"You mean you're deliberately choosing to go on the run from your own people, in a rackety old TARDIS?"
"Why not? After all, that's how it all started."
-- Tegan Jovanka and the Fifth Doctor, Doctor Who: "The Five Doctors"
Celebrating the 54th Anniversary of Doctor Who, my partner in time Jesse Jackson and I are back with a new episode of Next Stop Everywhere: The Doctor Who Podcast! In this episode, Jesse and I review "The Five Doctors", the 20th Anniversary Special from the original series of Doctor Who, starring Peter Davison as the Fifth Doctor, Jon Pertwee as the Third Doctor, Patrick Troughton as the Second Doctor, Richard Hurndall as the First Doctor, Janet Fielding as Tegan Jovanka, Mark Strickson as Vislor Turlough, Nicholas Courtney as The Brigadier, Elisabeth Sladen as Sarah Jane Smith, and Carole Ann Ford as Susan Foreman!
This time, Jesse and I discuss things like Jesse screwing up the schedule to go see Thor: Ragnarok, the universe balancing the tragedy of John F. Kennedy's assassination with the debut of Doctor Who, reactions to the Thirteenth Doctor's costume, Tom Baker and Christopher Eccleston's reluctance to return to Doctor Who, Frazer Hines' reduced role forcing a reshuffling of Doctor and companion pairings, the Doctors not getting along with one another, the missed opportunity of not having the Eighth Doctor in "The Day of the Doctor", the great pairing of the First Doctor with Tegan, Jesse's dislike of Tegan and the First Doctor, the Master's motive for going into the Death Zone to help the Doctors, the Master revealing that he and the Doctor were at the Academy together, Borusa suddenly being revealed as a bad guy, Rassilon's immortality trap, the Fifth Doctor ducking out of being Lord President, my Reverse the Reverse the Polarity segment, new feedback from Paul from Australia, wanting to see the return of the Raston Warrior Robot in the modern era, teasing Episode 100, and more!
