From BBC America Press:
AMERICA celebrates the Eighth Doctor, Paul McGann, in a new special of Doctor Who: The Doctors Revisited. McGann (Luther) played the Eighth incarnation of the Doctor in the 1996 Doctor Who television movie, which was the first time the Doctor had returned to TV since the end of the original series in 1989. The special begins with lead writer and executive producer Steven Moffat, Eighth Doctor companions Daphne Ashbrook (Dr. Grace Holloway) and Yee Jee Tso (Chang Lee), among others, examining what made the Eighth Doctor unique and discuss a new take on the Doctor’s old enemy the Master.
The special is followed by Doctor Who: The TV Movie. The Doctor is on his way home to Gallifrey with the remains of his arch-nemesis, the Master. Forced off course, the TARDIS arrives in
San Francisco on New Year’s Eve 1999, where the Doctor faces a race against time to prevent the destruction of the Earth.
Doctor Who: The Doctors Revisited – The Eighth Doctor premieres tonight at 8:00pm ET/PT.
