Oh my god oh my god oh my god!

I gasped. I actually gasped.

Not at the Sisterhood of Karn. Though almost.

Paul McGann!

I’m glad Moffat found a way to work him in somehow. And he mentions lots of companions, which makes them canon now, and means the Eighth Doctor had lots of adventures we haven’t seen. Good.

Looks like some of us were wrong about who John Hurt’s character is. But Hurt looks much younger in that reflection:

Which suggests he’s been the War Doctor for a very long time.

Other thoughts:

How chilling to have someone reject the Doctor’s help, see him not as a wondrous savior but a menace and a monster. Barely distinguishable from a Dalek? Ouch.

“Man or woman”? Is Moffat mocking those of us who might have liked to see a woman as the Doctor? Is he’s saying he could have done it, but he didn’t? I think so.
