This is a send up of fan-aticism, by pros who are fans themselves. I still can't believe they got Peter Davison to do this. In its understanding of fan-nature, it is not far behind William Shatner's famous appearance on Saturday Night Live, in the Star Trek convention sketch. As a Fifth Doctor fan-girl, I can happily watch this over and over and over. I would rather not say why. :) I have heard that this is captioned incorrectly for one line of dialog. Mark Gatiss is not saying 'Oh my god' on being suddenly awakened, but is referring to the villain from 'The Three Doctors' and 'Arc of Infinity'. This short film is included with the extras as one of the sketches on the William Hartnell DVD, Doctor Who: The Beginning Collection box set.
