Good story, ruined by being too american,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Doctor Who - The Movie  [DVD]  (DVD)
I had high hopes for this joint BBC/Fox production as it brought back the Doctor after a gap of 7yrs. Although Paul McCann was simply fantastic as a modern Doctor and obviously enjoyed the role, but some awful acting from Eric Roberts let down on what was a good storyline, not brilliant - but good. Also, the doctor being half human and kissing, my word not things accepted by true Doctor Who fans, this was obviously to appeal to our American cousins. What did redeem it was the special effects and the modern looking Tardis and as mentioned earlier McGann's acting, also good to Sly McCoy get a final look in too. To summarise, worth getting, but don't be hoping for a Dr Who classic.
