John Carpenter’s Doctor Who

What if John Carpenter did a Doctor Who Theme? One of GeorgeCMusic’s short run of YouTube music clips, something interesiting imagining what it would be like if the Doctor Who theme were arranged by some of the giants of electronic music. This would be as if John Carpenter had had a go at the iconic Who theme for one of his early ’80s horror movies, such as Halloween or The Fog.

Synths used were: Arturia Prophet VS, ARP Odyssey VSTi, LinnDrum samples, Amore Grand Piano, NI FM7. Also used was the Ferric Classic Tape simulator to give the mix a bit of a retro crunch.

Class full panel at New York Comic Con 2016

Let’s watch and enjoy the full Class panel from the Theater at Madison Square Garden in NYC at New York Comic-Con 2016.

Four Coal Hill School students who have hidden secrets and desires, navigate a life of friends, parents, school work, sex, sorrow – and possibly the end of existence. Coal Hill School has been a part of the Doctor Who universe since the very beginning, the year of 1963 when Doctor’s grand daughter attented to the highschool, but that has come at a price. Time travelling over the years has caused the very walls of space and time to become thin. There’s something pressing in on the other side, something waiting for its chance to kill everyone and everything, to bring us all into Shadow. Panel includes stars Greg Austin, Fady Elsayed, Sophie Hopkins and Vivian Oparah along with Patrick Ness and Brian Minchin.

Doctor Who theme song played at otamatone

Something very odd, brilliantly odd: one night, bored YouTuber SimplyAnna decided to play the Doctor Who theme on her otamatone (a musical instrument shaped like a note on a stave, that you blow into). The result is the sort of buzzing fizziness, and you can enjoy it right now.

Regenerate, a “Wide Awake” parody

How about a rewording of Katy Perry‘s “Wide Awake”, a video clip for that song from the perspective of a fan trying to get used to the Doctor’s various regenerations?

First you hate him, then he’s alright, then he’s your favorite and you love him and you want some more of him.
