Product Description

From Amazon.co.uk

For an entire generation who hid behind the sofa during the scary bits, jokes about Doctor Who are almost inescapably funny. The Curse of Fatal Death, an extended sketch for Comic Relief, stars more unlikely actors and comedians as the Doctor than anyone could have imagined plausible--Rowan Atkinson, to begin with, and both Hugh and Richard E Grant. The last-named performance indeed gives one uncomfortable thoughts about roads not taken...as does Jonathan Pryce's remarkable tribute to Roger Delgado as the Master. The tape is filled out with an informative "Making Of" tape and three Doctor Who-related sketches by Victoria Wood and Jim Broadbent, by Lenny Henry and by French and Saunders--this last sketch, never before shown, with French and Saunders as extras playing reptilian aliens, is particularly hilarious. --Roz Kaveney

Product Description

Comic Relief spoof of the long-running science fiction series. The Doctor (Rowan Atkinson) and his fiancée Emma (Julia Sawalha) land on the planet Tersurus, where old foe the Master (Jonathan Pryce) has laid a deadly series of traps for them. But where do the Daleks come in? And why do they have chairs in their spaceship when they don't need to sit down? And don't the Master's etheric beam locators look a little like... well, like breasts? Also included are a behind-the-scenes documentary and hilarious 'Who' sketches from Victoria Wood, Lenny Henry and French and Saunders. At least £2 from the sale of the video will go to Comic Relief.

4.0 out of 5 stars For all lovers of classic Dr. Who 26 Oct 2011
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
This is absolutely great watching, and listening. Only lovable and memorable series get great spoofs made, and The Doctor obviously deserves one. I loved the Master act (excellent nasty laugh), the included time travel and obviously the lovely same corridors.

And don't forget we even get the Daleks here, answering questions that I have always wondered about when I was a child. I mean, why do they always change their mind at the last minute about exterminating him and his friend? And nice Daleky Daleks they are. An excellent piece of work.

Well fellow Doctor fans, it's all there. The crashing synthesisers. The maniacal laughter. The bad sets. The corridors.The plot twists. The Master. The Daleks. The drama. The tension! This little effort is a gem that the Doctor would wear proudly, and better still its all in a good cause. A loving satire that will have every true fan rolling on the floor. A magnificent tribute to a genre that will hopefully never die...I won't spoil it by telling you the end, but let me just say that Joanna Lumley gets my vote. As for the rest of the tape, its devoted to Doctor sketches by other greats of British comedy, and its just as good. French and Saunders were clearly connoisseurs. Highly recommended.
