lyrics:

Summer sent a runner through the weather that I'm under for the feeling that I lost today
Summer sent a runner for the feeling that I lost today
Summer sent a runner through the weather that I'm under for the feeling that I lost today
Summer sent a runner for the feeling that I lost today

You must be somewhere in London
You must be loving your life in the rain
You must be somewhere in London
Walking Abbey Lane

I don't even think to make, I don't even think to make
I don't even think to make corrections

Put an ocean and a river between everybody else, between everything, yourself, and home
Put an ocean and a river between everything, yourself, and home

You must be somewhere in London
You must be loving your life in the rain
You must be somewhere in London
Walking Abbey Lane

I don't even think to make, I don't even think to make
I don't even think to make corrections

Famous angels never come through England
England gets the ones you never need
I'm in a Los Angeles cathedral
Minor singing airheads sing for me

Afraid of the heights, stay the night with the sinners
Afraid of the heights, stay the night with the sinners
Afraid of the heights 'cause they're desperate to entertain

This makes me very happy. I love ensemble vids, and I really love vids with a strong focus on the companions' journey. This is beautifully done. I love the parallels you draw between them. The sense of wonder comes through. I appreciate the time given to characters who weren't the "main" companion but who nevertheless traveled with the Doctor and were deeply touched by the experience, like Jack, Sarah Jane, Mickey, River, and Rory.

Strongly wanted to second this, and also say how much I enjoyed the various companion/companion relationships, the strong sense of their connections to each other. I still haven't seen a lot of RTD episodes, so some of these characters I was surprised to see share the screen with each other!

(Also I was glad to see Mels.)

A beautiful vid. Lovely ending, too.
