Quick Review: Not Terrible.,
By A Customer
This review is from: Doctor Who: The Movie [VHS]  (VHS Tape)
OK, a quick fair summary I think.
McGann's Doctor: Good, very good. Involving, interesting, strong and plenty of other positive adjectives.
Plot: Superficial and somewhat pointless. No time for any moral lessons to be learnt, either incidentally or otherwise. Just Good vs Bad.
Style: Good, very good. Ignoring the terrible changes made to the Tardis (they shouldn't have gone that far), the result is a very flashy-looking and asthectically-pleasing show.
Ultimately?: Somewhat vacuous but not without redemption. There are far worse eighties Dr Who adventures. This seems to come in for more criticism than is deserved, coming from what I suspect is some partial anti-American British claim to the series. As an Englishman myself, I can feel a slight twang of resentment.
There seems no reason as to why 1 series at least wasn't borne from this.
