YMMV: Doctor Who: The Curse of Fatal Death


  • Hilarious in Hindsight:
    • The canonical Tenth Doctor also liked to lick things. He could also be easily described by his fans as "Cute, sexy and lick-the-mirror handsome".
    • Richard E. Grant would later go on to play the re-imagined Great Intelligence in Series 7, who functions as an Evil Counterpart to The Doctor.
    • The Doctor is able to regenerate past his thirteenth life thanks to begging from his companion, just like what happened later in canon (and penned by Moffat, as well).
    • Twelve tells the Master and his companion to keep an eye on the universe, "I've put a lot of work into it."
    • The Doctor falling in love with and then marrying his companion.
    • "The Doctor's Wife" confirms that regeneration gender-bending is possible. While the Doctor hasn't had one yet like in this parody, "Dark Water" revealed the Master has regenerated into a Time Lady. Her attraction to the Doctor has also escalated.
    • The new series even had farting aliens, albeit not as their primary method of communication.
  • Retroactive Recognition: The Tenth Doctor (Richard E. Grant) goes on to be the Doctor again for Scream of the Shalka (albeit as the Ninth), and was also in The Name of the Doctor, where his character threw himself into the Doctor's time line.
  • Fridge Brilliance: Although nobody ever actually follows up when they say "I'll explain later", circumstances usually lead to the answer. For instance, Emma asks the Doctor asks why the Daleks didn't kill them, why there's a chair prepared, and how Zektronic energy will allow them to take over the universe in a matter of minutes.
    • The answer for the first one and the second are that the Daleks needed the Doctor there to help in case something went wrong, which it did. Their justification of keeping him alive and compliant is quite sound.
    • Zektronic energy allows the Daleks to kill the Doctor and the Master in such a way that they can't regenerate or resurrect. Since the Doctor is their biggest obstacle, they have a lot of investment in this ability, which would allow them to steamroll Gallifrey and change the timeline so that they're unopposed.
