"Doctor Who, the British time-traveling series, has proven remarkably resilient; created 48 years ago, its newest season premiered Saturday, setting a new ratings record for BBC America. Even more remarkable is the resiliency of its theme music (embedded below [ABOVE]). Swooping, hissing and pulsing with electronic verve, it manages to be at once haunting, goofy and ethereal. More than just a warbling masterpiece of TV music, it’s the best-known work of a ragtag group of technicians who unwittingly helped shape the course of 20th-century music."

  - “How the (Original) ‘Doctor Who’ Theme Changed Music,” William Weir in The Atlantic, April 27, 2011

The entire article is excellent.
