This is a short interview shot last year, it has Paul Mcgann talking about his time on DW and if he would like to return to the role. When you watch this, you can clearly see why he was chosen for The Doctor in the first place.
He has such a mysterious quality and he really has the nature of an old man trapped inside a young man's body. He is still The Doctor.

He also reveals some incredible revelations about why he didn't re-appear in the role when the show was revived back in 2005, a lot of people still think that he refused it. But it turns out that Russell T Davies never got into contact with him (not even to do a regeneration scene), Paul has never met or spoken to Russell. That must have been annoying for him (as he points out) to hear that a new Doctor had been cast without him being approached first.

Anyhow, check out the interview, heres hoping that Steven Moffatt ressurects the Eighth Doctor sometime soon.
