It’s the Doctor Show!

Every so often something Doctor Who themed and fantastic goes viral on the web – and this week it is this absolute gem above.

If you haven’t worked out what’s going on, that’s the various major characters of The Muppet Show dressed as major Doctor Who characters. All of the Doctors are there, along with key companion’s from across the show’s almost 50 years.

Speaking personally, I find this totally cool in so many ways. I was a big fan of two things in my younger years – Doctor Who and The Muppets, and even now I have a workable Kermit the Frog – so you can see why I’m loving it so much, from the Fourth Doctor and Romana to Ace and the Eighth Doctor. Some of the character choices might seem unusual – the Swedish Chef as the Brigadier, for example – but really they’re all absolutely perfect.

Can you spot Jamie McCrimmon, or the Ninth Doctor? What do you think of Rose Tyler’s new look, or that of Adric?
