New Theme Tune & Sequence for Christmas Special!
The BBC’s official Doctor Who website has announced that a “revamped theme tune and opening title sequence” will grace the Christmas episode.
“We can’t give too much away about the new-look titles except to say they are wonderfully dramatic and striking, with a couple of unexpected touches. In short, they’re a perfect way to welcome back the Doctor!
“This new arrangement remains true to the original, written by Ron Grainer back in 1963, but on Christmas Day you’ll hear it as it’s never sounded before. This latest version is more thrilling and powerful but retains that slightly scary quality that remains stirring no matter how many times you catch it.”
From 5.15pm on Christmas Day on BBC One and 9/8c on BBC America you will be able to catch The Snowmen and its new theme tune arrangement.
What are you expecting? Do you want a new, bassy, mysterious theme tune, evoking the original arrangement or for Ron Grainer’s legendary composition to take on a whole new shape?
