These Strictly Stars Tangoed to The Doctor Who Theme, Somehow

By Julie Muncy on at

The classic Doctor Who theme song is good for a lot of things. Teasing out-there space adventures. Provoking a bit of wonder. Generating a nice mood of goofy sci-fi imagination. But tango? Uh, well, now we can all be the judge of that.

This performance, from the Beeb's Strictly Come Dancing, features journalist Stacey Dooley and a dancer named Kevin dressed as the 13th Doctor and a Cyberman, respectively, doing an elaborate tango routine to the classic theme.

This video has it all, readers: a bedazzled Cyberman, a woman dancing out of a Tardis, and some wonderfully questionable lighting choices. I think this video has time travelling powers, because I’ve lost like an hour just watching it over and over again.

Is it good? Is it bad? Is it even real? I don’t have answers to these questions. You can watch, and judge for yourselves.
