For many, watching the Doctor Who Christmas special is as crucial to Christmas Day as the turkey.
So as people made time in their day for some Peter Capaldi on their screens, some were quick to notice another familiar face that they weren’t expecting to see – Alex Hunter from Fifa 17′s The Journey.
Now for those who don’t know, Alex Hunter is a fictional rising star, acted out by Tomiwa Edun, who players can play as in the latest Fifa game.
And it just all seems a bit random.
Alex Hunter on #DoctorWho !😂 This is mushing my brain. Never did I think FIFA and Doctor Who would ever collide!😲— Patrick Mayes (@PCWMayes) December 25, 2016
He played baddie Mr Brock but people couldn’t really take him seriously at all.
Good to see Alex Hunter made a career for himself after football #DrWho— Martin Moffatt OBE (@ElMoffoOfficial) December 25, 2016
This commentary for when he got his head split open was just too perfect.
