    There’s been a few, well variations on the theme over the various regenerations!

    Also anyone else get Contact journey flashbacks when watching the Ecceleston one at the 5.05 mark?

    Incidentally, it has just occurred to me that a forensic examination of that damaged chair – its existence as damaged (vibration stress-fractured) in the way it was could perhaps have told the scientists at home a fair bit post-trip too..

    Absolutely. :-D Though occasionally I do appreciate it musically, most of the time I’m just “dumba-da-dumming” right along with it.

    A little over ten years ago, I had the chance to spend a month in London. One of my prized purchases during that trip was a leftover from Museum of the Moving Image’s Doctor Who exhibition. (They still have elements of the exhibition, just not the whole thing.) It’s a mug with the “lyrics” to the Doctor Who theme song on it (follow the bouncing TARDIS!):

    Dumba-da-dum, dumba-da-dum, diddly-dum, dumba-da-dum, dumba-da-dum, dumba-da-dum, diddly-dum, wa-ah-ahhhhhh-ahhhhahaaaa…..
