As established by many precedents, we cover media like this in full, not just the Doctor Who elements; therefore, the plot summary and cast list needs to be amended to contain details from the entire mini-sode.
2020: The Movie was a comedy sketch originally shown during the 2021 Red Nose Day telethon on BBC One. It was presented in the format of a trailer for a made-up film about the struggles of dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic throughout 2020. It contained a short scene which featured Jodie Whittaker and Mandip Gill in (semi-)character as the Thirteenth Doctor and Yasmin Khan.
Synopsis[edit | edit source]
After a year like no other, prepare for the biggest blockbuster movie NEVER made (yet) with 2020: The Movie. Part biopic, part disaster film, this new release turns movie stars into unlikely everyday British heroes.
Plot[edit | edit source]
The Thirteenth Doctor and Yasmin Khan are working in a hospital, when they suddenly hear clapping. They realises it is 8PM on a Thursday, meaning it could only be the clapping for carers. They also remember that it means bakeoff is about start, and that they needed to get a move on if they wanted to see it.
