Web Video / The Great Mistake of Dr. Miles

Go To

The Great Mistake of Dr. Miles is a Batman fan film, taking place in the Adam West and Burt Ward universe. It is meant as a test film for a web series.


  • Adaptational Heroism: Dr. McShane (the original), even though he did genuinely care about his daughter, maybe his son and possibly his two ex-wives, was a man of heavily questionable ethics and morals. Harvey Dent on multiple occasions has compared him to Dr. Mengele. He treats human ethics like a bad joke and you never quite know whose side he's on, or what level he is willing to stoop to in order to get what he wants. Dr. Miles (the adaptation), however, seems to play by the rules and genuinely has Shauna's best interests at heart. Even though he did do something steep by calling Batman and Robin, he did it to protect who he loves.

  • Adaptation Dye-Job: The original Dr. McShane and Shauna McShane are stereotypical Irish redheads, but the renamed characters (Dr. Miles and Shauna Miles) are portrayed with dark hair.
  • Adaptation Name Change: Dr. Miles and his daughter Shauna were originally Dr. McShane and Shauna McShane. Wordof God says that their names were changed just because the fan film was for the 60s verse and that's what their names are in that continuity.
  • Adaptational Nationality: Dr. McShane and Shauna McShane don't just get a name change. They go from being Irish to American.
  • Comically Missing the Point: Played Straight. In the film Dr. Miles shows to Batman and Robin, The Joker threatens to use Dr. Miles' resources against him to destroy Gotham (on a whim no less), Bane pretty much threatens to tear him a new one and the thing that has Batman's attention is the fact that Dr. Miles has a daughter. Dr. Miles even says, word for word, "Well, that's not why I showed you the video, but..."
