Past met present via mini-episode Time Crash, all in aid of the BBC’s annual Children in Need event. And it was a corker.
At only eight minutes in length there was a lot to pack in. Due to Ten forgetting to raise his ship’s shield there was some sort collision between…blah, blah, blah. Who cares what the reason was: Classic Who and New Who finally met the way they always should have.
The return of Daleks, Cybermen, Macra and the rest were merely a teaser.
It was great to see Davison back as the Doctor and Tennant, thanks to Steven Moffat’s affectionate script, pitched his reaction perfectly. Now the precedent has been set, they could do a lot worse than adapting Cold Fusion in a few years time.
To days to come.
