For the fans who were unable to attend the 2013 Doctor Who Prom back in July, despair not – you can catch it on BBC One next week!

On Monday 26th August (a Bank Holiday in the UK), BBC One will be airing the event in its entirety from 4pm.

The Prom was a musical celebration of the show’s 50th anniversary, featuring Murray Gold’s work from the revival of the series, as well as music from the classic series, featuring the legendary BBC Radiophonic Workshop.

Several special guests also made an appearance at the concert, including current Doctor and companion, Matt Smith and Jenna Coleman. The event also marked the debut of Gold’s brand new composition, Song for Fifty, his musical tribute to the past 50 years of Doctor Who.

The reactions to the song have been mixed, but I thought it was a moving addition to a stellar evening of music. Will you be tuning in on Monday?


“That’s bacon! Are you trying to poison me?” And from that line on, I’ve been unable to stop watching, reading, musing about the Doctor. As a recent transplant to the Whoniverse, I’ve been trying to soak up as much Who-related knowledge as possible. That journey has taken me from the Tenth Planet to the Fields of Trenzalore and gently set me at the edge of my seat for what’s next. It’s an honor to be here and I plan to bring a unique perspective. I hope you’ll enjoy the journey alongside me.
