Whoydensday: Fanvids!

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.

  1. I’ve put in your Donna songvid req to the songvid queen cupidsbow.
    Spoilers may be within:
    For those familiar with both ihasatardis and the carameldanssen meme (for others, not so much), this is a coffee-spit macrosongvid (requires LOUD music):

    And Don’t Stop Me Now, with the Master, by Charmax.

  2. My fav ever is Calapine’s vid to Carbon Leaf’s “What About Everything?”. It’s a great retrospective and a great song–highly recommended.

  3. Lauredhel — that mpreg video was the funniest thing ever! I’ve seen people talking about it, but I hadn’t seen it yet. I must pay closer attention to ihasatardis. And “Don’t Stop Me Now” is my favourite Queen song — it strikes me that it would probably be quite appropriate for Donna too.
    Bene — I like vids that pay tribute to all the Doctors; thanks for sharing.

  4. Those are all wonderful vids! I shall bookmark your post, Beppie. I had no idea that Calapine did videos as well as fic, so thanks, Bene. Here’s another of Calapine’s called “The Fear You Won’t Fall” (Four/Romana).

  5. Quite simply… awesomeness 🙂 Esp. mpreg. Ah, Jack, me lad!

  6. Relativ is going straight onto my iPod…

  7. Karma in action: I decide to comment to say thankyou for posting the awesome “Skullcrusher mountain”..and there’s more vids! Woot!
    Handlebars is handsdown my favourite Dr Who vid: http://flummery.livejournal.com/26300.html?style=mine
    Though I must be boring and ask: are all these authorised versions? I know some vidders get very annoyed at their stuff being posted to youtube.

  8. Sophie — my love for “Skullcrusher Mountain” is unending — and it works with Doctor Who so beautifully!
    As for the YouTube vids, I am pretty sure that everything embedded here so far was uploaded by their creators. Of course, if something has slipped through that a vidder did not want on YouTube, then they only need to ask to have it removed from this post (although they’ll have to contact YouTube separately, of course, about having the video removed there).

  9. I believe I’ve checked everything I’ve embedded, and linked back to the vidders’ blog where possible.

  10. Oh, no. You sent me looking…
    And then I found this one, which had me in hysterics. (Master/10th Doctor).

  11. Oh, Athena, that is a whole world of fun!

  12. Seconded — that was great, Athena.
