Are the eyes windows to the soul? No, they are in fact the doors. If you look into her eyes, even for a second, you’ll see wonders beyond imagining. The stars, the universe, an adventure waiting to be had, it’s all there… and she’s inviting you along.

Alternative Doctor Who themes

This ska version by the Melbourne Ska Orchestra is something cool.

And also the lightly swung jazz version, complete with (sonic) vibraphone solo. In honour of the Herts Jazz Festival 2016, the Youtuber GeorgeCMusic decided to upload this swing jazz arrangement of the Doctor Who theme he made a few years ago. It was created for a Doctor Who fan audio play currently stuck in development hell.

How about a few modulations for solo piano? This Doctor Who jazz cover was created by Bendy, he got the idea from comedian and musical genius Bill Bailey on his live show “The Remarkable Guide To The Orchestra”. And he just had to try it!
