Sounds a bit like Duran Duran crossed with Kraftwerk [with lush vocoders]

Released on cobalt blue vinyl when Tom Baker the Fourth Doctor was at his peak, this funky D.I.S.C.O re-working of the Ron Grainer theme would even make a Sontaran get down on the dancefloor. A vocodered vocal describes the character of the Doctor amid nice delays, bouncy bass and chirpy synths.

The B-side entitled Time Traveller is of no relation whatsoever and in my opinion is a waste of space. It would have better to have a Dub or Remix of the A-side.
