Only later on, Ya Kid K was allowed to appear. After the Timelords, the duo became The KLF. Originally, Bogaert used a model in order to promote the song. The Manual was re-released in 2002 with a new introduction. Bogaert later on worked together with different vocalists. The Timelords released one other product, a 1989 book called The Manual or How to Have a Number One the Easy Way, a tongue-in-cheek guide to scamming the music industry written by Drummond, a former music industry manager and A&R man. Together with Ya Kid K, he wrote the hit single Pump Up the Jam which meant the start of the Belgian hip hop scene. A more prosaic explanation for the name comes from the Time Lords, an alien race from the planet Gallifrey in Doctor Who.
Technotronic is a Belgian Techno band formed by Jo Bogaert in the late eighties. A photograph of the vehicle appeared on the sleeve of the Doctorin the Tardis single (the car was also credited for the song itself) and was prominently featured in a number of the group's music videos. Cauty and Drummond claimed the car then spoke to them, giving its name as Ford Timelord and advising the duo to adopt the name for themselves. According to group members Jimmy Cauty and Bill Drummond, the Timelords came about after their purchase of an American Ford Galaxie police car (which had allegedly been used in the film Superman IV filmed in the UK). The song is a mix of Gary Glitter's Rock and Roll, The Sweet's Blockbuster and the Doctor Who theme with sparse vocals inspired by Doctor Who and Harry Enfield's Loadsamoney character.Doctorin' the Tardis reached number one in the UK Singles Chart on 12 June, and also charted highly in Australia and New Zealand.
The Timelords was the name used by UK sampling outfit The Justified Ancients of Mu Mu for their 1988 novelty pop single Doctorin the Tardis, a No.1 hit in the UK.
