SAN DIEGO, CA, April 01, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Vincent J. Roth, creator and star of the Surge of Power series of superhero movies is pleased to announce a free virtual film screening of his newest short film “Surge of Power: Doctor Who Tribute” to help all enjoy some laughter during the nation’s social distancing protocols due to the coronavirus pandemic. The “Doctor Who Tribute” is a comedic parody celebrating over 50 years of the beloved Doctor Who television series that pokes light-hearted fun at some of the most charming tropes in the Doctor Who TV show.

The screening is free on Vimeo this Saturday, April 4th @ 10pm Easter / 9pm Central / 8pm Mountain / 7pm Pacific and will kick-off via a Live Facebook introduction followed by Q&A. The film features cameos from over 25 Doctor Who actors representing every era of The Doctor from the 1st Doctor up to the 13th Doctor, with a special cameo from Nichelle Nichols (the iconic Lt. Uhura from "Star Trek") appearing in her continuing role as Omen in the "Surge of Power" superhero movies.

Vincent J. Roth, a corporate attorney by day, has always loved sci-fi shows and films and created the "Surge of Power" series of superhero movies to help entertain sci-fi and superhero fans. Like many others, he has long enjoyed the Doctor Who television series. Vincent portrays Surge, the superhero, as he is also an actor and screenwriter, who enjoys hosting events for his latest films, but given the current social distancing, he wanted to offer this premiere virtually so audiences can enjoy the debut remotely. "In light of the current state of the world, I want to help lift people’s spirits, so we decided to show the movie virtually, offer some fun comedy and engage in a live online format while people are at home,” stated Vincent J. Roth. "This film event is not just for Doctor Who fans, but all audiences, to provide some much needed laughter, even if for a few minutes, which I believe we all need during this time."
