Eighth Doctor in Doctor Who, 1996, 2013
A hugely successful television and film actor, Paul McGann played the Eighth incarnation of Doctor Who in the 1996 television film - a pilot that, sadly, was never taken to series. However that wasn’t the end … Paul has since reprised the role in an ongoing series of audio plays by Big Finish.
Also, as part of Doctor Who’s 50th Anniversary celebrations, Paul starred in the mini-episode The Night of the Doctor, where his Doctor finally regenerates - 17 years after his first television appearance! Then, in November 2013 he also briefly appeared in the comedy homage The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot.
A lot for Ace interviewer Sophie Aldred to discuss with Paul when Myth Makers finally caught up with him at Island Con, held on the Isle of Wight, in 2018.
