The 5 Doctors
While I haven’t watched The Five Doctors, I have had the “pleasure” of listening to Ash talk about it. The only story I can recall about this DVD is that they couldn’t get Tom Baker (A.K.A. “Doctor Scarf”) to participate. Instead, they used old clips of him in the show. The best part of this story is from when they wanted to do a group photo to promote the show. Ash wanted me to guess how they solved the problem with the missing Doctor, and I figured they had used a cardboard cutout because this was long before the days of Photoshop. I was wrong, but I was close. Ash said they used a wax model of Doctor Scarf in the photo and it made everyone feel awkward and uncomfortable!
