Doctor Who’s become so popular that it’s becoming a fan-film maker’s dream. Just under a month ago, Doctor Puppet Episode 1 was released on youtube – this episode titled “The Red X.” In typically Doctor Who style, it combines humor, angst, and a little quirkiness to the mix. The only thing missing is the hilarious dialog coming from Matt Smith and David Tennant.
And isn’t the likeness uncanny??? This is one of the things I really miss as a child – a handful of shows that showed us the magic of puppetry. Granted I think this viral show is much more on the clay-mated side of TV, but it still represents something which we’ve lost in today’s television magic, which is so much of what Doctor Who represents at its core. Who ever started this show, you’re great! Keep it up!
