Doctor Who Theme

One of the most memorable TV theme melodies. The ‘B’ section in particular has a quality that is very sweet and very British-sounding.

“The Doctor Who theme music is a piece of music written by Australian composer Ron Grainer and realised by Delia Derbyshire at the BBC Radiophonic Workshop. Created in 1963, it was one of the first electronic music signature tunes for television.”
