Five Doctors Gather

At the "Official Doctor Who Celebration" last weekend in London four classic Doctors and the present Doctor provided a fantastic photo op.

I'm surprised they didn't get them all together, minus the never present Christopher Eccleston. That would have been epic, especially with Peter Capaldi. However, this is still a treasured image in my library. It even looks good when they cut up...

Among the media releases we received for the 50th, one of my favorites has to be "The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot," written and directed by fifth Doctor Peter Davison. A 30 minute film, it starred Davison, along with former Doctors Sylvester McCoy, Colin Baker and Paul McGann. With a host of guest appearances ranging from the director and another star of The Hobbit, former companions new and old, a hilarious "cameo" from another former Doctor and not one but two showrunners of Doctor Who. This hilarious film plots the determination of the former Doctors to be in the 50th special, and the equal determination on the other side that they not be included. Peter Davison did a brilliant job of poking fun at the egos of the actors, which were equally as brilliantly acted out by them. I haven't seen where it might be, but I definitely hope this is included with the release of "The Day of The Doctor"  because I think it's the perfect companion piece to the special.
