The band confirmed in 2014 that they were breaking up for two reasons. The first was that they were fed up with the 7th series of the revival and therefore didn't feel inspired to write new content. The second was that Alex and Edd ended up in scandals on consent ([[Administrivia/RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgement best to just leave it there]]) which ended friendships in the group.

* BreakingTheFourthWall: Usually the songs seem to be completely in universe, being sung either by the characters themselves or a third-person narrator.

* TitleDrop: The song "Still Not Ginger" drops in the "Still Got Legs", and in "Awful Lot of Running" they quote Donna and the band's name with "''You know, you could fix that Chameleon Circuit if...."''. The title to "Blink" basically made up the chorus.
** They also drop in titles from the show itself. The song "Doctor What" replaced that line with "Who" a couple times, and in "Mr. Pond" Rory says "Well, I guess it's [[Recap/DoctorWhoS31E7AmysChoice Amy's Choice...]]"

A band dedicated to writing songs based on the TV show ''Series/DoctorWho''. The band consists of Charlie [=McDonnell=], also known by his Website/YouTube moniker CharlieIsSoCoolLike; Creator/AlexDay, also known as Nerimon; Michael Aranda; Ed Blann, better known as Eddplant; Creator/LiamDryden; and formerly, Chris Beattie. In the vein of the Harry-Potter-based concept of "Wizard Rock", the band single-handedly created the genre of music called "Time Lord Rock", often shortened to "trock". While the majority of their songs are rock, some of them can be more mellow, or more like pop, and that's not even talking about what the genre as a whole can contain. The songs focus mainly on "New-Who" (post-2005), although many of the songs are applicable to either the Classic series or the show as a whole.

* TroubledProduction: They had something of a bad luck stream with producers for their first two albums. The first time their producer outright left them, and despite their earnest attempts they couldn't find a new one who had the proper equipment to play the tapes with their half-finished songs. Eventually they gave up and released the album uncompleted. The second time, they found a much better producer and all seemed to be going well... until he got stuck in France. However, thanks to a donation by Red Bull, they were able to arrange for the album to be finished ''in'' France and got to release the final product exactly how they wanted it.
