Looks more like Paul McGann to me? Could be wrong :P

Those 3 shadows in the background (together), look like more Doctors too.

I'm not ready for my Doctor to leave; Matt plays the part so well. Definitely makes me sad to think about it-even though I know the Doctor isn't going anywhere.

For some reason,I was sure it was called 12th Night. Have they changed the name or did I just dream it?

Capaldi is clearly looking up Clara's skirt...

The ole Doc is catching up with the Daleks with the recent ...of the Doctor titles.

What have we got now
Death of.. (SJA)
Name of ..
Night of ..
Day of ..
now Time of..
Will we get Space of.. a minisode where he's trying to fit a new couch into the tardis, she doesn't like it so keeps making the rooms smaller so he has no space ;)

Although Silent Night would have been a much better title given the subject and timing.

Silent Night is the worst Christmas song ever. Why does Christmas music suck so bad anyways?

On one of the others sites they're speculating that one of the faces is actually McGann... for some reason.

PocketGal said...

One on the left looks like Craig Ferguson, maybe he's finally getting his cameo

When in Rome...

Neither is McGann. The face in the flames in the poster on the left is Capaldi. The face in the flames on the poster on the left, however, is also Capaldi.

I'm with everybody who thinks it should have been called Silent Night.
