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 is lovely. I'm sure I'm missing nuances from the context, but I really like how the lack of the Doctor really focuses the story on the other parts of the companions' stories--their reactions to the TARDIS, the things they see, their heroism, the connections they make with each other.

I loved this! All the parallels between the companions, all the wonder, the sadness and the joy!

I love the parallels; this whole vid feels like a journey.

This is BEAUTIFUL. It made me cry from feels and happiness. You always get the emotional heart of Doctor Who just right. I have to say you are pretty much my favorite Doctor Who vidder, period. I might have said that before, but it bears repeating.

Very nice! I was thinking it was a little slow at the start, but it really picks up beautifully through the whole vid. I like to think of the companions as a community, and this really shows it.

This is such a lovely, comprehensive retrospective. It's stitched together with the best kind of loving nostalgia.

Oh, my, that was LOVELY. I love how the focus is entirely on the companions, and the Doctor hardly shows up at all.

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.
