For those of you that aren’t already aware, the Doctor Who Symphonic Spectacular is due to start touring the UK next week – just in time for half term!
From May 23rd if you’re in (or can get to) London, Cardiff, Birmingham, Leeds, Newcastle or Glasgow, you can see the BBC National Orchestra of Wales and Chorus of Wales, along with 5th Doctor Peter Davison, celebrate the amazing music of the world’s longest running science fiction TV series.
The show features a host of the Doctor’s famous adversaries including the iconic Daleks and Cybermen, the spine-chilling Silence and many more fan favourites. The live monsters provide a dramatic contrast to the award-winning and very popular music written by Murray Gold, who has been responsible for composing music for the series over the last eight years, including the record-breaking (and BAFTA award-winning) 50th anniversary episode Doctor Who: The Day of the Doctor.
The show also features Murray’s latest score and footage from series 8 of Doctor Who, starring Peter Capaldi, which was one air at the end of last year.
The live music will be accompanied by a big screen presentation of key moments from Doctor Who in specially edited video sequences.
Peter Davison said “I’m very excited to be hosting the Doctor Who Symphonic Spectacular in the UK. Doctor Who fans are an extraordinary, wonderful bunch, who are very passionate about the series. The Symphonic Spectacular has already proved to be a monster hit down under with thousands of fans packing into arenas across the southern hemisphere and the UK’s first ever tour promises to be even bigger.”
