffat's two sons, Joshua, 13, and Louis, 11. These days, nearly every television producer, director, writer, actor and caterer is apprehensive about revealing details and plot points from unaired episodes of their shows. But Moffat is the master. He even gave one of the series' characters the catchphrase "No spoilers." He purposely misleads the press. "I lied my arse off," Moffat told 6,500 attendees at this year's San Diego Comic-Con regarding the content of an upcoming episode. He also runs a tight spaceship: Nondisclosure agreements are as ubiquitous as silver alien masks on the British science-fiction show's set.
Joshua, however, is the first to...
The BBC has renewed Doctor Who for an eighth season, the company announced in conjunction with Saturday's Season 7 finale.
[Warning: The following contains spoilers from the Season 7 finale of Doctor Who. If you haven't watched yet, read no further or we'll be forced to sic our memory worm on you.]
One mystery down, and an infinite number more to go on Doctor Who.
Jenna-Louise Coleman and Matt Smith
Finally, we'll uncover the mystery of the Impossible Girl.
On Saturday's finale of Doctor Who (8/7c, BBC America), Clara (Jenna-Louise Coleman) is called into action when the creepy Whisper Men kidnap Victorian pals Vastra, Jenny and Strax (Neve McIntosh, Catrin Stewart, Dan Starkey). In order to save his friends, the Doctor (Matt Smith) must venture towards the one place that no Timelord should go because it could undo everything in his past, present and future.
Another May weekend, another deluge of season finales — though none are likely to blow the mind with as much daring, panache and imaginative fervor as BBC America's gloriously inventive Doctor Who (Saturday, 8/7c), which signs off until next time-travel with one of its trippiest yet emotionally powerful episodes to date. Steven Moffat's typically clever script, brimming with colorful incident and characters grandly heroic or villainous, finds a nifty way to salute the 50-year history of Doctors as we learn more about the impossibly irrepressible companion Clara (the smashing Jenna-Louise Coleman), first seen in a cosmic haze — "I don't know where I am ... Sometimes I think I'm everywhere at once" — with only one constant to guide her: "I have to save the Doctor." That same impulse prompts lizard lady Vastra, her wife Jenny and the stalwart Strax to summon Clara to a psychic conference call, interrupted by the menacing "Whisper Men" (reminiscent of the ghoulish Gentlemen from Buffy's classic "Hush" episode).
Neil Gaiman is a Whovian at heart, and it's never more clear than in the episodes he writes for Doctor Who.
Following the success of "The Doctor's Wife" two years ago, Gaiman returns with "Nightmare in Silver," which airs Saturday at 8/7c on BBC America. Showrunner Steven Moffat was able to lure back the award-winning writer with one succinct request: Make the Cybermen scary again.

Will the Crimson Horror be the Doctor's undoing?
On Saturday's all-new Doctor Who (8/7c, BBC America), the Doctor (Matt Smith) and Clara (Jenna-Louise Coleman) take another jaunt into England's past only to be faced with the mystery of strange, red corpses washing up in the Yorkshire river...
"It's bigger on the inside."
On Saturday's Doctor Who (8/7c, BBC America), viewers will get to see just how accurate that statement is when the Doctor (Matt Smith) travels to the center of the TARDIS to find his companion Clara (Jenna-Louise Coleman), who is lost inside the time-traveling spacecraft. Perhaps her predicament is the result of that combative relationship she has with the TARDIS?

In Sunday's brilliantly entertaining finale to another splendid season of CBS' The Good Wife — we choose to forget that Kalinda's ex ever existed — Denis O'Hare returns as a judge whose sciatica keeps him off the bench, pacing around the courtroom as he presides over a late-night emergency hearing over ballot-box irregularities in the next day's neck-and-neck election for Illinois governor. (Alicia's husband Peter is sweating every single vote.) Like Judge Abernathy, you may find it difficult to stay seated as this episode (9/8c), written by series creators Robert King (who also directed) and Michelle King, takes its many clever twists and turns, specializing in mischievous misdirection and game-changing surprises up to the very last jaw-dropping minute.
