The Doctor – Hamilton style song parody

If “Hamilton: An American Musical” was about Doctor Who instead, it would probably be A Gallifreyan musical and it would open with this musical number titled “The Doctor”. And it sounds great! This music video mashes a fan written song to the tune of “Alexander Hamilton” with clips from the entire history of Doctor Who on screen so far. Sit back, pretend you’re on Broadway, and learn about our favorite Time Lord.

The parody premiered live in 2017 during the Idiot’s Lantern sketch comedy show at the Los Angeles Doctor Who convention, Gallifrey One.

Parody & video conceived and written by: Alexander Daniels

Recorded, mixed, and edited (audio & video) by: Scott Sebring

Vocalists: Melissa Bierend, Alexander Daniels, Adam Joseph Ferry, Cooper Karn, Kevin Kittridge, Amanda Jane Salmon

Original “Alexander Hamilton” written by Lin-Manuel Miranda

How does a madman, ignored, son of a human and a
Time Lord, dropped in the middle of a forgotten
Spot within the far-flung constellation of Casterborous, dejected,
Grow up to be a hero and respected?

The Oncoming Storm, the Bringer of Darkness
He started his journey
By stealin’ a type 40,
By fighting the Daleks’ war, he
was writing their whole story
Before tea, when Cybermen tarnished his shot at glory.

And then one day when Zoe and Jamie were swept way
Away, joined in the fray, they struggled to keep their guard up
The foes that they fought were no match for our cosmic hobo,
The brother was ready to beg, steal, barter, or borrow.

Then the Time Lords came, and devastation reigned
Our man saw his future drip, drippin’ down the drain
“Too much interference”
they said,
“you cannot refrain,
So on Earth you must remain,”
No TARDIS to ease his pain

Well then UNIT came around, they said, “This kid is insane, mack!”
Made him an advisor ‘till the Time Lords gave his keys back
“We gave you education, don’t forget from whence you came
And nobody knows your name! What’s your name, man?”

My name is The Doctor.
I say that my name is The Doctor.
I’ve seen a million worlds, but there are more,
So just you wait, just you wait

Then they came back, the Cybermen, once again, crash a ship
Some years later, the Doctor absorbed poison from the Spectrox,
Half-dead, sittin’ in his own sick
The scent thick.

The Doctor got better, but Adric went quick.

Moved on by the Val’yard, a darkness that he had kept inside,
But when the evidence was falsified, with acquitted pride
The voice said, “(Doctor) The Rani’s hot on your trail”
He started retreatin’ and freein’ his regenerated self.

There would’ve been nothin’ left to do
For someone less astute
He would’ve been dead or destitute
When he was shot in San Francisco
Tasked with movin’, removin’ the remains of the Master
Pushed him in the Eye of Harmony and ran off faster.

(Chasin’) the Bad Wolf throughout all of time and space before
(Embracin’) vortex energy, see
him as he stands at the (oooh)
Console of his ship headed for a new land
On New Earth you can be a new man

On New Earth you can be a new man (Allons-y)
On New Earth you can be a new man (Allons-y)
On New Earth you can be a new man
On New Earth
New Earth


Your name is The Doctor (His name is the Doctor)
And the Oncoming Storm are you (Oncoming Storm are you)
You could never back down
You never learned to take your time

Oh, your name is the Doctor (His name is the Doctor)
And the Silence will fall for you

Will ever outrun your shame?
Will the Time War destroy your name?
Our world will never be the same, oh

Pandorica is open now, see if you can spot him
(Just you wait)
He’s just a madman with a box and no one’s caught him.
(Just you wait)
After Lake Silencio the Universe forgot him

We fought with him

Me? I died for him

Me? I trusted him

Me? I loved him

And me? I’m the damn fool that shot him

There’s a million worlds that you have seen
But just you wait
What’s your name, man?
His name is the Doctor!

Regeneration Carol – A Christmas parody by Not Literally Productions

Something funny based on “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” by Frank Loesser. Hoping to listen you singing on Christmas (while watching the special episode?).

We wish you could stay
I’ve gotta regenerate
For just one more day?
I’ve gotta regenerate
Our travels have been–
It feels like we barely met
So very nice
Showed you the stars, but at what price?
I wish you could stay forever
Maybe I’m not so clever
Stop list’ning for that knock at the door
The girl who waited, waiting no more
I guess now it’s goodbye sweetie
Beautiful please don’t leave me
Well maybe just a little trip more…
Come on in, I’ll just get the door
Can’t run anymore
I really don’t want to go
Well…you’ve done this before
Must it be time to go?
I’m glad that we had…
Even fixed points can change
…the time we had
I guess it might not be so bad
It’s time to run and remember
How bittersweet this December
You’ll be the same old Doctor inside
Maybe I’ll be ginger this time
We wish you could stay
It’s time for a clean slate
Time to regenerate!

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.

Hey Missy – a parody by Legs Nose Robinson

You remember from the last episode of series 8 Missy singing “oh Missy, you’re so fine?” to the tune of “Hei Mickey” by Toni Basil, right? Just before killing Osgood? Well… Legs Nose Robinson have done the whole song with a Whovian twist…. a parody-style. Inspired by the antics of The Doctor’s “frenemy”, Missy the Mistress, they’ve composed their own version of “Hey Mickey” with brand new lyric and a video clip.

Daleks invade Sesame street, but the Doctor will be also there

The greatest number lover’s convention is coming to Sesame Street this year! It’s the upcoming Numeric Con episode… a brilliant parody of Comic Con (with an educational twist, of course) that features Sesame  Street characters like Elmo dressed up as comic book and sci-fi heroes like Princess Leia and Batman (‘The Dark Nine’).

Tom Baker’s Doctor will be there also, the Tardis and some suspiciously Dalek-shaped creatures screeching “Enumerate”. Also Wolverine (‘Fiverine’) from the X-Men, Comic Book Guy from The Simpsons and a perfect impression of William Shatner as Captain Kirk.

Karen Gillan joins the US TV series NTSF:SD:SUV (National Terrorism Strike Force: San Diego: Sport Utility Vehicle)

It’s not long since Karen Gillan left Doctor Who series, now he joins the US TV series NTSF:SD:SUV (National Terrorism Strike Force: San Diego: Sport Utility Vehicle). I’ve never heard about this show, but it seems to be a procederal and action parody and it’s filming the third series. It should be interesting to watch…

Karen Gillan will appear alongside existing cast members Paul Scheer, Kate Mulgrew, Rebecca Romijn, Brandon Johnson, June Diane Raphael, Rob Riggle, Martin Starr and Peter Serafinowicz.

NTSF:SD:SUV – which stands for National Terrorism Strike Force: San Diego: Sport Utility Vehicle – is created by Scheer who stars as agent Trent Hauser alongside his elite counter-terrorist unit. Gillan will appear as Daisy, the team’s ‘Q’ tech expert, in a third season of, “furious screaming, pregnant pauses, and even more civilian casualties than last season.”

In their bid to bring down San Diego-based terrorists, the unit will go to extreme lengths including surgically swapping faces with each other, kidknapping an alien, faking their own deaths and, er, entering the dangerous British District of San Diego.

The new series has already begun shooting in LA and London and will be broadcast on US channel Adult Swim this July.
