Welcome to this week’s Doctor Who’s Day roundup, a stellar sifting of a week’s worth of Whovian gubbins across the internet and beyond.

And this week, we begin with a song, nothing too taxing or upsetting there, you’d think.

Except this song is “Hey There Delilah” by Plain White T’s, and it’s been given a lyrical retweak by Doctor Who fan Ginger Ten so it reflects what is commonly considered the single most upsetting moment in recent Doctor Who history. Here’s a lyric video, complete with illustrative photos, to really tweak those feelings. Hats off to everyone for a job well done:

Here’s what else has been going on in space and time this week:

• Peter Capaldi climbs inside a fan-made TARDIS:

• A lovely interview with Jenna Coleman in which she reveals how much she loves a good Doctor Who convention:

• Something to do with your free time (and space):
