Peter Davison’s uproarious Doctor Who spin-off will return, according to Paul McGann…

In all the explodey-wodey excitement of the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary last November, one spin-off won the hearts of many viewers – The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot.

Fans of Peter Davison’s comedy gem, which united several former Doctors in a side-splitting quest to re-join the show, will be thrilled to hear that a sequel is happening.

According to reports from Eighth Doctor Paul McGann’s appearance at an event for Cambridge students, the Five(ish) Doctors onscreen reunion has already begun production.

McGann, who also returned for the terrific short The Night Of The Doctor, offered no thoughts on time-frames, but as a project involving multiple Time Lords, they could well be filming it next week, in the distance future or back in 1822 for all we know.

What we do know is that more screentime for former Doctors can only be a good thing. And the fact that the BBC are presumably supporting the project raises interesting questions on whether they would commission any other spin-offs or one-off reappearances.

In what sounds like an interesting interview, McGann also admitted that he had been hoping to see a female Doctor after Matt Smith’s departure from the show, suggesting Tilda Swinton and Diana Quick for the role.
