And the RiffTrax Live Mystery Title is...

Now that it's been officially announced, I can finally reveal that the RiffTrax Live Mystery Title is Doctor Who: The Five Doctors!

The special, which aired on the 20th anniversary of Doctor Who, brought together the series' first five Doctors (kind of) for a feature-length episode.  Tom Baker, who played the Fourth Doctor, declined to take part, so they cobbled together footage from an unfinished story, and made it so he was stuck in a time vortex.

Also, it isn't very good as a story.  Sure, it's neat to see the Doctors all together, but otherwise, this film is prime riffing material.  I am very excited about this, but at the same time I can understand that this news might be a disappointment to some.  This is where I would normally tell you to ease yourself with by watching the other two Doctor Who riffs, but those are unavailable at the time of writing.

So what do you think about this news?  Are you excited or disappointed?
