Set an Email Reminder for Doctor Who: The Doctors Revisited - The Eighth Doctor
When: Saturday, August 31, 2013 8:00 PM
Was Paul McGann The Doctor for the shortest period of time or the longest period of time? That totally depends on how you count, doesn't it? McGann played the freshly regenerated Doctor in a TV movie that saw him battling The Master (Eric Roberts). It was meant as a potential reboot of the series, but that reboot never happened and it was McGann's one on-screen appearance. That makes it the shortest. On the other hand, McGann's Eighth Doctor went on to live in radio dramas and other ancillary material until the series began again with Eccleston as Doctor nine in 2006, which kind of makes McGann one of the longest lived Doctors. Learn all about him tonight.
