Special prequel mini ep ahead of the 50th anniversary special The Day Of The Doctor; The Night Of The Doctor is set after the TV Movie and before Rose, the first episode from the new era, at the height of the Time War. It sees the return of Paul McGann as the Eighth Doctor, a return to the plant Karn (from Tom Baker's 1976 story The Brain of Morbius) and the regeneration of the Eighth into the hitherto unknown, unspoken of War Doctor incarnation, portrayed by John Hurt!
Of course, it had to be Karn that saw the birth of this mysterious incarnation - tying in brilliantly with 'The Morbius Doctors' Steven Moffat you genius!
Don't forget to vote in my polls for your favourite Doctor!
And that's one blog post squeeing about new Richard E Grant film and another squeeing about Paul McGann. I'm a happy Withnail fan :D
