A Doctor Who Series 1 Parody Promo That Mimics the Style of the Trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens

In tribute to the 10 year anniversary of the Doctor Who reboot and the new Star Wars film, superfan VG934 created “TARDIS Awakens“, a parody trailer for Series 1 of the show during which Rose Tyler (Billie Piper) met the short-hair, northern-accented, leather jacket clad Doctor (Christopher Eccleston), that copied the soundtrack, quiet pacing and the sleek style of the official promo for Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Over Ten years ago now (blimey, it feels like yesterday) Rose Tyler crossed paths with a madman in a box reopening a universe of adventure. On March 26th 2005, the TARDIS reawakened and Doctor Who was back on our screens. Just two months ago, Rey and Finn crossed paths with a smuggler, his furry sidekick, and an astromech droid reopening a galaxy of adventure. On December 18th 2015, the Force awakened and Star Wars was back on the big screen. Being the huge Doctor Who and Star Wars fan that I am, how could I resist the chance to bring these two massive franchises together?
