Three Classic Doctors execute an elaborate plan to infiltrate the 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who

We continue our nostalgic celebration of the 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who with a chat about this absolutely wonderful Who(ish) Special.

When Doctor Who turned half a century old, we were teased by The Night of the Doctor and thrilled to tears by The Day of the Doctor, and you’ll probably already be aware that they were both brilliant. But casting for these two stories was regrettably, albeit understandably, limited. So what do you do if you happen to have portrayed The Doctor during the Classic Who era and you haven’t yet had a call from Steven Moffat?

Join Peter Davison (Five), Colin Baker (Six), Sylvester McCoy (Seven), and to a sneakily lesser degree Paul McGann (Eight), on a mission to infiltrate the set and be part of the 50th Anniversary as well.

You can watch the whole Special on the BBC website, right here!
(Or if that doesn’t work where you are, give it a quick google. Just be sure to watch it!)

    The Doctor, The Doctor and The Doctor meet up in the early 21st Century to work out some lingering
    issues related to multigenerational famicide. Along the way, they swap spots with Evil Starfishes from Space, gain a deeper appreciation for the subtle art of not giving a fuck, and endure the greatest hardship in the known Universe – a road trip to Wales with showtunes. Actually that last bit was Barrowman. Fucking Barrowman.

    What do you do when you don’t get invited to your own anniversary party?

    You crash it.

    It’s fun, funny, and most of all, it does a wonderful job a poking fun at the sometimes serious veneer that covers the production of Doctor Who, circa 2013.

    Peter, Sylvester and Colin, all delightful men in real life, are equally delightful here, and the trio truly exemplify some of the most wonderful things about the show, and their personas. It was humorous, and digs at Moffat, Baker and McGann were warm and genial.

    There may or may not be a reunion anytime soon, but this third of the three part 50th offering reminds us of how time can be fleeting, but there is always time for one more adventure.

    Score: 4.5/5 The Doctors Daughter married the Doctor, and had a Daughter. Now shes the Doctors Daughter, and the Doctors Daughters Daughter, and The Doctors Granddaughter. You can’t make this shit up. #seanpertweefornumberthree

    I would write a review of this wonderful video, but Kyle said it all perfectly.

    Like the series itself, this is an adventure I could watch time and again. I give it a, “dont feel bad guys, i didnt get a call either”, 4.5
