I understand it was done for the love of it benefiting the CiN charity... but imagine what could have been done if it was given a proper budget and a full length running time of a regular episode (better yet, make it a two-parter)... But hey, I am pleased we got this, even though it is only 8 minutes or so.

Absolutely brilliant. Loved every minute of it (a little under 8 minutes, I believe). I do hope this meeting will become so popular that it will urge the producers to push for a full 40+ minute episode with Peter and David.

But you want to know what I really loved about this mini-episode? Despite the jokes, it wasn't the usual bickering and whatnot we've seen in past multi-doctor stories. By the final minute of the story, the doctors did truly seem to like each other. I've been waiting for that to happen all my "Doctor Who lovin'" life.

My other heart turns black when forced to think about Dimensions in Time. The only person to come off well in that disaster was Pertwee. Even when having to deliver silly dialogue, Jon tackled the role with the same warmth and respect we had come to expect over the years. He truly loved playing the Doctor and it still showed.

That was genius. The chemistry between the Doctors was spot on. Peter Davison was MY Doctor too and seeing his name in the opening titles bought a lump to the throat.

Btw, you may have seen on OG that CiN got viewing figures of 9.4 million, peaking for the Two Doctors segment at 10.9 million! It may turn out to be the most watched piece of tv of the year!

Now, if that isn't an incentive to RTD for a proper multi-Doctor story next season, I don't know what is!

God, I really loved this. I felt like I was 15 years old again with my Peter Davison Doctor Who poster still taped up on my wall. Memories just kept flooding back. Although Tom Baker is my favorite Doctor, Davison is a close second. I remember his era as the height of my being into the Doctor Who fandom.

For a Children in Need special, this story fit perfectly into the spot between Season 3 and the Christmas special and was done with heart, emotion and all the right stuff.

Perfect!

The reference to the 5th Doctor's glasses surprised me a bit. I don't think I ever saw the Doctor wear glasses during the Davison era, but then Davison is probably the Doctor I've seen least of.

Well that was lovely.

You could really tell Tenant wasn't acting during the last part. "You were MY Doctor."

Well he was MY Doctor too. I started with Baker, watched all of his, and when Davison came around, he made such a refreshing change that he really became MY Doctor.

Nothing against any other Doctor, it's just that Davison hit a nerve with me, and some of his melancholy at the harshness of the universe rubbed off on me. No longer was the Doctor all smiling teeth and cockyness - now he was contemplative and when things went wrong he felt sorry. He felt the universe, he didn't just skip over it.

This was a great episode to see. Still the whole "Oh, you're a fan" thing was a bit meta-humorish, as was the "You've changed the desktop theme", but funny nonetheless.

Now the question is, when they re-air the final episode of last season, will THIS be the end, or will it be the other end, without Davison? I think it should be THIS end, but hey, that's not likely is it?

Last year's injected itself at the right time. This one inserted itself into something we've already seen, and I'm thinking they shouldn't have done that.

They should have started with the collision with the Titanic, and then have Davison appear and try to rectify the situation. That would have kept continuity up better.

But hey, who's complaining? I loved it.

Sean.

I agree that this gets even better on the second viewing, the first viewing is pure fanwank (sorry for being crude) and the next time (and time after that) you can enjoy what you know is there. It's great how many magic moments Moffat has crammed in, my wife isn't a fan of the classic series and she loved it too.

I reckon this mini-episode could be a good one to introduce New-Who fans to the classic series.

I really did love the special. If I had to pick who MY Doctor would be, it would probably be Tom Baker (shown on WTTW in Chicago in the early- to mid-80s) but I really enjoyed Davison and grew to love Pertwee as time went on.

After finding it and reading only the first page I'm amused to be so thoroughly reminded how people can willingly miss the point so completely, so they can continue to live in the world they pretend daily exists - the one without those icky things that make them squirm when they think about them. :-)

"It could just mean he has a wife. The Doctor was asking about one thing and the Doctor said 'oh, and there's this other thing'"

Like he'd say "No he hasn't got a beard... well, a three-car garage..."

I loved this. I simply teared up when 10 said, "you were MY Doctor." But then started overthinking it. I'm sure I've seen David in interviews saying Tom Baker was his Doctor. Perhaps I haven't remembered that accurately.

AFTER I finished overthinking the situation, my next thought was - It's Not Enough! I want MORE, please!

Now, I'll have to acquire it for my collection!

(by the way, compared to the other CiN specials this WAS brilliant! The Hotel Babylon seemed to fall like deadweight on the audience and Robin Hood's special left much to be desired as well. WAY too much Spice Girls from LA, not enough John Barrowman, and way too much Fearne for me!)

Wouldn't it be great if on Nov 23rd 2008, a Seven Doctor (Tennant, Eccleston, McGann, McCoy, Baker C, Davison, Baker T)special could be broadcast for the 45th Aniversary. Even if the older members were non-doctor characters, or voice-only parts.

I can relate to that. When I started watching Tom Baker was the Doctor but when Peter Davison came along he definitely felt more like *my* Doctor. Not my first or necessarily my favorite but mine.

I can't remember for sure, but I think the 10th Doctor is probably a variant and in this set, the 5th Doctor is wearing his decorative vegetable (which he wasn't on the regular, recent release). His trousers look a bit more Pimmsy too (but that could be the photo).
