Re-visiting the TV Movie twenty years on
There are few Doctor Who stories whose stock has dropped as rapidly as the TV Movie. People and fans (even me!) seemed to really like it when it was first shown but as soon as it became obvious there would be no series as a result the production got the blame which seems unfair. The Movie is, in the end, an enjoyable but not classic sort of story. Had it been just the start of a new series it would no doubt be looked upon fondly as the `Robot` of the Paul McGann era. Two decades on and we now have a lot of modern Doctor Who to compare it with so it doesn't look as good as we might have thought.
