The 7th Doctor (Sylvester McCoy) fulfills the final request of The Master. He will transfer his old enemy's remains to Gallifrey. Alas, the Master is somewhat more alive than advertised, and forces the TARDIS to land in San Francisco on December 30, 1999, where the Doctor is gunned down. And that's where his troubles really begin. Intended as a continuation of the original TV series, this movie was hoping to launch a new series if the US ratings were high enough. Alas, they weren't, so a TV show has not to date occured. It has resulted in the 8th Doctor now being used for the current BBC Doctor Who books and Big Finish producing 10 (to date) audio stories featuring Paul McGann as the Doctor.
The Doctor: Paul McGann. Dr. Grace Holloway: Daphne Ashbrook. Bruce/The Master: Eric Roberts.
