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?
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 :-)

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

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"

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.
