I too, wondered those questions, until I discovered there were 2 Dr. Quinn movies that took place after the series had been cancelled. I quickly searched everywhere to get copies of them, only to find out they were being released on DVD a few months later.
The first Dr. Quinn movie, referred to here as "Dr. Quinn, the Movie" is also known as "Revolutions". The film begins by bringing us back to Colorado Springs. We see Sully as an important figure on the town council, Dr. Mike still working hard to cure people, and Katie, now a little girl watching her mom at work. The town looks just the same, as do the characters. Just like in the series, a huge event happens; Katie is kiddnapped! Dr. Mike and Sully have to follow her kiddnappers into Mexico, where most of the movie takes place. The settings are beautiful, (mainly filmed in Malibu Creek State Park and Paramount Ranch, in different locations than the series took place) Its riviting and the storyline is MUCH more complex than any stories that took place in the TV series. This was my favorite of the two films.
The second Dr. Quinn movie, "The Heart Within" follows up on Dr. Mike's family in Boston. Brian is a man now (he grew up beautifully, and sooo handsome!) and Colleen and her husband, Dr. Andrew Cook struggle to get Colleen's opinions accepted at Harvard Medical School. Like her mother, Colleen must also fight the prejudice of men as a woman doctor.Read more ›
So why only 3 stars? Not as good as the series, that's why.
The first movie (Revolutions) doesn't feel like Dr. Quinn--it's much more gritty western. On the positive side, we get to see some of the townsfolk. When young Katie is kidnapped, Jake, Horace, Robert E., and Cloud Dancing join Sully, Dr. Mike, and Brian on the rescue party. On the downside, we see nothing of Matthew or Hank, and the music isn't at all the same as the Dr. Quinn series, and some continuity elements just don't line up. Where's Jake's wife, Teresa (and the children we hoped they'd have?) What about the baby Grace & Robert E. were expecting by the end of the series? If you like your DQMW for action/adventure, you'll probably like this, but if you like your characters deeply explored, it will leave you wanting.
The second movie (The Heart Within, on the positive side, better uses the characters and remembers the histories, with only a few major glitches. The music is back, as is Beth Sullivan as a writer, all of which are good things. On the downside, we see NOTHING of the townsfolk, as the entirety of the action is in Boston. And those glitches? Andrew's parents, whom we learned in the last episode of the series were dead, are alive and well with no mention of the discrepancy and, again, Matthew is wholly missing. The ending bothered me too, so here comes the spoiler warning:
SPOILER: By the end of the movie, Colleen, Andrew, and Brian are all settled in Boston. The final shot is of Dr.Read more ›
