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.
