A live musical invasion! Vision Nine and BBC Worldwide are delighted to announce the UK premiere of a new version of the hugely popular Doctor Who Symphonic Spectacular. The live show, which was a sell-out on its world premiere in Australia, celebrates the world's longest running science fiction TV series, and showcases the evocative and thrilling music written by Murray Gold for the series since 2005 and features over 100 performers including the BBC National Orchestra of Wales and members of the BBC National Chorus of Wales, conducted by Ben Foster. The Doctor Who Symphonic Spectacular will enjoy a run of thirteen UK performances in London, Cardiff, Birmingham, Leeds, Newcastle and Glasgow. The guest presenter for the UK performances of the Doctor Who Symphonic Spectacular in May 2015 will be Peter Davison. Davison, who portrayed the Fifth Doctor on the BBC One series between 1981 and 1984, also acted as presenter for the Doctor Who Symphonic Spectacular shows in Australia and New Zealand at the beginning of 2014 and will reprise this role in 2015. The show will feature a host of the Doctor's famous adversaries; previous productions have included the iconic Daleks, the awe-inspiring Cybermen, the spine-chilling Silence and many more fan favourites. The live monsters provide a dramatic counterpoint to the evocative and thrilling music written by Murray Gold, responsible for the last eight years of epic Doctor Who music including the record-breaking (and BAFTA award-winning) 50th anniversary episode "The Day of the Doctor". The show will also feature Murray's new music for and footage from the latest season of Doctor Who, which introduced Peter Capaldi as the Twelfth Doctor and which has been broadcast around the world this year. The live music will be accompanied by a big screen presentation of key moments and specially edited sequences from the past 50 years of Doctor Who.
