Doctor Who – The Night of the Doctor

Steven Moffat didn’t just toss longtime fans a cookie – he gave us the whole damn cookie jar.

There are several things we can take away from the appearance of “The Night of the Doctor“.  First, that there are apparently people at the Beeb who can keep a secret after all.  Second, that it’s no longer safe to dismiss these mini-episodes as fun but dispensable trifles.  And third, one of the most painful questions in Doctor Who – as in life – as to ponder on what might have been…

Don’t you dare click on the spoiler tag (or read the comments) until you’ve seen the mini-episode.  I mean it.

I’ll post pics later when available, but it would be impossible to do so without utterly spoiling the episode anyway so it’s just as well I don’t have them for now…

    They should have done more with Paul McGann. He is a great doctor. Perhaps once Capaldi gets his doctor established they might sone day have a "The 2 Doctors" type of episode?

  2. There's always his many radio drama appearances. There have actually been rumors of a spinoff series featuring McGann on a different timeline, which may have some traction given that there's no spinoff airing at the moment. I'm all over it, but the idea of two Doctors on the air at the same time with a regular series is a bit of a wild one.

    He is the Doctor we deserve but not the one we need right now.
