Paul McGann Performs The 12th Doctor’s Anti-War SpeechDecember 16th, 2015
One thing that makes me sad is that we never got the 8th Doctor adventures that we deserved, but that’s life. At least Paul McGann got a few minutes of screen time during the time war. Well, here we get a bit more of the 8th Doctor. Granted, this isn’t in his outfit and on our TV screens, starring in one of his own episodes, but it’s pretty cool.
A fan at a Megacon, Orlando Q&A with Paul McGann hands him the 12th Doctor’s speech from the recent The Zygon Inversion and asked him to read it as the Eighth Doctor. And he did!
McGann’s tone is quieter than Capaldi’s, and this is obviously unrehearsed, but he does a fantastic job when you consider that. So this is kind of like seeing more of McGann in the role of The Night of the Doctor. It’s fun to watch this and imagine him in the actual episode. I really hope we get more of this Doctor on screen somehow.
