Radio XXVII, side A, track 11: “Doctorin’ The TARDIS” by The Timelords

The Timelords - Doctorin' the TARDISOh, The Timelords, if there was one song of all the songs I’ve ever taped that I never truly appreciated it’s immense awesomeness when I first heard it, it was this one.  When I heard this way back in ’89, I appreciated that it was a great song, but I didn’t appreciate WHY it was a great song.  I hadn’t reached full geekitude at that point, and sadly, I didn’t really know who Doctor Who actually was.  I know, The Timelords, pretty ludicrous, right?  I may have caught one old Tom Baker episode at one of my cousins’ houses once, but the special effects were pretty cut-rate and I had no idea what was going on and was pretty underwhelmed.  Again, I know, sacrilege.

And don’t get me wrong, The Timelords, I’m not going to pretend that I’m the biggest Doctor Who fan out there.  I didn’t really get into it until Chris Eccleston rekindled the Who spark with his portrayal of the 9th Doctor, and I’m a season (or I guess “series” for the Brits) behind, so I haven’t seen Matt Smith’s final season, and I’ll be honest, I tried watching some of the original episodes on Netflix and I couldn’t really get into them. . .I don’t know why I’m making so many excuses, The Timelords, but I just want to make it clear that there are bigger fans than me out there.

But I know the significance of Gallifrey and I still miss Rose and I know the secret of River Song and I know that I friggin’ love it when the Daleks scream “Exterminate!”  And I of course know the theme song to “Doctor Who” and believe that it’s one of the most inspired bits of music ever to be created, and it gives me a giddy little thrill every time I hear it, so when I listened to this song again after so many years and heard that snippet, I smiled so wide, The Timelords, and it made me so happy to rediscover this song and to realize that I had unknowingly captured an amazing little piece of time that signifies a bit of my life that’s near and dear to me in the form of the Doctor Who universe.  And capturing an amazing little piece of time is kinda what Doctor Who’s all about, isn’t it, The Timelords?
