Doctor Who, and the six billion year old iPod?

UPDATE: The video has been removed at the request of the BBC.

I watched the 2 premier episodes of Doctor Who last night, on the SciFi channel. I’m really glad they played 2 episodes. If they had stopped after the first one, I may have written the show off, as crap.

Although I didn’t like the first episode, I thought the second one was great! It was quintessential Doctor Who. It totally captured the flavor of the show I watched as a kid.

I especially liked this scene. It takes place six billion years in our future. Our sun is about to expand, destroying the earth, and a group of aliens have gathered to watch the final moments. The “last human” is handing out gifts from earth’s past, and one of them is an iPod… well, sort of.

The “iPod” is said to “store classical music from humanities greatest composers”… What song does it play? Why the classic 1982 hit, Tainted Love, by Soft Cell, of course.
