The Doctor Who episode of The Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson was absolutely terrific and geektastic. Unfortunately, they didn’t do the cold open that was originally planned, apparently because the show couldn’t get the rights to do the Doctor Who theme music. On the show, Craig Ferguson mocked worry and anger about the cold open rehearsal possibly being leaked to YouTube.
Yesterday, it was leaked to YouTube.
And it’s absolutely bloody brilliant.
Seriously, it’s just so funny while also being a heartfelt tribute to the core ideas of the show. I love it to death.
If there’s a bumper sticker summation of how I live my life, “intellect and romance triumphing over brute force and cynicism” would be one of the best ways to put it.
