Proving once again that Doctor Who has one of the most inventive fandoms out there, Whovians have made a hilarious Barbie-inspired video in honour of new Doctor Ncuti Gatwa's role as a Ken in Greta Gerwig's acclaimed movie.


It's probably not something you'd ever pictured, but the clip features Doctor Who characters, from Doctors to companions and villains, singing Aqua's Barbie Girl.

David Tennant, as the Tenth Doctor, delivers the first "Barbie", while Tom Baker's Doctor, Catherine Tate's Donna and even Davros also make appearances.

The clip ends with the Autons bopping along to the iconic track.

The video was shared on Twitter by the account @DoctorWhoSings, who posted the ingenious creation with the caption: "In honour of #NcutiGatwa appearing as Ken in the #Barbie movie, here's a bunch of #DoctorWho characters singing #Aquas famous #BarbieGirl!"

The fandom was quick to respond in the comments, with one fan reacting: "Adric's takes the prize for me on this one, but the Brig and Davros aren't far behind."

"I love the dancing Autons," another said, also giving the creators props for splitting the word "imagination" across two Dalek variants.
