We kick off with some discussion of the latest 13th Doctor promo photo. Sure, it just shows Jodie Whittaker from the same shoot at a slightly different angle, but we still have several minutes' worth of thoughts. Then we officially talk about something other than the new series with a look at the 1996 TV movie, which has its heart(s) in the right place but is so, so misguided at all times. Both longtime admirer Alasdair and new viewer Allison agree Paul McGann shows a ton of potential as the 8th Doctor, but that's close to the only unqualified success of those 90 bonkers minutes. At least it's instructive in showing what "Rose" gets right in introducing the 9th Doctor and Doctor Who in general to viewers, even if the first adventure of the new series has its own bits of silliness. We also pepper in some thoughts on "The Night Of The Doctor," since this is Paul McGann week. Join us next time for the first part of our look at our favorite guest performances from the new series!
