article imageThird Doctor Who Prom announced for 50th anniversary

By Mathew Wace Peck     Apr 20, 2013 in Entertainment
July will see the third Doctor Who Prom, which is being staged over two days as part of the 50th-anniversary celebrations of the BBC’s science-fiction drama series.
The event will take place at London’s Royal Albert Hall, where Doctor Who’s music maestro, Murray Gold, will appear alongside the London Philharmonic Choir. Also in attendance will be the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, conducted by Ben Foster.
Matt Smith spoke about it to BBC News, “I love the Albert Hall. I love the Proms. I love classical music. I think it’s a great thing to see all of Murray’s really brilliant score over the years come to life.”
The Doctor Who Prom will feature special guests from the series, big screens and a host of monsters from the television series.
According to Doctor Who News, this year’s Doctor Who Prom will showcase “Murray Gold’s music from the past eight years [and] journeys back to the early days of Doctor Who and the groundbreaking work of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop.”
Other music to be performed includes the “Habanera” from Bizet’s Carmen Suite No. 2, Debussy’s “La fille aux cheveux de lin” and Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in D minor.
The BBC Proms is an annual event. The first Doctor Who-inspired Prom took place in 2008; the second in 2010.
Tonight (Saturday, 21 April), Hide, by Neil Cross, marks the midway point for the current batch of eight brand-new Doctor Who episodes.
The series is due to end on Saturday, 18 May, with The Name of the Doctor, by Steven Moffat. Then, after a break for the summer, a number of Doctor Who specials are due to follow.
