5.0 out of 5 stars The best multi-Doctor story! Dec 9 2011
By Chris Swanson - Published on Amazon.com
Back in 1973, I was one year old. "Doctor Who" was ten. For its anniversary, the powers that be decided that a multi-Doctor story was a great idea, and so "The Three Doctors" was born.

The story focuses on Gallifrey being attacked by some unknown force. The Time Lords, having exiled the Doctor to Earth a few years before, decide to get him involved, but come to the conclusion that just one of him won't be enough. So they send the Second Doctor to Earth to help the Third, while the First gets stuck in a negative space wedgie (this was caused by Hartnell not being in good health at the time), and has to help from a television screen inside the TARDIS. Soon the TARDIS, the Doctor(s), UNIT, Jo Grant and a game warden all find themselves in an alternate dimension where they find someone familiar to all Time Lords...

This is, without a doubt, the best of the multi-Doctor stories. It's not as bloated as "The Five Doctors" and not as weird and overly-long as "The Two Doctors". Plus Pertwee and Troughton are both at the height of their game and do a wonderful job bouncing off each other.

In addition to all the special features from the original release of this disc, you will also get, as reported by a reviewer on Amazon's UK site:

* 'Making-of' documentary
* When Doctor Who Was Uncool documentary
* Episode encoding/authoring errors on original release fixed

So not a tremendous amount of stuff, but still good.

This is a great story, and a great recommendation for any fans of the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Three Doctors May 14 2012
By R. Hernandez - Published on Amazon.com

This 4 part episode arc was made in honor of the tenth anniversary of the series in 1973 during the 3rd Doctor's appearance. A mysterious black hole appears in the universe draining power from the Time Lords who are alerted by the 3rd Doctor played by Jon Pertwee after U.N.I.T. headquarters is attacked by a mysterious anomally trying to track the Time Lord for the long thought as dead Time Lord Omega. The Time Lords, realizing that they need some serious help decide to break their law concerning crossing time lines and enlist the help of the Doctor's previous selves played by an ailing William Hartnell and Patrick Troughton. The story line is fast and easy to follow as Pertwee and Troughton are taken to a place in the black hole that is ruled and controlled by the very thoughts of Omega plans to take his place in the universe by destroying the Time Lords and ruling supreme. The Doctors are joined by Jo Grant, the "Brig" Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart and U.N.I.T. Excellent story and one of the best adventures featuring the Doctors, the foot soldier monsters are a little kooky as they look like a mount of bubbled jelly but that doesn't even take away from the action.
I bought this dvd to introduce myself to the previous Doctors having started watching Doctor Who near the end of the Tom Baker years up to Sylvester McCoy and then starting again with Christopher Eccleston, David Tennant and now Matt Smith. A lot of people have their favorite Doctor but seeing these first 3 Doctors before Baker is a real treat. I love Hartnell's seriousness and grumpiness, Troughton's clownish demeanor and Pertwee's sophisticated interpretation of the Time Lord. I love how each of them don't think to highly of their other selves as their arrogant personas try to outdo the other but the 1st Doctor puts the other two in their places as he refers to the them as the "Dandy(Pertwee) and the clown(Troughton). This 2 disc edition is loaded with extras like a making of documentary about the 3 Doctors story, the girls of Who talking about sexism in the series, trailers for the special from back in the day, a photo gallery, production notes and audio commentary by Katy Manning(Jo Grant), Nicholas Courtney(the "Brig") and producer Barry Letts. I actually can't wait to buy more dvd's by the first three Doctors and meet the Daleks, Cybermen, Yetis and especially the Master for the first time. Highly recommended and something you can enjoy time and again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent May 14 2013
By Derek Donnell - Published on Amazon.com

The picture is outstanding; the extras are very entertaining,. I have seen these landmark episodes a great many since 1986 when I taped it off the Austin PBS station. A lot of the episodes I had on VHS I have grown tired of but this dvd looks so good that I appreciate the show like new. A worthwhile special edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ah, Classic Who: How I Love Thee Oct. 7 2013
By M. Ruble - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Classic Who Fans know that there as a certain rivalry between the Second Doctor (Patrick Troughton) and the Third Doctor (Jon Pertwee). How much of it was done for the camera we'll likely never know, as they've both passed on, as has the First Doctor (William Hartnell, who's briefly seen here). Done for laughs or actul rivalry, their differences is what makes this one of the better Classic stories. Each is used to being in charge, and as you'd suspect from two aspects of the same person, each has a different plan for solving the problem. How they come to a compromise and defeat the bad guys is part of the fun. A definite must for the Classic Who fan, and recommended for the New Who fan who'd like to get into the Classic Series, but isn't sure where to start. It doesn't require a lot of knowledge about either Doctor to understand what's going on.
