DOCTOR WHO

BBC1, 8.30pm

The nostalgic may hanker for the old black-and-white days and Daleks, but the Time Lord has moved on. Dr Who's first adventure for seven years is full of head-spinning special effects and located in San Francisco with a mainly American cast. After a brief reappearance from Sylvester McCoy, the last one to play the character on British television, the Doctor is "regenerated" as Paul McGann (left). But the plot is roughly the same as ever, to prevent the Master (played, with nasty green eyes, by the Hollywood actor Eric Roberts) from destroying the world. The Doctor has his usual female ally, a glamorous blonde surgeon (Daphne Ashbrook), and, this being 1996 (part of the time), he even gets to kiss her. In this and other respects, particularly spurts of violence, the show seems aimed at an older age group than it was in the 1960s and 1970s. The murky photography is not an obvious asset.
