8th Doctor 2

America, Prepare Yourself for the Eighth Doctor!

No matter if you have been watching Doctor Who since in began in 1963 or only started watching the current series a month ago, you know that today the show has a long history behind it and there have been multiple men that have given us their impression of who the Doctor is. The tenure of each of these versions of the Doctor have all been widely different, and everyone has those eras they love.

As part of the celebrations surrounding the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who, BBC America has been presenting a retrospective for each Doctor. Starting in January, each month has featured a different incarnation of the Doctor and included comments from many of those connected to the show. Paired with each retrospective was an episode or story arc from that Doctor’s era.

This month, the series looks back at the Eighth Doctor, Paul McGann, and his only onscreen appearance in Doctor Who: The Movie. The special will include interviews with Steven Moffat, and Eighth Doctor companions Daphne Ashbrook and Yee Jee Tso.

The eighth Doctor Who: The Doctors Revisited special will premiere on BBC America on 31st August 2013 at 9/8c.

If you happen to live in the New York City area, the Paley Center for Media will be showing the digitally remastered movie tomorrow, Saturday 31st August 2013 at 1pm.


Rebecca is new to the Who world, having only recently watched the entire new series in a span of 8 days. She is no stranger to sci-fi though, being a life long Trekkie and has vague memories of seeing the 4th Doctor on US television as a child. When not watching, reading, blogging, or talking about Doctor Who, she is a fan of pop culture and loves movies and books so much she has to keep a list of both so she doesn't forget any of them. She also likes to make attempts at various forms of art including photography and painting. Rebecca is currently working her way through as many classic serials and as many books related to the show that she can find and wishes she could have been with the Doctor and Amy when they met Van Gogh.
