"Circle of Life" was a song from The Lion King accidentally quoted by the Tenth Doctor when discussing humanity's potential with the Sycorax on 25 December 2006. The lyrics he quoted were:

From the day they arrived on the planet
And, blinking, stepped into the sun.
There is more to see, than can ever be seen
More to do than—

(TV: The Christmas Invasion)

Behind the scenes Edit

  • Elton John sings the original version of the song. The song title does not get a mention on-screen. The original lyrics are actually slightly different to the ones quoted by the Doctor — the first line is, "From the day we arrive on the planet", not "they arrive".
