Arthur Darvill does Frozen... and it's incredible

Arthur Darvill's got a bone to pick, and he's doing it to the tune of Frozen's number one hit Let It Go.

The former Doctor Who paid a visit to BBC Radio 1 where he performed The Ballad of Arthur Darvill, showcasing some impressive vocals as he jokingly lamented, "Let It Go, Let It Go, I'm not in Doctor Who anymore." 

The 31-year-old "real actor" - who portrayed Rory Williams in the BBC sci-fi series before departing with Karen Gillan back in 2012 - is currently treading the boards in the West End musical Once... and he wants fans to know about it ("I am in a West End play/It's called Once and tickets are available every day").

Check out the full lyrics - and watch the video - below:

Wherever I go people say to me, "Hey, are you that guy?
Doctor who’s companion, Rory Williams," and I sigh.
I want to tell them there is more to me than this,
I’m not just a bloke riding a Tardis,
I am an actor in a fable, I didn’t get captured by a weeping angel,
You need to know my own story,
I’m not Rorryyyy.
Let it go, let it go, I’m not in Doctor Who anymore,
Let it go, let it go, because now I’m treading the boards,
I am in a West End play,
It’s called Once and tickets are available every day.
It’s true, I know Matt Smith, we’ve battled some villains,
The Daleks weren’t the worst ones – that was Karen Gillan.
People they shout "EXTERMINATE!" when they see me, it really isn’t great,
All that it needs is a Google search to see that I’m in Broadchurch.
Let it go, let it go, you won’t see me at ComicCon,
Let it go, Jesus, let it go – my sci-fi days are gone,
I am a real actor, I can sing as well,
My agent is contactable every day.
