“I’m a Doctor. Though probably not the one you were expecting.”

Behold Doctor Who fans; your wishes, nay demands have finally been granted.

Today the BBC unveiled the official prequel episode to the 50th Anniversary Episode “Day of the Doctor”. Despite the countless rumours and reports to the contrary, the seven minute episode stars a very welcome classic Doctor.

Take a look…


Did you hear that noise? It was the sound of the entire internet collapsing on itself. So, by all accounts this episode has gone down incredibly well. Now that Moffat got something unarguably right, does this mean the world will end?

Has this made you more excited about the Anniversary Episode? Did you enjoy this prequel? Comment below, and expect more Doctor Who discussion in the final days of the time war (err, I mean, final countdown the anniversary)

    I’ve been hoping we’d get SOMETHING with Paul McGann since I heard about the 50th anniversary, but I’m so glad we not only got this, but they kept it a surprise for this long. In a day in age where spoilers are abounds, this was so welcomed.
    I have a soft spot in my heart for the Eighth Doctor. I caught the TV movie when it first aired and Paul McGann was my first Doctor. Then I got into the Big Finish audio dramas.
    This was a great surprise to wake up to today.

    This was so cool! I’ve never actually seen Paul McGann’s Doctor on-screen, but he is instantly recognisable from his voice. I always tuned in to the radio when the Eighth Doctor stuff was on the air ever since I first heard that there was Doctor Who stuff on the radio back when I was young and completely obsessed

    This was a pleasant surprise to find on the Internet today. I have to say that I’m happy we got at least something with the Eighth Doctor with the 50th Anniversary. Because of this, I would live to see more of him pre-Time War. He puts on such a great performance!

    The problem Paul McGann had is he was given that shitty pilot.

    • Chris Harrison

      He definitely got a rough deal. It’s such a shame the script wasn’t better, and it wasn’t so “American”. Paul pretty much carries that whole pilot though.

        Can you think of else that was bad about that pilot?
