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.

 Interesting to see where they would have taken the series. It seems a bit to soap opera-ish to me though. I really wish they would have let McGann keep that curly mop of hair though instead of that wig he had to endure.
