Celebrating 25 years since The Five Doctors was originally broadcast, this brand new double disc special edition is a real treat for new and old fans of the show. For not only is the adventure itself good fun, but the special features package is exceptionally strong too.
The story - broadcast to celebrate the-then 20th anniversary of Doctor Who - brings five incarnations of the Doctor together. Patrick Troughton, Jon Pertwee and Peter Davison return to their roles, while Richard Hurndall steps in for William Hartnell, and archive footage of Tom Baker is used to cover his decision not to take part in the story. The various generations of the Doctor are then, one by one, brought to the Time Lords home planet Gallifrey, where they encounter many of their old assistants, and many of their deadliest foes.

The story of The Five Doctors proves to be as much a battle about giving everyone something to do, but Terrance Dicks script does just that, and while its not one of the Time Lords very best adventures, it is an entertaining one.

The extra features package peaks with the assorted commentary tracks: theres one that brings together a series of Doctor Who assistants, another that unites writer Terrance Dicks with Peter Davison, and a hidden Easter Egg commentary where David Tennant, Phil Collinson and Helen Raynor take the microphone. Each is a fascinating listen, for differing reasons.

The Five Doctors DVD is then rounded off with a wide selection of archive material, and a 50-minute documentary looking at Doctor Whos birthday celebrations. And given the wealth of features there is to dig through, its a release thatll be enjoyed for a long time after both the original and extended cut of the main feature have been viewed. A terrific release. --Simon Brew

Voted hot this has some of the best extras for a Doctor Who DVD including 3 commentaries(1 from David Tennant) plus an hour long documentary. I thought it was good value when I bought it for £12.99 when it was released.

That's a damn fine point. I think (despite the fact they still make oodles of money from the original Dr Who) they would rather sweep it under the carpet for now as it just aint cool like the new Dr Who is. Well, that's what they think IMO. There has only been one single nod in the new series to the old Doctors (not including the baddies eg Daleks, Master etc) returning and that was when Tennant didn't like climbing the pylon (which is where Tom Baker met his doom). I like the new stuff, but I am so glad I was a kid when Pertwee/Baker where the Doctors. Modern kids just won't have the same thrill we had.
