I own a copy of DOCTOR IN DISTRESS.

Stop looking at me like that: I was young and foolish.

And it is every bit as horrible as they intimate in the article.

This, however, is emminently dancable and quite catchy.

FTA: "Doctor in Distress," the completely unlistenable charity single featuring instrumentation from none other than Hans Zimmer!

It was the 80s. Cocaine is a hell of a drug.

I have the 12" version of this awful thing; it's the B-side of the Doctor Who theme on vinyl from 1986. Because if anything in the world is more awesome than the 1978 disco version of the Doctor Who theme, its the version done by Dominic Glynn for "Trial of a Time Lord."

I don't think I've ever heard the words "Of all the versions of the Doctor Who theme, I like Dominic Glynn's the best!"

The merch was VERY hard to come by in the 1980s. Went through a phase in the 1980s where I would have bought a dog turd if it had the Doctor Who logo on it. Yes, that includes this.

I'm sorry. I'm so, so sorry.

I'm not much of a fan of that particular arrangement of the Doctor Who theme, but compared to the horrible that was Keff McCulloch that came after Trial of a Time Lord, everything sounds good.

If you just can't get enough, there's always the Whomix site. My favorite is the Industrial Cyber remix:

I can't believe I remember that.

I also remember being one of two kids in my 5th grade class who knew what it was talking about.

I think I've still got my 45' copy lying around here somewhere. Bought it at a con right about the time it came out. Were we really that young and stupid back then?

Have to admit though, even after all these years I still think the Davison theme kicks all sorts of ass.

Oops, hit 'Add Comment' too soon.

Never liked the Glynn version at all. It just seemed rather dull. Maybe a stronger bass line would have helped. Something like this maybe?

Not too shabby either.

I've got the 45 for this. And Doctor In Distress. I actually used to occasionally play the disco Who theme a bit, despite its immense cheese factor.

Doctor in Distress, on the other hand I didn't make through the first listen. Bought it entirely to help encourage the BBC to bring back the show from hiatus.

That was horrible, just horrible.

So question: Also spoiler from last season.


Rory lives for 2000ish years as a Rory-bot and then survives the end of universe. Is he still a robot or what? I missed the explanation.

The universe was rebooted without the Doctor in it when he did the Big Bang 2.0 thing, so Amy never went adventuring with him and Rory never died. When she remembered the Doctor at her wedding, it brought the Doctor back in existence, and their previous adventures were more or less restored, except Rory didn't this time die and the whole Pandorica adventure probably never happened (although Amy, Rory, and River still have memories of the original timeline). It doesn't make a huge amount of sense if you think about it too hard, because you run into all kinds of cause and effect issues, like how Amy would have to have met the Doctor in a different way if the crack wasn't there. You basically have to apply some handwavium and assume that the universe somehow worked it all out during the Big Bang 2.

Ah, so 'we pulled it out our ass'. Got it, thanks.

Don't get why they always have to fall back to the whole 'love will conquer all' bit in shows. Love may get you to walk a mile on a broken leg while holding your insides in when they want to come out, but it isn't going to change the universe. Just your own personal one. Cheapens that idea if you ask me.

Amy (and presumably Rory) now have three sets of memories, three realities, merged in their heads. Amy mentions the confusion of the first two sets to the Doctor in "Good Night" and the Doctor mentions Rory having the same issue. "Good Night" apparently takes place before "The G-d Complex" rather than after "The Doctor, the Widow and the Wardrobe" from adult Amy's perspective (the end of it takes place a year or more before "The Eleventh Hour" from young Amelia's perspective). Anyhoo, she talks with her daughter at the end of "The Wedding of River Song" about the third timeline that has now merged into her mind & reality, the one in which she rather brutally murdered Madame Kovarian.

Not to thread jack, but I've been meaning to ask knowledgeable Farkers, if Amy is the first companion to have been shown murdering. Many have killed in self-defence or the defence of others, or as soldiers in battle, but has any of them besides Amy murdered? Did Leela do so? Did Jack?

The only one that I can think of who might have murdered someone would have been Turlough. I just can't remember if he did or not prior to being assigned to kill the Doctor by the Black Guardian.
