Doctor Who returns to the Proms to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the popular BBC series. As well as showcasing Murray Gold’s music from the past eight years, the concert also journeys back to the early days of Doctor Who and the groundbreaking work of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop. Featuring special guests from the series, big screens and a host of monsters ready to invade the Royal Albert Hall, this is not the year to be exterminated!
London Philharmonic Choir and BBC National Orchestra of Wales under Ben Foster, with actor Matt Smith. The programme includes Murray Gold's Music from the 'Doctor Who' series, and other music appearing in it, including the 'Habañera' from Bizet’s 'Carmen Suite No 2', Debussy’s ‘La fille aux cheveux de lin’ and Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in D minor.
(Note: 2pm at Royal College of Music, join the Proms Family Orchestra and Chorus in creating its own 'Doctor Who' soundtrack. You will be able to sign up for this event online from Monday Jun 10 2013.)
