The Brits stole the show at last night’s Oscars with the biggest wins of the night going to “The King’s Speech“. Colin Firth won for Best Actor for his portrayal of the stammering King George, and the film also won Best Picture , Best Director (Tom Hooper) and Best Original Screenplay (David Seidler).

I would personally love to see how this story line would play out between the two shows, and how Sarah Jane will react to seeing the new Doctor, as opposed to the last time when he still was played by David Tennant. Check out the short teaser trailer below.
