So I'm just shy of 20 minutes in to the 1996 Doctor Who movie and I had forgotten just how bad this film is. Worst. Hospital. Ever! :smt011

Well, that's San Francisco for you. :smt102

I watch it and just try to ignore how bad an actor Eric Roberts is in it... the poor music score... and just bask in the awesomeness of Paul McGann as The Doctor.

It's hard to get by just how bad Grace Holloway is, especially as a "doctor," and how terrible the hospital she works for is.

Listen the movie itself isn't bad, it's just campy as hell.

Eric Roberts knows how to chew scenery like it's no one's business. :lol:

More than John Simm. :lol: The good news of the rumor of him coming back is that he plans on being a more serious minded. I suppose being time locked with a group of people with terminal constipation will dampen your campiness. :-D

I don't think so. I just watched it in pieces on YouTube. It's a pain in the ass but the entire movie is on there.

the movie was bad. mcgann's enthusiasm was great but the way everything around him was sculpted with crap didn't do the movie any favors.

I always liked how Tennant had two suits (blue & brown) and Smith's clothes have kept evolving - but take away Hurt's off screen aging and Davison's temporal jump in 'Time Crash', I'm hard pressed to come up with any physical changes to a Doctor besides McGann's hair from the 'Movie' to 'Night of the Doctor'.

Are there any?

Pertwee's hair got whiter as his run went along. Troughton had grey hair in The Five Doctors and The Two Doctors.
Colin Baker's hair got longer later in his run as well as putting on weight. McCoy's hair was also longer in the film.

I've long had a theory, one that other fans have also mentioned, that Time Lords barely age for hundreds of years and then will start to age slowly then at a human rate as they near the need to regenerate.

I like the older takes on the Master, he can be full on evil badass. I liked Simm but felt he went too cartoony with it.

We wont talk about Roberts at all. :lol:
