does somebody want to go move to a random city with me and live in a cute apartment and just go to coffee shops a lot and blog and go on city adventures and forget about everything else and we can worry about money when we get there okay let’s just go who’s up for it
This is the Eighth Doctor. He is frequently ignored by most of the Whovians for being the Doctor in the lame 1996 movie (which really isn’t as lame as people say). He is also ignored because that movie is his only televised appearance in the Whoniverse (which is a crime).
Paul McGann, who plays Eight, however, has been playing the character for fifteen years, longer than any other Nu-Who Doctor, and appearing in more episodes than any other Nu-Who Doctor.
I strongly recommend everyone check out Eight’s audio dramas at Big Finish Productions. His characterization, alongside that of his unique companions (a chameleon alien from an alternate universe? When was the last time you saw the Doctor travel with one of those?), is fantastic and well-paced. Most of his stories are much more exciting than Nu-Who. Eight is also featured in a series entitled “Eight Doctor Adventures,” which is a book series, published during the wilderness years of Doctor Who, after it was on hiatus in 1989, as well as a series of audio dramas, which are brilliant (if you didn’t feel anything at the end of To The Death (the last of the EDA audios), then you may have no soul).
I’m probably not selling Eight or giving him justice through this. Eight is a fantastic Doctor that should be respected and recognized by the Whoniverse. Eight has become my favorite Doctor (Eleven used to be, until the Ponds left).
The Name of the Doctor has rubbed Eight fans the wrong way, but for good reason. Because Name of the Doctor seems to be an attempt to “erase” Paul McGann from the role, now is the perfect time for Eight to be recognized.
Give Eight a chance.
its also a bonus that hes really attractive
