Re: Whovian Whumor

For anyone who doesn't know, this is based on the original song by Victoria Wood, "The Ballad of Barry and Freda," as performed on her show Victoria Wood As Seen on TV in 1985. As shown by the loving homage, the song is considered one of the seminal works of British comedy.

I can certainly imagine Jonny B as a big Victoria Wood fan. The gays always are. He probably dressed up as Mrs Overall for Halloween one year.

Now see, this is why damn near everybody loved David. He's a bigger nerd than anybody in the audience.

The Ballad was fun, but needed subtitles in a few places (and I usually don't have trouble with British accents).

Both those vids are brilliant. Obviously a moment's saddness when we saw Lis dancing and singing along with DT, but a smile too!
Yeah, I had a tear in my eye to see her (and to see how happy she was), but of course I was smiling too. She loved Doctor Who just as much as anyone else.

I didn't know Tennant was such a big fan of the group but you can see how giddy he was to be in that moment. Like a kid in a candy shop.

Absolutely. At the end of the day, David Tennant is a giant dork. It's no wonder everyone loves him.

he was in the video for the charity version of this that the Proclaimers did with Peter Kay and Matt Lucas, clearly loving every second of it and singing along.

Here you go;

Julie and Russell sat one night. Russell sparked up a Marlboro Light
Julie's eyes were all ablaze, as Russell tried to shun her gaze
He knew that look, he knew the score, it seemed more manic than before
Russell cringed in fear and dread, as Julie pulled him near and said...

Let's do it, let's do it. I've had a really good idea
We'll revamp, make more camp, a Sci-Fi show from yesteryear
I've had banter with Tranter
Your written work will be hailed in the Ming Mong mantra
Let's do it, let's do it tonight.

But he said...

I can't do it, I can't do it, you're asking far too much of me
I'm harassed, embarrassed, I've watched the show since I was three
Don't choose me, don't use me
My mother sent a note to say you must excuse me
I can't do it, I can't do it tonight

So she said...

Let's do it, let's do it, make a brand new Doctor Who
We've got Chris in, all's missin' is a sidekick and an all-Welsh crew
It's not silly to ask Billie
We'll film in every quarry from here to Caerphilly
Let's do it, let's do it tonight

Wooh! Then he said...

I can't do it, I can't do it; the pressure of the BBC
I must email some young male to alleviate the stress on me
I can't block out, please lock out,
Images of Johnny B getting his c*ck out
I can't do it, I can't do it tonight

She replied...

Let's do it, let's do it, Phil OKed my offer to produce
We'll get Trac (?) to take flack when he lets his raging temper loose
My decision to use your vision
Will make the show the best thing on the television
Let's do it, let's do it tonight

And he squawked...

I can't do it, I can't do it; Chris is giving up his role
No Time Lord, oh good lord, how're we gonna fill this hole?
It's too complex, we're all wrecks
My brain is overflowing with the bloody Daleks!
I can't do it, I can't do it tonight

She excitedly said...

Let's do it, let's do it; we'll get another Time Lord in
Don't sweat it, you can't let it make you sad and maudlin
It's not over, and moreover
We'll get that lovely fella in from Casanova
Let's do it, let's do it tonight!

And he yelled...

I can't do it, I can't do it, I really think that I can't cope
More rewrites, no respite, I think I've given up all hope!
It'll get canned, it'll be panned
Lou says there's no costumes in the whole of England!
I can't do it, I can't do it tonight

Then she proclaimed...

Let's do it, let's do it, Martha Jones is Freema Agyeman
We'll bring back Captain Jack to fight against the Cybermen
We'll cast a great Master
He can plunge the planet into global disaster
Let's do it, let's do it tonight

And he screamed...

I can't do it! I can't do it! You've cast Australia's pop princess?!
It's madness, my sadness will make this episode a mess
My panic is manic
The uproar when I kill her off on the Titanic!
I can't do it! I can't do it tonight

Then she expelled...

Let's do it, let's do it, the Doctor needs a brand new mate
Don't linger, go ginger, I'm gonna bring back Catherine Tate
I wanna, you're gonna
Reunite the Doctor with the fabulous Donna
Let's do it, let's do it tonight

He punctuated...

I can't do it, I can't do it, I've got obsessed with E4's Skins
Writer's block, please don't mock, it takes my mind off other things
It's so lame, I must blame
Dirty thoughts I'm having about Midshipman Frame
I can't do it, I can't do it tonight

Excitedly she said...

Let's do it, let's do it, to film abroad would get my vote
I promise Ed Thomas can bring ancient Rome to Upper Boat
It's D-Day in Pompeii
The forums will be buzzing on Outpost Gallifrey!
Let's do it, let's do it tonight!

And he roared...

I can't do it! I can't do it! The studio in Rome's ablaze!
On fire, it's dire, how the hell are you not fazed?!
It's mental, be gentle
They say the cause of fire was a Berkeley menthol
I can't do it, I can't do it tonight

So she roared...

Let's do it, let's do it, we've got kids back behind settees
Our mission, ambition, was a show for all the family
We should try, as our goodbye
A hassle-free excursion to sunny Dubai!
Let's do it, let's do it tonight

And he shouted...

Ohhh! Let's do it! Let's do it! I feel like I have been set free!
I won't sweat it, now Moffat is taking up the reigns from me
I can't wait, it's just great
I've got a cracking way for Dave to regenerate
Let's do it! Let's do it tonight!

Guess what?!

They did it! They did it! They opened up the TARDIS door
They're terrific, prolific, made it better than it was before
A thank you from your crew
We crown you both the King and Queen of Doctor Who
You did it, you did it tonight!

Re: Whovian Whumor

Thanks for the transcription and annotations - I got most of the references but not all of them. But I don't get the Ming Mong bit. Is this some nickname or something? The page on that link seems to be just copied from Wikipedia.

Both these videos are excellent and I hope the plans for a worldwide fan video sequel to 500 Miles pan out.
