Jo Whiley presents this unique performance celebrating the 60th anniversary of Doctor Who from Cardiff's Hoddinott Hall. Featuring the BBC National Orchestra of Wales and the BBC Singers conducted by Alastair King.
The music includes composer Murray Gold's best-known Doctor Who themes, including I Am the Doctor, The Long Song, Doomsday and Abigail's Song (Silence Is All You Know). The classic years of Doctor Who are also featured by the Radiophonic Workshop's Mark Ayres and Peter Howell as they hark back to the days of the Sea Devils, City of Death and The Five Doctors. And there are brand new works premiered including The Woman Who Fell to Earth, a full-length suite composed by Segun Akinola and three of Murray Gold's new works. These are heard here for the very first time before making their debut in the new season of Doctor Who in 2024.
Plus, Jo talks to the three Doctor Who showrunners of the modern era: Russell T. Davies, Chris Chibnall and Steven Moffat.
