Doctor Who fans plan mass rewatch of episode

Like the Doctor's arch enemy, The Master, once said, "what this country really needs, right now, is a doctor." And it seems fans of Doctor Who agree.

While real-life doctors and nurses work really hard to make sure people get better from Coronavirus, the rest of us have been told to stay indoors.
