DOCTOR WHO - PAUL McGANN would love to return

"I'm a Doctor, although probably not the one you were expecting."
Paul McGann has been chatting about his brief return to the world of Doctor Who in last year's fantastic mini-sode The Night Of The Doctor, and he confirmed that if he was asked again to return to the role his answer would be "yes"

Speaking at the Cardiff Film and Comic Con he said:
"If the same thing were to happen again and Moffat were to say 'Would you come back and do it and I'll write it?' Why wouldn't I want to do it? If it's going to be that quality, why wouldn't you want to do it?"
It was a huge, but pleasant, shock to us all when the Eighth Doctor appeared again last November, and it sounds like Paul McGann was as surprised as anyone to be back.
"It was a quick decision," he explained. "Stephen Moffat got in touch and said 'If I were to write it, would you do it?' I asked could I think about it and he said 'Think about it now… because we want to do it next week.' I had such a quick decision to make and I'm glad, because sometimes when you do things quickly, it's better. I felt when I arrived in Cardiff that [Moffat] had probably written it the day before. That was the only gap he had, on that Sunday, because they were trying to finish the big 50th. We arrived and it was next to the set of the 50th and [the actors] had all left. They'd had the party the night before and they'd all just left. We arrived the next day and shot the mini-episode."
So that's likely where he had his 'moment'...

Filmed in just one day, The Night Of The Doctor achieved 2.5 million views in just one week. Fans clearly wanted McGann back and many thought a spin-off show of Eighth Doctor adventures should be made. Would McGann take the lead in that, or maybe an American produced series?
"There's always all kinds of rumours. 'Doctor Who' is like a rumour mill, isn't it? 'Yea, McGann is gonna do this, Matt is gonna do that, there's going to be a spin-off, blah blah blah'. Of course it's all b****cks because it's Moffat who decides what they're going to do next. And of course, now you've got a new Doctor in Peter Capaldi - I think it's only fair that he gets a decent run on his own without any distractions so he gets his feet under the table."
Which sounds fair enough.

What did you think of 'Night of the Doctor'? Would you like to see Paul McGann back in the TARDIS? Maybe opposite Peter Capaldi in a multi Doctor special?
