Overview
"I am being diminished, whittled away piece by piece. A man is the sum of his memories, you know, a Time Lord even more so..."

Someone is taking the Doctor's past selves out of time and space, placing them in a vast wilderness — a battle arena with a sinister tower at its center. As the various incarnations of the Doctor join forces, they determine that they are in the Death Zone on their home world of Gallifrey, fighting Daleks, Cybermen, Yeti... and a devious Time Lord traitor who is using the Doctor and his companions to discover the ancient secrets of Rassilon, the first and most powerful ruler of Gallifrey.

The Five Doctors was a 90-minute special feature created in 1983 to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of Doctor Who. The Special Edition of the story, created in 1995, features extended scenes, previously unseen sequences, new visual effects and a stereo soundtrack. For DVD, the sounds has been remixed in full six-channel Dolby Digital 5.1 format. Not intended as a replacement for the original edition of the story, this is an alternative version which uses state-of-the-art technology to embellish and enlarge one of the greatest Doctor Who adventures ever...
