'Sherlock' Meets 'Doctor Who'

By Dave Bouressa

The internet has officially exploded. Sherlock Holmes, played by Benedict Cumberbatch, has officially stepped foot into the TARDIS and faced the Doctor head on.

This seems like it is perhaps the greatest thing to come out of Moffat-ruled BBC, right? That is until you slowly start to realize that it's completely fake. Once the Doctor and Sherlock begin having a conversation with each other, you realize that they are saying lines that have previously been said in their respective show. Although the dialogue fits perfectly and is perfectly edited, any person familiar with either series will begin to recognize that lines are said in the exact same inflection, and the characters mouths begin to look digitized.

This INCREDIBLE mash-up video comes to us by John Smith, the youtube channel that brought us the incredible believable-but-very-not-real Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Trailer. 

(If in 3D, hover the mouse over the gear in the bottom right of the video, and turn off 3D)

As heartbreaking as it is to learn that this is in fact, fake, one can only hope that Steven Moffat decides to do a one-off video/episode pitting these two together. The BBC would literally implode on itself. But until then, be sure to keep an eye out for what this incredible youtube channel has to offer us in the future...
