Starring Paul McGann and Ruth Bradley
‘I really hoped it would be a wonderful view... to look back from the end of everything... to see how things finally turned out.’
The Eighth Doctor (Paul McGann) is an enthusiastic figure who explores the universe for the sheer love of it: though always ready to tackle problems when they arise, he relies on brilliant improvisation rather than elaborate plans.
He is passionate, direct, sympathetic and emotionally accessible, yet this is balanced by occasional feelings of self-doubt and weariness of his endless battles against evil.
After the shocking end of The Eighth Doctor Adventures: To the Death, he's a man dealing with loss and hunting for new meaning in his life. He found some solace in the company of Molly O'Sullivan, a voluntary aid detachment First World War nurse, but where will his travels take him next, who will he meet, and what enemies will he be facing?
