A little while back, I noticed a flurry of activity in the ol' Twitter feed, campaigning for Paul McGann's return as the Eighth Doctor in the new series. If it could be done, should it? I think so, because there's one completely unique quality to the Eighth Doctor that Steven Moffat could exploit the heck out of. And that is….

  1. 1st of your podcast I've listened to. Just come accross you on my twitter feed and I love it. Good thinking re: 8th Doctor. Reasoned argument and clever idea. You would think it would be looking back, but you're right. We've no idea what he's like as a Doctor. Ok, we know his voice, but his looks, his characterisation, all of that evolves… Let's see it!

    Is there still a requirement for there to be a Doctor-lite episode? Because I've always thought bringing in the 8th Doctor through some timey wimey stuff with a companion would be a great way to do a Doctor-lite episode without actually being Doctor-lite.

  3. Very interesting idea having the 8th Doctor back. The same argument you use about "we have barely seen the 8th Doctor, so we see a new side" is the same reasons the telemovie was criticised when the 7th Doctor appeared in it. Just who the hell is this guy getting shot? Where is the Doctor I saw in the tv advertisements? Or hell, even the guy with the scarf! We could end up with the same problem in a New Who 8th Doctor appearance – fans will love it, but the general public might be forgiven for asking who the hell is that guy in the velvet jacket?
