Trivia

Was envisaged as a pilot - an alternative way to bring back Doctor Who, with Richard E. Grant as the Ninth Doctor (though no mention is made of his predecessors). When a new TV series was announced in 2003 (for airing 2005), this plan was abandoned and the new series featured a definitive Ninth Doctor. Plans for a DVD release of this animated feature were subsequently cancelled, as were plans for follow-up adventures featuring Grant as The Doctor. See more »

It is a shame this was not aired...
18 June 2005 | by FeistyFimBuffSee all my reviews

...however I have just watched the new series of Dr Who, 2005, the last episode was aired today as it goes. It was an excellent series and the writing, acting and production were first class!

The writer for the entire series was Russell T Davies, creator of "Queer as Folk".

Christopher Eccleston (The Dr) decided shortly after the first episode was aired that he would not do a second series so the last episode features a famous Time Lord regeneration phase at the very end, the Dr for the 2006 series emerges as none other than David Tennant (mentioned as the Caretaker's voice in this listing and recently seen in "Casanova" on the BBC).

I highly recommend the series aired in 2005, a cracking return to TV after the last series in 1989 (when it looked like Dr Who was to be canned for good!) and if "Casanova" was a judgement call then Tennant will be every bit as good in 2006!
