Comic Relief 2007, Catherine Tate/David Tennant  
I'm sure this has been seen by everyone and their dog in the fandom (except for me, until now) and I just have to ask: HOW HAVE I NOT SEEN THIS -- Comic Relief 2007 - Catherine Tate as Lauren Cooper and David Tennant as her English Teacher (nudge, nudge) -- BEFORE TONIGHT!??!?!?!?!?



I'd heard vaguely of the "Doctor who?" bit, but really knew nothing else. First of all I was just rolling based on Catherine's performance (any doubt I've had about adding her show to my Netflix queue is GONE!!!!!!!!!!), then David's accent *sigh* and then the Doctor Who riff, then "Lauren" throwing in the crack about Billie Piper and then him being the Doctor and making her a ROSE action figure (a power we've never seen the sonic screwdriver exhibit before!), and THEN him saying "A rose by any other name ..." Aside from the hilarity of it all, I couldn't help but get the hugest kick out of the fact that not only was Billie mentioned, not only was Rose (sorta) mentioned, but we saw a Rose "appearance," and it came across as kinda shippy!! I LOVED IT!!!

My favorite lines (Who-related):

    Lauren: Are you the Doctor?
    English Teacher (Doctor): Doctor who?

    Lauren: Did you just pitch up from Mars? (I liked that specifically because of Donna calling him a Martian, sigh, oh Donna!)

    Lauren: You know your house, right?
    English Teacher (Doctor): What?
    Lauren: Your house?
    English Teacher (Doctor): Yeah?
    Lauren: Is it bigger on the inside?

    English Teacher (Doctor): Can we get back to Shakespeare. So --
    Lauren: Do you fancy Billie Piper, sir?
    English Teacher (Doctor): You are the most insolent child I've ever had the misfortune to teach.
    Lauren: Thank you.

    Lauren (After flawlessly reciting Sonnet 130): Bite me, alien boy!

    English Teacher (Doctor) (After turning Lauren into the Rose action figure with the sonic screwdriver): A rose by any other name would smell as sweet ...
Oh, Lordy, this was unbelievably hysterical. Just hysterical. I love it so, so, so, so, sooooooooooooooooooo!!!

** Smushes it with love and joy and happiness **

I absolutely love that comic relief sketch. Catherine and David are hilarious and the Rose stuff (action figure!) is just epic.

It's just so awesome. I'm actually downloading it so that I can have a great copy of it because it needs to be saved and cherished to watch when one is in need of a smile and a laugh.

And the Rose stuff is awesome!!! SHIPPINESS!!!

Catherine Tate is clearly a shipper. God love 'er.

OMG!! Did she write that sketch!?!? If so, I think I may love her even MORE now!!!

(BTW: Have you had any time to work on that story idea, or are you still doing your current story?)

I'm not working on it at the moment because I have the plot bunny from hell to contend with, but I've been sketching out a few scenes, the prologue's written in my head and I have my ideas half sorted. It's in the pipeline, don't worry.

Oh, Lordy, this was unbelievably hysterical.

Innit, though? :D Have we got double English or double Scottish?

Hah!!! Just, too funny for words. I was almost crying, laughing so hard.

I don't have one yet, but I'm so making a Doctor/Donna icon. I so am!!! (Maybe using that still from PotO because I LOVE it so!!)
alexiscartwheel: dw - doctor and donnaalexiscartwheel on August 29th, 2008 02:09 am (UTC)
And it stays funny every time! Pure comedy genius.

I think I need a happy Doctor/Donna icon to go with the "OH NOES!" one. PotO is visually one of my favorites of the season. It's got pretty colors, and Donna looks gorgeous, so it's so much fun to icon. :)

You do need a happy one!! I love PotO, it's one of my faves of S4. I'm not sure which I like best: TSE, TL, Midnight or this one? I know that PiC and JE are battling for the spot below these four, but those four ... man, I loved 'EM!! Man, how much was I an RTD fangirl in S4, only one of the six he didn't write, LOL!
She was mean and she had seashells in her hair!: {dw} dd; need to do that more oftendollsome on August 29th, 2008 02:43 am (UTC)
THIS IS ONE OF MY FAVOURITE THINGS IN THE WORLD. It is probably sick how many times I've seen it. However, that's allowed, because I think it may be ACTUAL PERFECTION.

"I'm not Doctor Who, I'm your English teacher!"
ha, I showed this to my Mom and sister recently - they hadn't seen it either.

I loove DT's accent in this. When he gets all angry at around 3:20, his accent just...guh.

Best line - "Do you fancy Billie Piper, sir? ha, I really need to dig up some of the icons that were floating around after this came out.

this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apartvenefican on August 31st, 2008 05:00 pm (UTC)
Hi, I followed you over from time_and_chips (and I hope this doesn't make me sound like a huge stalker...) *waves*

I heart Catherine so very much, but my favourite part does have to be where she recites Sonnet 130 - my mouth ends up on the floor cause it's so perfect. 'Bite me alien boi!' kills me every time, oh yes.
