This article needs a big cleanup.

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.

These problems might be so great that the article's factual accuracy has been compromised. Talk about it here or check the revision history or Manual of Style for more information.

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.

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.
