The “Doctor Who” opening that was cut by the producers from Craig Ferguson’s show…

… with Matt Smith, the number 11 Dr. Who. I don’t know why they cut this… perhaps because too many Americans, even after 30 years of Dr. Who showing up on Public Television don’t know this SciFi series.

In reality, the intro was axed at the last minute due to rights issues (what, the title tune music?), and Ferguson subsequently called on fans to start a public campaign to get the clip online by any means necessary. The campaign took shape on Twitter via the #leaktheclip hashtag, and now just a few weeks later, the intro has indeed found its way to the Internet….

There… wasn’t that fun?
