The Eighth Doctor
Paul McGann (1996- )

We were treated to a taste of the return of Doctor Who in the Spring/Summer of 1996, with a made for TV Doctor Who movie, in which Paul McGann took on the role of the Doctor, and had Eric Roberts portraying a ghoulishly existing Master. The movie was received with mixed reactions, and talks are still up in the air as to what may come of it, many still hope it will lead into a return of the series, or even just more TV movies, but as the Doctor said "Time will tell, it always does..."

[Restore Doctor Who]

* I suppose you were wondering what all these little *'s were along the way, hmm? Well these are denoting the missing episodes.
That's right, in a vile and unthinkable act, the BBC a long time ago started pitching out their old copies of the early Doctor Who episodes. Sadly much of the works by William Hartnell, and Patrick Troughton were lost, but the search goes on for those old episodes, there has been hope, as quite a few have been found....Here in detail is a list of those episodes that are among the missing, expanding upon the *'s up top.

  • Marco Polo : Episodes 1 - 7
  • The Reign of Terror : Episodes 4 - 5
  • The Crusades : Episodes 1, 2, 4
  • Galaxy 4 : Episodes 1 - 4
  • Mission to the Unknown : Episode 1
  • The Myth Makers : Episodes 1 - 4
  • The Dalek's Master Plan : Episodes 1 - 4, 6 - 9, 11 - 12
  • The Massacre : Episodes 1 - 4
  • The Celestial Toymaker : Episodes 1 - 3
  • The Savages : Episodes 1 - 4
  • The Smugglers : Episodes 1 - 4

  • The Invasion : Episodes 1, 4
  • The Space Pirates : Episodes 1, 3 - 6

  • Invasion of the Dinosaurs : Episode 1
    This Jon Pertwee story was accidentaly erased when it was mistaken for the 1968 Troughton episode The Invasion, making it the only break in the Third Doctor's era. For overseas release the story has been re-edited into a five part serial rather than the original six. Fortunately in a search for the older, missing episodes, Episode 1 was found along with several others. With current technology and trends towards colourizing the black and white stories of the Third Doctor, hopefully we will see this episode again.
    Note the colourization process is not as cheesy at a Ted Turner special.
  • Shada : Episodes 1 - 6
    This Tom Baker story didn't make it to air, since it was never completed. Filmed in 1979, a strike of some sort at the BBC caused this one to be interrupted and never completed. It is however available on video! A few years ago, BBC Video compoiled all available filmed and recorded sequences, linking them together with Tom Baker's naration. It's not a bad tale, and even though entire episodes are missing from the sequence, it still holds together.
