It's like Christmas. It really is. And I wasn't expecting him and had a definite moment, of, "Wait, who's that... OMG THAT'S PAUL MCGANN!"

:D

That was a moment of pure delight for me; even though I've never accessed Big Finish or Virgin New Adventure stuff, I loved Eight from the movies, and from some top drawer fic over on Teaspoon, and even had I not, I knew we really, really needed to see him in some way connected to the 50th, especially given when and where the story is taking place. So, w00t!!1!

Also, the Sisterhood!

And I love the fact that Hurt!Doctor's reflection at the end is of a much younger Hurt, because it raises questions about how he aged, and how soon he aged. (Maybe we should call him War!Doctor? Even if the Doctor doesn't like to think of himself that way?)

He's called the War Doctor in the minisode credits...

I have some thinky thoughts at my journal and would love some feedback...

!!!!!!!!!

Paul McGann, this makes me infinitely happy. My heart was breaking for him though, as he was fighting the seeming inevitability of being dragged into the time war.

And is it bad to be slightly glad that Eight, who always has come across to me as the gentlest of the Doctor is obviously not the one that had to pull that final metaphorical switch at the end of the Time War

And how good was the way they showed the reaction of Cass - Time Lords and Daleks viewed in the same way by those stuck in the middle.

I don't have any Eight!Doctor Icons, so I give you PM as Lieutenant Bush (with bonus Archie) instead

Not in the least; because he also is shown to be the toughest Doctor, because he makes the decision he makes. Just ... alkadjlaksdjgaslkdjg

Yeah, I have to admit, I was flailing along like a flailing thing about this.

KEYBOARDSMASH voe[ish09w568u4yh!!!!!!

This is AMAZING. WAY beyond what I was expecting. I wasn't sure how much to get my hopes up for the 50th, but now they're way, way up!

Agreed. adsflkjasdflaskdjf is the only way to deal with how impressed I was the first time I watched it. And the second. And the third. The only reason I didn't KEYBOARD SMASH is because I needed the keyboard to FLAAAAAAIIILLLL and SQUEEEEEEE.

I'm efficient like that.

I AM SO EXCITED.

And yes, I do wish we had more Eight on TV (or mini-series, or TV movies that aren't awful, etc.). Because Paul McGann!!!
