NEXT STOP EVERYWHERE 020: "Doctor Who: The Movie" is Up!
"These shoes! They fit perfectly! Yesssss..."
You've waited quite a while for this, but my good friend and co-host Jesse Jackson and I are FINALLY back with another episode of Next Stop Everywhere: The Doctor Who Podcast! And this time, we reverse the polarity back to the 1996 Paul McGann classic, "Doctor Who: The Movie"!
Exploring this Fox TV movie pilot that bridged the gap between the classic 1963-89 series and the modern 2005-present series, Jesse and I discuss things like Jesse appreciating the TV Movie far more the second time around, Fox's decision not to turn the pilot into a full series, Doctor Who as a BBC embarrassment, Paul McGann as the Eighth Doctor, the mini-episode "The Night of the Doctor," the gothic steampunk console room, the return of Sylvester McCoy as the Seventh Doctor, the TV Movie as canon, remembering the excitement of the TV Movie, Star Trek: The Motion Picture, my personal experience of almost dying before the TV Movie aired, Eric Roberts as The Fourth Master, Daleks with helium voices, post-regenerative amnesia, Giacomo Puccini's "Un Bel Di Vedremo" from the opera Madame Butterfly, the positively blasphemous act of the Doctor kissing his companion, Jesse's Reversing of Reverse the Polarity segment, and more!
