Been so long since I've seen this that I had forgotten how all the companions were pretty much reduced to bystanders.

Of course they didn't have much to do because all the doctors were not given much to do, that is of course what made it great for riffing, a whole lot of time spent doing very little.

I don't remember ever seeing The Two Doctors, but The Three Doctors was a much better multi doctor story.

too bad they won't be releasing a VOD,
They have officially said they aren't able to release it as a VOD? That's too bad. I'll definitely check out the rerun next Thursday then.

Well, if they are going to release it on MP3 commentary, any idea where I can get a copy of the episode in question?

It's on DVD.  Easy peasy.  iTunes too, I think.  FWIW, they riffed the Special Edition version.  The DVD has both editions on it.

The movie was about twenty minutes too long but that's the way it goes.

That was actually the extended version of The Five Doctors, and like many extended versions, it mainly just shows you why those parts were cut in the first place.

My God, a kind of director's cut, eh? Well, I can imagine they cut a lot of the bowl cut fur-wearing Dr. Who wandering through corridors. Oh, but when that three stooges riff finally came it made it so worth it. What a classic live show!

Just mumble it to yourself as you skip across and you'll be fine.

I think it was supposed to be the rows or something, the master seemed to jump to certain rows, but then the doctor just walked across normally without setting anything off.

Yeah, I really didn't understand the "solution" to that "puzzle".  I think the writers figured if they threw in a math reference, people would just assume that the Doctor was a genius who knew a lot more than the rest of us, or something.

I know they said they couldn't release the VOD, but I really hope they at least release the MP3 like they've done with other proprietary live shows!

I suspect Thrashalla is sick of going on about an mp3 of it.

I couldn't get to the truly live show.. it was the same day as the first day of Gencon.  I did see the encore the next week though.  It was so-so.  The short about electricity was fantastic; I hope they release downloadable version of that soon.

I fell asleep during the main feature.  I always fall asleep during the live shows.  I'm perfectly capable of staying up until 10 PM at home, but I guess the darkness makes me sleepy.  I only managed to stay awake through the previous live show by chugging a coffee just before the show.
I'm not particularly religious, and I don't really like Muppets, but I do love word play.

I have the same thing going on, Pastor. I haven't stayed awake during a movie in so long that I really don't go to theaters anymore. In my case I'm just so tightly wound that when I slip into the escapism I relax and pass out.
