That’s the word on the street anyway. According to the Sixth Doctor himself, Colin Baker, over at the Myth Makers convention panel this weekend, the 50th anniversary spoof will be making it’s way onto DVD at long last. Not only that, but it’ll feature on an as of yet-unspecified special set featuring the Eleventh Doctor, Matt Smith.
An unnamed BBC DVD spokesperson claims the set will likely include Night of the Doctor, Day of the Doctor, and Time of the Doctor (no word yet on Name of the Doctor, but here’s hoping it’s the full “____ of the Doctor” series). I’m terribly excited if this is true, personally. One of the best parts of the 50th celebrations in my opinion was the spoof film The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot, and to finally get the chance to see it again on DVD (preferably Blu-Ray) will make my geek heart rejoice. And who know’s, I may even critique it for you all.
For those who don’t know, The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot is a short film about the classic Doctors (Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy, and to a lesser degree Paul McGann) trying to sneak their way into the 50th Anniversary episode, The Day of the Doctor. The epicly hilarious short was directed by Peter Davison, and featured an ensemble cast of fan favorites, including John Barrowman, Georgia Moffet, Peter Jackson, Sir Ian McKellen, Steven Moffat, and even the Tenth Doctor himself, David Tennant.
Have you seen The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot? What were your thoughts? Should ‘Name’ be featured on the box set? Would it be even better with An Adventure in Space and Time? Throw it all in!
