Dr Who

Up to date as of January 31, 2010

From TARDIS Index File, the free Doctor Who reference.

Ghostbusters is a series of motion pictures popular in the late 20th century on Earth, which were distinguished by their theme song of the same title, which was a major success for American singer Ray Parker Jr. upon its first release in 1984.

The Doctor and Rose Tyler enjoyed a fun moment as they sang the theme song after the Doctor emerged from the TARDIS storage room wearing a piece of backpack-based gear similar in appearance to that worn by the titular characters in the film (and ironically with a similar purpose in mind -- dealing with alleged "ghosts"). (DW: Army of Ghosts)

Behind the scenes

Perhaps due to licensing issues, the actual melody of the song is not heard. Rather, a piece of background music suggestive of the song is heard while the Doctor quotes one line of the song "I ain't afraid of no ghosts!" as Rose calls out "Ghostbusters!" as heard in the song. No other lyrics are used.
