Clara Oswald departing Doctor Who the way she did in the episode Face the Raven had Whovians reaching for the tissue box, but the finale of Season 9 may have an even stronger effect. Showrunner Steven Moffat has said that the season ender, entitled Hell Bent, will leave fans “hopefully satisfied, and pleased, and a tiny bit devastated. It’s pretty emotional stuff. We get quite dark. It’s quite a journey.”
The Doctor may be The Hybrid, a creature created from two warrior races. Is he? Ashildr thinks it’s time to tell the truth. Is this the answer to the question – the question that must never be asked, the answer to which must never be given? What has the Doctor been running from all this time, ever since he left Gallifrey in the first place?
Oh, and there is a regeneration happening. But whose?
Hell Bent airs on December 5.
