Who at the Royal Albert Hall: Prom 2013 highlights

July 15th, 2013

This weekend, thousands of Doctor Who fans headed to the Royal Albert Hall for this year’s Doctor Who Prom!

The sun was a-shinin’ down on London and all the monsters were waiting in the wings as the National Orchestra of Wales took to the stage for a musical extravaganza celebrating 50 years of ‘Who-sic’. Fans were treated to a playlist of Murray Gold’s epic tracks with I am the Doctor, The Final Chapter of Amelia Pond and The Rings of Akhaten among the concert’s highlights, and there was a Classic Series medley too!

There were plenty of surprises for the audience as stars Matt Smith and Jenna Coleman appeared in the orchestra. With special appearances from Vastra and Strax, Fifth Doctor Peter Davison and the original companion – the Doctor’s grand daughter Susan – Carole Ann Ford, everyone came together in order to commemorate half a century of the one, the only and the best with the debut of Murray’s original, heartwarming Song for Fifty
