Good Doctor Who Fan Vid


The fan who made this video made it to appear as if it was for a Doctor Who movie. If I were to come into watching this video never hearing or seeing anything about Doctor who than I think I would have believed this was an actual movie trailer. The sound and visuals are very high quality and were very well spliced together to give off that movie trailer feeling. On top of the high quality splicing, they choose very good background music that fed into the movie trailer feeling by making the “movie” appear to be very dramatic.

There doesn’t appear to be a very strong plot throughout the preview however from what I could gather its a drama that examines the lives and the choices of the Doctor and his companions. With his companions it seems to come up with the question of why they choose to travel with him verse living a normal life. It says that we are always told to get married, buy a house, have children, etc. and that is a great life and so why would a companion risk that and choose to travel with the Doctor. The other person that it appears to involve is the Doctor and it talks about his life. It mentions that he has been doing this his whole life and asking why he keeps doing it. It then proceeds to imply that he is running from something and that he cannot run forever and that he will and must settle down. I believe this movie preview is meant to look at both end of the spectrum of life and that one person is breaking from the norm and adventuring out and the other one is breaking away from the adventure and entering a more normal life. However, none of this is the case for the true Doctor Who since this is a fan video and this is their spin on the Doctor.
