Doctor Who thing: Doctor Who’s Line Is It Anyway?


Reader Sherry writes:

My boys were watching cartoons on Cartoon Network tonight when they started hollering at us to come in and see. On Mad there was a Doctor Who spoof with Whose Line is it Anyway? I included the link below as I couldn’t find the actual show on You Tube or Cartoon Network right now. Thought you would like to see it.

Sherry’s link is to an article about the sketch at TV Guide, which includes this tidbit:

“Knowing that the Doctor Who series is marking its 50th year celebration by bringing the two most recent Doctors together in a special, we figured MAD needed to bring them together first in a special way that only MAD could get away with,” says producer Kevin Shinick. “Pairing it with Whose Line Is It Anyway? is a dreadful and ridiculous idea, so we knew we were on to something.”

This clip also appears at TV Guide (it’s unclear whether this is the whole sketch or not):

Alas for Shinick and the MAD folks, this is indeed pretty dreadful.

UPDATE: I found another video at Cartoon Network, with more material than the clip above. Unfortunately, it’s available only to U.S. IP addresses. Fortunately, you’re not missing anything if you can’t see it.

(If you stumble across a cool Doctor Who thing, feel free to email me with a link.)

I saw the video posted here a couple days ago. I thought it was awful then, sadly the longer version doesn’t get any better. Message at end of video seems to imply that there’s more if user logs into site. Unfortunately user has to have TV provider to log in. I only have internet, no cable TV. Seeing this bad video & other clips of bad TV reminds why I wouldn’t have cable even if I could afford it.

There’s a much better Doctor Who parody on YouTube. It’s a lovely collection of fan made videos by Mike Horner called The Timey Wimey Puppet Show.
