"Doctor Who: The Movie" starring Paul McGann

  • Feb 26, 2011 · 7:00 PM
  • Jeff Johannigman's House

"Doctor Who: The Movie" was a backdoor pilot for an Americanized version of Doctor Who, and introduced Paul McGann in his only appearance as the Doctor. It's a fascinating and unique interpretation of Doctor Who.

For more info on the movie, see The Wikipedia entry and the listing on Amazon.

We'll also hear a report from the folks who are going to the Gallifrey One convention the prior weekend.

Doors open at 7:00 p.m., the film rolls at 8:00. Please bring a snack to share. For those with allergies, note that there are three cats and a golden retriever that live here as well.

Also, if you can bring any folding chairs or camping chairs for all the guests, please do. Thanks!

    McGann would have made a great doctor. This was my first viewing of the 1996 movie.
    Great to see new faces of Whovians in our meetup group. Look forward to seeing y'all again in our continuing enjoyment of Doctor Who.

    Nice group! This was my first time seeing the 8th doctor. Thanks to Jeff for hosting!

    I had a great time! It was great seeing a full house for the Doctor.

    We packed the house last night with a very fun and friendly bunch of Who geeks. The McGann movie is, perhaps, best left as a curiosity. Not great Who by any stretch, but fascinating as an attempt to "Americanize" the good Doctor.

    I enjoyed it, especially as I first saw it on TV in 1996. Much prefer to watch any and all Doctor Who with fellow WHOvians.

    Great to hear about Gallifrey (though we were green with jealousy!). Met some great people & watched a fun movie. Thanks, Jeff! :)

    I have a couple of extra folding camp chairs that I will bring. If anyone needs a ride from north Austin area, I have space for 3. [masked], call or text.

    If you did RSVP and change your mind, please be sure to let us know, so folks on the waiting list can come. Also, please do bring chairs. I don't have 24 of my own.

    I have a bunch of DW eps that I copied from PBS in the 80s. Mostly Peter Davison with a few Tom Baker, I believe. Sadly, however, I no longer have a working VCR to watch them.

  • Eric K.

    We still use a VCR. Most of DW is still on VHS. :)

  • Bill

    I think I actually have a VCR in the closet.....

    February 23, 2011

  • Johann

    VCR? What's that? Like a primitive DVR?

    February 23, 2011

    I have a few cool 96 movie items I'll bring for show and tell - a rough cut review copy of the film (on VHS, if you've got a VCR (ha!)); and another review press pack, in a tardis tin. See you then!

    Saturday, we'll all have to drink a toast to our dear departed Brigadier, Nicholas Courtney. See http://tardisnewsroom.blogspot.com/2011/02/brigadier-nicholas-courtney-has-died.html
