This coming Saturday, a British institution celebrates its fiftieth anniversary. The television series Doctor Who is 50 years old this week. Why is that relevant, when this is a blog about electronic music? Well, surprising though it may seem, Doctor Who has had a significant influence on the sort of music we write about on this blog, whether directly (many musicians including Kylie Minogue and Pet Shop Boys have taken design influences from the series) or indirectly (Delia Derbyshire was one of the earliest electronic musicians in history).
So this week we’ll celebrate the anniversary with reviews, a chart, a playlist, videos, and more, all with a Doctor Who theme. Just not necessarily the Doctor Who Theme.
