Ben Foster studied Composition and Conducting at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, where he graduated in 2000. He has been awarded the Lutosławski composition prize. He is also a graduate of the National Film and Television School.

Whilst working for Mcasso Music, he composed themes for a number of programmes for LWT (e.g. Love on a Saturday Night and The Great British Test Series) and various television adverts. Film-work includes The Mummy 3, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, and Robin Hood and he also worked on award winning adverts including Sony Paint and the 2007 Sony Walkman.

His involvement with Doctor Who kicked off in later 2005 as he became arranger and conductor for series composer Murray Goldl; this led to conducting the BBC National Orchestra of Wales for the Children In Need concert Doctor Who: A Celebration, and later both the 2008 and 2010 Proms at the Royal Albert Hall. He also composed the music for the first three series of Torchwood.

Most recently he conducted the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra in Doctor Who - A Symphonic Spectacular, which took place in February 2012 at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre in Australia.
