Tardis Off TV - Movies!

Get the popcorn in - we're talking movies!

Peter Cushing was Doctor Who in two movies, Doctor Who And The Daleks and Daleks: Invasion Earth 2150AD.

Cushing was most famous for being in horror films about Dracula and Frankenstein so playing a hero like Doctor Who was a real change for him.

The films were based on TV stories and a 3rd film based on another TV story, The Chase, was planned but never made.

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.

There's a short animated movie available online, featuring one of the Doctor's companions from the books and audios - Bernice Summerfield. Check out the latest issue of BeanoMAX to find out where you can download it for free.

    They've changed the illustrations! Now Fred looks like even more like a slacker than he used to be, and not in a good way.

    Doctor Who. Probably the best television show ever made.

    But Matt Smith SUCKS! He's just not beleivable enough.

    He's just trying to fill in David Tennant's shoes and actually get people to like him, but I don't think he'll even get that far.
