In a parallel universe I'm sure we got an Eight Doctor series and there would be no gap between the original serials and the revived series. I bet it was awesome too because Number 8 (the first Doctor I ever really watched) was funny and awesome and even though it was nice to see him again in The Night of the Doctor we needed more than that.
I've always thought of the 8th as "My Doctor". As a kid I watched his one outing as the Doctor and definitely would have kept watching his adventures. It wasn't until relatively recently I started watching the 9th, 10th and 11th adventures, but I still have a soft spot for the 8th.
Would you mind if I used this Image as an avatar pic for an Online roleplaying game? I like each of my charicters to have an icon that matches them, and my Doctor Moreou inspired one was very hard to match.
matt smith was okay, he definately improved a lot since the ponds left, they were really aweful companions. clara has helped bring the ratings back up to scratch again, she is such a great companion, more like the companions from the classic doctors plus we are getting to see a better side to matt smiths doctor when he is with her
I was around 6 or 7 when Paul McGann debuted as the eighth doctor in the Doctor Who tv movie. I saw it on youtube not too long ago b/c i don't recall seeing it back then. If I had to pick a doctor to consider "my" doctor, it would be Eight even tho he didn't have a series following the movie (which I wouldn't have seen anyway b/c I live in America)
