    As he might've looked . . . Views: 911
     Wednesday, August 22 2007 @ 02:16 AM EDT
    So I was watching an episode of Sea of Souls. Didn't really know that much about the series, except that it had been Phil Collinson's old haunt immediately prior to coming to Doctor Who. Well, it turned out that the episode I was watching wasn't from his era, so I was kinda bummed. But who should pop up in the show but Paul McGann, taking a rather villainous turn. And then, about halfway through the show, the main characters are closing in on his "lair", and McGann's character is shown to use a video entry system. Now, c'mon, take a look at this shot and tell me that the director (or set designer) wasn't giving a tiny little homage to the Eighth Doctor:

    It's just the slightest nod to how McGann might've looked in a traditional TARDIS, don'tcha think?

    Now that's just uncanny! If you had told me that was a close-up of McGann in the ol' Tardis, I would have completely believed you.

    And if my prayers are ever answered, we'll get to see another shot like this one someday.

    What's even cooler is his role. The plot's a bit of gobbledygook, but his performance is a delicate character study that makes you regret he's already done his turn as the Doctor. At just the single adventure, we were seriously robbed, people. The guy's just got the goods.

    For chrissakes Russel bring him back for an episode!

    Hmm, that screencap makes nice fodder for an enterprising PhotoShopper!

    hehe.

    i wonder if that happens to the other actors who have played the doctor.
