Doctor Who: Harvest of Time (movie adaptation)

by Timie-Lemmens | created - 2 months ago | updated - 1 month ago | Public

My castlist for a movie adaptation of the Doctor Who novel Harvest of Time.

My idea for this movie is unique in the fact that it relies on motion capture to bring the original 70's cast back to life in their original form.

Note: This story mentions a scene where tons of incarnations of The Master are seen, so as only a limited amount of actors have played the role on TV and audio, I'm throwing in some fun fancasting.
