Now I'm hoping the tabloids have it right. The Sun are printing all of the above, plus this extra morsel. And The Sun reported today that one of the specials would be a "flashback" tale that would feature the return of Paul McGann to the role of the Doctor, which he played on screen only once, in 1996. "Fans loved Paul?s Doctor and feel he was never given the proper chance to shine. Reference is often made to the Time War which wiped out the Time Lords and this will give them a taste of that," The Sun's source revealed. According to the story, flashback scenes will see him battered from the Time War and shorn of the long hair he had in the 1996 TV film. Yes. I know. It's The Sun. Still, I'd gladly sit through the return of Donna, The Master, The Doctor's Daughter, the Slitheen and the witches from K-9 and Company if it means a Time War flashback starring McGann.
