article imageSequel to Peter Davison’s The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot underway

By Mathew Wace Peck     Jun 20, 2014 in Entertainment
A sequel to Peter Davison’s “Doctor Who” 50th-anniversary special The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot is being produced, it has been revealed.
The surprise news was relayed by Paul McGann during a talk he gave to the Cambridge Union Society.
Not only has the as-yet-untitled sequel been commissioned, but work on it is already under way, McGann told the assembled students.
The Cambridge Union Society is Cambridge University’s 199-year-old debating society. This term's session began with a talk by Seventh Doctor Sylvester McCoy and ended with McGann.
The Five Doctors ... sort of!
The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot was the brainchild of Peter Davison — the actor who first played the Fifth Doctor in Doctor Who from 1981 to 1984.

Davison, 63, wrote and directed the special; which he also starred in, alongside Colin Baker (Sixth Doctor) and Sylvester McCoy (Seventh Doctor).
It told of the escapades the three actors got into, trying to secure parts in the BBC’s official Doctor Who 50th-anniversary special, The Day of the Doctor, and made up for the lack of Classic-era Doctors in that special.
McGann — who played the eponymous I in the cult 1987 film Withnail and I — also appeared briefly in the episode; as did Matt Smith (Eleventh Doctor), David Tennant (Tenth Doctor), John Barrowman (Captain Jack Harkness) and a host of other people associated with the long-running science-fiction drama series.
Meanwhile, Colin Baker announced recently that The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot would be getting a DVD release. If you haven't seen it yet and can't wait for the DVD, you can do so here.
