Re: Finale discussion thread (spoilerifictitle insided) *SPOILERS WITH

Is it possible this is part of an official disinformation campaign?

Re: Finale discussion thread (spoilerifictitle insided) *SPOILERS WITH

Do we know if this alleged top secret media event even took place? Are any other journalists talking about the event? If not, definitely fake. If they are, should be easy enough for them to deny the storyline.

They haven't got the time to make the series on a regular basis but have the time for this? And why bother. It's hardly a topic that's got the nation gripped. It's one or two fans who desperate for attention or who think they're getting one over on people.

The thing is though, while those photos may be faked, every bit of official information about the episode (particularly the DWM preview) supports the original leaked synopsis. (All the extra stuff that other people are claiming is in the episode, not so much.)

In retrospect, the thing that really gives it away as being fake is the person claiming that their sister works for DWM and that's how they got to see it. DWM has a tiny staff and it would be easy to find out who it was and for them to lose their job if it was true.

Disinformation just isn't that hard. There are no actors, directors, grips, or camera operators involved, and the only special effects budget -- if any -- is the cost of a handful of Photoshops. Moffat could scatter a dozen different ideas for misdirection over a single dinner with a cheaply paid co-conspirator, and it's off to the races.

I've often wondered why the big franchises don't employ misdirection more often, and the only credible downside I've ever encountered is the suggestion that someone in PR might get testy if bad ideas create a negative buzz.

Speaking of DWM, I'm hearing rumors that BBC didn't renew Panini's license and that a new publisher (not Titan and not Future, someone else) will be handling the official magazine come the fall. The sticking point, according to rumor, was that the BBC wanted a digital format, but Panini wasn't willing to do so.

Hm, and Marcus Hearn has just taken up a freelance editing job at Panini - perhaps a change of team is what it'll take for them to keep the licence?

The Doctor's name is obviouslyJohn Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt!

There, that's worth 100 pounds (or $154, since I'm a Yank).

The story we have been discussing here seems more and more likely to be correct - this trailer gives the game away given what we know:

Still we get a guest appearance from

I thought hat, and a look at the DWM masthead would show that women are short on the supply on their editorial team. But then again, the reference to the Doctor Who Magazine could mean Doctor Who Adventures, and there are plenty of women working on that..
However, I still suspect it's a fake.

As for the 'top secret media event': there's been a press screening for all important episodes for a long time (till five years ago I'd have been at it... last on was The Next Doctor). Prior to that they did them for the season starts, but they moved over to also doing the finales rather than sending them out as preview discs to better control access (if someone's got a disc, then can show it to a friend). But these screenings/discs often omit the final scenes (for instance, the Army of Ghosts disc cut just as the Void Sphere opened, without revealing what it contained). From the DWM preview of next week's ep,, that seems to be the case with the final scene of this season (ie, if rumour is correct, the surprise appearance of another Doctor in the last show).

Supposed to be Jenna inserted into "The Five doctor's" episode


And so Clara Oswin leaps from timeline to timeline. Putting right what once went wrong....
