Product description

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.

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
