With such an extended and diversified historical past, it’s extremely shocking that Doctor Who has solely hardly ever graced the large display screen. In over 50 years, two (non-canon) motion pictures from the 1960s and a largely subpar TV film is all there may be for followers to sink their collective enamel into.
As the present continues to experience worldwide success, boasting a heap of awards and a loyal fan base, the present runners proceed to tug their toes on the prospect of a film. Despite latest efforts by Sony and the BBC, there haven’t but been any substantial developments, nor many cemented guarantees for the nice Doctor to turn out to be a film star.
This slowness is definitely not distinctive. Since the present’s inception, quite a few cinematic proposals have been pitched and even introduced, earlier than being delayed, rejected and finally exterminated.
It’s no shock that many nice artistic minds have tried over time to get a movie off the bottom; the scope of Who is suitable and the mythology is wealthy for an superior, massive funds sci-fi spectacle, however it by no means appears to get previous pre-production.
Spearheaded by some shocking names and hindered by quite a lot of components, these are the Who motion pictures that by no means noticed the sunshine of day.
