The Comic Relief parody is non canon and has nothing to do with the 1963 series, the 1996 TV movie and the 2005 revived series. Rowan Atkinson is the unofficial 9th incarnation of The Doctor. When the series returned in 2005, Christopher Eccleston was cast as the official 9th Doctor Who. See more »

This parody, originally aired on Red Nosed Day as a 4-part skit, is now available in the US as a two-part story on VHS, along with additional footage on the making of, and some interesting extras, and is well worth the purchase.
Rowan Atkinson is brilliant in his very Tom Baker-ish portrayal of the Doctor, although I do detect a hint of Sylvester McCoy. Jonathan Pryce is hilariously sinister as the Master, bringing much Roger Delgado to the role.
The show pokes good-natured fun at the original series, especially the infamous "I'll tell you later" asides that are never explained.
Worth a look by all Dr. Who fans.
