Paul McGann’s Doctor Who audition tape teaser

In the mid 1990s, rights to make new Doctor Who were acquired by American producer Philip Segal. Commissioning a new series “Bible” – one that saw the Doctor and his half-brother the Master, searching for their long-lost father Ulysses – Segal began auditioning potential Doctors. Although much of this Bible was dispensed with in the eventual 1996 movie, Paul McGann auditioned using scripts based on these ideas.

The video is taken from Doctor Who: The Movie DVD release.
