Doctor Who: The Theme

The Definitive Guide to the Doctor Who Theme Music

Welcome to what aims to be the definitive guide to the theme music for long-running BBC science fiction series Doctor Who. This site covers the legacy of the original Doctor Who theme, composed in 1963 by Ron Grainer, realised by Delia Derbyshire and the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, re-imagined 17 years later by the Workshop's Peter Howell, and further re-interpreted during the series' run by freelance composers Dominic Glynn and Keff McCulloch.
