Rec: The Five(Ish) Doctors Reboot
The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot is a Doctor Who 50th anniversary thing some of the Classic Who series actors did in co-ordination with the rest of the 50th anniversary stuff. It's a little over a half-hour long and written and directed by Peter Davison, who played the Fifth Doctor. Hilarious and touching, with some mind-blowing cameos from unexpected places. There is stuff in the credits too so stick around.

It's currently available internationally for free through the BBC here, or through BBC iPlayer for those with UK IP addresses.

It's not (yet?) available for purchase through iTunes, though there are a whole lot of goodies available in addition to the 50th Anniversary episode and the Docudrama about the beginnings of the show that was scripted and produced by Mark Gatiss, and some little things may still be available for free there, so check if there is a section for BBC programming in your country's version of iTunes.

Have you seen the Mark Gatiss docudrama (Adventures in Time and Space)? I'm not a massive Whovian, and don't generally watch much in the way of documentaries, but my brother recommended it and it absolutely blew me away. I can't recommend it highly enough. One of the best things I've seen on TV in a long time! (Along with Day of the Doctor. Obviously.)

Watched it together with a bunch of friends after the episode and agreed. I only didn't mention it because I thought Five(ish) Doctor's was less well advertised and could use a signal boost. :-)

Finally got to see the Peter Davison show and thought it was absolutely hilarious! John Barrowman turning out to have a wife and kids (wink snigger) was particularly funny!

I get the feeling John Barrowman might have suggested that part himself. He seems to be a bit os a prankster like that.

It was kind of hard to have them in directly since they don't look like their former selves anymore, but I have heard that they [Spoiler (click to open)]recorded new lines for use over the old footage used during the 13 Tardises scene.
