Star In A Reasonably Priced Tardis

If you live in the UK you probably love both Doctor Who and Top Gear. If so, Click here.

Here’s what it’s all about:

A fun idea by two BBC staff members has resulted in a hilarious mash up of Doctor Who and Top Gear.
Inspired by his colleague Simon Catt, Matt Taylor of the BBC’s Repeats & Reversioning team had the idea of combining David Tennant’s appearance in Top Gear’s Star In A Reasonably Priced Car slot with clips of the TARDIS in flight from Doctor Who.
The result – with Jeremy Clarkson talking Tennant through his spectacular ‘lap’ in the Space/Time machine – so impressed their boss Gill Holmes, that it found its way to Mark Harrison, Head of the BBC’s Multiplatform Studio and then to Peter Salmon, Chief Creative Officer of the BBC Vision Studio.
Coincidentally, Peter was due to visit the Top Gear team this Wednesday, and showed the clip to Clarkson and Top Gear’s Executive Producer Andy Wilman. They loved it and agreed that it could be put online.
