We know the Doctor is partial to a Jammie Dodger, but across the Channel, the Time Lord is helping create even more impressive pastry-feats. It turns out that in France, Le Meilleur Pâtissier (“The Best Baker” en Anglais) opens with the most epic music in the Whoniverse.
Specifically, the baking competition greets viewers with I Am the Doctor, a tune we first heard in Matt Smith’s debut outing as the Time Lord in series 5’s The Eleventh Hour. Composed by Murray Gold, it’s the blockbuster song that plays during The Doc’s most epic turns, the magnificent melody we hear when the Time Lord reveals the day isn’t lost and the universe will be saved from destruction.
And now it’s used to recap Dessert Week.
We can’t say it’s a bad choice of music – it’s certainly blood-pumping and seems to fit the footage, as several Reddit users noted. But it’s a tune that now makes us really really want to see Gallifrey’s finest embark on a Bake Off adventure.
