In the latest edition of Doctor Who Magazine, acclaimed writer Neil Gaiman exclusively reveals secrets about his script for one of the most eagerly-anticipated Doctor Who adventures ever – The Doctor's Wife! But who on earth is she...?

If this episode works like it’s meant to work, you will go from curiosity, thinking ‘who is this person?’ – to amusement – ‘She’s very funny, she’s mad, oh my God, she’s biting him, she’s a bit weird! – to irritation – ‘Why is she so high and mighty?’ – to heartbreak, genuine, absolute real heartbreak. And to joy.
