You'll need a DVD copy of The Five Doctors to get the most out of it.
Following the commission of Torchwood, which is, of course, an anagram of Doctor Who, the BBC have commissioned even more spin-off shows to complete the collection and ensure R T Davies a place at HappyDale, where every lunatic is a clean one:
Cohort Dow: Featuring Mickey as the sly Dowager who plots to overthrow the British government by hacking into the UNIT website every week and sending rude jokes to the Prime Minister.
CrowdHoot: Featuring a group of barn owls, one of which may have hooted in The Empty Child, but you'll have to wait 13 weeks to find out!
Cord, Oh Tow: Featuring the Tow Truck rope which featured in The Parting of The Ways as it tries to make it in London as an actor.
Cord, Oh: Two: Spin-off series from Cord, Oh Tow, where the gear stick finally breaks free and vows to seek enlightenment from a life of travelling around breaking into TARDISes.
Cot, Oh Word!: A prequel series featuring the Doctor's adventures as a Time Tot.
'How, Doctor?': Spin-off featuring every single companion who has ever asked the Doctor an inane question.

The BBC have announced that the final three episodes of the new Doctor Who series will be destroyed before they are even transmitted.
A BBC statement said: "For the fans who complain that the series isn't as good as it was in the 60's and 70's, we will be wiping the final three episodes as soon as they leave the edit suite. This way fans can debate whether they were ever any good or not for years".

The BBC has defended its decision to ask the Government for a 2% above inflation increase in the number of hours in the day. Director General, Mark Thompson, stated that this was needed if the BBC was to honour its commitments and broadcast all of its planned Doctor Who output, which includes both the main parent show and all 18 spin-offs - including the recently announced Torchwood.
A pressure group who campaigns on behalf of the vulnerable in society said, "Pensioners will be hardest hit as they are already struggling to fill even 24 hours. There's only so much Last of the Summer Wine and crochet a human being can handle in one day."
The other Doctor Who spin-offs currently include:

Filming continued late into the evening at The Fitzroy Tavern, on Thursday night. The show's regulars where no-where to be seen as I gathered that this particular sequence is from the pre-credits opening of episode 4.
In a basement room there was a presentation on xml, mysql and php going on. I believe that this elaborate looking coven, who were huddled around the PowerPoint presentation, are key to the entire episode as they're attempting to use the natural lay lines (that also happen to be the pipes that transport the beer from the cellar to the pumps) that run beneath the boozer to call forth some terrible evil.
The inside of the bar had been completely re-dressed as there were beers on sale that I've never seen in any other pub. One of them was called Ayingerbrau and had a be-whiskered giant of a man on the pump. I later found out that this was connected to the main threat of the episode.
Also spotted were Jeremy Bentham, Rob Shearman and Steve Moffat. I understand that the major enemy of the piece, who is called The Ayingerbrau, will be played by these three men in a foam rubber suit, with Bentham taking the head and torso and Shearman and Moffat a leg each.
As the night wore on, and vodka was taken to equalise the effect of the terrible lager being consumed, the monster made his appearance and slowly consumed groups of men. But as no-one actually talks or notices anyone outside of their own group there was no reaction as slowly, one-by-one, each group was consumed by the monster.
There was then a terrible grinding and churning sound. No, I'm afraid this wasn't the TARDIS arriving, just people being very, very ill indeed through beer consumption.
The producers of Doctor Who are facing a huge legal battle as Roger Hancock, acting on behalf of William Grantham (age 9), has refused the BBC permission to use the Abzorbaloff in an upcoming episode.
The winner of the Blue Peter Design a Monster competition was due to battle David Tennant's Doctor until talks between the BBC and Grantham, who created the Abzorbaloff, broke down over issues of editorial control.
Grantham claimed that the BBC were trying to ruin the Abzorbaloff brand by making him both gay and mauve. "The other kids at school will make William's life a misery and the experience will probably scar him for life," said Mr Hancock, with a protective arm around the young designer's shoulder. "That will cost the BBC at least another ten grand".
But don't worry, The Sun are on the case and they plan to launch a 'Save the Green Blobby Sumo-Thing!' campaign in tomorrow's edition.
Stephen Fry, the writer of the Abzorbaloff episode, is said to be furiously re-writing his script so it can include Sad Tony instead (see above). "Marvellous," he said.
Russell T Davies has been quick to reassure the fans: "Sad Tony is a farting alien with a trunk shaped like a giant penis. I can't believe we didn't go for him in the first place!"
Rik Waller is reported to be gutted.

Part Two coming tomorrow...
'The Web Planet' DVD has been delayed for a month. This is because of clearance and classification problems at the BBFC; the panel couldn't stop laughing long enough to write their report.
Tachyon TV can also exclusively reveal the final details for the long-awaited Doctor Who 2005 boxset:
The BBC have discovered two "missing" episodes of Doctor Who sitting in a cupboard at Television Centre.
The cupboard, which was "hidden" in a room called 'The Doctor Who Room - Beware of the Leopard', was found to contain two episodes from 'The Faceless Ones'. Bizarrely, fans are still said to be ecstatic.
This discovery (by a cleaner) is only marred by Ian Levine's recent admission that he left a copy of 'The Power of the Daleks' on a bus in the late 1970s.
