Affectionate Digs at Doctor Who
Contributions from 1999’s Doctor Who night include some marvellous sketches from Mark Gatiss and David Walliams, including a brilliant send up where they play two obsessive fans who have kidnapped Peter Davison (played by the man himself!) and one alternate version of Doctor Who where Gatiss IS the Doctor.
Other treasures include The Misinformation guide, a candid look at the alternative history of Doctor Who that includes some very unfamiliar faces and a whole new concept for the series!
There’s the Spike Milligan Dalek sketch, which depicts a Dalek coming home from a hard day’s work for dinner with his wife. This includes some brilliant one liners.
Also in the mix is a comedy sketch produced by Reeltime pictures back in the 90’s. It looks at an alternative behind the scenes genesis of Doctor Who and features one or two familiar faces including voice of the Daleks, Nicholas Briggs.
Head over to the website now and prepare to have your ribs tickled as you watch some of the funniest Doctor Who send ups that you could wish to!
