That's it? That's all you're going to give us? Some dude's chin? That's not even Matt Smith, unless Matt Smith had some serious cosmetic surgery. It looks like a teaser for a "Smallville" teaser poster. YOU'VE GOT TO GIVE US MORE THAN THIS, BBC?


All will be revealed in 2013. TWO-THOUSAND-THIRTEEN?

Oh, balls.

Which MPAA Rating Leads to the Highest Grossing Films? | Guillermo Del Toro's "Pacific Rim" Teaser Poster: Who Invited the Iron Giant?

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • Four

    Also: Hi.Gallifrey in the background. Nice touch, there.

  • Tiffany Speegle

    Looks like it might be Luke Smith, Sarah Jane's son -- AKA The Archetype. http://tardis.wikia.com/wiki/L...

  • DeistBrawler

    Is it Matt Dallas from "Kyle XY?" Why would he be on the show?


  • Dalekbuster523

    I think it's Luke from SJA

  • Wembley

    Well, in the theme of "the lips are wrong" I'll go with fan favorite--Adric.

  • BWeaves

    The Master?

  • halfpastoctober

    Sorry, but there's a whole series of those and they're all fakes. The "Who Is Returning" poster thing was started on Tumblr by
    http://drsong.tumblr.com/ and since she published the first series of them, people have been doing their own. They're really cool fan art, though.

  • Cabbage418

    I think I found some of those fan made posters (according to this site: http://doctorwhofandom.net/201... but this poster looks different. The other posters have known doctor costumes and a different font. As for the young man with the big lips - I got nothin'.

  • hypnosifl

    Also, if you look carefully at the bottom right of the poster above, it says "harbek", which led me to the tumblr of the original creator of the poster here--you can see she says below the image that it is "Luke" from the Sarah Jane Adventures. Harbek has posted a bunch of other posters in the same style, see here.

  • hypnosifl

    The different font would be covered by halfpastoctober's comment "since she published the first series of them, people have been doing their own." (the original ones by drsong can be found in these posts) The young man in the fan poster above has gotta be Sarah Jane's adopted son Luke Smith (played by Tommy Knight)--see the image here, same cleft chin, same shape of jaw, same crease in the middle of lower lip...it all seems to match up.

  • Madefromclay

    Pretty sure this is fake. Where did the poster come from?

  • Hater from Siloam Springs

    The spires in the background are the spires of Gallifrey.

  • psemophile

    Isn't that Sarah Jane-Smith's son?

  • That was my first impression, as well.

  • Enarra

    That actor's name is Tommy Knight, and looking at the images in Google ... I'm positive it's him. Kind of a boring choice?

  • Jezzer

    I think it could be good. At the very least, it could be an opportunity for a tribute to Elisabeth Sladen and a chance to posthumously close Sarah Jane's character arc.

  • Jezzer

    *sees message about someone returning to "Doctor Who"*

    *sees that it isn't Donna Noble*

    *scoffs and closes tab*

  • Fher

    i am just waching the 6 seasons again, just cause summer tv sucks, and i found Donna to be the best companion, i love their interaction without all the love thing. Also the worst companin Martha, i cant event see her on screen anymore, her acting it dreadful.

  • Jezzer

    I didn't really dislike Martha. I rank the companions thusly: Donna, Rory, Rose, Martha, Jack, Mickey, Amy.

  • bleujayone

    Hmmmm.... Could it be Adam Mitchell, the Ninth Doctor's companion who was banished from the TARDIS in the 2005 episode "The Long Game" back to his home in year 2012?

  • Holly

    that was my first thought. any ideas what the image on the background is?

  • bleujayone

    To me it looks like the Domed Citadel on Galifrey as seen in "The Sound of Drums" with the dome now broken.

  • Stevo

    Looks like Captain Jack Harkness to me

  • Mike

    The chin looks like an 18 year old John Barrowman.

  • BWeaves

    That's what I thought, but the lips aren't right. I see Sefa thought that, too.

    I wish Jamie was returning. Hot Scots in kilts.

  • annie

    Mmm hot Scots. Frankly, I love that we all creepily know Barrowman's lips so well.

  • annie

    Which would be awesome, but he doesn't have the right lips.
