Popular music in 'Doctor Who' #1

Episode: 'An Unearthly Child - Part 1: An Unearthly Child' (1963)
Artist: The Arthey Nelson Group, also known as The Arthur Nelson Group
Title: 'Three Guitars Mood 2'
Notes
* Heard on a transistor radio being played by Susan when we first meet her
* The song is credited with being performed by 'John Smith And The Common Men'
* According to Ian: "John Smith is the stage name of the Honourable Aubrey Waites. He started his career as Chris Waites and the Carollers"
* The Arthey Nelson Group consisted of Derek Nelson and Johnny Arthey
* To my knowledge, this record, released in 1961, was the only release made by the band. A 10" single, it featured two tunes: 'Three Guitars Mood 1' and 'Mood 2'

Okay i admit, i enjoyed that. A very good episode.

A total surprise at the finale and one that gave me a shiver down the spine.

Absolutely pisses all over every episode from series 11.

Yep, after Series 11, I'll gladly take that. It was on for a 7/10 but the ending shot it up to an 8.

Dare I say... I'm actually looking forward to Doctor Who again? I haven't had that feeling since 2017.

Popular music in 'Doctor Who' #2

Episode: 'The Chase - Part 1: The Executioners' (1965)
Artist: The Beatles
Title: 'Ticket To Ride'
Notes:
* The song originally appeared on the 1965 album 'Help'
* The Doctor, Ian, Barbara and Vicki watch the band performing on the TARDIS Time-Space Visualiser
* The footage of the band using in the programme was filmed at Riverside Studios, for inclusion in the 'Top Of The Pops' television show which was originally broadcast on Saturday, 10th April, 1965
* The original intention was to feature the band appearing as themselves, but under heavy 'ageing' make-up, to represent themselves in 1996, playing at the Festival of Ghana. Although the four members of the group approved the idea, in manager Brian Epstein objected to them appearing on the programme
* Because of the BBC's practice of wiping shows that were not considered 'important', it is ironic that 'The Executioners' is now the only remaining source of any surviving Beatles footage from 'Top of the Pops'
* Due to the fact that the music is covered by an agreement for use in the UK, the sequence with The Beatles is only included on the Region 2 release of 'The Chase'.

The performance as featured on 'Doctor Who'

The full song

tbh i thought it was still a bit pants. admittedly better than anything in the previous season. there are enjoyable moments but there's still a tonal element that's all wrong, that tilts the attempts at humour (and some of the action scenes e.g. car/bike chase) into cheesiness. this for me is a Chibnall problem - his attempts at quirkiness just come off as someone trying too hard to be quirky. And JW's line delivery is still irritating.

on the plus side there were some good set pieces e.g. the laser in the car, the outback siege and the finale.

Lol, people moan at me when I say pants they think its something I make up and i keep telling them its a word people use, but they won't have it .
I agree and I know it sounds daft but clips where they are all running to jump on back of plane things like that irritate me for some reason .
