Telly Time Loop

The BBC revival of Doctor Who is now in its third season, and it's being handled brilliantly. [Logos from 1973 and 2005 are shown.] The single best decision made about the new series, however, was to keep the original theme music, written by Ron Granier in 1963. It's preserved with its wacky, out-of-date synth wobbles and all. Hurray for the BBC Drama Department! (And hurray for the American PBS stations that are now starting to run the series commercial-free.)
