I think the BBC should make a released in theater scary movie based on Doctor Who’s monster known as “The Silence”. A movie that doesn’t involve the Doctor at all. It’s an entire species; I’m sure “Bother the Doctor” isn’t everything they do. In order to appeal to a wider mass audience you could remove the time travel and just make it a movie about Earth and an alien species that has been here forever.
It would probably have to take place before 1969 for reasons obvious to DW fans. The way I imagine it, it could start when a psychologist tries to find out why we forget why we forgot why we walked into a certain room (later discovering that we were usually trying to get away). Or it could take place after 1969 and the previously unmentioned characters come across documents from Nixon’s presidency.
Fun fact: The original footage of the first moon landing is missing. I would most definitely incorporate this into the movie.
The Silence are being murderlized (a word I just innovented) left and right so obviously they would destroy the footage causing them problems. Then you’d have a population split between those given the command to kill and those who have not. I do not believe the movie should mention that the Doctor spliced the footage and the characters merely believing the government did it.
