    This is a short put together by British impressionist Jon Culshaw, who does a brilliant Tom Baker. But I think it's an example of what someone could do under the current Trek Fan Film Guidelines.



    More time doesn't necessarily mean better quality or a better story. The trick is to work within a limited constraint and tell a story in the time you have. I'd suggest that fan productions look at skit writing as a means to do that (but not SNL, they don't seem to know how to really end a skit—LOL).

    EDIT: I made a mistake in the thread title. I meant to say "within 4 minutes or so" not "under 4 minutes." Never post while a bit tipsy! @GSchnitzer, can you help?!

    The official Dr Who YouTube Channel (BBC) even praised it in the comments section.
    They are great impressionists:



    I would not mind seeing Jake Dudman as the new Dr Who:

    Four minutes!? That's ages! What if I get bored, need a book, anyone for chess? Bring me knitting

    Culshaws been doing Tom for decades but his Pertwee is better, he looks like Jon. Dudman was perfect in his roles too

    But think how much better it could be if it was expanded to 90 minutes and used a million-plus dollars (pounds) of Doctor Who fan money!!!

    I'm sure there's a conman... er, entrepreneur out there somewhere that could make it happen!!!
