DW 50th: The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot

doctorwhoBBC has released a video featuring the previous classic Doctors – Peter Davison (5th Doctor), Colin Baker (6th Doctor), Sylvester McCoy (7th Doctor) – trying to get into the 50th Anniversary Special. The film has the actors running around asking for a part in the 50th Anniversary episode.They go to extreme lengths to try to have some sort of part in the The Name of the Doctor.

The episode guest stars head writer Steven Moffat, Matt Smith (11th Doctor), Jenna Coleman (Clara), David Tennant (10th Doctor and who is Davison’s real son-in-law), Paul McGann (8th Doctor), John Barrowman (Captain Jack Harkness), Georgina Tennant (she played Jenny in an episode and is Davison’s daughter and Tennant’s wife), Russel T Davies (previous head writer), and several past companions –  Janet Fielding (Tegan), Niky Wardley (Tasmin), Katy Manning (Jo Grant), Louise Jameson (Leela), Carol Ann Ford (Susan), Deborah Watling (Victoria), Sophie Aldred (Ace), Sarah Sutton (Nyssa), Lalla Ward (Romana), Anneke Wills (Polly), Lisa Bowerman (Karra/Bernice), and Matthew Waterhouse (Adric). There are special appearances from  Olivia Colman, Sean Pertwee, Peter Jackson and Ian McKellen.This was really an all-star film.

I’m glad that the previous Doctors got to be part of the 50th Anniversary somehow. This video really shows what the fans wanted – for them to be part of it.
