3.0 out of 5 stars A not so bad mish-mash Oct. 24 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Okay, this is a film that is guaranteed to cause reactions with Doctor Who fans. First time, I saw it was horrified. But with a rewatch, I was not as horrified. From first to second impressions, Paul McGann makes an amazing Doctor. Eric Roberts, makes a bad Master. But now knowing some of the history of the evolution of the movie, it's not his fault.

For me, rewatching the movie, I started to see the attempt to "grow up" Doctor Who. Many people, at the time, were horrified with the Doctor and Grace. But that was something Doctor Who needed. Even in the first viewing, I loved that the Doctor had a kiss. There was a hint of romance. About time. My problem, which stays to this day, is the complete moving away of canon. The Doctor is not half-human. But all in all, I would not rate this film as bad as other Doctor Who fans have. There are some amazing stuff in here.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better Than You Would Expect It To Be Nov. 23 2012
By Trytek TOP 1000 REVIEWER
This movie represents the failed attempt to revive Doctor Who in the 1990s by an American TV Network. The fact that it was not picked up for a full series would suggest an unmitigated failiure. Not so. There's a lot to enjoy here, even if it doesn't all come together seamlessly.

First of all, Paul McGann makes an excellent eighth incarnation of the Doctor. His audio work for Big Finish further confirms this, but he finds his feet remarkably quickly and is totally believable in the part. It is also good to see Sylvester McCoy back in his former role as the seventh Doctor and his presence is a calming influence at the beginning of the film.

The TARDIS, too, looks amazing. The steam punk style a major advancement on the old BBC sets of the 60s to 80s, and lighting the way for the TARDIS designs of the 2005 renewed series.

Eric Roberts, sadly, doesn't quite convince as the Master, and the plot makes little to no sense, but as a piece of entertainment, and for the introduction of the McGann Doctor, this movie is well worth its place in the Doctor Who canon.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting movie from Dr. Who's darkest period July 24 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Having just finished the Series 1-7 boxset I was wanting more Dr. Who. In one of the special shorts, you see Paul McGann again as the Doctor and that got me wanting to finally see this.

It definitely had a different vibe to it. Mostly for the good, but sometimes bad - a few scenes felt very Hollywood-ish. I thought McGann would have made a great Doctor had this movie revived the series. But sadly that was not to be. If nothing else, the extras that chronicle the tortured journey this film took in getting made is worth the price alone.
