Doctor Who, Doctor Who Movie, All Lights Film Magazine, ALFM, All Lights MagazineWith speculation of  David Yates, who directed several of the Harry Potter films, possibly bringing Doctor Who to the big screen and transforming a British cult science fiction show into a Hollywood Blockbuster, it raises the question of just how Americanized would it be and how much of the iconic ‘britishness’ would be taken away? This American style re-imagining has been attempted before, however on a much smaller scale. Practically unknown outside of the Doctor Who fan-world was the 1996 television-film simply titled ‘Doctor Who: The Movie’, the BBC had teamed up with American studio FOX to make a poorly marketed reboot. The film featured an all-american cast except for Paul McGann, who starred as the time-traveling Doctor. It was intended for an American audience but received disappointing ratings Stateside.
