Trivia

The original plan for Doctor Who (1963)'s 30th anniversary was a feature film called 'The Dark Dimension'. Written by fan scholar Adrian Rigelsford and directed by Graeme Harper, the story was that of the alteration of time by an evil creature possessing a scientist named Professor Hawkspur and altering time so that the Fourth Doctor would not have died and regenerated during Logopolis. In doing so, the creature created a "Dark Dimension". The Doctor had to revert back the timeline before he and his future incarnations were erased from time by the effect. Rik Mayall, Brian Blessed and David Bowie were considered to play the main villain, Hawkspur. It would have focused on an older Fourth Doctor, with cameos from the surviving Doctors, as well as Ace, The Brigadier and spin-off companion Bernice Summerfield. It would also have featured the Daleks and the Cybermen with redesigns. It was cancelled due to scheduling and budgetary concerns. A main factor was that negotiations for what became Doctor Who (1996) were underway. Also, Jon Pertwee, Peter Davison, 'Colin Baker' (I) and Sylvester McCoy were unhappy that the story mainly focused on Tom Baker, while they had mere cameos. See more »

Whirlwind two part skit!
20 October 2000 | by (LaGrange, Illinois) – See all my reviews

This story starts like a regular episode with the Rani in her TARDIS following the Doctor's TARDIS and generally up to no good ( she is trying to collect all the Doctor's selves to complete her menagerie), with a young travelling companion. The Rani has trapped the disembodied heads of the first two Doctors in a Time Tunnel (this must have looked very wild in the original 3-D transmission!). We then join the Seventh Doctor and Ace exiting the TARDIS in front of the Cutty Sark. Things then move very fast and get very confusing. The Rani apparently wants to capture one specimen of every living thing which will then allow her to have the power to control evolution (I gleaned much of this information from The Seventh Doctor Handbook as it's not really clear in the two part skit). Why many of the companions are needed instead of just one human, for instance, is not explained. However, this is still a ton of fun. This came out the year (1993) that the Doctor Who movie "The Dark Dimension" was to have been released and as a bonus this would have been the cherry on the cake. In reality, though, "The Dark Dimension" was cancelled and this was the consolation prize thrown at fans--quite a letdown in that context! It should be remembered, however, that this production was made for Children In Need and all actors donated their time and services free of charge. One wishes there was more screen time for each Doctor and interaction between them but time is literally of the essence here and even with the brevity of time on screen each shines as if they have never left the role (except Hartnell and Troughton of course who are just floating heads!). Many companions appear as well and one can only think of what could have been with more time. I mean the Sixth Doctor with the Brig as well as Susan and the Third Doctor and Victoia are just three examples. All of the meetings of Doctors and companions are fun but oh so brief. Towards the end tons of old monsters appear (a Tractator, Tetrap, Sea Devil, Zog from the stage play "Ultimate Adventure" among many others). The final resolution to this mystery is very confusing but it's still fun to see the Seventh Doctor, Leela and K9 together! One will miss the 3-D effects that this was originally filmed in and may become a bit dizzy with the rotating camera work but this is harmless Who fun. If you can find someone with a copy of this give it a view, if not for any other reason, to see the final official screen adventure of Jon Pertwee as the Doctor!
