BBC Proms - 27th July 2008


The Doctor Who Prom features music from the BBC One series and classical favourites from composers such as Holst and Wagner, all based on the theme of space and time. The family concert also features a specially filmed scene written by Russell T Davies and starring David Tennant which we'll be posting on the Doctor Who website during the interval.

Music Man! What can you play?

The Doctor likes his music.

The Tenth Doctor was caught singing 'I could have danced all night' from My Fair Lady in The Girl in the Fireplace, and the character of Tallulah made an assumption that he liked musical theatre in Daleks in Manhattan. He also dabbled with playing a Cathedral organ in The Lazarus Experiment.

The Ninth Doctor demonstrated his musical abilities by playing an alien instrument for alien artefact collector, Henry Van Statten in Series One episode, Dalek.

The Seventh Doctor was a dab hand, playing the spoons!

The Sixth Doctor was known for bellowing out small snatches of opera.

The Fifth Doctor thwarted the plans of Rassilon on Gallifrey, by playing the harp which unlocked a secret room in the 25th Anniversary Special, The Five Doctors.

The Forth Doctor shattered glass with his singing!

The Third Doctor managed to send a monster to sleep by singing it a lullaby.

The Second Doctor was well known for giving us a tune on his recorder.

The First Doctor was seen in The Romans, disguised as Rome's most famous lyre-player.
