Quite possibly the best Doctor Who fan film yet!
3 February 2015 | by Everything_PopCultureSee all my reviews

Doctor Who Besieged is an incredible fan film based on the official BBC series Doctor Who that ultimately brings one of the dreams of Whovians that was supposed to be impossible to life. A crossover with the Alien franchise.

In this fan film, we get Ryan Kendrick as quite possibly the BEST fan film Doctor to date! He ranks the best, even beating Kenneth Raymond Moore of Doctor Who Fire and Ice and Jack Edwards of Doctor Who Animus. He is a delightfully fun, humouress, smart and witty Doctor, combing elements from clear fan favourite Time Lords, Tom Baker, David Tennant and Matt Smith.

We even get an interesting and joyful companion in Adi. The acting in Besieged doesn't fall short of amazing. It's well acted, with every character being a intrigue to watch. The writing here also makes heavy use of reference and easter eggs to both Doctor Who and Aliens.

The visual effects here are good for its budget, presenting detailed aliens, green screen and good locations.

Now to get onto the story. SPOILER WARNING: After an experiment in orbit of a start goes terribly wrong, the Doctor and Adi arrive on the ship to see what's going wrong? Finding themselves on a mysterious planet, the Doctor encounters an Alien Queen and facehuggers who teleport onto the ship above and begin to cause havoc.

While watching this, it occurs to me that sadly we will never have a true official Alien/Doctor Who crossover in the official Doctor Who series, but this is as close as we will get and it delivers. A solid story, a great line up of actors and characters, good locations, this fan film is nothing short of incredible.

Lastly, SPOILER ALERT, the film ends with an amazing regeneration scene which, along with its music, should be used in the official series for a Doctor. The Doctor stands strong near a lake, accepting his life, and regenerates, or perhaps SPOILER ALERT he dies as his face begins to turn into a black abyss.
