Ahhh, a person can almost hear the voices emanating from the faint image:
John Hurt-as-The-Doctor: “What I did, I did without…”
Tenth Doctor: (under breath) “Oh dear, here we go again.”
Eleventh Doctor: (straightening bow-tie) “It’s his thing. I think he’s very cool.”
John Hurt-as-The Doctor: …peace and sanity–and for a time, as a big dragon on Merlin!”
But seriously, a lucky (lucky for the rest of us!) and quite sneaky fan reportedly got this quick snap of a scene from the 50th Special as it was shown at the MediaGuardian Edinburgh International Television Festival a few days ago. It shows Matt Smith, David Tennant, and John Hurt all standing in some kind of brightly-lit control room.
True, it’s a bit blurry but it is apparently real–as can be seen on the Tennantnews.blogspot.co.uk–and is the first image of the three Doctors together. The photographic evidence of a legend–three legends!
And as stated by Tennantnews, editor Boyd Hilton of Heat Magazine tweeted the ACTUAL dialogue that is said to go along with the scene:
John Hurt's Doctor to Matt Smith & David Tennant's Doctors: "I'm looking for the Doctor"; Tennant: "Well you've come to the right place"

Now, I truly want this photo to be real. I really do. But after being burned by that fake 50th special trailer online, my mind just can’t fully commit. I keep getting that creepy “digitally inserted Tennant” vibe.
What do you think Kasterborites? Are you happy just to take it at face value as amazing evidence of the three Doctors together again for the first time…or can you not quite shake the feeling of it being like one of those old grainy “confirmations” of the Loch Ness Monster or Bigfoot?
