There's Such A Thing As Too Much Publicity
3 May 2005 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

DOCTOR WHO: A NEW DIMENSION was produced and broadcast to tie in with the new series of DOCTOR WHO , a show that is a British television legend . The publicity afforded to this revolutionary reinvention of a TV classic was unprecedented . For several weeks before transmission we saw trailers galore , Billboards all over London advertised the return , Christopher Eccleston was interviewed on programmes as diverse as BLUE PETER , TONIGHT WITH JONATHAN ROSS and the BBC SIX O'CLOCK NEWS . Unfortunately perhaps DOCTOR WHO : A NEW DIMENSION was a programme too far

On the surface it's just another documentary publicising the show and to be honest this is still a good idea for introducing people new to the show . If you were born in the late 1980s you unlike millions of people will have missed on on the Doctor's adventures as a child and executive producer Russell T Davies wants the show to appeal mainly to children . Fair enough and we get the usual interviews from former companions and clips from the old show along with new clips and it's the new clips I had a serious problem with - They reveal far too much . The Doctor gets attacked by an Autons hand in Rose's flat . " So what ? " you say . Well this was broadcast less than two hours before the episode and gives away the shock of seeing the Doctor attacked by an Autons hand . Likewise the Dalek extermination effect is impressive shown out of context but is even more impressive shown in context so once again the surprise is ruined

In many ways watching DOCTOR WHO : A NEW DIMENSION is a precursor to the mistake the BBC would later make in their " Next Episode " trailers and that is that too much information is revealed . Watching the classic series you'll remember the director and writer would construct the episode so that the monster wouldn't be revealed early on thereby keeping the audience in a state of suspense . Unfortunately this documentary spoiled some of the surprises of the new series as does the " Next Episode " trailer which fans are growing to detest
