This week, the BBC National Orchestra of Wales are recording the new Doctor Who soundtrack at the BBC Hoddinott Hall in Cardiff.
The music will be heard for the first time in Planet of the Dead, which airs in a few weeks, and new scores are also being recorded for the remaining 3 special episodes.
“We are thrilled that the orchestra records the soundtrack for this special programme and is associated with the BBC Wales series,” said David Murray, director of the orchestra. “The opportunity to perform a different style of music helps to showcase the diversity of the orchestra.”
It’s also the first time the Doctor Who soundtrack will have been recorded at the Hoddinott Hall, which offers new and exciting recording and performing facilities which are set to improve the quality of the music in the series.
This news has also sparked speculation that a new arrangement of the theme tune is being planned for the special episode
