To Creamguide(Films) would go, must choose above, between, below. Join Chris, Craig and Proper Fan Jack as they wallow in the majesty of the greatest Doctor Who story ever told (oh yes it is): THE FIVE DOCTORS. And on the 32nd anniversary of its UK broadcast which, after all, is the big one! Turn it on as Hartnell appears and join in the sweary mockery of a programme so dear to so many generations.

THIS COMMENTARY IS RATED ‘A’
SPOILERS: Jack is a Proper Fan
1. On the Chicago PBS station WTTW and various other PBS stations on 23 November 1983. We imagine no one shouted “We’re number 1!” at those affiliate meetings like Faye Dunaway in NETWORK
2. 25th November over here. Where the people who actually paid for it live
3. Doesn’t exactly happen all the time but they still put special previews and stuff on at Comic-Con in America before we get them which is all wrong
4. It was shown on BBC One, one part a night between 14 August and 17 August 1984 at 6:15 p.m.
5. 1981 episode “Assassin”
6. And the only story with all the footage, out takes etc. still extant in broadcast quality
7. 7.7m viewers
8. 65 at this point
9. She was meant to be in it but the divorce put the mockers on that
10. And represented McGann when he got the gig
11. Which was the cliffhanger (ho ho) for one of the serialised episodes
12. VHS release was in 1985
13. The ‘Lifestyle’ department
14. If there is this is out of sync
15. This section was MOGGED
16. Or is it a bit of pineapple?
17. They’re all on Gallifrey, actually. ‘Proper Fan’
18. DOCTOR WHO: CYBERMEN. Keep it in mind for Christmas, Proper Fans!
19. What constitutes a Proper Fan (apparently):
1 – into Doctor Who by aged 8
2 – stayed loyal through the wilderness years
3 – know who Alister Pearson, David Burton and Gary Leigh are*
20. Keith Hodiak. Also in the telly Lion, Witch and Wardrobe which is quite a double
21. Virtual Murder was 1992
22. He wasn’t available apparently
23. Knightmare was 1987 onwards
24. Actually it was 1994
25. And the Doctors Latimer did indeed kick off in 1983
26. Released on VHS in 1985
27. And this was the first DVD release, in 1999
28. Made a bit of an arse explaining that. What we meant was that when Tennant says to Sarah Jane in School Reunion that he has regenerated half a dozen times since they last met, it was only five at that point (Baker, McCoy, McGann, Ecclestone, Tennant) cos she met Peter Davison in this. It’s six now cos of Hurt but that didn’t count then. Oh no it didn’t.
29. Neverwhere was 1996. Sir Lenworth was not attached
30. It says here Charles Gray was offered The Role Of Rassilon
31. It says here it’s only ‘jokingly’ referred to as the Flavia Theme. By whom we have no idea.
