“The music never ends.” The Time Team crosses the void beyond the mind to wraps its ears around some Who-related chart hits… and near misses

There are some corners of the universe which have bred the most terrible things. Novelty singles. Patchy covers. Bradders plays pop. They must be fought.

And so the Time Team finds itself posing for photos around a vinyl turntable. (Because it looks nice, OK? We’re playing the actual tracks on YouTube and Spotify.) Seven Time Teamers. Seven pop picks – at least one from each decade since the 1960s – inspired by, or inspiring, TV hit Doctor Who.

Also, Bradley Walsh has a ‘moment’ on Instagram.

All of the Team will score each track out of five, then we’ll calculate the average to give a star rating. LOOK, IT’S JUST A BIT OF FUN. Fire up the stereo! Rack it up, Joey! What sonic delights await? Only the best, and worst, of the Doc does pop…

WHO’S WHO (1965)

Roberta Tovey played Susan, the young granddaughter of Peter Cushing’s Dr Who, in two mid-60s Dalek films. But not before lending her vocals to this cash-in single. Who’s Who ( was released four days after Tovey’s 12th birthday and ten days before the first movie, 1965’s Dr. Who and the Daleks, hit cinemas. It was co-written and produced by Malcolm Lockyer, who composed the film’s frantic score.

LUKE: “It’s not very sci-fi.”

ZAINAB: “It feels like a nursery rhyme. ‘If you see a man with long, grey hair and a funny little smile on his face…’ She makes Dr Who sound like Santa – ‘as he travels from place to place…’”

ANT: “I can imagine this playing in Kill Bill, in a really violent fight sequence. Die, die, die!”
