Re: 12th Doctor Announcement Coming In October?

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.

"Hey kids (and geeks alike), just in time for the anniversary get your picture taken in a TARDIS!"

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

These displays are not on ground level (I assume, from past precedent. Might be wrong), and not accessible without a cherry-picker, so doesn't quite work. Plus, if that was what it was for, they'd want it there all summer to catch the tourist trade.
Not that I'm endorsing any conspiracy theories. It's just a final display item to get a bit more publicity just before the special.

Not at ground level! Then how can I get my picture taken IN the TARDIS!!?!

Yeah, I doubt the 12th Doctor is coming soon...

What if it's the Valeyard in one of those boxes?

Bleargh. Might as well be the Rani.

(As a side note, I hope we never see the Valeyard again.)

(GAH!)

But, it would be hilarious if they set an entire story in some sort of self aware barnyard that turned out to be the Doctor's future self...

Ok. Maybe not hilarious.

Re: 12th Doctor Announcement Coming In October?

Ok, that's interesting. But it would mean them giving away the whole look of a new Doctor in the special, without anything to publicise for the follow-up season...

Re: 12th Doctor Announcement Coming In October?

Considering that the page says "A Doctor & iconic monster t-shirt EVERY MONTH in 2013," and there are no iconic monsters in silhouette between January and November, then it stands to reason that December is probably a Dalek.

One of those Top Secret Daleks they can't show a photo of.

Re: 12th Doctor Announcement Coming In October?

There's an iconic monster every month, not just once-- that's why there are two shirts per month. The second January design is a Dalek T-shirt based on "The Dalek Invasion of Earth." If the first Doctor shirt is anything to go by, there are no character images on the Doctor shirts, only fake logos, so they wouldn't need a twelfth Doctor costume or look, although what they would use for such a design is an open question. The company's announcement on Facebook coyly says "...and who knows what may appear in December."

Re: 12th Doctor Announcement Coming In October?

I was trying to be charitable. I'm still reeling from this Moffat interview; I can't decide if he's drunk or if he's deliberately yanking the interviewer's chain.
