"What Doctor Is This?"

What Doctor Is This?

(sung to the tune of "Greensleeves")

What man is this who answers to

The maiden calling for “Doctor”?

He’s strong, he’s brave, he’s confident,

But he doesn’t remember the others.

John Smith will join him now,

Companion with Rosita.

Search for his missing past,

Discover the Doctor’s future.

The reverend’s house is full of clues,

Some infostamps are hidden.

The Cybermen attack the Doc,

But John defends him unbidden.

Meanwhile, Miss Hartigan

Attacks the mourners with Cybermen,

Spared four to make them slaves

To bring her poor London’s children.

The Doctor now returns to home.

A stable filled with a dead man’s things.

They’re Jackson Lake’s, a traveler,

The Cybers’ wrath incurring.

Doctor, your TARDIS flies

On heated gas, its tethers tie.

John sees your missing past.

Now, do you want to know?

Now, Jackson Lake, he came to town

And met the Cybers planning.

He shot them with the infostamp

But his brain it also was spanning.

Ten men, it showed to him,

The hero that could help him win.

Run from the painful past,

And Jackson became the Doctor.

There’s more to it, because there is

Too many trunks for just one man.

He lost his wife in the fearsome fight,

And from that mem’ry he ran.

Elsewhere, Miss Hartigan

Set children to their laborin'.

Fooled pawn of the Cybermen,

She’s now the Cyberking.

Oh, Jackson and the Doctor,

What will you find in the children’s lair?

A boy who runs to Jackson’s arms:

He’s found his son so fair.

“Go, go, protect your son.

You’ve found him now, your work is done.

Leave me to fight the King,

You have something to live for.”

The Doctor flies the balloon on high

To see Miss Hartigan’s glory.

He offers her the chance to leave,

To change the end of her story.

“Here is what you’ve become,

The sorrow, pain, what you have done.”

She stops, at last repents,

And he sends the wreck to the Void.

The Doctor shows the TARDIS to

His friend, his mate that is Jackson.

It’s all a treat, but where are they,

The bright and shining companions?

No, no, he’s all alone,

His friends all call other places home.

Go, go, and dine with Lake,

In mem’ry of those who we’ve lost.

Thanks! This is one of my favorite episodes. I know it's not popular, but I love the layers of story in it.

I see what you mean—I don't really like the episode itself, but the idea of it is quite interesting :)
