Matt's Smith's hilarious 1st 2011 guest spot as Doctor Who

What do you do when you're the host of the U.K.'s National Television Awards (think People's Choice Awards), you've overslept and you're late for your gig? Why, you get Doctor Who to take you back in time in his TARDIS, of course!

Featuring Matt Smith, who was back in top form as the Eleventh Doctor (his first appearance of the year), the skit features a host of celebrities that many of us outside of the U.K. might not recognize. Nonetheless, the video is rip-roaring fun and completely hilarious. An example?

The Doctor: "Oh no! We're heading to some vast and terrible arena, full of insane shrieking banshees thirsting for blood and conquest."

Dermot O'Leary (the host): "Yes, that's it! That's the National Television Awards!"

Just priceless. Enjoy!

Sadly, Doctor Who lost the award for Most Popular Drama to Waterloo Road, and Outstanding Drama Performance to David Jason.
