DOCTOR WHO’s Theme Song Gets The Cello Treatment
By Alicia Lutes on September 2, 2014
Apologies for not sending this to all of you right when it came out — we got stuck in the time vortex and it spit us out here, so we’ve just now regrouped to share this amazing cello cover of the Doctor Who theme song.
You’re likely to go quite mad, in a good way, for this cello-fied take on the iconic theme song. Because oooo-weeee-ooooo just sounds classier on a stringed instrument, doesn’t it?
Comin’ at you live from YouTubers The Doubleclicks, the sister duo regularly post videos of their songs “about D&D, dinosaurs and Mr. Darcy,” just like any good geeks would.
Okay, we admit it: we posted this simply as a way to discuss the new take on Doctor Who‘s theme song now that Peter Capaldi’s in the blue box. It’s one that’s divided fans on Twitter and other internet spaces, what with its hyper-electrified ways and semi-screeching sound. Call us old fashioned but something like this feels as though it would suit the Twelfth Doctor a little bit more, what with his love of books and learning and classical accouterment like bookshelves and chalkboards. But maybe that’s just us?
We particularly love that the cellist’s carrying case is TARDIS blue! I spy with my little eye someone that’s a Whovian.
