The Five Doctors-Part One! To lose is to win and he who wins shall drink! For no apparent reason The Others have decided to look at one of their favourite stories, The Five Doctors. As they discuss in this first part covering Part One & Part Two, this story really hit a sweet spot with them. It has influenced the technology they buy and seems to be a story that has been watched multiple times. This is probably a statement that applies to many fans of Doctor Who!
They discuss when this story was shown on PBS and how it was made available to multiple markets in the US on the anniversary date of November 23rd, 1983. It is an interesting discussion spanning various discussions about viewing habits, beta tapes, bowling and Totinos pizza. There is also discussion about what an older Doctor is like when they come back to a series that is no longer their show. What part of their character is resurrected in an anniversary adventure like this? It’s lovely and fun discussion that is not to be missed. Although not strictly a commentary, The Five Doctors is played in the background while the discussion is going on. The episodic version of The Five Doctors was used for this recording. We are The Others.
