‘Doctor Who’ ‘Wings 3D’ Review: David Tennant showcased to please Whovians

Fathom Events and BBC Worldwide treated Doctor Who fans to a special two-night event at AMC Theatres. For a family of Whovians, the David Tennant double-feature was faaan-tastic. Just like traveling with the Doctor, we were transported through time and space to revisit two of our favorite episodes — AND we watched it on the gigantic “silver screen” and with absolutely no commercial interruptions.

Both nights featured David Tennant, known as the 10th Doctor (and at the top of our list of time-travelers). Again, the benefit of this event was running along with the Doctor and his companions in larger than life-size representations on the movie screen.

On the first night, the adventure was a combination of two Doctor Who episodes, “Rise of the Cybermen” and “Age of Steel.” The Doctor and his companion Rose Tyler (played by Billie Piper) land in an alternate universe where everything is the same, and yet different. We traveled up to the climax of the first episode, and through the magic of editing, we rode the TARDIS (Time and relative dimension in space) right into the next episode without stopping.

Following the double feature, we were included in an exclusive interview with Tennant as he reflected on his time as the Doctor.

The second night featured the documentary Wings 3, presented in RealD™ 3D. David Tennant narrated the spectacular film that took many of us fans back to the days of Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom where we saw wild birds of every kind in their natural habitats. The scenes were breath-taking, and with the 3-D glasses, moviegoers were transported right into the swamps, lakes, oceans, trees and mountains of worldwide settings.

And why was this even more spectacular? Because for us Doctor Who fans, David Tennant was taking us through the skies and the alongside the flights of the birds with his melodious Scottish voice.

The film was recut for cinemas from the BBC/PBS natural history series Earthflight, Wings 3D, presented in RealD™ 3D.

The two-night cinematic experience was worth the trip to the theaters, and Doctor Who fans got their fill of David Tennant, at least for now.
