Doctor Who at the BBC Proms 2013


As we announced earlier this week - see HERE - the BBC Proms 2013 is to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who with two special concerts during the summer. Taking place on Saturday July 13 at 7.30pm and on Sunday July 14 at 10am (at the Royal Albert Hall), the concerts have the following details: 

Murray Gold
Music from the Doctor Who series and other music from the series, including 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

London Philharmonic Choir
BBC National Orchestra of Wales
Ben Foster (conductor)
Doctor Who returns to the Proms to celebrate the 50th 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!

So will we get any Dudley? I'd love to hear a full orchestral version of City of Death...
