The outpouring of good feeling for Steven Moffat’s Doctor Who 50th Anniversary prequel webisode has been absolutely incredible (read our piece on why The Night Of The Doctor matters so much) and an inevitable petition has sprung up for a full-blown live action series.

Obviously, it’s doubtful how much of a difference online petitions make (especially when they’ve got iPlayer stats and over 2 million YouTube views to tot up), but at the time of writing it has 7,790 signatures and some really quite lovely comments from Doctor Who fans, so this is a good time to share your thoughts or just stand up and make your voice heard.

Sign the petition for Paul McGann to get a Doctor Who prequel series here, or spend the next 50 years wondering if perhaps your signature could have been the one that made the difference.

The Doctor Who 50th anniversary special will air on 23 November 2013. Pick up the Doctor Who Series 7 box set  on DVD for £34.50 or Blu-ray for £36.33 from Amazon.co.uk.
