based on another TV story, The Chase, was planned but never
There have been lots of attempts to make a Doctor Who movie
since then but none have made it onto the big screen. Doctor Who
Meets Scratchman, Doctor Who's Greatest Adventure, Doctor Who And
The Krikkitmen and The Jewels of Time were some of the stories that
were written but didn't get made.
James Bond star Pierce Brosnan was favourite to play the Doctor
in the film, The Jewels of Time, if it had been made.
A movie was made for American TV in 1996, starring Paul McGann
as the Doctor. It counts as part of the TV series now.

of the Doctor's companions from the books and audios - Bernice
Summerfield. Check out the latest issue of BeanoMAX to find out
