Something I Need

I need my favorite show(s) to air already.

Top Gear UK (in my opinion, the only Top Gear that should be around) has begun airing series 19, and they don’t cease to disappoint.

Well, as you see, my favorite shows are those from the BBC. Doctor Who, Top Gear, and Sherlock compose of my Top 3 live action shows.

Sherlock, I believe, hasn’t even begun shooting the 3rd series (someone correct me if I’m wrong) due to Martin Freeman (Dr. John Watson) just finishing with all the hullabaloo of The Hobbit.

So, here I am, waiting for Series 7 Part 2 of Doctor Who. My last taste of the longest running sci-fi show in history was the last episode of the series to date, which introduced a new companion for that maniacal alien.

The writers for the show are genius (and actually, also write the adapted stories for Sherlock) and pretty much fill my brain with new ideas. I need the shows back to occupy my brain!

Anyway.

Top Gear is back with a new title intro, and Doctor Who has done the same. I can’t actually find a video that showcases all the title intros for Top Gear, but I have found one for Doctor Who. So, enjoy. (Don’t mind this space. This space right here, within the confines of these parentheses, are for the future embed link that I shall procure for all of you in the future that showcases the title intros for Top Gear)

Earworm: “This is Gallifrey”/”Vale Decem” composed by Murray Gold

Doctor Who. An epic show. The longest running sci-fi show in history, in fact.

Every season of this epic show holds an epic official soundtrack, and Murray Gold hasn’t failed to deliver with his compositions.

Two of my many favorite compositions are “This is Gallifrey” and “Vale Decem,” songs that were used to send off David Tennant, the 10th reincarnation of The Doctor.

Lo and behold, Doctor Who Prom performed those two back-to-back in 2010. I am pleased beyond imagination.

Earworm: “Stay” by Hurts

Ah, right in the feels.

I am a Whovian. A few months ago, through the fandom, I heard this song. It’s a great song, really. I can’t say that I don’t like it.

But the pain in this song is made more obvious through the fan made music video. There’s no use in explaining it if you haven’t watched the series, and I do highly suggest you watch. It’s brilliant. Fantastic. Bring a banana, because the show is a party. Geronimo! Jump right into it, don’t hesitate. Season 7 part 1 is ending this weekend, and I do not want to miss it.

Here is the official music video:
