“This is my moment!” tweeted Paul McGann as he posted this atmospheric photo of himself as the eighth Doctor, arms outstretched, in the console room of 11th Doctor Matt Smith’s recently refurbished Tardis.

McGann’s seven-minute episode prompted calls from many fans for an entire prequel series following McGann’s incarnation. Is this a teaser that it might actually be happening? Probably not – but only time will tell…
