Trocking Out

1 hour 30 minutes – Chameleon Circuit – Journey’s End:

In the Doctor Who Magazine reader’s poll, fans who came to Doctor Who with the new series voted Journey’s End the best Doctor Who story of all time, also placing the other series finales in their top 5 and relegating Caves of Androzani to number 10. So as we featured a funny plot synopsis comic of Caves of Androzani, we feel Journey’s End also deserves the treatment.

Luckily Chameleon Circuit have fit the bill perfectly with this track from their debut self-titled album, available from DFTBA records, from iTunes and Amazon MP3. Thanks to DFTBA records and the band for permission to use this track.
