HAPPY BIRTHDAY PAUL MCGANN!
Not only is today special because 'The Night of the Doctor', the Doctor Who: The Day of the Doctor prequel was released, but it’s also the birthday of Paul McGann, who played the eighth Doctor.
Doctor Who audio drama producers Big Finish have announced three new seasons ofDark Eyes, continuing the adventures of the Eighth Doctor and Molly.
Available to pre-order now, Dark Eyes 2, 3 and 4 will be released over the course of a year, from February 2014 to February 2015, and will star Paul McGann as the Doctor and Ruth Bradley as Molly O’Sullivan.
Following on from last year’s hugely popular four-episode Dark Eyes boxset, Dark Eyes2 continues the story with the return of companion Molly O’Sullivan, the ever-malevolent Daleks and a host of other characters new and old, both helping and hindering the Doctor.
Dark Eyes can be preordered from the Big Finish website now.
My first Doctor
I remember watching Doctor Ocho with my Daddicles way back in Nineteen hundred and ninety-six.
Pages Torn From Time
Sketches of the Eighth Doctor, whom I love so ridiculously much! Also featuring Charley (Charlotte Pollard), the companion he refused to give up even though the laws of time and Time Lords demanded it.
I adore these two. The world needs more Eight and Charley! More Eighth Doctor, period. He is one of the sweetest, most adorable, enthusiastic, charismatic and passionate Doctors ever, though the pendulum can too easily swing to a darker, colder nature full of snark and weary of battle. And need I mention he is also played by PAUL MCGANN! *___*
If you need more convincing of his adorableness, here is an audio snippit of him rummaging through his bottomless pockets in search of sunglasses for Charley: LISTEN NOW
I highly, highly recommend the Big Finish audio dramas. They are utterly amazing and addictive, and are keeping me sane through work and the wait for the 50th. And there’s no better time than now to start listening! Big Finish has discounted Eight’s first season to only $3 an episode!! I recommend starting at the beginning with “Storm Warning" ^__^
EIGHT NEEDS MORE LOVE, PEOPLE! Give him a chance and he’ll run off with your heart. And drink all your tea.

“Was that supposed to frighten me? I’ve seen entire species destroyed, civilizations left in ruins. I’ve witnessed solar systems vanish in the twinkling of an eye. I’ve seen things that would freeze your blood… So don’t threaten me, don’t ever threaten me.”
—The Doctor, Phobos
Created because even after listening to another one of the Eighth Doctor’s audio shows, I couldn’t get that line (Or that FACE) out of my head. And Eight just doesn’t get enough love.
