Kurzbeschreibung

20. April 2003
Over the last three decades, several film production companies have held the rights to make a Doctor Who movie. To this day, intense speculation surrounds the details of these unmade productions. Here, for the first time, is an in-depth exploration of the Doctor Who films that almost were, including detailed synopses and extracts from the scripts themselves, interviews with the writers, behind-the-scenes articles explaining how these productions came to be, why the contemplated films were never shot, and the role played by stars such as Leonard Nimoy and Steven Spielberg.The Nth Doctor is a lot of funby showing the process of how Doctor Who might have started again, we can get a lot of insight about why it is one of our favorite programs.Michael Lee, Minnesota Doctor Who Information ListI really enjoyed this look at what Doctor Who might have been. The Nth Doctor is a nice addition to the range of non-fiction Who and covers an area about which little was previously known.David Howe, Howes Who

Synopsis

Since 1977, when Tom Baker and his co-star Ian Marter tried to produce a film to be entitled "Scratchman", several different companies have held options to produce a Doctor Who film - including Green Light Productions, Lumiere Films, Amblin Entertainment and BBC Enterprises. These projects have always obsessed Doctor Who fans, partly because they were and remain shrouded in secrecy. The show's absence from our screens for seven years only served to heighten the importance of these projects, as fans were starved of new Doctor Who. This volume contains a detailed plot summary of each script, an account of the circumstances of its creation and the reasons why it was never made, as well as interviews with the various writers. The book also explores the roles and input of the big names associated with each project - men such as Steven Spielberg, Leonard Nimoy and Johnny Byrne. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

4.0 von 5 Sternen "Ah yes, I remember it well..." 11. April 1997
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
How many times have you wondered "What might have been?" It seems fitting that, of all people, a time traveler should be the focus of such an exploration. In "The Nth Doctor", the reader gains insight into the many different scripts (and variations on same) that might have become the next "Doctor Who" feature.

I came away from this book with a greater understanding of the process of putting a story together and producing it: how opportunities are gained and lost, how a small change in a character's background or motivation can make or break a plot and how a story can be more than the some of its parts but, at the same time, lessened by having too many parts. The only downside was that, by the very nature of the topic, many of the stories were very similar, up to and including identical or near-identical narrative.

Even if you're a budding writer, rather than an avid "Doctor Who" fan, this is a book you should consider reading.
4.0 von 5 Sternen A facinating look at what could have been 29. April 2014
Von Steven Workman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I had known about the attempts to reboot Doctor Who but had little idea of what those reboots would have been like...until now. The Nth Doctor details the various scripts and ideas tossed around during the period when Doctor Who was canceled, some of them very close to the original program, others hardly recognizable as Doctor Who. All were fun and interesting to read.

On the downside, this ebook is plagued with grammatical errors, and the author's attempts to tie each script to Doctor Who canon (if such a word could be used with Doctor Who) were very forced; most of the scripts were not written with continuity in mind being complete reboots. On the whole though, this is a great book for Who enthusiasts.
1.0 von 5 Sternen The typesetting is terrible 26. März 2013
Von Matthew Bracher - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
The content is good, fascinating, and worth reading. That's why I'll probably keep the book.

The typesetting, though, is terrible for three reasons.

First are the footnotes. The table of contents is set up, so I can access any section of the book, but the footnotes are only text (and sometimes not even superscripted). For a while I set a bookmark at the chapter's footnotes, and flipped there and back when I encountered one in the text, but that got tedious. Instead I'm skimming them as an interesting set of asides at the end of each chapter, but that's removed from their purpose. I'm amazed at the publisher's lack of care to make them links.

Second... second is the fact that the book seems to be the result of a less-than-satisfactory text recognition software. I would have assumed otherwise, but terms like "Data-hank", replacing the pronoun "I" with "T", Columbus' ship the "Santa Mana", an Immortality Bullet "encasec" in something else, the uppercase-PI replacing the II in Star Trek II, and Star Trek IV's later description as Star Trek TV are all that I highlighted... I soon lost interest and only highlighted what were especially bad. And this isn't counting the times that text is inconsistently bold when quoting a script.

Third, there are countless paragraph

breaks that occur within

sentences. (Although none quite as grievous as what I'm

echoing here.) Those seem to be every few screens.

------

So, to the purchaser:

Be clear that you're buying this for the content. And the content is fantastic... it's just a frustrating reading experience.
5.0 von 5 Sternen A great look at the WHO that might have been..... 15. März 2013
Von Ken Bussanmas - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
As most fans of DOCTOR WHO know, two theatrical films starring Peter Cushing as The Doctor were produced and released in the 1960's. What most fans might NOT know are how many times the series has been looked at for a potential leap to the big screen and the level of talent involved over the years. THE NTH DOCTOR is a great resource for those interested in how The Doctor & his companions might have been shown to the world on the big screen.

From completely faithful interpretations led by talent involved with the television series, such as Fourth Doctor Tom Baker's project that was rumored to have even cast Caroline Munro & David McClure as companions to potential 'blockbuster' versions with Hollywood talent like Spielberg & Sylvester Stallone involved, DOCTOR WHO's involvement with the big screen makes for fascinating reading for WHO fans and cinema fans alike.
