Samuel Anderson has no problem being called Mr. Pink. The Doctor Who newbie debuts in the Aug. 30 episode as Coal Hill School math teacher Danny Pink — a nice guy with a possibly not-so-nice background whom Clara (Jenna Coleman) starts dating. But he's much more than just the companion's companion.
"How do we change him back?"
Such impulsive words, which "Impossible Girl" companion Clara will eventually be forced to swallow as she, and we, learn to adjust to yet another fabulous new Doctor, the 12th in his incredible line. As Doctor Who devotees know, change is inevitable in the world of a Time Lord, and each regeneration brings a new personality and energy to the 50-year-old fantasy franchise.

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...
