If you weren’t at the Royal Albert Hall for the Doctor Who Proms back in July, make a note in your diary… You can enjoy highlights of the concert’s visual splendour as well as the magical music when Doctor Who at the Proms premieres on BBC One this Monday at 4pm.
Hey i WAS at the Doctor Who Proms and I’m still gonna be watching this.
The Doctor Who Proms was one of the greatest fanboy experiences I have ever had. I wanted to go since I watched the 1st one on TV in 2008. Even missing out on tickets when they went on sale last May didn’t stop me from going to London on my own, to stand outside the RAH for 5 hr in the hope of getting a daypromer ticket.
It payed off and I was rewarded for my persistence and mild sunstroke with one of the most amazing musical experiences ever.
Murray Gold’s music on Doctor Who enhances and MAKES every episode but it doesn’t truly hit home how epic it is until you experience stood in front of the London Philharmonic Choir and the BBC National Orchestra of Wales. All the while scenes from Doctor Who past and present are shown on screens above the stage.
If you ever get the chance, attend the proms. It will stay with you forever.
