    New Movie imminent? Views: 2970
     Thursday, May 28 2009 @ 07:27 PM EDT
    I think with the popularity of DW in England, it probably will happen but I could be wrong.

    And Louis, thanks for the link to your review. Yeah, you hit upoon oher reasons for me to literally HATE that movie and I put all that aside to focus on the incredibly poor story telling of the movie itself and it's faulty internal logic.

    A movie just isn't necessary right now. That, and I wouldn't sacrifice an entire 14 episode season just to have one 2-hour movie.

    Nor would I want another person playing the role, as it would likely just screw things up. Or would involve so much background setup as to be nothing more than 'origin' film that accomplishes very little - one of the problems with the 1996 movie.

    Silvanthalas, I agree 100 percent but aren't we just getting that now? I mean, I've ranted enough about it but we don't have a season right now, we have "special" movie type things and yeah we have the same old same old Doctor, but is that a good thing? And IMO things are getting screwed up now.

    I'd have to say not true; whilst the film itself isn't exactly my favourite piece of Who, it gave us Paul McGann as the 8th Doctor.

    I do agree that I love Paul McGann and there are some parts of that movie that are just very fun, very brilliant (INCLUDING the kisses, I love em") and Paul is great as the Doctor. But the story just goes and goes...back to the TARDIS and stays there for the "climax". I admit when I first watched this, I was on the edge of my seat but that could have been more from the anxiety of what they were going to do to my ex-favorite show (yeah it ceased being my favorite around either the Time Adric Died or the Time The Sixth Doctor meet the Second or something like that)...where were they taking it? Little did I know, even before it aired, it was NOT going to go to a series...

    and I'm glad for that. Had that gone to the series they were planning we would have had a talking TARDIS, the Doc's mentor or father BORUSA part of the TARDIS, and remakes of the old classics including THE GUNFIGHTERS (which I liked the original! YES I DID!), GENESIS, and others including Cybermen pirates! WTF?

    Anyway Paul deserved a series of DW but not the one they were planning. IMO of course. IMHO

    Oh, I love McGann as the Doctor too, but it left a lot of people who were not familiar with DW going 'huh' when the lead actor changed halfway through the film.

    RTD made the smart choice in not giving us a regeneration to start off the new series, as much as we wanted to see it.

    And when I say it could screw things up to have Tennant in a movie, it would be while Smith is doing the series, and you're basically undercutting Smith at that point. Along these lines, as much as I want a multi-Doctor story, it wouldn't be good to do it in Smith's first series, because he needs the chance to play the role without having to compete with another Doctor.

    How about, instead of Tennant, maybe a Time War movie with McGann regenerating into Eccleston at the end? There could be an intro by Tennant or even Matt Smith with visuals of the Doctors past. (Like in the Next Doctor) and maybe a v.o to get the non-fan caught up in some sort of expedient way, but that way it could be produced apart from the series with a completely different cast and crew.

    Just a thought, more a pipe dream than anything else I'm sure!

    NO. I think the Time War is an awful idea for a story. As a mythic background/backdrop to create a damanged 9th Doctor, yeah but as a story...nope, not for me, thank you. Again it is just IMO so those who think differntly can feel free to do so. But if they do a movie, I would hope it could capture the feel of time travel and not a time war that would have to throw at people Dalek Sek, Davros, the worlds destroyed by this including the Nestene World, and one or two Doctors, the Nightmare Child or whatever the heck that is, and god remembers what else or what else RTD will add to it in the last two specials, which might just be about that. It would be a mess.
