Doctor Who: A Celebration was a concert performed at the Wales Millennium Centre on 19th November 2006 to help raise money for Children in Need. It was performed by the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, conducted by Ben Foster, and was hosted by then current Doctor David Tennant.
The concert featured music from the first two series of Doctor Who, with on-stage performances to accompany themed suites, including Ood, Cybermen and the Daleks. There was also a performance of the especially composed song for that Christmas's The Runaway Bride, plus a clip from the upcoming episode.
The concert was broadcast live on BBC Radio Wales, and then shown over the Christmas on television via the BBC's Red Button service.
