Did you really just call Doctor Who a parody or spoof in terms of using lens flares?

Wonder how many years we are going to be repeatedly hear about the lens flares, no one really cares and besides as JJ & Co say it makes it look more real and less wooden like the TV shows did.
No I said the Doctor Who episode A Christmas Carol did a parody spoof of JJ's Trek. I couldn't find the clip of the scene on Youtube so I tried uploading it. BBC WorldWide blocked it however.
Ah I see what you mean now, Ive never actually watched the whole episode (the only Who Christmas specials Ive managed to miss every time its on TV). Surely it wouldnt be termed a spoof though and more inspired by (as 'The Wormhole' has said its been confirmed to have been intended as) and not a spoof which would be more something the likes of Galaxy Quest did as an actual joke?

Fair enough on the lens flares, they have never bothered me but thats just my preference and everyones different.

^ Yeah Galaxy Quest is a good analogy.

White uniforms like ones from TMP
The passenger ship is called a galaxy class ship like the ENT-D
The uniforms are in fact based on costumes worn by the characters in the 1947 Doctor Who story The Ark in Space, and Doctor Who has been naming starships Galaxy class since 1973.
AH I need to go back and watch said episodes. I'm a fan of Classic Who. I ascribed the similarities from classic Who to Trek seeing how they were doing a gag based on Star Trek. Go points though Wormhole.

1975.

1947 is a little early for Who...

Well, it's too late for me to edit. I actually thought t was 1974, since it was Tom Baker's second story, but I guess I was wrong with that, and I'm too lazy to actually look it up right now.
