With only two televised stories as of 2014, the Eighth Doctor had the shortest TV run of any other Doctor. His debut was in 1996 as part of a joint BBC/Fox Network backdoor pilot. It was not received well, although Paul McGann received praise for his portrayal of the Doctor. Paul McGann returned as part of Doctor Who’s 50th anniversary celebration with a mini-episode that showed his Doctor’s final days.
