Tonight’s article is going to be a heavy rant and the comic isn’t that great either, so let’s start the day with something fun. Before William Shatner did dramatic readings of Beatles songs and called it singing, Jon Pertwee put out a song called “Who Is Doctor Who“, a spoken word answer to that question set to the theme song. And while you’re over there ask Retroist contributor Vic Sage to pick up those other records he mentions and let us know if they’re any good.

    Cool song. Remember back when those kids in our high school would ask you and I: “Doctor Who? Who’s Doctor Who?”, Well, this is the response that we should have said back if we had known about this song at the time. John Pertwee gives a stellar delivery on what it means to be the Doctor.


    • But they were saying it to be #@$holes.

        Yes, I know, but if I had said John Pertwee’s elegant, intellectual reply, it would have confused them and made them realize just how stupid they were:) They wouldn’t have been able to understand half of the vocabulary words that Pertwee said. One thing about Doctor Who and 1980s comic books in general, those mediums really did help expand our vocabulary. Can the same be said about comic books and television shows of this 2nd decade of the 21st century?
