having seen the original TV series about an eccentric time traveler (his
time machine resembles a London phone booth) I cannot share British Dr
Who fans' disgust with the full length motion pictures made
featuring their hero.
However, having devoured countless Dr Who novelizations
as a kid I must say that this tacky, simple and heartless affair doesn't
quite live up to expectations.
Hey, maybe I do know what those
British fans are on about . . .
