HAPPY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE! (With love from all of us at the DWFO!)
The Doctor Who Fan Orchestra are proud to present their sixth collaboration: “A Christmas Carol (Suite)”.
The suite contains the following themes: “Come Alond Pond”, “You Didn’t Hit The Boy”, “Fish”, “Babysitter”, “The Other Half’s Inside The Shark”, “He Comes Every Christmas”, “New Memories” and “Abigail’s Song” — all composed by Murray Gold.
The Doctor Who Fan Orchestra invites musical fans of Doctor Who to take part in an online collaborative celebration of Murray Gold’s music. Participants submitted recordings for this work from November to December 2012.
This final mix includes over 350 submissions from 241 individual participants, ranging in age from 12 to 80, and who are located in at least 25 different countries across the world.
The next piece will be “Amy’s Suite” - featuring some classic Amy themes as well as one or two surprises. To take part, look out for instructions in the upcoming promotional video.
How well do Doctor Who’s Matt Smith and Jenna-Louise Coleman know each other? Exceptionally well, if our afternoon of Christmas shopping is the true indicator. We took the pair to Manhattan’s ornament-bonanza store It’s Always Christmas in the City and set them off to pick out hyper-specific “bits and bobs” that fit their co-star’s personality. Even though they haven’t been working together very long — Coleman is officially the Doctor’s new companion beginning with the show’s Christmas special, airing Dec. 25 on BBC America — they succeeded in surprising each other with some very thoughtful (and strange) choices.
Matt was obsessed with the Gummi Bears cartoon. That is all.
Apologies for the unavoidable autoplay.
The above is just a clip. We highly suggest listening to the entire show here (Matt Smith and Jenna Louise Coleman come in around 1:36:00.)

The Daleks first appeared 49 years ago this month when the TARDIS visited the strange and sinister planet known as Skaro…
To celebrate the Doctor’s oldest alien adversaries we’re beginning a short series of videos which feature Doctor Who’s lead writer and Executive Producer, Steven Moffat, discussing their history. He selects a number of stories that are amongst his favourites and the most significant Dalek adventures, beginning, appropriately enough, with the Daleks’ debut from December, 1963.
Jenna-Louise Coleman talks about the audition process and teaming up with Matt Smith.
Clicky the image. Or clicky these here words.
