The Twelve Days of Christmas, Doctor Who Style!

Christmas Day itself, complete with a new episode of Doctor Who, might have been and gone, but technically we’re still experiencing “The Twelve Days of Christmas”.

While this might present an excuse for daily views of The Snowmen (but you don’t need an excuse, right?) it also affords us the chance as Doctor Who fans to enjoy a new song…

That’s right – “The Twelve Days of Christmas” has had a Whovian rewrite, complete with mentions of Daleks, Cybermen, the sonic screwdriver, the TARDIS and much more, as follows:

On the 1st day of Christmas the Doctor gave to me the Tardis Flashing Merrily!
On the 2nd day of Christmas the Doctor gave to me Two Kissing Ponds…and the Tardis Flashing Merrily!
On the 3rd day of Christmas the Doctor gave to me three Daleks…
On the 4th day of Christmas the Doctor gave to me Four Van Gogh Paintings…
On the 5th day of Christmas the Doctor gave to me SPOILERS SWEETIE
On the 6th day of Christmas the Doctor gave to me Six Fish Sticks with Custard…
On the 7th day of Christmas the Doctor gave to me Seven Sonic Screwdrivers…
On the 8th day of Christmas the Doctor gave to me Eight Marks for the Silence…
On the 9th day of Christmas the Doctor gave to me Nine Cybermen Upgrading…
On the 10th day of Christmas the Doctor gave to me Ten Engraved Fob Watches…
On the 11th day of Christmas the Doctor gave to me Eleven Scarlet Bowties…
On the 12th day of Christmas the Doctor gave to me Twelve Angels Weeping…

We’ll assume that you’ll print/email and keep this rousing number, ready to enjoy with brandy and eggnog next Christmas (or if you’re keen, before the end of the current Twelve Days of Christmas!)
