Must be slow at the Radio Times today. Observe this delightfully silly inflation of a Tweet and pic into a news article:
According to Paul Jones..."This is my moment!" tweeted Paul McGann as he posted this atmospheric photo of himself as the eighth Doctor, arms outstretched, in the console room of 11th Doctor Matt Smith's recently refurbished Tardis."
"Judging by his outfit (and less foppish hairstyle) this is the eighth
Doctor in his later years, as seen in 50th anniversary prequel The
Night of the Doctor, and was most likely taken during filming on The Day
of the Doctor."
"McGann's seven-minute episode prompted calls from many fans for an
entire prequel series following McGann's incarnation. Is this a teaser
that it might actually be happening? Probably not – but only time will
The one bit the article doesn't mention is a comment McGann made at the start of March: "A privilege to spend St David's day in Cardiff with such a friendly, funny crowd of revellers. Thanks to you all."
So the picture might have been taken then, if he took a little time out of his day to have a look at the TARDIS set. Which would make a great deal of sense, but probably means he didn't get up to any filming if he was just there for a short time. Although, Davison did work wonders with "Time Crash", so anything's possible.
