Composer Murray Gold overcame a childhood fear of the original Doctor Who theme and now writes music for the new series

Growing up in the 1970s in Portsmouth, England, Gold would jam his fingers in his ears whenever the music - courtesy of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop - was on television. More recently, the award-winning composer has written music for the cult sci-fi series.
On Saturday he will play piano with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra as part of the Doctor Who Symphonic Spectacular.
The concert is inspired by the BBC Doctor Who Proms at Royal Albert Hall in London in 2010. It will include appearances by Daleks, Cybermen, Judoon, Clockwork Robots and one of the doctor’s latest monstrous opponents, The Silence.
Gold has written soundtracks for the past two series of Doctor Who, and his music will be included in the concert.
