Interesting Prequel
20 November 2013 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

This is a prequel to the much anticipated 50th anniversary special of DOCTOR WHO and the striking thing is how much potential the 8th Doctor played by Paul McGann might have had if the 1996 American TVM had gone o a full series . Brooding with all the charisma of Lord Byron himself the 8th Doctor is the perfect antidote to the zany shouty wouty eleventh Doctor and the mockney geezer tenth Doctor . For a brief moment in time the audience are treated to a what could have been glimpse of the eighth Doctor

The story itself is relatively unimportant just setting up the premise of the anniversary special while dropping hints that it ties in with The Time WAR between the Daleks and The Time Lords which ties in with the resurrection of the show away back in 2005 . It also contains a nod to the classic series by introducing The Sisterhood Of Karn who made a sole appearance in the 1976 story The Brain Of Morbuis

In short this is a disposable prequel to the big event on the 23rd of November . If you don't see The Night Of The Doctor it probably won't affect your opinion of The Day Of The Doctor but this mini episode was both intriguing and appreciated
