Doctor Who Vs. The Temple of Doom

The second instalment in Lucasfilm's Indiana Jones
franchise was again directed by Steven Spielberg, 
and was released in 1984. The Temple of Doom was 
actually set in 1935, a year before the events of part one, Raiders of the Lost ArkHarrison Ford returned 
as the intrepid American archaeology professor, Dr. 
Henry Jones Jnr. In 1985, the film won an Oscar 
and a BAFTA award. 
Paramount Pictures had originally planned a run 
of five movies, whilst George Lucas had always 
intended to create a trilogy of stories - The Last 
Crusade completed Indy's saga in 1989. Then in 
2008, a fourth feature, The Kingdom of the Crystal 
Skull was released.
Disney now own the rights to the Indiana Jones
franchise, and a fifth adventure has been mooted.
