"I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)" farewell video



Included in the player above is a video made by the production crew of Doctor Who during the last few months of the Russell T Davies era. It was shown at the wrap party for The End of Time and has not been seen in public, until now! Included, amongst many others, in the video are: David Tennant, Catherine Tate, Elisabeth Sladen, Bernard Cribbins, Noel Clarke, Billie Piper, Timothy Dalton, John Barrowman, Freema Agyeman, Camille Coduri and John Simm.

ETA:In case you're outside the UK and can't watch the video, I have included it below (it's blocked in some countries apparently).

Dancing Ood Sigma may be the single greatest thing I have ever seen in my entire life. If someone who knows more than me about such things than me can make a gif of it I would be in their eternal debt.

That video proves two, no three, things. 1) David has an obsession with this song and/or The Proclaimers. 2) Ood can dance!! 3) David is crazy....and I think I love him more now because of it!

I adore Steven Moffat. His era of Doctor Who has, so far, been my favourite bar none.

But I have never been more nostalgic for the Russell era than I was watching that video.

God I wish I could've been there!

Also found another video of this era.. the Ballad of Russell and Julie

Oh, man, I love this! It's so joyful! Imagine what an antidote this must have been to the gloom of that final DT/RTD story.

Love it. Such a fun farewell tribute. Dancing Oods are always cool.

This is where that "leaked" photo came from. :)

Loved every minute of it. It's a nice tribute to those who made the show too. Fun seeing this after two years of the Moffat era (though I love his version too).

Thanks for this - it is one of the greatest videos I've seen!
