The 1996 Doctor Who TV movie (a.k.a. “The Enemy Within”), a joint effort between the BBC and Fox to revive the series starring Paul McGann, will finally get a Special Edition DVD release on February 8th, 2011. the movie follows the Doctor in San Francisco after his regeneration due to a gunshot wound, where he meets up with Dr. Grace Holloway (Daphne Ashbrook), and pursues the Master (Eric Roberts), who has once again cheated death.

Alas, the movie created more questions and inconsistencies and didn’t really spawn the hoped for revival, but it has been absorbed into the accepted canon, earning McGann his status as the Eighth Doctor in the pantheon, and it did keep the Doctor on the minds of fans until the far more successful BBC attempt.
