(1996 TV Movie)

Alternate Versions

The version broadcast and released on video by the BBC in 1996 had the following cuts (totalling 1 min 6 secs):
  • The caption "Based on the original series broadcast by the BBC" is removed, although no footage is edited.
  • Chang Lee's gang firing at the departing car.
  • Chang Lee's two friends being shot.
  • The third and fourth gunmen aiming at Chang Lee.
  • The gunmen firing at the TARDIS.
  • The operating scene is heavily edited with many cuts of Grace and her attempts to retrieve the probe from the Doctor's body. The sound of the Doctor's final scream was also removed.
  • A closeup of Chang Lee's neck being twisted and the sound of Bruce's wife's neck snapping. These cuts were waived for the 2001 DVD release.
The 'uncut' version has since been broadcast by the BBC in the UK, during a night of Dr Who programmes on BBC 2 in November 1999, and this formed the basis for the 2001 Region 2 DVD release.
The first BBC version and Region 2 DVD release include a dedication to actor Jon Pertwee, who played the Doctor in the 1970s and who died a week before the first British broadcast of the film.
