Doctor Whorld Music

Regular readers will know how much we like the quirky Doctor Who stuff, not to mention variations on the theme tune – so what better than a world music trio performing the legendary theme tune?

This appeared on Australian music quiz show Spicks and Specks (think Never Mind the Buzzcocks) this week, and features a steel string acoustic guitar, a cello – and a didgeridoo! Get ready for Manta’s interpretation of the Doctor Who theme tune!

It’s certainly a memorable rendition of Ron Grainer’s classic tune, and while it is a million miles away from the Delia Derbyshire arrangement we all love, it’s also quite different from the current incarnation of the tune.

Now of course there is very little chance of the tune heralding a new adventure in this form – but wouldn’t it be great to feature this superb trio in the show somehow?

Manta are Russell Smith, Ashley Naylor and Theo Chen – and they’re a signed act! To find out more, check out Manta’s website at
