The Eighth Doctor

The Eighth Doctor, portrayed by Paul McGann (1996)

The Eighth Doctor was unique amongst incarnations of the Doctor in that he was technically dead both when he regenerated from the Seventh Doctor and when he regenerated into the War Doctor (Revived Series).

He was inherently a happy adventurer, falling in love with companion Grace Holloway. So strong was his affection for humans, that he even claimed to be half-human — though sources dispute if this was actually the case.
