Dirty WHOers Podcast - Episode 20

Like busses. You don't get any for ages then loads turn up at once.

This one was a long time coming, so the news might be a bit last month. BIG thanks to The Prof and Lightfoot for pulling in an emergency edit while Sputters was trying to earn some mortgage.

So, let's get this out of the way, it's our review of the TV Movie, a feature length first attempt to revive the franchise after it's woefully criminal cancellation in 1989. Intended as a 'back door pilot' for a new American-produced Doctor Who TV series, and introduced Paul (like butter) McGann as the 8th Doc in his only video appearance as our favorite Gallifreyan.

An obvious ratings success in the UK, the movie flopped big-time on US TV and eventually came to nothing. A major bone of contention (on many levels) with fans, this 85 minutes of contentious Who history always raises voices and temperatures.
