Doctor Who: The Movie

Obviously ridiculous (an amorous Doctor? half-human??), still, I have to side with the Master for the first and only time when he corrects Grace's grammar.

Doctor Who: Season 26

And all we learn (in the end) is that the Doctor has many secrets, not all of them nice.

Doctor Who: Season 25

The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot

As usual, John Barrowman's section is the best part of this cute li'l for-the-fans short.

Doctor Who: Season 24

Big sigh of relief. This doctor (Sylvester McCoy) is fun, a good actor, and treats his companions with respect.
