He's back ... and it's about time!
The newly-regenerated Doctor takes on the Master on the turn of the millennium, 31 December 1999.
Truly horrible and embarrassing.
It's not as good as the current TV series but Paul McGann is a VERY decent Doctor.
Sylvester McCoy is killed off cheaply within the first few minutes.
The Master is a jello snake now.
The Doctor is also apparently half human now.
Not to be taken too seriously.
Eight really should get more screentime than just one film. He's quite brilliant.
The plot is fairly easy to follow even if you don't know much about the old or new series. (It was shot as a potential pilot for a new series, which was not picked up)
It did feel a little Americanized but managed to get away with it for the most part. I believe it also broke some canon which has since been ignored (Eye of Harmony in the TARDIS stuff).
Paul McGann - Great
Sylvester McCoy - Wasted
Eric Roberts - Decent enough,
The Rest - Grace was boring, the Chinese guy was boring and the writing wasn't great, nor was the plot. Shame, as McGann gave an interesting performance, and given a longer time in the role, could have really been a good Doctor
Paul McGann is good. He's just the victim of godawful writing.
Apparently filmed on VHS with shitty CGI, a terrible villain and an eye on the American market. Fails miserably but Mcgann aint a bad doc.
God damn it, this movie is bad.
Only good part is Paul McGann's Doctor.
'Now would you stand aside before I shoot myself?'
Whilst visually fun (surprisingly, the special effects still manage to kinda hold up) and exciting with a story that almost makes absolute sense, the Doctor Who movie does have some problems when it comes to pace and referencing past events (some things that occur may anger and frustrate members of the fanbase).
Eric Roberts hams it up as if he's Porky Pig as The Master whilst Paul McGann makes for a fun Doctor, but he ultimately does not reach the heights of his predecessor, the lovely Sylvester McCoy, of whom is in the beginning of the film, but unfortunately and inevitably leaves us for the sake of the film.
Paul McGann makes a pretty decent Doctor, but the rest of the film as a whole is just completely terrible.
Far too Americanised but fun to see a time travel movie from '96 showing the millennium New Years party.
Increíblemente mala. ¡El Doctor muere por una cirugía negligente! Es como un Highlander sin lo guapo ni lo fuerte del wey.
