50 Years Of Doctor Who: August is Eighth Doctor Month

Doctor Who Celebrate 50 Years

After being cancelled in 1989, viewers were left wondering if we would ever see our beloved Time Lord again. One brief ray of hope appeared in 1996 with the airing of a television movie set in America and starring a brand new regeneration of The Doctor!

Stumbling out of the TARDIS into the middle of a shootout, the 7th Doctor was rushed to hospital, where he regenerated into the 8th Doctor as played by Paul McGann. He then, while suffering from amnesia and wearing a stolen Wild Bill Hickok costume, battled his arch nemesis The Master for the fate of Earth!

And let's forget all that half human nonsense.
