Yeah, it seems like everytime they re-release The Five Doctors
, someone tries to take a new stab at the Time Scop effect. I seem to remember that a few extra or extended scenes were added as well. The Master talking to the Third Doctor was longer, and maybe a longer scene with the Brig and the Second Doctor. I think they changed Rassilon's voice, too.
Hard to remember, I probably haven't watch the original version since the late 80s. Looking back, it's hard to believe that there were only 4 or 5 stories on VHS for years
... Revenge of the Cybermen
, Pyramids of Mars
, a heavily edited Deadly Assassin
(or was it Brain of Morbius
?), Robots of Death
, and after a few years, The Five Doctors
. Then, more drought. I don't even think they were sellthrough price at first. But I was lucky. We had a PBS station that was still showing it through the 80s and early 90s (and Blake's 7
!) and I had friends in the UK sending me tapes throughout the 80s for my PAL converter'd VCR.
glad to have all those VHS gone. Well, almost gone. Not until Kinda
