The Eighth actor to play the Doctor in the iconic British television programme Doctor Who, Paul McGann, has tweeted a photograph of the Eighth Doctor in an unexpected location. Presumably taken during the filming of the minisode The Night of the Doctor in April 2013, the shot shows the Time Lord in what appears to be the Eleventh Doctor’s TARDIS console. McGann captioned the photo with “This is my moment …!” Could this hint to more Eighth Doctor minisodes? Only time will tell.

In an EXCLUSIVE video we capture the moment when a select group of Time Lords come together to mark 50 years of Doctor Who. Tom Baker, Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy and Matt Smith, all in the same space and time.
On 20 November the Doctor Who Mind Robber reported on a claim by the Huffington Post that Tom Baker would appear in the 50th Anniversary Special, The Day of the Doctor. Baker was indeed telling the truth when he stated, ”I am in the special, I’m not supposed to tell you that, but I tell you that very willingly and specifically; the BBC told me not to tell anybody but I’m telling you straightaway.”
Relive Tom Baker’s appearance with the Eleventh Doctor, Matt Smith, at the BBC’s Doctor Who website here.
Filming has commenced for the 2013 Doctor Who Christmas Special and on 10 September the crew was spotted in Cardiff. Matt Smith, who is currently bearing a skin-head type hairdo following his filming of How to Catch a Monster in Detroit earlier this year, donned a floppy hair wig for the occasion. The Christmas Special will be Smith’s last appearance in Doctor Who and will see him regenerate into the Twelfth Doctor, Peter Capaldi.
