Today marks the 30th anniversary of the ‘Doctor Who’ episode ‘The Five Doctors’, a special episode commemorating the 20th anniversary of the ‘Doctor Who’ series.  What made this episode so unique was that it brought together 5 regenerations of the Doctor to work with each other in one big adventure (as Whovians know, the Fourth Doctor scenes were edited in as Tom Baker had no interest reprising his role for the episode at the time). So what better way to celebrate this momentous occasion that to revisit the Doctors in this short film ‘The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot’.

With the 50th anniversary of the series, many Whovians were hoping for the same thing: a reunion of all the actors who have played the Doctor to come together. Imagine the surprise and outrage when it was disclosed that only David Tennant (the Tenth Doctor) would be involved (although Tom Baker did get a great cameo in the episode).

So what are the other “Doctors” to do? Well, try to get in on the anniversary show, of course!

In this hilarious romp written and directed by Peter Davison, watch as he and fellow former Doctors attempt to get themselves involved in some way with the 50th anniversary episode.

The 30 minute film is chocked full of in jokes, Whovian celebrity appearances and lots of nods to the Classic series and is a treat to watch! What a great way to cap the 50th anniversary of the ’Doctor Who’ series!

Check it out below and let us know if the video made you wish the Classic Doctors were in ‘The Day of the Doctor’ as much as we do!

    I did not care for ‘The Day Of The Doctor’ – modern Who does not inspire me regardless of my affection for Matt Smith, but i laughed untill i Hurt after seeing this – Peter Davison rocked it.

    This was better than the “The Day of the Doctor.” It was fun, full of laughs and a sheer joy to watch. “The Day of the Doctor” was overwrought, as are most of the new Doctor Who story arcs. Give us more Peter Davidson!

    This (along with An Adventure in Space and Time) was THE REAL 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who. Bloody funny, chock full of references and cast members. TDOTD while very good was little more than an above average epsiode of NEW DOCTOR WHO!

    I want THE FIVE-ish DOCTORS REBOOT on DVD NOW complete with the making of extras, deleted scenes and interviews.

    And I think Peter, Colin and Sylv work marvelously together – they should do more. The are the funniest thing I’ve seen in ages. So how about it guys. A sitcom about three aging pommy actors (playing themselves) who get into all sorts of strife. I’d watch that!
