Okay, that does it. Everybody get ready for the Rapture...

Thanks for the Delia Derbyshire documentary.

How the Doctor Who theme might have sounded without Delia Derbyshire.

I can't get the bloody thing out of my head now.

It’s catchy, in a not-very-Doctor Who kind of way. Unless the Doctor drives a Jag, seduces switched-on babes and is played by Peter Wyngarde.

Thanks for the squid link. It's my daughter's nickname and she can identify several species from pictures alone. I like trying to trick her with photos of cuttlefish. She's never heard of the very unique big-fin squid, so i can't wait to show her that video tonight.

The Doctor Who theme reminded me of . . .

. . . consider also The Prisoner.

And in parallel compare the general productions of the 1965 What's New Pussycat with the 1967Casino Royale.
