Welcome to this week’s Doctor Who’s Day roundup, a sifting of virtual content across a week on the internet for Gallifreyan gems and Whovian gold dust.

This week, we begin with a collection of musical tributes to the Doctor Who theme, all of which have appeared on YouTube across the last seven days, as if there was some kind of collective decision to put down the summer ice creams and switch on the synths.

This, for example, is very good. It’s a version of the current theme as arranged by Murray Gold, but recreated so it matches the version recorded by the team who made the 1980s Doctor Who credits:

And here’s a lovely version of the original, eerie 1963 theme and title sequence:

There’s also this tribute to Dominic Glynn‘s forbidding electronic arrangement from Season 23:

And this tribute to the Second Doctor, as portrayed in Big Finish Productions’ Doctor Who – Unbound:

A back-to-basics electronic version that brings together the eeriness of the earliest theme with the rigidity of the latter years:

A version that puts the 1980s top melody line over the 1963 Delia Derbyshire bass part:

A version that seems on the verge of imploding:

And even a dance remix, for when the Doctor dances:

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