O, video editing software, how I love thee so! Actually, I have very little skill with video editing software, nor do I have the time to acquire such skills, but fortunately, there are plenty of people with an abundance of both, who are willing to put their efforts towards splicing episodes of Doctor Who, putting them to music, and sharing them on YouTube, where they can be found by unsuspecting* PhD students who should be working on their theses.
Up first, because nobody’s life is complete without this song, is “Skullcrusher Mountain” by sconepop, based on the song of the same name by Jonathan Coulton:
More under the fold…
It might be a bit schmoopy, but Uliamos’ “Hey there, Rose” (based on “Hey there, Delilah” by Plain White T’s) makes me smile:
And lastly, because I’m a sucker for Torchwood and Jack/Ianto, Samantha Richter’s “Relativ(ely)” (based on the Wise Guys song) is great fun (and yes, I know it’s a bit heteronormative, but it’s very tongue-in-cheek):
Unfortunately, my favourite vid, It’s in His Kiss which Tigtog linked to here some months ago, has had the audio disabled.
I also wanted to include a Donna vid as part of this ensemble, but I couldn’t find one that didn’t focus on the moment when the Doctor rips her memories away, rather than on her pure awesomeness. If anyone knows of one, please let me know!
*Said PhD students may not actually be unsuspecting and may, in fact, be actively looking for these videos.
