I know that this Doctor Who anime is a few years old, but I just recently stumbled across it. Who would have thought that mixing together Jon Pertwee-era Doctor Who and Japanese anime, circa 1980s and 1990s, would be so darn cool. The creator of this anime, Paul Johnson, has taken down the video from YouTube, but others have uploaded it, and I’m glad that they did. Here’s the video for your enjoyment.

The creator of this Doctor Who anime originally posted, “13 minutes of the completed fake Doctor Who 80s-style anime. Drawn, animated and partially voiced by myself. Some bits are good, some bits are poor, but on the whole it turned out okay, I think. Enjoy! This is old school Who, so fans of the new reboot show may be confused by the fact that the Doctor is doing martial arts and Cybermen say “excellent.” Watch the classics and you’ll understand. You’ll also become almost instantly more handsome by watching classic Who.”

There’s a ton of action in this Doctor Who anime, and I just love the fight scene in the beginning with the Doctor and some thugs. While we mostly see the Daleks and Cybermen blasting away, we do get some cameos from the Sontarans and Sutekh. This video is a lot of fun and makes me wish we had more of it. Being anime-inspired, of course the Cybermen transform with more mech features.
