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.
