Now that Classic Doctor Who is on Hulu, I think I might watch some of the doctors that came after Tom Baker that I couldn't bring myself to do at the time.

This is one of the most complicated songs to parody. Around the site, we have an unofficial list of the "Big Seven" most difficult original songs. (American Pie, The Major General's Song, Supercalifragilistic Wreck of the Edmund Fitz ... some others I don't know this is on the list, but it could easily qualify
