- Program Note from publisher

Doctor Who is a British science fiction television programme produced by the BBC since 1963. The programme depicts the adventures of a Time Lord called "the Doctor", an extraterrestrial being, to all appearances human. The Doctor explores the universe in a time-travelling space ship called the TARDIS. Its exterior appears as a blue British police box, which was a common sight in Britain in 1963 when the series first aired. Accompanied by a number of companions, the Doctor combats a variety of foes while working to save civilisations and help people in need.

The show is a significant part of British popular culture, and elsewhere it has gained a cult following.

Performance Notes

While the use of a theramin is optional in this arrangement, adding this iconic and distinctive sound, as heard in the original Dr. Who main theme, will add greatly to the overall effect and is quite easy to do.

On an iPad, use the GarageBand app and select the keyboard sound "Fifties Sci Fi" found in the "Leads" menu.
