Re: Paul McGann special year possible?

The trouble arises if the stop gap proves more popular than the current incumbant? What would have happened if Tennant went off to do Hamlet and while he was gone everyone loved McGann more? Plus to the majority of viewers you're effectively introducing McGann as a brand new Doctor, but then saying he's only going to be around for a few episodes before Tennant/Smith returns.

Doing prequels is fine if you don't have anywhere to take the characters on going forward, but Who has that, you just change Doctor.
