Review by Anne Godden-Segard*
Impressive. Very Impressive. Five people got together with an idea to make a Doctor Who film. Just under a year later, that film was being viewed at Visions 98, and by private audiences, and they loved it.
Doctor Who fans or not, it's great fun to watch. The original screenplay is by Jennifer Adams Kelley, Steve Hill, and Rob Warnock (who also composed the great soundtrack). The Doctor (Steve Hill) and Peri (Jennifer Adams Kelley) are caught in the Vortex, and must save themselves. Or maybe it's someone else who can save them.
Then, there is the ominous Vortex Guardian (Dennis Kytasaari). I won't give the story away, but I will say that you get very caught up in the action, so at times you forget you are not watching the original Doctor Who. Those moments come especially when you see authentic footage of the film shot in England.
A friend of mine and I saw it, and loved it. Honestly. I also bought a copy for my husband, who is a serious Doctor Who fan, for Christmas.
*Note: Anne Godden-Segard was Mr Warnock's dialog coach for REALITYWARP, but she was not otherwise involved with the project. We tell you this to eliminate any accusations of bias.
