Characters / Doctor Who: The Curse of Fatal Death

Alternate Ninth through Twelfth Doctors (Rowan Atkinson, Richard E. Grant, Jim Broadbent and Hugh Grant)

From the Comic Relief charity skit Doctor Who: The Curse of Fatal Death. A parody, not even remotely canon. Written by Steven Moffat, who lovingly references it in episodes on occasion now that he's actually in charge of Doctor Who.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Atkinson, very much in the mould of the later Blackadders.
  • Distracted by My Own Sexy: Richard E. Grant. "Result! Cute, sexy, and lick-the-mirror-handsome!"
  • Distracted by the Sexy: Emma's reaction to the Hugh Grant Doctor, "Result!"
  • Failed a Spot Check / Lethally Stupid: The reason he quickly ends up in his Twelfth incarnation;
    Twelfth Doctor: Oh dear, now look at that! I've gone and used up three whole bodies in under a minute and all because I forgot to unplug first, that really was terribly silly of me!
    • Retcon: It was later revealed in canon that this WOULDN'T have triggered more regenerations, as a Time Lord can heal any injuries sustained in the first few hours after regeneration. Never mind, does that make this more Hilarious in Hindsight?
  • Official Couple: He and his companion, Emma (Julia Sawalha) are engaged.
  • Retired Badass: Intends to become one, since he's saved every planet at least 27 times by this point.

In the last segment of the sketch, he regenerated several times, finally ending up as:
