The Doctor's real name (or lack thereof) has been used as a running joke since the early days of Doctor Who, and even though Steven Moffat recently claimed The Doctor's real name is Mildred we know this is simply not true.
But what about this unpronounceable, and totally mathematical, name that appeared in a Doctor Who comic book from 1980, could this be The Doctor's true name?
Redditor swanzie shared this earth shattering info, but many weren't convinced since comic book adaptations of movies and TV shows tend to stray from the show's canon as conceived by the creators. Still, it would explain why he would rather simply be known as The Doctor...
