Doctor Who goes to the Proms

Music to watch monsters go by

Mobile application security vulnerability report

Love Doctor Who, love the theme music - this is hardwired into the DNA of most Brits.

So clever old BBC leaned on this genetic flaw in July to work up a bit of a musical education for the masses with the Doctor Who Proms. On Monday, 6 September at 8.30pm the concert is broadcast on BBC 3 and on iPlayer soon afterwards, we guess.

In an eye witness account, 'Carl' describes the concert as the 'the most moving experience that I have known'. Somewhat over-egged, but all good, knockabout end of the universe stuff.

Matt Smith, Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill are on board as are sundry Silurians and scary monsters, along with Dr Who themes composed by Murray Gold.

Rounding out the concert is a series of bombastic classics. This includes Carl Orff's O Fortuna, from Carmina Burana, best known to old timers as the Old Spice theme tune, and to young'uns, the first 10 seconds anyway, as the backing for the entrance of Simon Cowell and his fellow judges on X Factor.

Then we have Wagner's Ride of The Valkyries - you know, the bit where the American helicopters attack the Vietnamese village in Apocalypse Now. And let's not forget Holst's Mars.
