Is this Paul McGann in Withnail & I? No, it's Harvey Keitel in Death Watch! 7.30 in beanbag cinema.
On the bright side, I got pictures with William Russell and Billy Boyd and asked Paul McGann a question
Peter Capaldi & Paul McGann are.. polar opposites in their portrayals of The Doctor. As much as I love…
//Mark Gatiss is 48 and Rupert Graves is 51. Capaldi is 56. Paul McGann is 54 I think.
11 years ago today, the BBC officially announced that Doctor Who would be returning to our screens in 2005. Since the show's return, we have been introduced to five brand-new Doctors - John Hurt as the War Doctor, Christopher Eccleston as the Ninth Doctor, David Tennant as the Tenth Doctor, Matt Smith as the Eleventh Doctor (the last in the Doctor's first regeneration cycle) and Peter Capaldi as the Twelfth Doctor (the first in the Doctor's new regeneration cycle). 'Classic era' Doctors Tom Baker, Peter Davison and Paul McGann has made return appearances. We have been introduced to nine new companions - Billie Piper as Rose Tyler, noel Clarke as Mickey Smith, Bruno Langley as Adam Mitchell, John Barrowman Official as Captain Jack Harkness, Catherine Tate as Donna Noble, Freema Agyeman as Martha Jones, Karen Gillan as Amy Pond, Arthur Darvill as Rory Williams and Jenna Coleman as Clara Oswald. 'Classic era' companions Elisabeth Sladen and John Leeson made return appearances as Sarah Jane Smith and the voic ...

If you're a fan, you can go and make up a story in your head about how Paul McGann became Chris Eccleton -- Russel T Davies
So Paul McGann is heading to the Belfast Film and Comic Con in October. Actually really tempted as it is on the weekend of my Birthday lol.
I'm always hearing Paul McGann's voice even when it's not him who's speaking!
Starting to write my post about Colin Baker and Paul McGann for blog!
Confession: the Eighth Doctor is my guilty pleasure doctor. Paul McGann and the wig and the pretty lady and his comic companions MM-HMM
Colin Baker Paul McGann slc con highlight Thanks to the nicest gentlemen you'll ever meet
For some reason, I keep reading Less Wrong articles in Paul McGann's voice.
my hearts were beating so fast when i met Paul McGann I almost passed out after the photo op
Can't watch Paul mcgann being beat up. Just want to get a cold compress and give him a love...
Didn't realise that was Paul McGann narrating
Anthony Head, Paul McGann and Billy Boyd added to Belfast Film & ComicCon! Great additions! Might only be able to goSunday but will be there
I'm rewatching the Night of the Doctor. Paul McGann i'm so *sparkly eyes* FAVOURITE DOCTOR EVER HGNGNGNG
*hint* add Paul McGann to the lineup again and I will throw money at you to meet him bc he's a beautiful human
"The 8th Doctor, Paul McGann, and his son. Cannot handle the cuteness!

Paul McGann and his son, cannot handle the cuteness!

Guess who just booked her ticket to Belfast Film and Comic Con :-) Billy Boyd and Paul McGann photoshoots booked too :) Yay! :)
So what you're saying is, we need more scenes with Paul McGann in?
Colin Baker & Paul McGann signed the sides of this child
And Paul McGann could (should) have had a much more substantial role than his brief spot in Night of the Doctor.
Why was Christopher Eccleston afraid of Paul Mcgann? Because Mcgann Hurt Eccleston.
uhm, The Movie, bc Paul McGann is great, and Angels Take Manhatten
As a fan of Paul McGann (I've met him a couple of times) I can't think of anything better... :-D Keilly in Customer Care

... ok... in relation to my last post... not only Paul McGann... but Clare Kramer too... that's Glory from Buffy!!! :-)…
Paul McGann as Percy Toplis was my first real love.
Here's a clean high res of the Paul McGann artwork on the 50th Anniversary Box Set, featuring a spaceship I modelled. ht…
Yes I did just spot a doctor on the underground (Paul McGann) :)
Death in Blackpool, - Extra Eighth Doctor adventure stars Paul McGann and Sheridan Smith.
My Doctor is Peter Davison. The best Doctor is Paul McGann (yes he is, shut up). Best companion is Ace. Capaldi was magnificent.
In 1982 Tom Baker stood down as Doctor Who to be replaced by Peter Davidson, after two short years Peter Davidson was replaced by Colin Baker (as I am certain every knows Colin is no relation of Tom's). There were many comments at the time about 'The Doctor getting younger'. So in their infinite wisdom (or lack of wisdom) the BBC decided to have an older Doctor and in 1987 Sylvester McCoy became the new Doctor and (no offense to Mr McCoy) but the BBC's choice killed the franchise. In 1996 the BBC attempted to resurrect Doctor Who with what was to be honest a pretty awful film (again this time no offence to Paul McGann). Eventually in 2005 we were blessed by the all new Doctor in the form of Christopher Eccleston, who was fantastic but unfortunately only signed up for 1 season and refused to have anything more to it. Mr Eccleston was followed by David Tennant and then Matt Smith, both of whom were great. But once again there were comments about 'the Doctor getting younger'. Is history repeating itself? Hav ...
I thought he looked a tiny bit like Paul McGann!
Buuut Tom I have 8 audios of Paul McGann to listen to.
My love of Doctor Who (Please read) - Doctor Who was fantastic last night, everyone was on top form, Strax, Vastra, Jenny, Clara and of course The Doctor now played by the awesome actor that is Peter Capaldi. I saw elements of classic Doctors in him, but he still makes The Doctor his own! The reference to The Girl in The Fireplace was a pretty easy guess for me from the beginning, but then again I have been an involved Whovian for 10/11 years. I've watched all the Doctors, William Hartnell, Patrick Troughton, Jon Pertwee, Tom Baker, Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy, Paul McGann, Christopher Eccleston, David Tennant and Matt Smith and now a new era has begun. Each and every Doctor is wonderful in their own way, with their own little trademarks. After nearly 51 years, Doctor Who is still as incredible as ever, I can't wait to see what they have in store for us! Plus the extended universe of Doctor Who, e.g; spin offs, comics, fanfics, fan film series are awesome. My dream is to star in a fan film ...
This is Paul McGann dressed as the 8th Doctor. I love the 8th Doctor, he's so handsome. Paul McGann is one of my top 5 actor to play the Doctor, along with Tom Baker, Peter Davison, David Tennant and Matt Smith
Wow :D I've seen Paul a few times but never actually talked to him! One of my followers is a HUGE McGann fan!!
is a lot of ppls 1st or 2nds transition. My 1st Doctor was Paul McGann - How many are like me? Like 10?
The '90s film suckt. I watched 4 Paul McGann. it ruined me for Who. Til I found out about the reboot w/Eccleston. I was in love.
Tom Baker maybe my Doctor, but Paul McGann has my 💜💜
Paul McGann. I caught the '96 movie when it aired. He was a great Doctor. I may have actually cried when Night of the... hit.
I loved how Peter Capaldi just started out with a funny character like Paul McGann's 8th doctor after regeneration
Why did you skip over the 8th Doctor Paul Mcgann in the intro?
Why don't we ever hear more of the 8th doctor, Paul McGann? Wil Wheaton skipped him earlier describing Sylvester then Eccleston
That sounds familiar. My husband said the same thing in 1996 for Paul McGann. Since then, I've taken the day off! ;>
Was it just me or did that androidish guy in Dr Who look like Paul Mcgann
premiere! hey in your "all the doctors" list you forgot Colin Baker, Peter Davison & Paul McGann
You forgot to mention Colin Baker, Peter Davidson and Paul Mcgann. Are you a Who fan or what lol
The 1996 TV Movie starring Paul McGann was based in America but actually shot in Canada 101 Facts!
The flub of forgetting Paul McGann has made this pre-show irrelevant.
I will never get over the War Doctor thing when Paul McGann is just brilliant.
you should mention Paul MCGANN. He was the 8th doctor! Unfair.
You forgot Paul McGann from the TV Movie of Doctor Who in 1995. Paul was in a minisode before The Day of the Doctor!
Was there no mention of the 8th Doctor (Paul McGann) in the pre-show?
no mention of Paul McGann's 8th Doctor?
 border=
and I love Eight. Paul McGann is dreamy.
So I guess Paul McGann only exists in our minds. O.o
Sorry, I meant the 8th Doctor. There was no mention of Paul McGann, was there?
Did Chris Hardwicke miss listing Paul McGann in the early Doctors?
Best place to get good Colin Baker and Paul McGann. :)
I like to test my friends' patience and email them lots of gifs of paul mcgann at strange hours in the morning
yeah better than Matt Smyth,Paul McGann, Christopher Eccleston... mix of jon pertwee, Tom Baker and David Tennant?
Still need more Paul McGann as Eight episodes, alright,
Spent bedtime showing the girl clips of the Fourth Doctor on youtube. She said it looked 'very old'. She also liked Paul McGann's Doctor.
Paul McGann was really good in the audiobooks, shame about the movie though, he's one of my favourite actors.
this is ENTIRELY wrong. it's paul mcgann.
Right I'm off to listen to Big Finish audios of Paul Mcgann
Capaldi good but you didn't wow me like Paul Mcgann did and that was in 7 minutes
The Doctor hasn't felt this Doctorish in a while, feels like Paul McGann's take.
Peter Capaldi: Supremely awesome and - because someone's gotta say it - the hottest Doctor since Paul McGann:

Mechanical dude looks like a cross between Cameron and Paul McGann.
"The power of telly is surprising. If you're in a six-part..".
Ummm...in no particular order other than DW chronology, Paul McGann, Christopher Eccleston & David Tennant.
My fellow Whovian Bronies:: Who is best Doctor? For me, it'll always be Patrick Troughton, though Paul McGann...
Yeah... John Hurt's Doctor had similar - Paul McGann regenerated into a young John Hurt. The Time War went on for bloody ever.
Paul McGann has admitted he’d like to see actor Charles Dance take on the role of the Master -
I forget these pictures...therefore I post it only now ^^ This sphere belongs to Paul McGann who plays Durian (in the brilliant audio The Minister of Chance ) and the 8th doctor. The Minister of Chance and Big Finish audios are great sources of inspiration and good work ;)
Shouldn’t make too much difference. It was a webisode that brought back Paul McGann and introduced.. another doctor
yet the Paul McGann movie which is cannon, specifically states that a Time Lord has 13 lives.
OMG...I just found the full 1990s Doctor Who Paul McGann movie on youtube!
And Richard E. Grant is best known for starring in Withnail and I with Paul McGann (Doctor
"It's PAUL MCGANN!" Is the funniest thing ever... no really. I laughed for twenty minutes.
Meant to say before: Paul McGann! Always nice to see an Eighth Doctor fan :-)
They should do a Paul McGann Doctor Who Spin off as a Netflix original in conjunction with the BBC.With Lucie Miller. 12 episodes(3 BF ones)
Just read an article about Steven Moffat wanting to do more with online Doctor Who "minisodes", every comment said "more Paul McGann!"

Saw a tumblr post tag a Wings record with "Paul McGann" and that's an interesting lineup.
Hayley Atwell did a Doctor Who audio drama with 8th Doctor Paul McGann. So, Peggy's met the good Doctor, too! ;)
Big Finish? The Doctor Who audio dramas, said to be Paul McGann's best performances as the Eighth Doctor.
Something about Paul McGann's yelling just sends chills up my spine.
Maybe it's the costume, but Paul McGann looks kind of short.
This evening, it was pointed out to me that Paul McGann's Eighth Doctor bears an odd resemblance to a younger...
where was it? I heard the one in Monroeville in September will have paul mcgann
Paul McGann was in this? the Doctor Paul Mcgann? The Doc and Lockdown are in the same movie? This is gonna be one of them 6Deg of sep movies
THATS HARD. I love classic so William Hartnell, Colin Baker, and Paul McGann. But then David Tennant.
After seeing the doctor who movie although the movie was ok at best, Paul McGann was very good as the doctor. Wish he had his own run
Don't get me wrong, I love a good salvia, but I need to see Paul McGann in a handknit
I don't know, did you see him in hamlet? 8th doctor as in Paul McGann or did you mean eccley?
I miss Paul McGann. He was so lovely. I hope he does come to Norway one day like he said he wanted to.
The only Doctor Who fans I know outside of the internet don't consider Paul McGann canon.
Paul Mcgann may be my new favorite Doctor
Paul McGann's TARDIS was kind of spectacular
I believe I mentioned this to Paul McGann.
Watching the Doctor Who movie with Paul McGann. I love
the stranger , a must for any serious paul Mcgann fan. It's on amazon. I highly recommend it
This girl is comparing meeting Paul McGann and seeing Capaldi and Jenna to meeting Craig Bellamy and Peter Andre
Something like that. Either way, I had a good laugh. That was a good night, that was, having champagne with Paul McGann.
After seeing Paul McGann at ComiCon I've rewatched the 1996 Dr Who film and have to say he is a very good doctor and the script let him down
Paul McGann knows what I'm talking' 'bout.
If anyone is planning on watching the 1989 Paul McGann/Rebecca DeMornay 'Lahndahn Trading Floor' film Dealers, don't.
Why do I have so many screen shots of Paul mcgann's face from the doctor who movie in my phones photo album?
ALSO, W&I is one of the most depressing/upsetting movies I've ever seen but young Paul McGann is exquisite to behold.
Photo: oodwhovian: That picture of Paul McGann really spoke to me.
"What I love the most about classic doctor group shots is that they’re always this group of funny old men and then suddenly BAM PAUL MCGANN"

My nose is slighty blocked and consequently my breathing now sounds exactly like the interior of Paul McGann's TARDIS.
We have a wonderful podcast. We interview Paul McGann and Daphne Ashbrook. The 8th Doctor and his Companion.
"Whatever it is you're planning... I'm in." - Paul McGann (
I know how you feel. I feel that way about Paul McGann as my first Doctor. On a related note, Christian Bale is my batman
Ok it's safe to say somewhere within the last month I have somehow gotten slightly obsessed with Paul Mcgann
whilst I am the embodiment of wingdings in human form and spam you with Paul Mcgann photos
lol my friend met Paul mcgann as well is he nice
we have loads more... But depends on location. Yep... Met Paul McGann and everyone from Willy wonka lol
I might just spam my newsfeed with photos of Paul McGann now. You don't mind, right?
Liking the new DVD artwork for the re-releases of the RTD era Doctor Who series though it's jarring to see the Jon Pertwee/Paul McGann logo.
I am positively thrilled that loving Paul McGann seems to be the new hating Paul McGann.
Also that Paul McGann follows me. That makes me very happy
and that we're close personal friends with Paul McGann.
Just read an article about online episodes. Can this be a thing? I need more Paul McGann.
 border=
The answer to that, O Faithful Followers of the Pittsburgh Comicon, is that we are to have the 8th Doctor, Paul McGann as …
Interesting. Is Moffat hinting that more online Paul McGann adventures could be in the pipeline? I do hope so!.
Big Finish's weekly Eighth Doctor series with Paul McGann and Sheridan Smith as Lucie Miller
Withnail & I has ruined everything else I've seen Paul McGann in, but in a good way.
seriously favorite part of the 50th anniversary special was seeing Paul McGann again
Oh, & Paul McGann is in it, almost unrecognizable.
I actually want to see more Paul Mcgann Doctor adventures
There is no earthly reason why the BBC can't do a Paul McGann series that takes place before the Time War.
Paul Mcgann as the brilliant Eighth Doctor .
I added a video to a playlist Doctor Who- Paul McGann- Title Sequence (1996)
Never been the biggest fan of August, but this year it's Paul McGann month on my Dr Who calendar. Well saved, August.
this I'd why no one remembers Paul McGann
It's currently Paul McGann month for me. So that makes August both Paul McGann and Sophie Alfred month.
And as July becomes august I turn Sylvester McCoy to Paul mcgann on my Dr. Who calendar
Paul McGann, the last 'classic' Doctor, is the regeneration for August. Definitely charismatic he was…

Wednesday at work there was a Paul McGann lookalike. Thursday there was a guy in a brown and blue pinstripe suit. So today...
I love the Doctor radio dramas with Paul McGann. --
I find the part where Paul McGann kissing to be distracting but it doesn't ruin the movie.
. No. Not with Paul McGann. Just let it go, you're never going to meet him.
Paul McGann is on telly, his voice is so soothing.
// Paul McGann definitely should do more Doctor Who.
Paul McGann was wasted. Would've loved to seen more of him.
Trailer debut for BoJack Horseman, Netflix's new animated series featuring Will Arnett, Alison Brie and Aaron Paul
Colin Baker and Paul McGann probably the best answers here.
Me (dressed as the Eleventh Doctor) with Paul McGann and the Eighth Doctor's TARDIS.
Am still waiting for that Paul McGann Doctor Who series ;-)
It's a shame Paul McGann had such a terrible cliche script to work with, I thought he made a great Doctor and deserved more.
As I'm sure you've been told a few times, the Paul McGann TV movie is 90 minutes long. Then you add Night Of The Doctor.
Peter Cushing is missing. Doesn't he count? Paul McGann only did a movie too.
poor Paul McGann. He should have gotten a lot more time than that. I thought he made a great Doctor
.the mini story night of the doctor with Paul McGann & John Hurt?
To finish out that list: Colin Baker, Chris Eccelston, Paul McGann and Sylvester McCoy
Photoset: Minister of Chance: AKA… Paul McGann’s hair does what it wants, so best recognize.
What should I draw on these postcards? I need your suggestions or they will all be of Paul McGann frolicking with kittens.
The snake on his costume is a lovely ironic link to the 1996 TV Super Movie starring Paul McGann. :-)
And in the late 80's, it could've been Paul McGann and Richard E. Grant.
