Doctor Who returns to The BBC Proms this Weekend

July 12th, 2013 by Marc Comments

The Doctor Who proms kick off this weekend, in which composer Murray Golds iconic themes will be performed at the Royal Albert Hall, alongside interactive performances by the cast and crew of the show.

This year’s two Doctor Who Proms are understandably very popular, with advanced tickets selling out in a matter of hours, but there are still more than 1,000 standing places for just £5 each but they are only available on the day. If you are unable to make it, every Prom is broadcast live on BBC Radio 3, so everyone can enjoy the festivities wherever they are.

The Doctor Who Proms will also be shown on BBC One later in the year. The BBC proms has been dubbed the world’s largest music festival and alongside the doctor who performances there will be 75 concerts over the course of eight weeks, including operatic and classical scores.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
