* HypeBacklash: When it was announced that the film was going to receive a Blu-ray release, Whovians all over were ecstatic: this was one of the only two stories in the series's history shot entirely on film, and as such it could greatly benefit from an HD remaster. However, this excitement later turned to disappointment and even disgust when word broke out that this "remaster" was nothing more than an upscaling and deinterlacing of the 480i broadcast tape, rather than being scanned from the original negatives.[[note]]While the movie ''was'' shot on film, all the editing (including the CGI effects) was done on 480i videotape. If a remaster was made from the original negatives, one would have to re-edit the entire product from scratch, which would be rather expensive compared to just upscaling the broadcast copy. And before you accuse the BBC being cheap, remember that that as a public-funded broadcaster they have a duty to be responsible with the revenue they receive from the license fee and they can't devote it all to Doctor Who.[[/note]]

Added DiffLines:

** The Master's {{camp}}iness, cat eyes, and love of big leather coats and sunglasses make him an odd precursor to a certain [[Franchise/ResidentEvil Albert Wesker]].[[note]]The original ''Resident Evil'' did release the same year as the ''Doctor Who'' telemovie, but Wesker's portrayal would become a lot more similar to the Eric Roberts Master late into the series, especially in ''Resident Evil 5''.[[/note]]

* HarsherInHindsight: Watching Eight trying on shoes and snogging Grace in the hours prior to the climax loses some of its charm value if you've seen "Fragments" from ''Torchwood'', because you realize that it's all happening at the same time as [[spoiler: Alex is ''treacherously murdering his comrades on the Cardiff team''.]]

* ContinuityLockOut: One of the problems with the film is that it included enough from the old series without properly explaining it that it wasn't going to make nearly as much sense to anyone unfamiliar with ''Doctor Who''. Given that this was long prior to YouTube and BBC America, most Americans knew little to nothing about it, and while it tossed in all kinds of plot-points from the series it failed to give them nearly enough context. This is mentioned specifically on the movie's DVDCommentary. Creator/SylvesterMcCoy and Creator/PaulMcGann in particular thought that the first act of the movie should have opened up with the TARDIS landing in San Francisco (sans interior shots), thus saving the whole BiggerOnTheInside thing as a big surprise for the audience during the later scene where Chang Lee steps into the TARDIS. Instead, we see the large TARDIS interior right off the bat, with no context.

* TearJerker: The Seventh Doctor's "death" really is quite sad. The Theatre/MadameButterfly soundtrack doesn't help things.

Added DiffLines:

* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotSymbolic: The regeneration-transfer-machine the Master straps the Doctor into looks an awful lot like a crucifix and crown of thorns. His companion is called "Grace" and the Master takes the form of a snake. The Doctor comes back from the dead barefoot, wrapped in a white robe with long hair flowing over his shoulders. His TARDIS looks like a cathedral. None of it is subtle. WordOfGod says the crown was not designed to be a symbol, nor was the Doctor's regeneration intended to be symbolic.
