A could have been Doctor.. Glad he was not.
This episode was the one and only TV appearance of Paul McGann's 8th Doctor. It was supposed to be the pilot for the new Doctor Who Series but was executed so badly that it took another decade for the franchise to recover.Was this review helpful?

The worst part was the death of the 7th Doctor (Sylvester McCoy), it was a serious let down. The 7th Doctor is shot down in a random drive buy shooting in the first five minutes. If you're familiar with the earlier Doctors and the current series then this IS a Tasha Yar moment.
What is good about this episode is that it is cannon. This is the 8th Doctor for better or worse, it sets up events prior to the "Time War", and this is most likely the Doctor that causes the events in the Time War often mentioned in the modern series. This episode also includes the return of the "Master"
to the Doctor Who franchise.
