Doctor Who – The Doctors Revisited
Sunday, 14.00, Watch
Odd to think of the huge publicity the Paul McGann film got at the time, we know the 2005 revival was big news but in the middle of X Files fever it was all over the shop, with acres of merchandise and plenty of breathless Radio Times features. Heaven knows what would have happened had it caught on in America and we’d got a whole series of it, but despite a decent rating for it in Britain it didn’t do bugger all in the States, not helped by stupid decisions like doing the regeneration in it which immediately confused every casual viewer. Still, fair play to McGann, who clearly loves the fact he was Doctor Who and still enthusiastically joins in with all the audio adventures and conventions, and here’s another chance to see that oddity in full.
