We gave it a B+

Mr. Bean in an update of the classic BBC camp sci-fi show? Yeah, it’s a joke. But Dr. Who: The Curse of Fatal Death is an awfully funny joke, with Pryce cackling silly lines like ”Your certain death is now certain!” and constant jabs at the series’ notoriously repetitive plots and low production values. Coupled with a clever making-of documentary, the sketch is a treasure for Doctor Who fans and a good primer for those who wouldn’t know a police call box from a Dalek (don’t ask). B+
