It’s the Doctor…but probably not the one you were expecting!
Two years and a week ago, fans of the Eighth Doctor got an excellent 50th Anniversary surprise on the interwebs! Although Paul McGann’s Eighth Doctor has more adventures than any other Doctor when you count up all the novels, audios, and the like, he only got to visually play the part for one night in Doctor Who – The Movie back in 1996. This was rectified by Steven Moffat with The Night of The Doctor, released via the web (and eventually on DVD) on November 14, 2013. Clocking in at just about eight minutes long, the minisode showed us what the Eighth Doctor was like towards the end of his incarnation, and also showed us his regeneration into The War Doctor (John Hurt).
To celebrate The Night of the Doctor‘s two year anniversary, That Time On Doctor Who by Brent Kincade revisits those very special and bittersweet eight additional minutes of the Eighth Doctor…
FUN WHO FACT: The chalice used by the Eighth Doctor in “The Night of the Doctor” was reused by Peter Capaldi (the 12th Doctor) in a minisode called “The Doctor’s Meditation”. When the chalice was spotted in photos from the set of the minisode, many fans speculated that the Doctor might return to Karn! They were wrong.
