Good effort but must try harder

An uphill task trying to pull off a multi doctor story
By trying to please everybody it can turn into a hotchpotch of doctors and their most notorious enemy - the Daleks

It tries to involve doctor 5,6,7 &amp;8 but I think it dilutes things by trying too hard
And being all things to all people

So the writer gets my sympathy by being given a list of ingredients and being stuck with trying to make a delicious outcome

It has a bit for each doctor and sadly not really any sparklingly relationship between the drs meeting until a hastily tacked on bit at the end

I think things are handled much much better in the 50th anniversary story - 'the light at the end'

However I would recommend the five companions

As multi-Doctor stories go, this is pretty good. It had a temporally complex story to it that was actually both interesting and made sense, though it could be a touch confusing at times. Pretty impressive when you consider it's got 4 Doctors and it's only slightly over an hour long. Continuity-wise, the lack of any companions bugs me a bit but it would understandably turn the story into a train wreck to have half a dozen or so companions running around getting lost.

The Four Doctors is certainly not what you'd expect. The scene in which all four meet is very brief and obligatory with only the fifth and eighth Doctors having a meaningful interaction in the actual the story.

However, the story still works for it is as Colonel Ulrick finds himself travelling through the Doctor's timeline after making a fateful decision to make a deal to give technology to the Daleks in exchange for peace. It's an interesting story that finds Ulrick changing through encountering the Doctor and finally understanding the truth behind his people's history. It's a superb character piece and one of the better December bonuses.

I loved how all the doctors lives were intertwined with the Ill fated character of Captain Ulrich. The Dalek threat and the themes of this story were perfectly brought to life with amzing acting, music and a complicated, in a good way, plot. If you get the vhance, you really should subscribe and get this! You won't regret it!
