Watch Tenth Doctor Say Goodbye Logan Style

first_img HBO Max Scores Exclusive ‘Doctor Who’ Streaming RightsJo Tro Do Plo Plo No: ‘Doctor Who’ Welcomes Back Familiar Monster Stay on target Trade his sonic screwdriver for adamantium claws and regeneration process for self-healing powers, and you may find the Doctor and Wolverine aren’t so different.YouTuber VG934 makes a case for the kindred characters in a reimagining of Doctor Who‘s iconic “The End of Time,” styled like the cinematic Logan trailer.The video (below) expertly cuts the two-part BBC special broadcast with the Johnny Cash song “Hurt,” used to depict exhaustion, pain, and fear in the latest X-Men franchise story.Published in early December, the fan-made “trailer” equates an epic Time Lord battle with a near-future dystopia—each tale marking the end of a beloved personality: David Tennant’s final regular appearance as the Tenth Doctor, Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine swan song.Originally broadcast on Dec. 25, 2009, and Jan. 1, 2010, the Doctor Who Christmas/New Year’s special focused heavily on the Master (John Simms) and part-time companion Wilfred Mott (Bernard Cribbons), with appearances from a number of familiar faces (including Timothy Dalton as the narrator and Time Lord President). Like so many other holiday productions, the program ends with the Doctor’s regeneration, introducing Matt Smith and his chin.VG934’s clever revamp, however, isn’t the first appropriation of 20th Century Fox’s movie trailer. In October, Theta Sigma Productions released an adaptation of 2013 Christmas special “The Time of the Doctor,” set to the backdrop of Cash’s country hit. YouTube user Gallifreyforever97 did the same with series nine finale trilogy “Face the Raven”/”Heaven Sent”/”Hell Bent.”But it doesn’t take video-editing software and too much free time to recognize the similarities between the Time Lord and the X-Man. Two loners desperate for a friend, both have known love and loss; the Doctor and James “Logan” Howlett escaped a world at war to become heroes (or antiheroes, in the case of Wolverine).Logan is in theaters now; season 10 of Doctor Who returns to TV screens on April 15.last_img
