Thank Who for the music: Doctor Who announces symphonic spectacular concerts across the UK

Doctor Who composer Murray Gold's array of epic, emotive scores is going on tour, with the critically-acclaimed live music concert Doctor Who Symphonic Spectacular set to make its UK premiere in six major cities in May 2015.

The live show, which was a sell-out hit in Australia, will have a limited run of 12 UK performances in London, Cardiff, Birmingham, Leeds, Newcastle and Glasgow.

Ben Foster, who conducts and orchestrates the musical scores for the TV series, will lead the BBC National Orchestra of Wales and members of the BBC National Chorus of Wales through the Gold's music – including new material composed for the forthcoming series eight – in a show that will feature over 100 performers.  

Much like the Doctor Who proms, the event will also play host to the Doctor’s most famous adversaries, including the Daleks and Cybermen, who will interact with the audience. The live music will be set to a big screen presentation of key moments and specially edited sequences from the past 50 years of Doctor Who, and will be hosted by a special guest who will be unveiled next year. 

Tickets will go on general sale at 9am on Friday 1st August 2014, with prices starting at £20 per person. The full list of venues and times are below.
