‘Doctor Who: Time Crash’: new new Doctor and new old Doctor

There’s a new Children in Need charity video from the Doctor Who folks. This one’s a missing scene between the end of the most recent series and the start of the new one (which begins on Christmas Day).

And how cool is this for me: It features my new favorite Doctor and my old favorite Doctor…

Thanks to reader Dylan for being the first one to get me the link.

My favorite line: “Out they come, the brainy specs! You don’t even need them — you just think they make you look clever.”

And it’s very sweet at the end. When Ten says, “You were my Doctor,” I bet that’s really David Tennant talking about watching *Doctor Who* when he was a kid — he would have been about 10 when Peter Davison took over…

Okay. Whew. Finally, a Doctor Who fix! Urge to shrill… fading… fading… RISING… fading… gone. Sigh. Wait. Wait a minute? No Tegan?! Urge to SHRILL RIS… (MaryAnn reaches across the spacetime continuum to b-tchslap poster) ack!

It got 11 million viewers, making it the highest-rated Who since ‘City of Death’ in 1979.

David has such a way with delivering dialogue, “You were MY doctor” (I had tears in my eyes). Glad he got to see another TimeLord even if it is himself after what he suffered at the hands of the Master.

It’s worth watching the Confidential for the scene too – here – David Tennant says “if my 11-year-old self could see this, he’d melt!”

I thought it was utterly brilliant and incredibly touching, as well as being very funny. They played off each other wonderfully well.

My favorite line:

“No, no beard this time. Well, a wife.”

All I can say is that I loved seeing both my past and current favorite Doctors on the scene together albeit for a brief 7 minutes but it was well worth it. So many good lines about the glasses and how #10 mentions how much of #5 he borrowed (the sneakers, the glasses, etc.). The bit about #5 being his favorite was a nice touch. I am also glad they put in the blurb about how the Titanic could have hit the TARDIS in the first place (of course there had to be repairs done which seemed to be done in record time). Looking forward to this being in the Series 4 boxed set as with the first CIN.

Oh this was so fun and funny and utterly sweet. Since I was introduced to Doctor Who with Christopher Eccleston and fell in utter adoration with David Tennent this was really fun for me.

Also…”No, no beard this time. Well, a wife.” Hysterical.

Great way to start a Monday morning.

This episode has been banned in the known galaxy for the gratuitous use of the word ‘Belguim.’ Although it is up for a very nice award for the word usage… ;)

Davison was so good, I’d love to have seen a full episode with him – on the other hand, so many full length TV show episodes aren’t even remotely as satisfying nor as rich with ideas as this little 7 minute number – a tribute to Davison, Tennant, Moffat and Doctor Who in general.

gratuitous use of the word ‘Belguim.’

Heh. That occurred to me, too. :->

i am not sure if i heard it before but it seems so familiar.

“to days to come…”
“all my love to long ago…”

are these lines used before, i mean in the old series.

“belgium” one of the most daring insults in known galaxy :)
