    :techman: Wow, just brilliant. Three great performers at the top of their game. Loved Tennant's RTD. Great writing too.

    These two vids show people having fun working on a show that seems to be extremely fun to work on and I love that kind of stuff.

    Both those vids are brilliant. Obviously a moment's saddness when we saw Lis dancing and singing along with DT, but a smile too!

    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).

    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. :D

    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.

    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.

    I'm pretty sure I've been through this whole thread and haven't seen this posted:

    Anyways, a friend found it on facebook and shraed it with me. It's all kinds of cool.
