Good news! The Five (ish) Doctors is going to get a DVD release. Peter Davison wrote and directed the comedy spoof to mark the fiftieth anniversary of Doctor Who last  year. The thirty minute special starred the fifth, sixth and seventh Doctors - Peter Davison, Colin Baker and Sylvester McCoy- all trying increasingly bizarre ways to sneak into the 50th anniversary special. The spoof also had cameos from former show runner Russell T Davies and previous tenant of the TARDIS, David Tennant, among other Doctor Who stars, past and present. According to doctorwhonews.net, Colin Baker announced at the Doctor Who convention “Myth Makers,” that the episode was to end up on DVD, although a release date is yet to be announced. Davison mentioned the project in passing to Steven Moffat who ultimately helped secure BBC backing to create a professional film, with the Moff himself appearing as a comic Bond-esque villain. "The whole thing started off almost by accident," says Davison. "I was asked a question at a convention - 'Will you be in the 50th?' - and I said if I wasn't, I would damn well make my own! "As a germ of an idea came into my head, the passion for it grew and so it got to a point where it was a real quest to complete it. But I couldn't have done it without Colin and Sylvester throwing their hearts into it." Doctor Who starts in August on BBC One. Keep Up With PopWrapped On The Web!
