History of the Police Box

We are all expecting the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who, one year from now (minus one day), but meanwhile let’s remember something from almost 20 years ago. Actually 19, but who’s counting? 😀

The video was transmitted in 1993 as part of the 30th anniversary of Doctor Who. This was part of a celebration of the series with the BBC showing classic episodes including the Time Meddler and Planet of the Daleks.

Chameleon Circuit – Gallifreyan History 101

 Another music video for an epic Time Lord Rock song, “Gallifreyan History 101”. It details the (rather complex) history of the Doctor’s race and presents a fact file of handy knowledge in a comedic way. This gem was written by someone best known as Ginger Chris here on YouTube for his band, “Chameleon Circuit”.

LYRICS

At first we were just Gallifreyans and that was fine.
Just taking up space and biding our time
Till Rassilon came along
With his ever present sense of right and wrong
He was strong, he was mighty
He was the founder of Time Lord Society

Now this is the subject that everyone finds the hardest
But you’re gonna have to pass it if you want to earn your TARDIS
Nobody’s graduating from this Academy
Until you’ve all mastered Gallifreyan History

Now Rassilon had a buddy called Omega
His interstellar science would amaze ya
He found our source of power
And devised a cunning plan in under an hour
It went sour, he was erased
But at least now we could travel through time and space

Now if there’s a subject that’s impossible it’s this
In comparison, the Untempered Schism’s a piece of piss
But nobody’s graduating from this Academy
Until you’ve all mastered Gallifreyan History

So now we’re all time lords and that’s just fine
We’re travelling through space, bouncing through time
But we’ve made it clear not to interfere
And that’s a rule to which we all must adhere
But I fear that the Doc
Is away causing havoc in his big blue box

Now that brings up to date and we’re all gravy
I just hope it doesn’t get messed up by Russell T Davies
Nobody’s graduating from this Academy
Until you’ve all mastered Gallifreyan!
Until you can say you’re Gallifreyan!
Until you know all about Gallifreyan History
