Audience Reviews for Doctor Who - The Five Doctors

Doctor Who: The Five Doctors Starring: Peter Davison, Jon Pertwee, and Patrick Throughton Director: Peter Moffatt Someone has seized control of an ancient, long-outlawed Timelord device--the Timescoop--and they are using it to destroy the Doctor's personal timeline by removing his various past incarnations and placing them in the dreaded Death Zone of Gallifrey. Can the Doctor's current incarnation save his past selves, or will the sinister forces arrayed against them wipe him and the Timelords themselves from all of time? "The Five Doctors" was produced in 1983 as a feature-length special to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the "Doctor Who" series. It brought together virtually all the various companions that adventured with the Doctor, had Cybermen and Daleks a-plenty to menance them, explored the dar parts of a history the Timelords would like to forget, and had several Doctors bickering arrogantly with one another... almost becoming a greater threat to their success than the alien menaces roaming the Death Zone. And speaking of enemies, even the Master shows up, and for once he's trying to help his fellow Timelords instead of destroy them. If you loved the old "Doctor Who" series, I think you'll love "The Five Doctors." It's got a story that's among the best ever featured in the series--and that includes even the ones currently in production. The special effects are pretty awful, and the alien landscapes often look like the gravel pits they are, but that's really part-and-parcel with the classic "Doctor Who" experience. This film will not convert anyone to liking "Doctor Who," but I think it's worth seeing for fans of the old stuff.
