Dancing Pertwee

It's the dancing Jon Pertwee screensaver - The Doctor gets down with his bad self!

We've made this screensaver. Jon dances. All you have to do is download and install it. Then, choose your favourite tune, bung on a CD and watch MC 'Doc' Pertwee cut a rug.

As soon as they stopped hyperventilating from the hysteria, the Cult team tried Jon with their favourite hands-in-the-air dance numbers.

James would recommend listening to 'Here and Now' by Steps.
Ann goes for Lois Da Silva 'Touch Me'.
Rob thinks Dee Lite's 'Groove is in the Heart' rocks Jon's world.
Kim recommends Wildchild's 'The Renegade Master' (the Fatboy Slim mix), or banging hard house.

Download Screensaver: Windows Version (1.4MB File)

We're sorry, but the screensaver is only available for PCs, running Windows 3.1, 95, 98, 2000, ME and NT.

How to download and install your screensaver:

Download and save the file to your hard-drive by clicking on the link below. Remember where you save it - you'll need to find it in the next step!

Download Windows Version (1.48MB File).

Find the file, and double-click it: it should automatically load into your file extraction application (e.g. Winzip).

Once you have un-zipped the file, double-click the install_throwingshapes.exe executable file. The screensaver will automatically install itself.

The screensaver's controls are accessible through the Screensaver tab of your computer's Display Control panel. Find this in the Settings | Control Panels submenu of your Start Menu, or by right-clicking on your desktop and choosing Properties from the pop-up menu.

Please note that although the screensaver's controls have a sound setting, the screensaver contains NO SOUND. The whole idea is that you get to choose what music Jon dances to...

You may need to download the Winzip file extractor to access the screensaver. For more help and instructions, please visit the Webwise Guide.
