One-time Doctor Who star Paul McGann, who blew us all away with that awesome pre-50th-anniversary short, might not be done with the franchise after all.
The actor was a recent guest at the Cambridge Union Society, and apparently he told those in attendance that heâs involved in a sequel to fellow former Doctor Peter Davisonâs The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot, which was an absolutely hilarious low-budget short that found former Who stars campaigning to join the 50th-anniversary special.Â
It was a blast, and weâre psyched to hear theyâre putting another episode together. Hereâs hoping weâll get some more details soon.
Along with that bombshell, McGann also chimed in on the long-running debate over the potential for an actress to eventually step into the TARDIS. It turns out McGann is in favor of a female Doctor, and even recommended Who showrunner Steven Moffat give Tilda Swinton and Diana Quick a call about the gig.
McGann noted the BBC âmissed a trickâ when they didnât go for a female Doctor this time around, and urged the crowd to imagine the skill an actress of the caliber mentioned above could bring to âone of the greatest characters ever written.â We like Peter Capaldi as much as the next fan, but yeah, we wouldâve been curious to see the network mix things up a bit more.
Would you like to eventually see a Five(ish) Doctors sequel, or a female Doctor?
