Brace yourselves! We’re about to pull a Lethbridge(-Stewart) and be confronted with multiple Doctors! No, not the three from Saturday, but Five(ish) Doctors
! Peter Davison, former Doctor Who
actor from the days of the fifth Doctor, has put together a short film to commemorate 50 years of timey wimey.
In a previous interview, Davison expressed his displeasure at not being asked back for the filming of the 50th anniversary episode
along with several other Doctor Who
actors. While Tom Baker was the only actor to get a side role in the 75min special, the other Doctors were
included—and there were Easter eggs aplenty!
Davison brought together the sixth and seventh regenerations of the famous Time Lord to bring us The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot.
This short film, which also starred Colin Baker and Sylvester McCoy, takes a humorous stance on Davison’s non-appearance in the 50th
special, bringing the Classic Who stars back to our screens.
The short takes its place with other mini-episodes and interviews spanning the week leading up to the anniversary.
began its adventures in 1963 with the airing of “An Unearthly Child.” This pilot episode starred William Hartnell as the Doctor and Carole Ann Ford as his granddaughter, Susan.
