The US attempt to return Doctor Who to the airwaves after an anti-science fiction programmer took over at the BBC (not that Fox’s history with science fiction is the best, save for The Orville, which is now moving to Hulu exclusive) didn’t work out for various reasons. I actually really liked it–yes, even the “half-human” idea–but Fox’s commitment apparently wasn’t that good. However, in a recent interview with the Radio Times, Sylvester McCoy went over what he thought might have happened in his successor Paul McGann’s run as the Doctor and why he was willing to do it even though it meant his Doctor meeting his fate in the most pedestrian way he’s ever died.
