Abstract: By combining the linearization method with Dougall's sum for well-poised $ _5F_4$-series, we investigate the generalized Watson series with two extra integer parameters. Four analytical formulae are established, which can also be used to evaluate the extended Whipple and Dixon series via the Thomae transformation. Twelve concrete formulae are presented as exemplification.
