Oh, where do I begin? Steven Moffat is brilliant!
I knew that this 7 minute prequel to the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary on November 23, 2013 was coming. But I had no idea the Eighth Doctor would be the star. I think that Paul McGann looked absolutely amazing. And I believe that he would have done a spot on job in his own series or two. We will probably never seen the stories in between the Doctor Who “TV movie” to this mini-episode. But I am truly grateful to see that his incarnation of the heroic Time Lord actually go somewhere. His transformation is huge going from Victorian era clothing to this rather bad ass in the middle of a war look.
But there are so many more questions now. Did the elixir from the Sisterhood of Karn give the Doctor infinite regenerations? Is “War Doctor” John Hurt actually the Ninth Doctor? If so, David Tennant and Matt Smith are all bumped up as well.
I reeked out so much after seeing this.
