The Doctors Revisited – watch the trailers for the Doctor Who retrospective series

The BBC America documentary series is coming to the UK soon - watch teasers for Doctors One to Nine now

After revealing last week that Watch is to screen BBC America series The Doctors Revisited in the run up to the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who, we thought we’d give you a brief taster of the series in the form of trailers for each of the episodes aired so far.


Hailed by many fans as one of the finest programmes about Doctor Who, the 11-part serial focuses an episode on each incarnation of the Time Lord. It has been airing in the US since January – with one instalment shown each month, followed by an adventure featuring the Doctor in question – and will culminate with Matt Smith’s Eleventh in November, when the show celebrates its half-centenary.

Even fans on the other side of the Atlantic haven’t yet had a chance to look back at the tenures of Smith David Tennant, but you can watch teasers for the episodes focusing on Doctors One to Nine below.

The First Doctor: William Hartnell

“You knew you were watching a quite different show…”

The Second Doctor: Patrick Troughton

“It was Patrick Troughton’s Doctor Matt Smith fell in love with…”

The Third Doctor: Jon Pertwee

“For the first time we get a James Bond-ised Doctor”

The Fourth Doctor: Tom Baker

“I didn’t play Doctor Who, I was Doctor Who”

The Fifth Doctor: Peter Davison

“He’s instantly loveable and plays it with a kind of truthfulness”

The Sixth Doctor: Colin Baker

“A grandstanding show-off”

The Seventh Doctor: Sylvester McCoy

“We wanted to peel off an outer skin and create another mystery underneath”

The Eighth Doctor: Paul McGann

“What Paul McGann gives us is a re-set Doctor Who”

The Ninth Doctor: Christopher Eccleston


“The Ninth Doctor is the one with tremendous guilt”
