‘Doctor Who’: Matt Smith’s pals croon a repurposed ‘Baby, It’s Cold Outside’

Dec. 14, 2013 | 10:00 a.m.

The 11th Doctor’s companions try to persuade “Doctor Who” star Matt Smith to stay just a little longer in a new take on Frank Loesser’s classic winter carol, “Baby, It’s Cold Outside.”

The “Regeneration Carol” fan video, from comedy and musical troupe Not Literally, features Smith look-alike Matt Elliott as the Time Lord while actresses dressed as Amy Pond, Clara Oswald and River Song serenade him, begging him not to regenerate.

“It’s time to run and remember,” croons Clara.

“How bittersweet this December,” the Doctor responds.

“You’ll be the same Doctor inside,” River reassures him.

“Maybe I’ll be ginger this time,” he says, perking up.
