Doctor Who Fan Films: A Primer

The sheer volume of fan films – in any genre – can often be daunting in this everything-on-the-internet age.

Having recently re-acquainted myself with the Star Wars fan film universe, I popped over to and faced pages and pages of links and wondered to myself, “Which are the good ones? How many of these do I have to watch to find the best ones?” The same is true of virtually any genre of fan film, although not all subsets have the sheer overwhelming numbers of the SW set. And really: Doctor Who fan films have a perceived advantage over other styles; elaborate special effects are optional, and even the character himself, with his seemingly endless regenerations, is open to a wide range of interpretation.

You don’t even have to painstakingly recreate a TV costume (although many do) to embody this iconic character. You just need a good script, some decent actors, and a sense of wonder, and DW fan film fans will likely go along for the ride. In that spirit, for our third installment, I offer a primer for Doctor Who fan films: listed below are six flicks that will give you a good overview of some of the better offerings this subsection has to offer. This is not necessarily an

Broken Doors (1987) – Seattle filmmaker Ryan K. Johnson made four Doctor Who fan films in the 1980s, and was quite possibly the very first director to cast a female in the role of the Doctor. This, the fourth and final of his Who fan vids, is distinctly the best, a surreal story set in a dangerous netherworld in which the Doctor and her faithful companion Carl try to make their way through a series of tests.

Victimsight (2009) – An excellent example of a new breed of higher-gloss/high-aspiration Who fan film, this Canadian production has strong echoes of the recent BBC series, but retains a distinct identity and is sharply directed by Eldon Letkeman. Shot in hi-def, Victimsight is colorful and engaging.

The Schrödinger Effect (2008) – No list of this sort would be complete without mention of Chris Hoyle, a Leeds-UK-based vid-maker who has been churning out enthusiastic Who fan films since the early 1990s. His most recent production is also his most polished, with Hoyle’s classic Doctor revisiting his old friend, Charlotte (the charming Emma Bone), who then find themselves pursued by hostile forces. With outstanding SFX by Shivering Cactus, and a

    Wow, very flattering that you state the first episode of “Doctor Who: An Unofficial Fan Series” aspires to be the “:Star Trek: New Voyages” of the Who set. As a co-executive producer at New Voyages / Phase II it is a big moment when other fan films are compared favorably to our work!

    While not a DW fan I know many of our crew are fans!

    Best of luck with the columns and, IF, you producer your version wishes for a great success!

    Gosh! Thank you for featuring Deconstruction, and your very kind words!

    To make a fan film at any technical level usually requires phenomenal enthusiasm and dedication. It’s awesome to see so many newer films now being made. Back in the late 90s when we started making vids and audios, we were worried that Dr Who fanfilms were a dying breed alongside the memory of the real series. All the great productions were being spoken of in the past tense.

    Now I’m very happy to say that’s not the case. There seems to be a renewed interest and so much to choose from again which makes for exciting times. After seeing Fire and Ice, I can safely say the bar has been set at a whole new level!

    so is this real or not? I think its fake because there not even a doctor that looks like that in the whole series! this is totally fake! I do like the girl thought she was good. and also that explains why all the people didn’t have real British accents like every other person on the real doctor who.
