A Discussion of the Doctor Who TV Movie
Welcome to our final installment of this year’s Classic Who series! KC and Sue discuss the 1996 Doctor Who TV Movie simply titled “Doctor Who” and starring Paul McGann as the Eighth Doctor.
We talk about why American content creators should not be trusted with a 30+ year old BBC property, the overuse of racial stereotypes and gang/gun violence, the Seventh Doctor’s traumatic end, and the somewhat odd characteristics of the Eighth Doctor like kissing random women (which stuck around) and telling people bits from their future (which didn’t). We also discuss the Doctor’s apparently questionable genetic makeup, and again ask the age-old question: Why does the Master have superpowers?
Series Eight, of course, premieres on August 23 (2014), and we’ll be back with “normal” episode of Your Moment of Who in early-to-mid September.
