I went with LED for my TFTC. I didn't like that I had to cut up my speaker panel to fit the LCD close enough, and have the potential for something to go wrong or not be satisfied with seeing through the sides of the panel past the LCD monitor, which I've seen on a few LCD examples out and about. They may have been setup wrong, but that was my impression of them. Now, your Dr Who may have a friendlier setup to fit an LCD monitor than Data East's TFTC.
I do agree with TheLaw and that any cartoon games look amazing in LCD and fit the mold to replicate an actual cartoon. I would do LCD if I had a Simpsons, Family Guy, etc.
Also, in the Data East games, the LCD monitor is much taller than the original DMD speaker panel, and it blocks a small section of lower line of LEDs lighting up your translite. For me, I didn't want to do that and felt it was too much to mod this game. The LED dots look amazing and it fits like a glove. Plus, it allows me to stay within the original technology the game was meant to have, but add a little twist of color. Again, it looks AMAZING.
This is just my opinion and the route I went. I honestly think you cannot go wrong either way, and those with LCD in their TFTC's look really great as well. I had to chat with ColorDMD about something after receiving my order and they were fast and super helpful. My game's playing experience has been elevated by this simple addition of color. I love it.
COLORDMD IS A GREAT INVESTMENT!!!!!!!
