Editorial Reviews

Doctor Who: Three Doctors, The: Special Edition

The Doctor and UNIT are called upon to investigate strange events surrounding Dr. Tyler's research into cosmic rays. UNIT HQ comes under attack by an alien force, and the Doctor has no other option but to call on the Time Lords for help. The Time Lords, too, are under attack - from a mysterious power emanating from a black hole in space. With power reserves falling, the only way they can help the Doctor is to break the First Law of Time and allow him to help himself. The First and Second Doctors are lifted out of their time streams and sent to Earth to help the Third. Between the three of them, they must find a solution to the threat that not only endangers UNIT and Earth, but also the future of the Time Lords themselves.

Back in 1973, I was one year old. "Doctor Who" was ten. For its anniversary, the powers that be decided that a multi-Doctor story was a great idea, and so "The Three Doctors" was born.

The story focuses on Gallifrey being attacked by some unknown force. The Time Lords, having exiled the Doctor to Earth a few years before, decide to get him involved, but come to the conclusion that just one of him won't be enough. So they send the Second Doctor to Earth to help the Third, while the First gets stuck in a negative space wedgie (this was caused by Hartnell not being in good health at the time), and has to help from a television screen inside the TARDIS. Soon the TARDIS, the Doctor(s), UNIT, Jo Grant and a game warden all find themselves in an alternate dimension where they find someone familiar to all Time Lords...

This is, without a doubt, the best of the multi-Doctor stories. It's not as bloated as "The Five Doctors" and not as weird and overly-long as "The Two Doctors". Plus Pertwee and Troughton are both at the height of their game and do a wonderful job bouncing off each other.

In addition to all the special features from the original release of this disc, you will also get, as reported by a reviewer on Amazon's UK site:

* 'Making-of' documentary
* When Doctor Who Was Uncool documentary
* Episode encoding/authoring errors on original release fixed

So not a tremendous amount of stuff, but still good.

This is a great story, and a great recommendation for any fans of the series.

This 4 part episode arc was made in honor of the tenth anniversary of the series in 1973 during the 3rd Doctor's appearance. A mysterious black hole appears in the universe draining power from the Time Lords who are alerted by the 3rd Doctor played by Jon Pertwee after U.N.I.T. headquarters is attacked by a mysterious anomally trying to track the Time Lord for the long thought as dead Time Lord Omega. The Time Lords, realizing that they need some serious help decide to break their law concerning crossing time lines and enlist the help of the Doctor's previous selves played by an ailing William Hartnell and Patrick Troughton. The story line is fast and easy to follow as Pertwee and Troughton are taken to a place in the black hole that is ruled and controlled by the very thoughts of Omega plans to take his place in the universe by destroying the Time Lords and ruling supreme. The Doctors are joined by Jo Grant, the "Brig" Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart and U.N.I.T. Excellent story and one of the best adventures featuring the Doctors, the foot soldier monsters are a little kooky as they look like a mount of bubbled jelly but that doesn't even take away from the action.
I bought this dvd to introduce myself to the previous Doctors having started watching Doctor Who near the end of the Tom Baker years up to Sylvester McCoy and then starting again with Christopher Eccleston, David Tennant and now Matt Smith. A lot of people have their favorite Doctor but seeing these first 3 Doctors before Baker is a real treat. I love Hartnell's seriousness and grumpiness, Troughton's clownish demeanor and Pertwee's sophisticated interpretation of the Time Lord.

The picture is outstanding; the extras are very entertaining,. I have seen these landmark episodes a great many since 1986 when I taped it off the Austin PBS station. A lot of the episodes I had on VHS I have grown tired of but this dvd looks so good that I appreciate the show like new. A worthwhile special edition.

Classic Who Fans know that there as a certain rivalry between the Second Doctor (Patrick Troughton) and the Third Doctor (Jon Pertwee). How much of it was done for the camera we'll likely never know, as they've both passed on, as has the First Doctor (William Hartnell, who's briefly seen here). Done for laughs or actul rivalry, their differences is what makes this one of the better Classic stories. Each is used to being in charge, and as you'd suspect from two aspects of the same person, each has a different plan for solving the problem. How they come to a compromise and defeat the bad guys is part of the fun. A definite must for the Classic Who fan, and recommended for the New Who fan who'd like to get into the Classic Series, but isn't sure where to start. It doesn't require a lot of knowledge about either Doctor to understand what's going on.

Well here's another mixed bag of nuts for you to consume, and hopefully you won't have an allergic reaction from ingesting this. I'm not going to summarize these stories since any fan already knows them, and there is already enough redundant information available for those unfamiliar with this release.

I received this as a box set, Revisitation 3, and so I am posting this general review for all three singular releases since all the information is more or less the same for all three. Tomb of the Cybermen and The Robots of Death are the other two in this release.

To be fair, when it comes to picture and sound restoration, these have been significantly improved, and for many people, this alone makes these worth the purchase. But when it comes down to the specials, I'm a tough nut to crack. While yes, there has been some new bonus features added, some of the bonus features from the previous releases were omitted. So if you're getting this new set, and want to have all the bonus material that has been released, DON'T SELL YOUR OLDER RELEASES. Many of the recent DVD releases have been far short of impressive for bonus features, so not including everything from prior releases with new material is just sad. Also, if anyone is a geek about the text commentary like I am, these are usually up-dated in the Revisitation sets, but the originals are also omitted. Personally, I want it all. Just because the information on these previously released text commentaries are old, it doesn't make them any less interesting. After all, both new and old audio commentaries are available on the new releases when applicable, so why leave out an older text commentary? Can we say "marketing ploy?
