Tardis Sound Heard at Olympic Opening

Something “Doctor Who” at Olympic opening ceremony

The Tardis engines were briefly heard at the Olympic opening ceremony. Newspapers had reported the theme tune was on a list due to played at the event which evidently was untrue.

However videos taken by the public show that a montage of The Doctors was shown on a big screen at rehearsals.

Recorded TV Videos of the Tardis sound have been blocked.

    Somehow, you turned out to be right about it being “not much at all”. Do you have a TARDIS?

    Desa….how can their be an extended version????????????????????????????????? What was cut was cut they didnt go redo it and film it to release it later… So things like the Dr Who segment getting cut arent going to miraculously appear in an extended version. You can tell movies from real right?

    In response to “Rooners July 28th, 2012: Doctor Who is pretty much unheard of outside of the UK”

    What, are you serious? I live in Canada and I can tell you you are wrong. Doctor Who is big world wide.

    Source? Because if they included Mary Poppins, who was written by an Australian, they should’ve included the Doctor.

    Lol @ Fox Moldur there’s different commentators for each country. That’s why you heard French ones and Ana heard Mexican ones and the Anon post heard Russian ones and I heard Ryan Seacrest (American.) That way everyone can understand it in their own language and stuff.
