Either Tumblr has sprung a leak or this is how the BBC will finally and completely take over our lives. Regardless of its secret Illuminati origins, this fan-made Sherlock/Doctor Who mash-up from YouTube’s John Smith finds the Doctor meeting Sherlock for the first time in the closest you’ll ever come to seeing your Wholock softcore slash fiction play out in real life. Save for a few wonky facial matches, the editing on this piece is nothing short of breathtaking. Did you see that TARDIS dissolve? That’s better than the real thing! Don’t take my word for it — watch for yourself, then weep for a mini-series where Moriarty controls a Dalek army that will never happen.
Thanks to our own Internet Explorer, Jesse McKeil, for finding this clip. Now, let the inevitable GIF-making frenzy begin. Seriously, guys, why doesn’t the BBC make this happen already? Do they hate money?
