BBC America was brilliant to create these "Doctors Revisited" specials for the 50th anniversary of the show. The many American "Doctor Who" fans who had never met the first eight men to play the iconic character get another chance. This latest celebrates Paul McGann (above), who played the Eighth Doctor in the 1996 TV movie, seven years after the original series ended in 1989. "Doctor Who: The TV Movie" follows the half hour special.
Another Saturday premiere: "Who the (Bleep) Did I Marry?" 7 p.m. Investigation Discovery
