Zanderpants: I polled this at the start of January this year, and I said I’d repoll after the stetson episode aired. And so it has.
Whovians! Last we polled, the Fez won by a large majority. Now we’re set for Round II of this epic clash of headwear. What say you, Tumblr?
Is it the Fez? Or the Stetson?

"Doctor Who, the British time-traveling series, has proven remarkably resilient; created 48 years ago, its newest season premiered Saturday, setting a new ratings record for BBC America. Even more remarkable is the resiliency of its theme music (embedded below [ABOVE]). Swooping, hissing and pulsing with electronic verve, it manages to be at once haunting, goofy and ethereal. More than just a warbling masterpiece of TV music, it’s the best-known work of a ragtag group of technicians who unwittingly helped shape the course of 20th-century music."
