    Ok, I give up. I am so frustrated. Can anyone point me to a source, ANY source for the
    96 movie? I think I'll die of old age before it gets released on DVD.

    Copies can be seen on Ebay most of the time.

    You don't say where you are but these are usually region 2 U.K. Copies so you would have to do a conversion on them.

    Try this:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/Doctor-Who-The-Movie-DVD-2001-NEW-1996-MOVIE_W0QQitemZ260004085149QQihZ016QQcategoryZ60897QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

    It is also shown on cable from time to time

    __(censored out)__. If you want to tape it off of tv, the encore networks occaisionally show it as well. Having said that, my memories of the tv movie must have been filtered through rose colored glasses (get it, Rose...)because I didn't enjoy it at ALL when I watched it recently. It reminded me of trying to listen to music I liked over a decade ago when your tastes have changed quite a bit. It was a bit embarassing to me. Probably a more accurate analysis would be that we have seen so many good, mature, deep intellegent episodes of RTD's wonderful new series, and to go back ten years to the tv movie is taking a huge backward step.

    yeah I was pretty excited about it but when I finally saw it I didn't like it. I remember thinking it took itself way too seriously and was like - X-files meets CSI SVU or something. Sort of an all-round bummer for me.

    Unfortunatly watching the movie only reminds me that Paul McGann would have been a fantastic Doctor and that, come the revolution, we Who'vians need to round up every last person responsible for this abomination and stick the barstewards in a room with a Dalek and lock the door Twisted Evil

    Wow...I was really disappointed by the film. I thought that McGann would have been a better TV Doctor if he had only had a better script to work with. I think the Big Finish audios bear that out.

    Hey everyone... I don't mean to be a party-pooper here, but certain things need to be limited in the forums.

    The movie can be purchased for example on Amazon.co.uk here... for 14.99 and you view it on your computer (if you have DVD drive) using the VLC player (available in various platforms)... or if you have a multi-region DVD player you can watch it on that. It is Region 2, PAL video. Or purchased via eBay (as already suggested) or any other place that sells the DVD (or as already suggested, it can be seen on cable/satellite... lately it has shown up on the various channels by Starz).

    This way you will have a legal copy.

    Although I don't like to do it, I will have to do a little censoring on a few previous posts so that we don't have to worry stuff we don't want to have to worry about (if that makes any sense).

    I hope everyone understands. I realize we are all trying to help each other out here, which is great. I don't want to squander that spirit here...

    Thanks everyone. Smile

    (I hate being "big brother" - I loathe it!)

    Cheers,
    Louis

    Sorry... I had to add "__(censored out)__" to a few posts... just to avoid any possible hassles... not just for us, but for the author of the posting as well.

    I hate to be heavy-handed and rather not had to do it... I trust everyone understands.

    Hopefully one day the BBC or some other entity will offer a means of purchasing and downloading these things legitimately.

    Or at the very least I wish the DVD for this movie would made available for the US market (i.e. region 1, NTSC) some time soon... it's been 10 years already!

    Now I need to take a shower because I feel "dirty" for having to censor posts... I apologize once again for it. They were not that bad or detailed... but we just need to avoid it altogether here.

    Cheers,
    Louis

    No worries. Now I will forever be able to say, "Louis, you took the words right out of my mouth!" Smile

    I admit that I may reacted at a bit out of paranoia perhaps. It was in the wee hours of the morning (for me) and I was working with very little sleep from the night before. Someone brought it to my attention that perhaps things on the subject had gone a little too far in the forum thread... so I just decided to just steer it off-site now before it may had gone further.

    Not that the Gallifreyan Embassy is trying to tell people what they should or shouldn't do... You know what I mean. Better to play it safe than to be sorry later.

    There's always Google or other search engines for that sort of thing Wink

    I wish the situation was different. Thanks for understanding.

    Cheers,
    Louis

    That's ok. Now we all know that all we have to type in is "Do you have _(censored out)_>?" and we'll all know what we mean.

    To avoid any confusion, you can even throw in a "nudge, nudge...wink, wink...say no more".
