Doctor Who’s Season six, in ten minutes, by the Scottish Falsetto Sock Puppet Theatre.

And if you liked that, see if you can find their Torchwool, Primarkeval, and a dozen other Doctor Who themed videos somewhere out there on YouTube. The Socks also appear as DVD Easter Eggs on the classic Doctor Who videos The Dominators, The Horns Of Nimon and The War Games.

Congrats, as always, to KevF.

Hat tip to B3ta.
