Normally on Fridays I like to drop in a music video, and at the moment the mini-series is looking at animated ones, but since this is the week of
Doctor Who, I thought we should do things very slightly differently.
Let’s step back no less than fifty years for the original theme, recorded by the legendary
Delia Derbyshire. The video and remastering was completed in 2009 by Mark Ayres and the Doctor Who Restoration Team.
This week everybody who cares is celebrating the fiftieth anniversary of
Doctor Who, and this blog is no exception. It’s also an ideal occasion to put together a Who-themed Playlist for stowaways.
Some of the music and sounds are from the series directly. Others are from the BBC Radiophonic Workshop; tributes to the series; or other things that are generally related and seemed to fit.
You can hear it here.
