Doctor Who, as he is credited in the video (his "real" name simply being "the Doctor"), battled Doc Brown in Doc Brown vs Doctor Who. The Tenth Doctor was portrayed by Nice Peter, but halfway through the battle, he was shot by a Dalek controlled by Doc Brown and regenerated into the Fourth Doctor, who was portrayed by George Watsky. The Fourth Doctor also made cameo appearances in Hitler vs Vader 3 and Bob Ross vs Pablo Picasso. In both, he remained portrayed by Watsky.

Information on the rapper

The Doctor is the protagonist of the popular British BBC science-fiction television series Doctor Who, which first aired November 23, 1963. The Doctor was introduced as a Time Lord: a time-traveling, humanoid alien who came from the planet Gallifrey, in the constellation of Kasterborous. So far, the Doctor has been officially portrayed by fourteen different actors, and one actress. When the Doctor is critically injured, he can regenerate his body, resulting in a new appearance and personality. In all incarnations, the Doctor travels the known universe in a TARDIS (Time And Relative Dimension In Space) to fight injustice. The Doctor has battled many enemies such as the Daleks, Cybermen, an evil Time Lord named the Master/Missy, Weeping Angels, the Silence, Silurians, Zygons, and many others. The Doctor has also allied with Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart, UNIT, and River Song, and have traveled with Sarah Jane Smith, K-9 (a robotic dog), Rose Tyler, Amy Pond, Rory Williams, Clara Oswald, and many others. In her present life, the Doctor travels with two associates, including Yasmin "Yaz" Khan from her most recent adventures.

The Doctor's tool of choice is the sonic screwdriver, a device shown to break codes, unlock doors, and otherwise manipulate matter in its immediate range. Also in the Doctor's possession is the psychic paper, a mysterious ID card that lets the Doctor imprint any identity required to overcome local authorities, just by having them glance at it. The Doctor is very just and noble, sometimes rescuing clear foes when they are in peril. The Doctor is also extremely compassionate towards his/her companions, but is not afraid to draw the line, returning them home if need be. Due to the immense popularity of the series, the fans of the show began to be called "Whovians".


Brilliant! An audio-visual aggressive rhyming contest where – oh, who am I? You, my friend, can just call me "the Doctor." I'm a Time Lord (a centuries-old alien) and I travel through time and space in a non-traditional time machine – the TARDIS, er, well, I guess to you it just looks like a 1960's-style British Police telephone booth. It's bigger on the inside. [A pretty-ish British girl runs by screaming, chased by some kind of creature.] Ah, that's just my latest companion – I'm always traveling with someone or another in a consistently platonic way. "Doctor Who", the television show based on my life, was produced by the BBC and has been running sporadically since the 1960's. Massive audiences tune in to watch me go toe-to-toe with enemies with low-budget special-effects like the Cybermen and the Daleks–who actually, really, had what looked like a toilet plunger as part of their design. As a Time Lord, I can regenerate if I'm critically wounded and "recast" myself with a new personality and physical form up to thirteen times.

Verse 1:

(Ooh!) Actually, if you don't mind, it's just "the Doctor".

Doesn't even really matter who.

Who am I even talking to? Oh yes, you!

The wannabe Einstein, minus the 'stache.

Travels through time, but with no class.

I'm saving the world while you dilly-dally.

You can't even invent a way out of Hill Valley!

And calm down, will you? Everything is going to be fine.

You're not going to tear any wonky holes in any fabric of space and time.

Actually, it's a lot more like a rug, really. (Oh well.) Never mind.

Let's just say there's an infinite number of me simultaneously kicking your ass with rhyme!


I'm going to die… (Doctor…)

At least, this version of me… (Doctor?)

Perhaps you'd like another… (Doctor…)

Prepare…to meet…your…

[The Tenth Doctor regenerates into the Fourth Doctor.]

Density! Hahahaha!

Verse 2:

I'm a mystical medical doc at the pinnacle, shifting my physical form!

You're a possibly pedophilic individual who should have never been born!

You got your knickers in a twist while you're sucking on my Piccadilly, but I'm a lot lot different,

'Cause you're a pitiful hillbilly hanging with an oedipal kid who's a bawk bawk chicken!

Verse 1 (re-looped):

(Ooh!) Actually, if you don't mind, it's just "the Doctor"…

[The Doctor uses his sonic screwdriver to switch off the battle and go to the end slate.]
