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. Taken from Doctor Who: The Movie DVD release.

The Other Eighth Doctor?:
After Doctor Who left television screens in 1989, many possible routes were investigated for the show's return. In 1991, Doctor Who Magazine reported on claims that an independent production company had made pilots for a new series, starring an actor called David Burton as the eighth incarnation of the Doctor... With contributions from current and former DWM editors Tom Spilsbury and Gary Russell, and David Burton himself, this clip is taken from Dr Forever! Lost in the Dark Dimension, which can be seen in full on Doctor Who: Inferno Special Edition DVD release
