Did You Know?

Was envisaged as a pilot - an alternative way to bring back Doctor Who, with Richard E. Grant as the Ninth Doctor (though no mention is made of his predecessors). When a new TV series was announced in 2003 (for airing 2005), this plan was abandoned and the new series featured a definitive Ninth Doctor. Plans for a DVD release of this animated feature were subsequently cancelled, as were plans for follow-up adventures featuring Grant as The Doctor.See more »

Another Treat For Fans, 23 January 2004
Author: Morpheus2k3 from Honolulu/Hollywood

The BBCi has recently webcast another animated adventure featuring our favorite Time Lord. This one, the Scream of the Shalka, had all the earmarks of those classic 3rd Doctor (Jon Pertwee) tales: Earth in mortal danger, military seeking the Doctor's somewhat coerced help, and, after a fashion, The Master. Just like Paul McGann's BBCi webcast of The Shada, this one captured my imagination. Richard E. Grant steps into the role as the new Doctor. (9th, perhaps?) Plopped down on Earth to help battle a new race of nasties - the Shalka - bent on taking over the world, the Doctor picks up a cool new companion and does his bit for humankind. Although not as deeply bound to Who lore as The Shada, the Scream of the Shalka was nonetheless good story telling. Plus, on my short list of candidates for the 9th Doctor, Richard E. Grant!
