Did You Know?


Several lines of dialogue serve to not only address potential continuity errors (such as why the Fifth Doctor looks considerably older), but also to answer long-standing fan concerns such as why the interior of the TARDIS changed considerably between the 1963-89 series, the 1996 TV movie, and the 2005-present revival. (In the case of the latter, it is revealed that that interior appearance of the TARDIS is akin to a "desktop theme" which can be changed). See more »

Funny short, even if The Fifth is out of character
3 December 2015 | by WakenPayneSee all my reviews

This is a pretty funny short where The Tenth Doctor and The Fifth manage to bump into each other out of time thanks to Ten not raising the shields while flying. There's some banter between them and Five finds out Ten is a future re-incarnation of him. The "You're a fan!" line was hilarious and I always love it when I see multiple Doctors on screen together. And while I do love it when Doctor Who does these little shorts for charity I am going to have to play the bad guy on one major aspect in this short. Peter Davison acts nothing like he did on his run as five! I'm sure any fan of the old and new show will be able to see that he is exactly like Ten, only Ten is more hyperactive. Despite that it is a decent enough homage to the classic show and I would say it is entertaining to watch despite me thinking it's perplexing why they didn't have that little nod before Voyage Of The Damned or The Last Of The Time Lords. Either way, It is worth taking a look at.
