Much like the Sycorax, the city of Cleveland also rocks. Not just because “Cleveland Rocks!” was a song by Ian Hunter. And not just because the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Museum is located there. One reason that Cleveland rocks might just be a group of Doctor Who fans there who’ve made their own fan film–and it has already received a glowing review.
Details of the story and characters are a bit scarce so far, but examiner.com reviewer Kenneth Carpenter loved the five-minute movie, called T.R.A.C.E.. Carpenter has nothing but praise for director Johnny Wu and his amateur filmmaking team:
“TRACE definitely deals with the Doctor, and I won’t tell you which one, although it is an obvious and well done one, believe you me. I was impressed with what I saw. What I can say is that the focus is on this being a potential tie-in to a larger story, has lots of martial arts without affecting the Doctor’s reputation, and more…”
In the conclusion of his spoiler-free article, Carpenter remains enthusiastic about the film and gives his final verdict:
“The production quality is quite good, and cinematic, with music by [Wu's] longtime composer, who always does a fantastic job, and even keeps to a Doctor Who theme… The cuts and dialogue were great, and above average. I give thumbs up, and only have one slight issue with the whole film….like any Doctor Who episode, it keeps you wanting more!”
T.R.A.C.E. is set to be officially released on May 7th, so keep an eye on kasterborous.com for further details. Until then, click play to enjoy the teaser above!
