Matt Smith carries the Olympic Torch

Doctor Who on the Olympic Playlist!

Matt Smith carries the Olympic TorchThe London Olympics, a time for Britain to spend millions on making the capital look all shiny for a couple of weeks and clog up the train services to make them even more unbearable.

However, whilst it may be an overblown pat on the back it’s still a time to reflect on what makes England and especially London so wonderful.

As the preparations near their end, a massive 86 track playlist of music to accompany the opening ceremonies has apparently been revealed by the director of the opening ceremonies  Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, 28 Days Later, Slumdog Millionaire). However, Olympic officials will not confirm if it is the soundtrack that will definitely be used. It does however give a good indication of what we can expect musically that will reflect London’s rich history, and Boyle being the television patriot he is, has included the Doctor Who theme!

Bear in mind that this has not been confirmed as the official playlist but how cool would it be as the ceremonies take place for the theme of a lifetime to be pumping through the speakers and listened to by millions all over the world?

Other artists on the list included The Beatles, Oasis, Coldplay, The Chemical Brothers, Muse, Blur and even the EastEnders theme but let’s face it, we’d watch all of the ceremonies just to see the Doctor Who theme play to make life a little bit more like Fear Her.


What happens when an eight year old kid watches the 1993 repeat run of Planet of the Daleks? He pretty much ends up here writing about the show that grabbed hold of him and never let go!
