All five Doctors (Peter Davison, Patrick Troughton, Jon Pertwee, Richard Hurndall and Tom Baker) and many of their old companions are taken out of time and deposited in the Death Zone on Gallifrey. There they must battle not only the Master, but Daleks, Cybermen and Yeti in order to reach the Dark Tower and discover the Tomb of Rassilon.

This special edition includes new special effects and extra footage not included in the original broadcast. Other extras include:

  • Celebration – a documentary – presented by Colin Baker – recalling the making of, and publicity surrounding, the Five Doctors. The director, Peter Moffat appears, one last time before his death in 2007, and there are anecdotes from Elisabeth Sladen, Peter Davison, Janet Fielding and the writer Terrance Dicks.
  • The Ties that Bind Us is a much shorter documentary – narrated by Paul McGann – looking at the Five Doctors’ links to other Doctor Who story, with a montage of clips to illustrate what makes this show so special.
