Sylvester McCoy stars in a strange Dr Who type thing
Do You Have a License to Save this Planet? is a comedy short film released in 2001 to mark the 10th anniversary of BBV Productions. A parody of Doctor Who, the film stars Sylvester McCoy as "The Foot Doctor" and pokes fun at BBV's stock in trade -- making unofficial Doctor Who-related video productions featuring licensed alien races such as the Sontarans, yet never being allowed to use The Doctor himself. What do you get if you cross a Krynoid with an Auton, Sontaran and a sombrero wearing Cyberon with a penchant for fine wines and Ex-cell-ent conversation? On the other hand you could have landed yourself in the middle of the Licensed Reality Corporations' ™ attempt to wipe the stain of the Foot Doctor from the bottom of Accepted Canonicity. Packed full of strange whizzy things, blue swirly things, and more than its fair share of spoons, "Do You Have A Licence To Save This Planet?" brings SYLVESTER McCOY into battle against some of the most fearsome (as seen on BBCTV's DOCTOR WHO) monsters of all time. Armed only with a duffle coat, an umbrella and a patented Sylvester-o-matic-talk-them-to-death-o-tron THE FOOT DOCTOR has come to save the universe once again. He's back. And it's about feet.
