Movie Reviews

For Dr. Who fanatics, not casual fans

(3 out of 5 stars)

"This is NOT the fantastic official documentary that came out on video a few years ago called "More Than Thirty Years in the TARDIS." That is the best documentary ever produced on the longest running sci-fi series of all time, Doctor Who. This DVD is a 1993/1994 British documentary not affiliated with the BBC, hence the title "The Doctors" rather than "Doctor Who." Prior to this release, it was a VHS tape available mainly through fan clubs or sci-fi publications. Yes, it is not bad, a low-budget labor of love in most places and it does feature interviews with Doctors 2, 5, 6, and 7 and a host of others. Still, there are NO clips from the show (apart from grainy home movie footage from the set) and very few stills. If you LOVE Doctor Who, then you already know what this is and have probably already purchased it. If you are a casual fan, buy it only if you don't mind a lot of talking heads (albeit interesting talking heads) and want a few snippets of rare home movies from the Troughton and Pertwee years. Overall, I would wait for the DVD release of the BBC-produced "More Than 30 Years in the TARDIS." I have heard that it's on its way!!"
The worst DVD release ever?

"Grainy, distorted images still haunt my memories of attempting to sit through this DVD... It sickens the stomach so much, I could not finish it. This is bad. So bad I was afraid my DVD player was not working properly. I inserted a different DVD... *WHEW,* it was just this worthless disc.The amazing thing is, I have the VHS version of this, and upon viewing the DVD I noticed that the field of vision is actually smaller on the DVD than on the video. The top inch of a person's head is suddenly cut off, where on the VHS version, it is not. And the VHS is nowhere as bad as this...something is DEFINITELY wrong with this product!You could purchase this title to put it in your DVD collection, but I would only do so if it cost less than 5 US dollars and you are the rabid Doctor Who fan. SERIOUSLY. THIS PRODUCT NEEDS A DISCLAIMER!!! If monkeys were not involved in the production of this "DVD," then it was only because they could not be budgeted in. AVOID AT ALL COSTS AND DEMAND BETTER PRODUCT IN THE FUTURE."
I've seen better quality film in a bathtub!!!

"The quality on this DVD looks like one of those multi-generation VHS dubs you find bootlegged at a convention! This is probably the WORST quality DVD I've ever seen! The 8mm home movie footage actually sometimes looks BETTER than the interviews shot back in 1993! Simply HORRIBLE!!!"
Worse than VHS -- green doctors!

"This is all material previously released on other VHS tapes. Most of the DVD is decidedly green-tinted. My VHS of copies of the interviews are clearly better overall in picture quality and color balance. I am an avid collector and this tape is not necessary if you've bought the other tapes, such as Longleat '83 and The Stranger episodes with the Doctors interviews. I don't recommend this DVD for anybody because if you're a fan, you already have the interviews, probably in better quality, and if you're new to DW, you'll be lost, totally lost."
