I just wish he had come back to do the regeneration. It was jarring to see Eccleston in "Rose" so suddenly.
A regeneration scene was slapped together at the last minute, like literally filmed a few weeks before it aired. Though it was just Eccleston in a gray wig and dressed in Hurt's costume. They were going to add it into the episode, but the director was less than impressed at the piss-poor job done on the regeneration effect as a result of rushed CGI so it was left out. The scene is available as an easter egg on the DVD.
Didn't that contribute to Eccleston leaving? He thought it was a brilliant piece of work.

My favorite part of the hurt serials is his final regeneration words

"Oh no. Not again!"

Indeed, Eccleston was disappointed the scene was removed over something like quality of the visual effects feeling his performance in the scene more than made up for anything lacking in the CG.

Personally I think it's a good idea they left the scene out, as the regeneration effect really is terrible. But I can understand Eccleston's passionate attitude since he really delivers a powerful performance and if you didn't know any better you'd think it was Hurt. BBC should have come to some sort of compromise, leave the scene in there but cut the actual regeneration itself. Ah well, missed opportunities are so easy to see in hindsight.

That's weird, they are in Canada. Or is that because it was funded by CBC while at that time American channels pretended like Doctor Who didn't exist? The telemovie sure left its scars...

Thats likely... the US has enthusiastically received the 2005 and on serials, but the earlier ones just dont seem to be too popular here. Probably the veiled references to US policies of the day...

Yeah, I guess there was no subtlety to the Time Lords conquering Androzani because they thought there were weapons of mass destruction.

Veiled? Come on. It was pretty blatant. The "Shrubya" serial especially.

Actually, while Shrubya might draw on Bush parallels due to it being topical I always thought it was a commentary on a broad array of political ideas. Really deep and intellectual stuff going on in that story.

Getting HR Giger to design the Hurt Era console room was a stroke of genius on the BBC's part.

Do you think the hooded woman in the penultimate serial could be Clara, retroactively speaking? I mean, she couldn't have been a Watcher, and she seemed awfully inquisitive, not to mention fast-talking...

He took some getting used to and was definitely channeling Eric Roberts (even copied the "I like to dress for the occasion" line) but I don't think he's the worst Master. He certainly ain't no Roger Delgado, but then who is?

Oh oh oh, who remembers the episode when Michael Jackson actually appeared on the show as himself? Then the Hurt Doctor accidently knocked his nose off. That's why for the rest of the episode, you could easily see PVA glue on Jacksons nose.
