I was blown away by how enjoyable this is! Colin Baker really does steal the show. He is just amazing.
All of the cast are great. The storyline would actually have made a good Doctor Who story, had it still been around in the early 90s.
It's obviously made on a small budget, but do not let that put you off. It's a very well written, well acted piece of sci-fi drama. Some of the reviews online are misleading. They would have you believe this was the worst story ever made. It's not. It's wonderful.
If you're a classic Doctor Who fan you'll probably like this, just for the thrill of having four Doctors all together. You'll also like this if you're a Colin Baker fan, he plays the leading role and comes across as a very naturally lovable character. We're also treated to a scene with Colin Baker naked in the shower which is rather brief and pointless but well worth leaving in the film! I won't go into explaining the plot as the other reviews have already done so, but suffice to say Colin Baker is outstanding in this. Peter Davison also gives a good performance.
Some Doctor Who fans may be worried about watching the love scenes between the 6th Doctor and his companion but they are quite mild and tastefully done.
If you've already seen the film this is well worth buying even if it's just for the extras. There are a lot of extra features on the DVD such as a 'making of', 'out-takes', 'deleted scenes', 'trailers' and interviews. The out-takes are quite funny, Sylvester and Colin are hilarious and it was nice to see the 'making of' behind the scenes clips. Plenty more Colin Baker nudity is included in the out-takes, which should please his fans.
All in all this is a good film with a reasonable script and an excellent cast. No big special effects, just an enjoyable watch with a great cast of actors.
But we do get to see four of the original Doctor Who stars on screen as rather different characters (including a weatherman, an investigative TV broadcaster and an eco-activist) who end up working together to expose the truth to the world. McCoy is unconvincing, Colin Baker is miscast but Jon Pertwee and Peter Davison do well considering some of the hammy lines that they are given and the slightly studenty quality of this low-budget production. It would be a shame that Baker and McCoy are given the lion's share of the screen time were it not for the rarity value (and unintentional comedy value) of seeing these actors attempting to play rather gritty roles with love interests! And don't get me started on Colin Baker's sex scene with Nicola Bryant...
Hardcore Doctor Who fans will be in for a treat.
