The Doctor At BBC Proms 2010
Doctor Who is on its way to its second Proms!Â On Saturday 24th July, a live Radio 3 broadcast of the event featuring Matt Smith and Karen Gillan will showcase both classical music and Murray Gold’s fantastic Doctor Who compositions!
“Doctor Who (Matt Smith) and his assistant, Amy Pond (Karen Gillan), join the BBC National Orchestra of Wales and the London Philharmonic Choir for an action-packed evening. Monsters from the current run of the hugely successful BBC series threaten to disrupt proceedings. Only the Doctor â€“ ably assisted by conductors Ben Foster and Grant Llewellyn â€“ can save the day.”

If you’ve never seen or have a hard time remembering the last time Doctor Who was at Proms, which was in 2008, have a look at the first 10 minutes!Â The rest of the event is also on YouTube if you hunt around a little bit in the “related videos” section.Â The clip below managed to distract me from writing this, so it’s definitely worth a watch!
Listen to this year’s Doctor Who Prom and hear the audience’s reactions next Saturday from 7:30 to 9:45PM on BBC Radio 3 or iPlayer!Â Since it’s the radio version of iPlayer, it’s available internationally; everyone on the planet can tune in live so long as they account for their time zone!
