This Video Almost Convinces Us that American Doctor Who Actually Happened

Remember that awesome BuzzFeed article that laid out an almost-perfect alternate history of American Doctor Who? With Gene Wilder, Nicolas Cage, Sam Rockwell, and Jeff Goldblum (yesss) traveling through time and space as various incarnations of the Doctor?

Well, if BuzzFeed’s arguments weren’t enough to convince you, now savvy YouTuber Sam Vestey has cut together an actual reel of all of the Yankee Doctors. It’s like we’re reliving a half-century of this American television classic!

Masterfully combining footage from Moon, Community, Independence Day, Breaking Bad, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and so so so much more, Vestey brings us an excellent retrospective of the American Doctors. Check out the video below to enjoy pinstriped suits, doubles, tentacles, astronauts, darkest timelines, and of course disappearing phone booths. Also, a lot of dancing.

Can Vestey make a sequel starring the 11 picks for female American Doctors? Clearly he’s got his work cut out for him finding the right bit of 30 Rock footage (for Tina Fey)—or, if he’s going by our personal candidates, any Tilda Swinton film.
