Four minutes? That's ages! What if I get bored?

What a lovely, lovely surprise it was this week! A real ‘one for the fans’ mini-episode featuring the very welcome return of Paul McGann as the Doctor. We had been led to believe that apart from David Tennant, there would be no other past Doctors involved in the 50th anniversary, with the actors themselves claiming they hadn’t been called. It could still be the case for the others, but finally we see the regeneration of Doctor 8 to the ‘War Doctor’ or ‘Doctor 8.5’ has he’s being called.

One sad part of this is the feeling of being cheated. McGann was always an excellent Doctor, even though his screen time was limited to a sub-par ‘TV Movie’. He’s continued the role in the Big Finish audiobooks, but it’s this episode that gives a real glimpse into what we’ve missed out on.

Stephen Moffat does bring back characters that are popular (Weeping Angels for instance) and I hope that the reaction to ‘The Night of the Doctor’ will mean that we get some more Paul McGann stories…
