He’s notoriously known for being the Doctor we never really knew, but eighth Doctor Paul McGann has admitted he wouldn’t pass up the opportunity to return to BBC’s Doctor Who every once in a while. The actor debuted as the Doctor in the 1996 Doctor Who movie; which was his only on-screen appearance as the Timelord until 2013’s mini-episode The Night of The Doctor.
Speaking in an interview with DigitalSpy, McGann confessed that he’s rather keen on the possibility of returning to the TARDIS on odd occasions: “I don’t mind doing a little bit every now and again and stealing all the glory! It’s quite fun. You’re coming in at the 89th minute and scoring the winning penalty – yeah, I’ll do that.”
He continued, joyously stating that he enjoyed his involvement with the show considerably: “Just on a personal level, if I ever had misgivings – just about being in Doctor Who in the first place, or the nature of it – they’ve long since gone. I really enjoy it. It’s a good family to be part of – and it’s still going places. It’s a lovely thing to be associated with.” Would you enjoying seeing the eighth incarnation return?
