@dayoftheFishDr Finally Explained?

You may have seen mention of @dayoftheFishDr on Twitter, Facebook, even here. But what is it all about? Well, let’s just say it’s a big part of the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who

Well, the image above should have cleared things up – it’s The Five(ish) Doctors – Reboot, a fun anniversary project with former stars of Doctor Who, such as Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy… and others.

Here are some clues from the Twitter account:

As to what it is exactly… well, Peter Davison isn’t unknown for his forays into comedy.

    Perplexed. That’s what I think. :D

    These forays into comedy for which Peter Davison is not renowned:- include Holding the Fort and Sink or Swim do they?

    And yes, I realise that this exposes me to comments a bout the comic merits of those two series…

    • On the other hand, All Creatures Great is hilarious at times, largely thanks to PD.

        I think they all did a wonderful job on this.

        I was expecting some kind of cheapo five minute shaky cam sketch and instead we got a full half hour of wonderfulness.

        It may sound bizarre but part of me feels that getting this instead of an appearance from 5,6 and 7 in the special itself is a decent trade off!

        All that and we got RTD, I mean Russell “The Davies”, as well.

        Simply fab!!

    This was just great. I had a great laugh and I just wish they’ll sometime put it on dvd. I just love it that they’ve managed to include so many other people. If the day of the Doctor was a spectacle, than this truly was an homage to all fans. I think both RTD and the Moff did a wonderful job too.

      Well if this doesn’t appear on the Day of the Doctor DVD I am going out with my placard to protest.

      I’m just not sure where…..
