Three actors who had played Doctor Who, Peter Davison, Colin Baker and Sylvester McCoy, are anxious to appear in the 50th anniversary special. A humorous look at the production of the long running TV show and the 50th anniversary special, with a plethora of famous cameos including Olivia Colman who can't believe that she hasn't been invited to take part in it. "I'm usually in everything." Sylvester McCoy must take time off from shooting The Hobbit so there are also cameos from Peter Jackson and Sir Ian McKellen as well as show-runners Russell T. Davies and Steven Moffat. Written and directed by Peter Davison. Written by Steve Crook <>

A delightful piece of fluff
13 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The fans have always looked forward to multi-Doctor stories from "The Three Doctors" to "The Two Doctors" to "The Five Doctors".

This is no different with the possible exception that this is the 50th anniversary one of the top science fiction franchises in the world and the demand for a multi-doctor story, however impractical, was there.

Enter Peter Davison...

Scene: Christmas 2012-Filming is fast approaching for the actual 50th anniversary episode (Day Of The Doctor) with three actors anxiously awaiting a phone call from show runner Steven Moffat. It becomes more and more clear that Mssrs Davison, C. Baker and McCoy are not penciled into the cast. Desperate times call for desperate measures. They picket The BBC building in London. Enter John Barrowman who informs the picketers that Doctor Who is filmed in Cardiff, Wales.

Road Trip!! The boys arrive in Cardiff and promptly steal t-shirts resembling their old costumes from the Doctor Who Experience. Luckily, Peter Davison has an inside contact on the set, a certain actor with a Scottish accent who happens to be married to his daughter. That's when the fun begins as they are hunted by security, wander through some of the offices, sign autographs for one of the guards, lock the Dalek operators in their waiting room and manage to get on set disguised as Daleks. Mission Accomplished! Or is it? Cut to (after closing credits) two weeks later where Producer Steven Moffat and an associate are viewing and editing the programme. The show is running 10 minutes over, the Dalek scene is then cut from the programme. When Mr. Moffat is distracted by a phone call, the editor moves onto the next scene, one with The Doctor, Clara and Kate first enter the under-gallery. Guess who might be under those shrouds? Lightly poking fun at itself for almost the entire 30 minutes, there are many 'insider references' and inside jokes that will delight the fans (particularly ones of the classics) but do not have to be understood to enjoy the programme.

The cast list is impressive and the show needs multiple viewing to see who's who. And despite the title, there are references or nods to each of the other doctors with the exception of the late William Hartnell, Chris Eccleston, and the upcoming doctor, Peter Capaldi. Or if there were, I missed them.

Doctors 2 and 3 are referenced by their sons, David Troughton and Sean Pertwee respectively. Tom Baker is referenced when Colin calls him and we hear his voice on a voice-mail. And of course, Matt Smith and David Tennant physically appear.

30 minutes of fun at least semi-sanctioned by the BBC judging from the cast and use of opening credits. Very enjoyable.
