5 A Very Special Edition For The Five Doctors!Venkman | 25/02/2008 | See all Venkman's reviews (19)Top 100 DVD Reviewer If there's one story that deserves to be re-released on DVD, it's this. The Five Doctors was the first Doctor Who DVD ever released and designed to test the market at the time, as such it was completely bereft of special features, had a different packaging design to the rest of the range and most importantly the story included on the disc was the 1995 special edition and the original transmitted version has never been released on DVD. So appropriately in time for it's 25th anniversary, 2/Entertain are treating us to a two-disc special edition of this classic story, featuring both versions and loads of new extra's. Included in this package are two commentaries, one previously included on the region 1 release featuring Peter Davison and writer Terrance Dicks and an all-new companion commentary with Elisabeth Sladen, Mark Strickson, Nicholas Courtney and Carole Anne Ford. The main feature is a mammoth 52 minute documentary "Celebrations", presented by Colin Baker, which covers the making of this story and the show's twentieth anniversary year back in 1983. There's also a 25 minute doc on the links between the show's past and future in The Five Doctors, narrated by Paul McGann, a short feature entitled (Not So) Special Effects, behind-the-scenes footage of the studio recording sessions, Out-takes, various excerpts from Blue Peter, Breakfast Time, Saturday Superstore and Nationwide, plus the usual trails and continuity, isolated music score, PDF material, photo gallery, coming soon trailer, subtitles and production notes. As well as all that, there's a bonus feature marketed as the best easter egg ever, strongly rumoured to be a commentary for the story with David Tennant, Phil Collinson and Helen Raynor. And this DVD even comes in a fancy slip-case! So a packed set all-round and an essential purchase.
