Things We Saw Today: Watch Jodie Whittaker Perform the Doctor Who Theme Song Live for Lady Gaga

Graham Norton is known for having some fun and wacky clips, but this might be one of my absolute faves. Surrounded by an almost obnoxiously attractive group of guests, Norton asked Ryan Gosling about the use of the theremin in the Neil Armstrong biopic First Man. The theremin, of course, is the instrument used in the Doctor Who theme song. What a coincidence, I’m sure, that Jodie Whittaker happened to also be in that attractive group of guests. And that Graham Norton just happened to have a theremin on hand. (Who doesn’t?!)

So here’s a fun sentence I get to type: Please take a moment and watch Jodie Whittaker perform the Doctor Who theme song on Graham Norton’s theremin, while Lady Gaga, Ryan Gosling, and Bradley Cooper watch.

Happy Friday! You’ve earned it.
