article imageBBC releases 'Five(ish) Doctors Reboot' for Doctor Who 50th

By Mathew Wace Peck     Nov 23, 2013 in Entertainment
The BBC has released a third special drama to coincide with the sci-fi show's 50th-anniversary celebrations this weekend.
Fans of Doctor Who have already been treated to Mark Gatiss's An Adventure in Space and Time, which stars David Bradley as William Hartnell/First Doctor and tells the creation of what has become the world's longest-running television science-fiction drama series, and The Day of The Doctor, which was simulcast around the world on Saturday.
Now, for those bemoaning the lack of Classic-era Doctors, comes The Five(ish) Doctors, a thirty-odd minute special written and directed by Peter Davison, the actor who portrayed the Fifth Doctor from 1981 to 1984.
The episode stars Davison, alongside his successors Colin Baker (Sixth Doctor), Sylvester McCoy (Seventh Doctor) and Paul McGann (Eighth Doctor). Also in the cast are Sean Pertwee, whose father, Jon Pertwee, played the Third Doctor, and Olivia Colman (Broadchurch), as well as one or two other surprising appearances.
Davison had been hinting for the past week that something was in the offing, through the mysterious TheFishDr Twitter account.
