The Doctor regenerates on the way to Icon 31, rare Paul McGann appearance in New York

Paul McGann and Daphne Ashbrook
An unexpected change in the filming schedule for The Hobbit  means that Sylvester McCoy will no longer be able to attend for I-CON 31. But Icon quickly announced that Paul McGann will be joining them instead.

This is a very rare appearance by the actor that portrays the Eighth Doctor on screen and in the Big Finish audio adventures. He joins previously annouced guest and co-star Daphne Ashbrook.

There is a video message on YouTube explaining the change:

Doctor Who - The Movie: Special Edition DVD Coming to North America February 2011

Doctor Who 1996 region 1 DVD

As we previously announced, the Doctor Who 1996 Movie will finally be released as a region 1 DVD in North America. It has long been available on region 2 (I had my copy for some time now), it has been tied up in release rights issues between the studios involved (BBC, Fox, Universal) for a region 1 DVD release since the movie first aired.

We were pleased to report that it would finally be coming to region 1 with the recent revisiting of the DVD (a new re-release edition). Up until now, we didn't have a release date other than 2011 for this 8th Doctor adventure starring Paul McGann and Daphne Ashbrook. Now according to tvshowsondvd.com, BBC and Warner Home Video have announced that it will be released on February 8th as a 2-disc set titled, 'Doctor Who - The Movie: Special Edition.'

It coincides with the release of another 2-disc set 3rd Doctor story, 'The Mutants' starring Jon Pertwee as the Doctor and Katy Manning as Jo Grant on DVD.

It's Paul McGann's World. We're just living in it.

You know how the Gallifreyan Irregluars just dig on Mr. McGann. If you're lucky enough to be near Bristol, check this out:

Not only do you get to hear McGann reading extracts from Shackleton's diary, but you get to see a Silent Film. It will be good for you and you will thank me later. And here's an image from a cool new website called, well, Eff Yeah Paul McGann. You're geeky; you'll find it if you want to.

Paul McGann in "Luther"

Not sure if you've seen it, but this is kind of crazy and out of control. Idris Elba is phenomenal, as we know, but McGann's character is fantastic too and it's the best he's been in years.  Definitely worth your time:
