The Doctor: The note on the Professor's kitchen door said he'd be back by teatime; what time is it?
Romana II: I haven't a clue.
The Doctor: A Timelord who doesn't know the time... how remiss of you, Madam President.
--"Shada", Big Finish Doctor Who [Eighth Doctor] Audio Drama, 2003--
Rough sketch of Paul McGann as the Eighth Doctor.
I'll be honest here: I started out in Doctor Who with the newer Doctors.
I them all.
Even so, when I first saw the Eighth Doctor, I instantly understood how people could say, " is my Doctor."
I also instantly knew he was, as they say, my Doctor.
He appeared on-screen only once. I wanted more, so I hunted down as many of his audio adventures as I could. They're such a treat, but I still thought how nice it'd be to actually see him again at least one more time in the role.
This simple, rough sketch was made earlier this year but since a) today's Paul McGann's birthday and b) they've released The Night of the Doctor, I thought I'd put it up here to celebrate.
