Geeks love two things: They love song mashups, and they love Doctor Who. Possibly they love other things as well, but science has yet to confirm that. Wonderful, then, that Doctor Who fan Ginger Ten has mashed Doctor Who with the Plain White T’s song “Hey There Delilah” to produce, of course, “Hey There, Rose Tyler”.
The inspiration behind Ginger Ten’s mashup was, no surprise, the series 2 finale “Doomsday” where Rose departs from the show, and she and the Doctor make their (as they believed) final farewells. Unfortunately their farewell is cut short before the Doctor gets to tell Rose how he feels.
“I think I cried for a good 15 minutes after having to see them attempt their goodbyes, only to have them cut short,” says Ginger Ten. “It was particularly devastating because of how much I empathize with Ten. The song is basically my way of expressing Ten’s need to say all those things he never got a chance to say at Bad Wolf Bay.”
The song has been given the “lyrics video” treatment by YouTubesmith The Broken Frozen Heart. You can watch that video below.
You can pick up “Hey There, Rose Tyler” and Ginger Ten’s other Who-themed music on his BandCamp page.
