Ok..i'm sure everyone here has seen the Doctor Who movie that was here...wasn't it american made? Because I can't imagine the normal writers for the series making such a HORRIBLE and utterly TERRIBLE version of Doctor Who.


On a sidenote...Doctor Who has been around forever...why no feature length motion pictues? THE BIG SCREEN. :)

Unfortunatly yes it was made for the American market which is why it's the only one to feature Paul McGann on screen, although he has done a number of Audio productions and Radio versions.

There have been 2 Doctor Who Movies, for the Big Screen, both starring Peter Cushing as a William Hartnell Doctor both of them were about the Daleks
This is the IMDb piece on Dr Who and the Daleks http://uk.imdb.com/title/tt0059126/

yes it was american, but there was alot of input from British writers. Ultimately, the product that aired on FOX was American made.

There were two movies, both siple remakes of some First Doctor storylines (The Dalek Invasion of Earth being one) but they were different takes on the idea (the Doctor was an old man from Earth who built a time machine himself, he was not a Time Lord). The 1996 movie was american made yes, and it left a lot to be desired, but there is a massive difference to American and British TV.

As for no canonical movie, well maybe Doctor Who doesnt want ruin its good name. With several exceptions the majority of Sci-fi, show to movie transfers end with the fans being heavily disapointed, and I for one am glad of no movies other than the Peter Cushing ones and the Paul McGann one.

here here. I think that he has much better writing in the Big Finish audio series. Great stuff


PS: Do you think he might come back for a multiple doc ep?

Doubtful, RTD really just wants to move forwards with the new series, we might see CE again, and once he regenerates into the 11th Doctor (hopefully not until at least S4/30) DT may one day return, but pre 2005 doctors, unlikely.

No but sometimes he does meet a previous incarnation of himself, there have been at least 3 occations The Three Doctors which was William Hartnell, Patrick Toughton and Jon Pertween, The Five Doctors, which was the first 5 (Apart from William Hartnell obviously, but the actor who replaced him was good) and the Two Doctors which was Patrick Troughton and Colin Baker and also Jamie appeard too
