A star studded special written and directed by Peter Davison. With the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who about to film, the ‘Classic’ Doctors are keen to be involved. But do they manage it?

    This was so funny when I first watched it, hoping the BBC will release this on DVD at some point in the future.

    Please can somebody with skills extract Tom Baker’s voicemail message and upload it as an mp3 for us all to use?

      YES PLEASE BBC! Imagine ringing someone up, only to find “Greetings, greetings! Well, I seem to be stuck in the sodding Time Vortex, again! So I can’t assist you. This is one of the many regrets in my life. Goodbye, my dears!” in Tom Baker’s voice!

    Great episode! loved it!

    We’ve definitely been spoiled – with 3 brilliant different styles of show – Adventures in space & time, The Day of the Doctor, and the five-ish doctors, not forgetting, the extra segments that they put in place for those seeing the show at the cinema. – we had an Anchorman 2 trailer which showed ron burgandy trying to decipher his autocue reading ‘peter Capaldi is the new doctor who’, then a small scene with General Strax advising us to turn our phones off, and then we had David Tennant & Matt Smith on a white screen advising us to put our 3d glasses on …… Now – Tennant says ‘watch out for the chin!’

    What a great week its been for us who fans.

      Don’t for Paul McGann’s NIGHT OF THE DOCTOR which was just great.

    It would be great if they released this as an extra on Day oft he Doctor or the Xmas special

    Very funny and well written. I loved the dalek bit that was cut out of day of the doctor.

    Chris Eccleston was the only surviving Doctor not to exclusively contribute anything to the 50th 🙁

      Whereas Paul McGann was in the most specials out of all of them (Night, Day, 5ish, and Light)

      I loved it very well done and just shows how fickle we all are to the old doctors because they age ; (
      It was really nice to see them all together very funny and i am glad they made it !

    I’d laugh if it was actually them under the cloth pretending to be zygons in the day of the doctor

    Enjoyed both this and the 50th special. Really think Colin Baker should of been in the Day of Doctor. I know he’s not quite the Colin he used to be, but he hasn’t appeared in Doctor Who since the end of his original run has he? Give him a chance hated Colin’s Doctor but he is both a lovely person and should be given a chance to repair the damage that was done in the 1980’s.

    BRILLIANT! This for me was the biggest nice surprise of the Anniversary and very welcome following the awful ‘Aftershow Party’ which was a complete shambles. They had all those past cast members there and didn’t hardly chat to any of them. If you are gonna do party games then for crying out loud do them when the cameras aren’t running. They may well be fun to take part in, but certainly no fun to watch.

    • The Ranter

      November 24th, 2013 - 2:53pm

      Completely agree. Why BBC insist on doing these childish, amateurish programmes with zero talent presenters I will never know. It was degrading to the programme celebrating its anniversary, demeaning to those who took part and insulting to the viewer.

      Its about time the BBC took a long hard look at itself where presenters and programming of this nature are concerned and put people / producers / directors on screen that we know they have as evidence only this week by its dramas. Her dad was great but Zoe Ball is awfull. I cant watch Film 2013 and Strictly Results because of the terribleness that is Claudia Winkleman. Get them off screen NOW and lets have quality and professionalism.

      Sorry about the rant.

      Absolutely LOVED Five(ish) Doctors Reboot. Brilliant programme.

    • Tim M

      November 24th, 2013 - 5:12pm

      I don’t know why they got Zoe Ball to present the ‘After Show Party’ anyway. It wasn’t as if she was great when she revealed Capaldi as the next Doctor. That show also looked amateur. But that ‘After Show Party’ was a disgrace on the 50th anniversary and the people who put this together should hang their heads in shame. I know it’s a LIVE show but that’s no excuse for it’s shortcomings.

      I didn’t see the after show party, so I only saw The Day of the Doctor, An Adventure in Space and Time, and The Five(ish) Doctors.

      I didn’t have a problem with the presenters. As with many poor presenters of BBC live events they get given an absolute load of drivel and have to salvage whatever they can out of it and end up getting the bulk of the criticism when the person who really should be getting it is the production team (especially those engineers in charge of the link to the US, which really shouldn’t have been happening anyway).

      As soon as they said ‘a special link with One Direction’ I knew we were in trouble. I don’t know if it was that section or the silly game they played with the assistants who were all totally lost (along with the viewers). The off key/tune ‘happy birthday’ at the end was the icing on the cake (see what I did there!?) The f(ish) Doctors should have been on instead of this drivel.

      If ya desperate the after show party is on iplayer


    November 24th, 2013 - 1:57pm

    LOL!!! That was good.

    Absolutely hilarious! Peter, Colin, and Sylvester were amazing, both as themselves and as Daleks, Moffat was hilarious when he turned up, and I can’t believe they got Peter Jackson and Sir Ian McKellen, too! Tom Baker does seem to have trouble with Time Vortexes these days, and we also got an inside look at the offset world of Doctor Who and if that wasn’t enough, the Classic Doctors observing the wild Paul McGann in his natural habitat!
