The Sounds Of Doctor Who: Radiophonic Workshop Rides Again


The BBC’s Radiophonic Workshop, which created theme tunes and sound effects for
programmes including Doctor Who and Blake’s 7, is to reopen after 14 years.

While much of the sound of today’s Doctor Who is down to the musical talents of Murray Gold, the early incarnation of the programme owed a lot of its atmosphere to the Radiophonic Workshop – not least the theme tune, which is quite unlike any other in TV history.
