From the BBC:
"A fun idea by two BBC staff members has resulted in a hilarious mash up of Doctor Who and Top Gear.
Inspired by his colleague Simon Catt, Matt Taylor of the BBC's Repeats & Reversioning team had the idea of combining David Tennant's appearance in Top Gear's Star In A Reasonably Priced Car slot with clips of the TARDIS in flight from Doctor Who.
The result - with Jeremy Clarkson talking Tennant through his spectacular 'lap' in the Space/Time machine - so impressed their boss Gill Holmes, that it found its way to Mark Harrison, Head of the BBC's Multiplatform Studio and then to Peter Salmon, Chief Creative Officer of the BBC Vision Studio."

Albert Einstein (Serkis) spent years working on his General Theory of Relativity, which threatened to overturn two centuries of Newtonian certainty and the foundations of British science. Arthur Eddington (Tennant) was a prominent British astrophysicist who, as a Quaker, believed that "truth knows no boundaries" and bravely championed Einstein’s theories while Britain rejected anything German.
In 1919, Eddington undertook an expedition to Africa to photograph light bending round the sun during an eclipse. These photographs not only proved the theory to be correct, but turned Einstein into a worldwide superstar.
Directed by Philip Martin (Prime Suspect – The Final Act) and written by Peter Moffat (Hawking), Einstein And Eddington co-stars Jim Broadbent, Lucy Cohu, Jodhi May and Rebecca Hall."
