Doctor Who TV movie: I love the idea of the movie, and what the trailers promised back in the day. I love the look of it, and the lighting of it. I love the set design for the TARDIS interior and exterior. And Paul McGann was (and still is!) a terrific Doctor. However, I don't think they got the emphasis right, so it takes a lot of time to gain momentum, and leaves McGann with such a short time to establish himself to any degree. I coped fine with the fact that it didn't work out as a backdoor pilot for a renewed show, because it still was continued on in a way with the Eighth Doctor novels series (followed and supplimented years later by audiodramas that Paul McGann participated in). Seeing Withnail and I also helps get a general vibe of his voice and movement. One major problem with the TV movie is that it doesn't do the silliness correctly, there's a ponderous lack of conviction; and it doesn't blend well when Eric Roberts absolutely viscous Master is around (it doesn't help that Roberts was a disappointing Master, as a general thing). The other major problem is that the elements that drive the story shift around, so it's confusing problematic, logic wise.
I like the TV movie. I happily paid money for it's long overdue release on DVD, which I've ached for, for the longest time. However, I am very cognizant of it's many flaws.
I only saw Dr. Who and the Daleks movie once, and it's okay. I have Daleks--Invasion Earth 25XX (I can never remember the stupid year) on DVD because it was one of my first ever memories of DW, ever (even though it's kind of a side-step to the main continuity). There's great energy to the thing, in a 60's psychedelic kind of way. It defies it's post apocalyptic setting with the Daleks in charge. People die, the situation is dark and grim, but the tone of the movie is not bleak; it's very optomistic about fighting to take back Earth.
The real oddity is seeing more DW topics than we need, on Paeter's Spirit Blade forum. He doesn't watch Doctor Who!
These DW topics could probably be consolidated into an all-purpose DW topic, otherwise, it's gonna feel cluttered here in the SB forums.
