Paul McGann to return as Doctor Who?

As the 60th anniversary of Doctor Who rapidly approaches, the Whoniverse is purportedly about to expand with the adventures of the Eighth Doctor, played by Paul McGann (Withnail and I), if rumours of a new live-action spin-off series are to be believed.

Returning series showrunner Russell T Davies (It's A Sin) has spoken of his desire to emulate the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) and Star Wars spin-offs on Disney+.

A source told The Mirror: “Russell likes the idea of bringing back McGann with his own set of episodes in the TARDIS. Disney are on board as they want more original content and want to fully exploit the franchise as they know how big it could become.”

McGann most recently reprised the role of the titular time lord in The Power of the Doctor.

The Star Beast, the first of three 60th anniversary specials starring David Tennant (Doctor Who) and Catherine Tate (Donna Noble), will be broadcast on BBC One, BBC iPlayer and Disney+ outside the UK and Ireland on 25th November.

Would you like to see Paul McGann starring in his own series as the Eighth Doctor? Let me know in the comments below.
