Doctor Who - Tales Lost in Time is a 1996 American-British television movie featuring Paul McGann as the eighth incarnation of the iconic Time Lord, Doctor Who. The movie was directed by Geoffrey Sax and written by Matthew Jacobs. It stars Eric Roberts and Daphne Ashbrook as well. Opening with the Eye of Harmony—a device used by the Time Lords to generate power—from the Time Lord's home planet of Gallifrey, Doctor Who - Tales Lost in Time quickly established a thrilling plotline revolving around an attempt to use the device for nefarious purposes.

The story takes place on December 30, 1999, when a human doctor named Grace Holloway (Daphne Ashbrook) accidentally causes the death of the seventh Doctor at a San Francisco hospital. The death of the Doctor wasn't the end of his journey, as his consciousness managed to implant itself into the body of a human, giving rise to his latest incarnation – the eighth Doctor.

Meanwhile, back on Gallifrey, the Master—Doctor Who's iconic nemesis—had managed to locate the Eye of Harmony and had travelled to Earth in pursuit of Gallifrey's power source. At the hospital where the Doctor was regenerated, the Master (played brilliantly by Eric Roberts) disguised himself as the Doctor and created chaos in the time and space continuum.

Doctor Who - Tales Lost in Time is full of exciting and unexpected twists and turns, as the Doctor embarks on a journey across time and space to save the universe from the Master's plan. Along the way, he teams up with Grace Holloway, who is as brave and intelligent as she is beautiful. Together, they must stop the Master before he gains control of the Eye of Harmony and destroys the world as they know it.

The movie is an action-packed thrill ride, full of exciting chase scenes, daring escapes, and intense battles between the Doctor and his greatest foe, the Master. Paul McGann's performance as the eighth Doctor was impressive; he perfectly captured the Doctor's intelligence, wit, and compassion, making him a worthy successor to the other actors who had previously played Doctor Who.

Eric Roberts, too, was excellent in his role as the Master. He brought a level of sinister charm to the character, making him both menacing and likable at the same time. His scenes with McGann were some of the most memorable, full of tension and intrigue.

The special effects in the movie were also impressive, especially for a TV movie made in the 1990s. The TARDIS—the Doctor's time machine—looked great and was as iconic as ever. The action scenes were also well choreographed and executed, making them a joy to watch.

Overall, Doctor Who - Tales Lost in Time is an excellent movie that is likely to be enjoyed by both die-hard Doctor Who fans and newcomers to the franchise. With an exciting plot, great performances, and impressive special effects, it's a must-watch for anyone who loves science fiction and adventure. It's a movie that will keep you on the edge of your seat from beginning to end.
