Doctorin’ The TARDIS at the Sci-Fi Weekender

Several sci-fi events have taken place this past weekend on both sides of the Atlantic – some of you out there are more than likely nursing serious Doctor Who party time come downs!

To ease your path back to sanity, here’s a superb moment from the Sci-Fi Weekender 5, in which some dancers give their own interpretation to The Timelords’ “Doctorin’ The TARDIS” during the evening’s entertainment…

    Their relief is palpable as the music changes at the end to something they can actually dance to….

    That wasn’t embarrassing at all. Ahem.

    It’s regrettable KLF chose a Gary Glitter song for doctorin’ the TARDIS. Rock and Roll Christmas was also in Attack of the Graske, and that was post infamy days. Bizarre.

    • Rock and Roll Christmas is unforgivable, as he would have earned royalties from that.

      Samples from Rock’n’Roll Part 1 and Part 2 at least – I think I’m right in saying – have his vocal lines removed for the KLF/JAMM’s lyrics.

      Of course Mike Leander’s estate also benefits when these records are played – Glitter wasn’t talented enough to write his own songs single-handed.

      Now, it is. The KLF (as “The Timelords”) released this track in 1988.Gary Glitter was arrested for Kiddie Porn in 1997, but wasn’t charged until 1999. The KLF may have been talented with creating music, burning millions of pounds and creating crop circles, but they weren’t time travellers. The only people that can be criticized here, is the people who chose to use it in their act.

    It was a immense part of the evening. Crowd went wild then we danced and aled the night away until the wee hours!

      It was, indeed, a massive highlight of the evening. As Gareth says, the crowd went wild. The dancers had some bigger challenges than this to dance to… And frankly, I’d have been entertained just watching the dancers stand still… :)
