More than a bit off-topic, but Peter Cushing played Doctor Who in a movie as well, and he's never mentioned. But Paul McGann is. Anybody know why that is?

Edit -- Cushing played Doctor Who is two movies, not one.

He isn't a real Doctor. Within the Doctor Who Universe the movies with Peter Cushing have been explained as being movies about The Doctor made in the Doctor Who Universe.

As sag noted, this article has Mcganns last name misspelled.

There have been quite a few non-Canon Doctors over the years, but Cushing is unique in being the only one whose character name is "Dr Who" and is the only one who is a human.

AARU Productions saw the popularity of the TV show and quickly threw out 2 movies, in 2 successive years starring Cushing, and I believe the scripts were based on 2 Dalek Serials from the TV show. Dr Who is an eccentric inventor who invents a time machine called the Tardis (as opposed to the TARDIS in the TV show). He travels with his 2 grand daughters. The TV show Doctor had a Grand-daughter called Susan too, but I really don't understand that side of things, because I don't know if he really did have any family or not.

Paul McGann played the Eighth Doctor in the TV Movie that was actually supposed to act as a Pilot for a rebooted show, but poor ratings in the US made this a failed attempt. The Seventh Doctor, Sylvester McCoy, was in the TV movie and the regeneration is shown. McGann also appeared in a minisode webcast that was a prequel to The Day of the Doctor, where you also see the War Doctor was an additional Doctor between McGann and Eccleston's Ninth Doctor.

I don't think this makes anything any clearer, but it was an attempt at least.
