But why would an extra, or one for kids to stand in, or one for Peter Cushing/the Watcher/the Valeyard/a Dalek/the Borad, be scheduled to go up two months after the event opens? That's the really interesting part of this report. It might contain something spoilery other than a representation of the twelfth Doctor, but if it's not a spoiler, why go to the trouble of putting it up halfway through the event? Maybe it's something more elaborate designed to draw crowds after the novelty of the original presentations wears off...
Well. Let's do the math, shall we? The first 11 go up at the END of August, yes? Then two months later... the end of October, the other one goes up. What's after October? November. The 50th anniversary.

I don't think there's much of a conspiracy here.
