Product Description

Amazon.ca

Yes, "The Five Doctors" is the one that gathers together Hartnell, Troughton, Pertwee, Baker, and Davison, dumps them on some moorland, and lets some of the Doctor's greatest enemies take potshots at them. Except, of course, William Hartnell had passed on by the time this series was made in 1983 (although his replacement Richard Hurndall does an excellent job), and Tom Baker was only featured as a patched-in cameo, apparently prevented from joining in by a temporal thingummy. However, this kind of creakiness comes with the territory and is soon forgotten. The assorted incarnations of the Doctor (together with a scattering of assistants) are drawn together through time and space to battle Daleks, Cybermen, Yeti--those weird androids that keep jumping into the air and disappearing--and many other old foes. They realize that they're on their home planet of Gallifrey and must eventually deal with the legacy of Rassilon, founder of the Time Lords. --Roger Thomas

5.0 out of 5 stars Extras Aug. 12 2010
By sjsmith
Format:DVD
The 25th Anniversary edition of the Five Doctors is loaded with extras. There are three different commentaries included on the discs. One with a group of companions'Carole Ann Ford (Susan), Nicholas Courtney (the Brigadier), Elisabeth Sladen (Sarah Jane), and Mark Strickson (Turlough)'is great fun. The track with Peter Davison (the Fifth Doctor) and writer Terrence Dicks is a bit drier, and is more focused on the special (though it does point out the various changes and additions). The third commentary is an Easter egg with previous Doctor David Tennant, producer Phil Collinson, and script editor Helen Raynor, talking about what it was like when they saw it for the first time when they were kids. An onscreen text information option provides a lot of background and production information. "The Ties that Bind" is a 30-minute featurette that deals with the way that continuity was worked into the special. There are also a collection of different talk show spots promoting the special. You get a good collection of clips from the show, allowing you to get a better sense of the various Doctor's personalities.

Format:VHS Tape
The original version of The Five Doctors was the first story I bought on sale video, and I saw it before the normal sequence of Peter Davison stories that were being shown on PBS. It gave me a good look at Patrick Troughton, Jon Pertwee (the Second and Third Doctors), as well as Liz Sladen (Sarah Jane), and Nicholas Courtney (the Brigadier).
The Doctor, Tegan, and Turlough are resting at the Eye of Orion, a relaxing field with an effect like Earth after a rainstorm. An unseen black-gloved figure manipulating some controls and kidnaps the First Doctor, played with great William Hartnell-ness by Richard Hurndall. A miniature of the Doctor appears. Hmmm, who around here likes shrinking people? Familiar? This happens to the Second and Third Doctor, as well as other companions, but a glitch occurs with the Fourth Doctor and Romana II, who are trapped in a time vortex. With each attack, the Doctor suffers twinges of cosmic angst, and he must do something, lest he be pulled into the vortex and into oblivion. "Great chunks of me are being detached, like icebergs," he says. "I must become whole."
The High Council of Time Lords, still led by Borusa, summon the Master to rescue the Doctor from Gallifrey's Death Zone, "the black secret at the heart of your Time Lord paradise" which is "not the most hospitable of environments." He does so, but is rebuffed by two of the Doctors, understandable as he was full of tricks and traps before.
The Cybermen play a major role here, as three squads of them come out.

5.0 out of 5 stars A GREAT ADVENTURE! Aug. 11 2002
Format:VHS Tape
This is one of the greatest Doctor Who adventures ever, if not the best. All five incarnations of the Doctor pitted against the greatest foes in this universe! What's not to love! Grade: A+

4.0 out of 5 stars Who's on first? July 6 2002
Format:DVD
That would seem to be the best explanation of this. 4 of the doctors 5 regeneerations are dropped outside gallifreys main building called the tomb of rassilon to take part in a sadistic game. patrick troughton and nicholas courtney are hilarios as they trudge along, john pertwee and i believe eliozabeth sladen are ok...even if sara jane over acts.
The one i feel sorry for in this is the master. He honestly tries to help the doctor out and is basically told to get lost.
there were some things they changed in the dvd i didnt care for. One being the voice of rassilon at the end. he sounded fine in the verisons ive seen. the other was special effects tweeking. we loved the show because it didnt have good effects...It was cheesy.
good show no doubt and a must for troughton fans as he is in rare form.

5.0 out of 5 stars Five legends on the same screen June 26 2002
Format:DVD
This special episode of Doctor Who allows the viewer a capsule look at twenty years of Doctor Who history in the space of 90 minutes. The plot is typical Who, and the action flows from one scene to the other with astonishing quickness. The resolution is classic Who as well, and leaves the fan wanting more.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best of the Davison era. March 26 2002
Format:DVD
This Five Dr. special was the best of the Davison era(even though it did not include Tom Baker) Peter Davison, Jon Pertwee and Patrick Troughton were all in it! Richard Hurnell(I think that's how you spell it) was pretty good, though nothing like William Hartnel. Old compaignions made thier appearance as well, some cameo, some had major parts, though most of them seemed a little naive or silly. Others, like Tegan, were a bit wiser. Turlough did not have much of a part in Dr. Who as a whole. He very seldom showed up in this, except inside the TARDIS.
This special edition included scenes cut out in the original broadcast(originally broadcast in America anyway) As for the special effects, they ruined them all! The original release, had sharper more futuristic images for the Time Scouper and looked much better. This "enhanced" version glossed it over with some kind of computer genorated blurry white thing and it is awful. The TARDIS sequence was replaced with the same, cheapening the effect. What were you thinking, BBC!
However, the storyline is inhanced by the added scenes and adds to the continuity. The Master's role was a bit weak in this story. The Cybermen were [bad]! The Daleks made a small appearence.(and were [bad] as usual!)

4.0 out of 5 stars Priceless commentary, and a somewhat cheesy classic!
I'm actually going to start with the story itself first. Who fans know it, and I think there's generally some great affection for this. Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars OK. Good audio bonus track.
I purchased the DVD, as I did the video. The plot is good, and I remember as a kid loving this episode. On the DVD, you get audio track from Peter Davision and Terrance Dicks. Read more
