Hidden In Plain Sight: Capaldi & McGann in Christmas Poster?

Why are Paul McGann and Peter Capaldi hiding in the new Doctor Who Christmas special poster? Released today, to images are available to promote The Time of the Doctor.

The first is a portrait of Matt Smith and Jenna Coleman, with a ghostly Peter Capaldi staring from the embers behind the Cyberman’s head. Accompanying this is a landscape version, in which Paul McGann’s face can be seen in the flames of another fire.

Doctor Who: Peter Capaldi & Paul McGann in The Time of the Doctor?

While Steven Moffat said at the weekend’s Doctor Who Celebration event that we wouldn’t be seeing Paul McGann again, this image perhaps hints that he hasn’t gone just yet…

One Doctor at a time is the real rule – ‘Who would be on the lunchbox?’ is always my question when we talk about having more than one Doctor.

Of course, as we all know, The Moff Lies.

Someone, somewhere, said “fake”.

We’ll ignore how rude that is; this isn’t a two-bit Tumblr.

Instead, you guys make your own minds up with the images from the BBC:

Feel free to download and inspect.
