It's been 17 years since I wrote and co-produced Doctor Who the movie for Fox TV/Universal/BBC ... Paul McGann's doctor had his only TV outing on that film, and when the show was revived in 2005 (even though my Doctor was accepted into the cannon of Doctors) his death and regeneration were never really dealt with. The eighth doctor lived on in audio books and novels. I have always felt like the Cinderella of Doctor Who writers. But this year is the 50th anniversary of the Doctor and the gently witty character I gave voice to for McGann has developed a loving following. I was SO happy to see them bring him back to life today on the big screen, so proud of Paul ,and happy that Moffat did this ... It's fantastic to see McGann's Doctor again and I wish I could be writing for him once again.
