The Doctor, an alien time traveller from the planet Gallifrey, is transporting the remains of his nemesis, the Master back to their homeworld. However the Master is not as dead as the Doctor thinks. The Master's essence escapes and sabotages the TARDIS, the Doctor's time machine causing it to crash land in San Franscisco on December 30th 1999. The Doctor requires a beryllium atomic clock to repair the TARDIS, but is shot as he leaves it. Taken to hospital, the Doctor's seventh regeneration is triggered by a surgeon, confused by his alien physiology, while the Master takes over a paramedic's body.

The original UK television broadcast was shown before the 9pm watershed and contained some edits for violence due to the BBFC, including the Seventh Doctor's death on the operating table was trimmed down quite a bit including his final scream, and the gunning down of Chang Lee's friends was cut out, making it appear as if they suddenly vanished. When BBC America cablecast the eighth Doctor Who 50th Anniversary special "The Doctors Revisited" on August 31, 2013, they showed this watered down version. See more »

It was on the planet Skaro that my old enemy the Master was finally put on trial. They say he listened calmly as his list of evil crimes was read, and sentence passed. Then he made his last, and I thought, somewhat curious request. He demanded that I, the Doctor, a rival Time Lord, should take his remains back to our home planet, Gallifrey. It was a request they should never have granted...

Rather than credit the creator of "Doctor Who" (1963), Sydney Newman, a title card reads: "Based upon the television series broadcast by the BBC." Ron Grainer, composer of the film's theme music, and Delia Derbyshire, designer of the TARDIS sound effect, do not receive screen credit. See more »
As I said- you know, my love of British actors? Well, this time, Paul McGan, or Paul Mgann, or whatever his name is, can be referred to as one of my favorites- even though, I found out, his origin is American. I have more taste for full-bred English actors. Any way, if you want a great movie, and if you prefer corny lover-boy endings, this is the movie of your dreams. Any way, it gets sort of muddled in the end, so whats the point? Grace falls in love, the doctor has a date with Grace at Payless shoe source, grace and Chang lee, or Bruce lee, or Lee Bruce- I could never get it right- die, and the eye of harmony- well, to put it shortly, it has quite a few sub-plots. But you know what? It is the most entertaining of the 1995 year- well, British at least.
