I don't know if I can say that I was aware of any of the characters and stories on the BBC's sci-fi channel before watching this film, so it is hard to judge. But I was pleasantly surprised, because I was surprised by how much of the material from the early 1990s was incorporated into the present day. I have been a fan of Neil Gaiman ever since I first read the Wormtongue stories and was somewhat skeptical of the information he had to share about the characters and events on this site. However, he did a great job of ensuring that the information was present on the screen, and that it was presented in a way that only involved the core cast, and of course the Doctor, which was actually a credit to both him and the production team. There were also some interesting back story details about the writer and illustrator of the original three stories, which were very interesting and valuable to the viewer, especially those who had not read the stories. It was a welcome addition to the timeline that most of the later stories were related to the history of the time travel paradoxes, which would be the subject of a later piece, but for now, the pieces that were most fascinating to me were the characters and story lines. One thing that had me wondering, and that was later pointed out by another reviewer, was that a lot of the information in the interview segments that were edited in order to make a good-sized movie, were actually plot points that didn't actually appear in the stories themselves. However, this seemed to be a common problem, and while I was pleased to see that some pieces were added to the timeline, I had no trouble in locating some of the bits I missed from the stories, and reading the comments about what the actual story was, which led me to figure out that the version I watched was the longer version of a TV movie with shorter segments that were only re-cut for this film. The questions that still lingered, and that I still want to know the answer to, were where there was no mention of why a story was related to another story, or why the Doctor, or any other character, was called "Doctor". Also, why is it that the Doctor is on the screen in one scene and in the next, and the black and white version of the first episode was not, yet they do show a clip of the young boy in the ship, and why was it only in the television movie version of the first episode, and not in the longer version? The only other point I would like to bring up is why the Doctor is seen holding the laptop computer? This is where the production team might have added a lot more information, and why were there no other pieces from the episodes? Any information I can gather about these will be posted in the comments section, but to sum up, it was a good addition to the timeline. I do think that some more stories of the second Doctor could be done, and have not really been seen since the TV version, but I would still like to see a feature film based on the Doctor's role in the last three stories, which I am sure that both of the two lead actors would be interested in. I hope they do make a new film. They just seem to be missing a bigger piece to it.

The movie is not about the invention of a machine. It is about the technology that shaped our world. The story is very simple: 2 generations of the most remarkable inventions of the 20th century. The other reviewers here are exaggerating. I will not repeat it. The invention of the television set, the jet engine and the TV set itself. The story is about how such technology was created and how the end product is created. The film is very simple. Its main aim is to show that the technology itself is not important. What matters is what is created with it. The whole movie is about this idea and it has been done very well. If the film is about TV, then you can easily guess that the technology of the day was the one that is shown in the movie. The story is told very easily and you would not feel like you had to read a book. You would have the same sensation as if you were watching a movie. The music by Legrand is also very good. It is a combination of rock, classical, jazz, jazzy and progressive. The music of the two directors are not too much different from each other. To me it sounded like they did not listen to each other but instead did it on their own. It was just as I imagined it, just as I thought it should sound. I also liked the music of the actress from the movie. She does not sound like a teenage girl but more like a woman. She does not sound like a typical popular actress. Overall, the movie is very enjoyable and informative. A must watch if you are interested in the history of the technology and technology of today.
