There have been three movies based on Doctor Who. In the sixties, there were two movies made. Doctor Who (1965) and "Daleks: Invasion Earth 2150 AD". Both of these starred Peter Cushing as a human scientist named Dr. Who.

You may occasionally see reference to aborted plans for a third Cushing movie based upon "The Chase", however this has been debunked; there's nothing to suggest a third Cushing movie was ever considered.

There was, of course the 1996 TV Movie, starring Paul McGann in his only full-length on-screen appearance as the Eighth Doctor. (He reappeared in the mini-episode "The Night of the Doctor".)

The Peter Cushing movies were based on the BBC TV show but weren't part of it. (They were not made for TV, nor were they made by the BBC.) They were remakes of the Doctor Who episodes "The Daleks" and "The Dalek Invasion of Earth", but in which the Doctor was a Human scientist named Dr. Who, who invented a time machine called Tardis. The 1996 TV Movie with Paul McGann was part of the BBC TV show. (Made for TV by the BBC & its partners.) Although some fans have tried to discount it as being part of the canon (due mostly to some controversial revelations about the Doctor's character and the TARDIS), the revival TV series has since recognized it, with the episode "Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS" explicitly confirming several facts about the TARDIS that originated in the TV movie.

In addition to the above, there have also been special stand-alone, feature-length episodes of Doctor Who on occasions that could be considered movies in their own right: these include "The Five Doctors" (with a 90-minute running time it remains the longest single "episode" of the TV series ever produced, even longer than the 1996 TV movie) and "Voyage of the Damned".

Both "The Day of the Doctor" and "Deep Breath" have been referred to as movies due to both their running times and the fact they were shown in theatres, but they are officially considered episodes, not films.

As for the spinoffs, K9: Timequake is coming soon.
