What if…

The Doctor never escaped the Land of Fiction?

The Master of the Land of Fiction is content. All his stories have their happy endings. The Mechons are always defeated, the Cyberons always vanquished, even the terrifying Quarks are bested every time. Every day, the wind is fair and when the heroic Dr. Who comes to call, everybody lives. The world is one of adventure and excitement and justice for all. The Doctor finally has everything he ever wanted, and plans to live happily ever after.

Starring Gene Wilder (The Doctor/The Master of the Land/Dr. Who), Frazer Hines (Jamie McCrimmon) and Christopher Robbie (Karkus)
