Celebrate The Doctor Who 50th Anniversary!

Don’t Be Fooled By Anniversary Photo Fakes

Two intriguing new pictures from the 50th anniversary special have emerged, one showing a morose David Tennant standing in front of an explosion, the other showing John Hurt surrounded by bodies.

Alas, they are both fake.

No, they didn’t have the words ‘THIS IS A FAKE’ written under the paintwork in felt tip. Rather, some beady-eyed Doctor Who fans noticed an almost identical snap of the Tenth Doctor in the publicity shot for 2009’s Planet of the Dead, and the story has been unravelling ever since.

Whilst it can’t be proved that the image of John Hurt is a computer-generated fabrication, (or that it is, indeed, John Hurt in the frame), it came from the same source as the Tennant picture, and therefore its integrity is in doubt. Nevertheless, these images demonstrate the immense wonder and speculation that currently surrounds the upcoming special, of which we still know surprisingly little.

It puts one in mind of the rather smashing video trailer – although of course the creator of that particular forgery came clean to demonstrate his/her genius.

There’s only 74 days left to go though, folks. So give that Helmic Regulator quite a turn, and set co-ordinates for 23 November 2013. The Day of the Doctor is going to be a belter!
