Resources #3 - Record Collector 209

It is no exaggeration to say that the Doctor Who discography published by Record Collector in January 1997 motivated us to create TME. We were captivated by the details of re-issues, remixes and collectable releases, and were determined to bring a fully anotated, illustrated and expanded version to the internet. Over the course of the decade since its publication, we have come to realise that some of the releases (particularly the re-issues) on that list were bogus, or mis-printed; and that there were dozens of ommissions to chronicle, as well as many post-1996 releases to document, too. But we still have a massive soft spot for the original article, and so here is the entire text (missing only the interview with Delia Derbyshire, which did go on a bit), errors and all; please do not take everything as definitive, since there is an entire website behind you that painstakingly corrects it! (although the discrephancies still make Kev's forehead crumble into a pained frown...)

Doctor Who Goes Pop!

TRAVELLING THROUGH TIME AND SPACE ON A QUEST TO DISCOVER THE AUDIO SPIN-OFFS FROM THE CLASSIC TV SERIES, MICHAEL RICHARDSON INVESTIGATES A GREAT BRITISH INSTITUTION

One of TV's most timeless characters, 'Doctor Who', was launched in Britain at 5.15 on the afternoon of Saturday 23rd November 1963. President Kennedy had been dead just a few hours, an event which over-shadowed and delayed the first episode, 'An Unearthly Child'. The idiosyncratic time-travelling Doctor became a regular and much-loved fixture of our screens until the show's cancellation in the late 80s, and even though the series now lies in TV limbo, its legacy lives on through repeats, novels and a thriving fan network.

Earlier this year, the BBC continued the adventure with an American-backed feature-length TV adventure which scandalised the purists with the Doctor's newly-acquired half-human heritage and first on-screen kiss, but which raised hopes that the Timelord might yet return to our screens on a regular basis.

Like most successful TV series, 'Doctor Who' spawned its share of spin-offs, from the Dalek costumes that were an essential ingredient of kids' parties in 1965, through to countless magazines, books, games and toys. And as usual, the programme's theme music soon appeared on record, spearheading a procession of Who-related discs, ranging from endless reworkings of that original theme to a shameless novelty from rock's most notorious art-terrorists, the KLF, which reached No. 1 some 25 years on.

Back in March 1963, BBC TVs Head of Drama, Canadian-born Sydney Newman, was looking for a science-fiction serial to fill the Saturday afternoon gap between 'Grandstand' and 'Joke Box Jury'. Among the suggestions was 'Time Machine', in which time-travel could supply both historical and futuristic adven- tures. After a couple of months' discussion, this bare outline became known in the Beeb as 'Doctor Who', an unorthodox crotchety old man, dressed in Edwardian-style clothing. A mysterious figure, to be played initially by William Hartnell.

The initial plotline soon evolved. Along with his grand-daughter Susan, the Doctor has landed in his time machine, the TARDIS (Time and Relative Dimension in Space), in 1960s London, where the girl is attending school. Incredibly knowledgeable in some areas but naive and ignorant in others, she attracts the attention of teachers Ian Chesterton and Barbara Wright, understandably concerned about her background. They follow her home, which turns out to be a Metropolitan Police Box, and encounter the irascible Doctor. Fearing for Susan, they force their way inside the TARDIS, only to find it larger on the inside than out. The Doctor activates the TARDIS, whisking them all away to pre-historic times.

It now becomes apparent that the Doctor cannot control the machine and it can land anywhere, any time, making the storyline possibilities almost infinite. Drama, science-fiction, horror, comedy, adventure, historical - 'Doctor Who' could be any or all of these elements in its 25-minute serial format. Many episodes concluded with a cliff-hanger - by which point young viewers were to be found hiding behind the sofa, too afraid to look - which climaxed in a reprise of that terrifying, unearthly theme tune.

Producer Verity Lambert decided that the theme needed to be as innovative as the series concept. She'd seen a documentary about the avant-garde French electronic musicians Les Structures Sonores, and the music they created using glass rods mounted in steel. The corporation's own Radiophonic Workshop was consulted and pointed Lam- bert in the direction of Australian composer Ron Grainer, who had written memorable themes like 'Maigret' and 'Steptoe And Son' (and was later responsible for classics like 'Man In A Suitcase'and 'The Prisoner').

Grainer provided a score for 'Doctor Who', and the Workshop's Delia Derbyshire and Dick Mills began converting it into sound, using a white-noise generator, sine and square-wave generators and a beat frequency generator.

A single of the eerie, almost unearthly 'Doctor Who' theme, credited to the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, was issued in February 1964, followed by a more conventional but less gripping rival from Eric Winstone's orchestra later in the year.

In December 1963, the series' first race of aliens became the Doctor's deadliest enemies - the Daleks! Created by ex-Tony Hancock writer Terry Nation, the Daleks were a race who had been horribly mutated by radiation, and now lived inside motorised metal casings.

A year later, the Doctor witnessed the Daleks invade Earth, just as, in real life, a semi-professional group from Glasgow called the Go Gos released a seasonal novelty number, "I'm Gonna Spend My Christmas With A Dalek". The group's 17-year-old vocalist, Sue Smith, delivered the song in a child-like voice, while the single came in a picture sleeve showing bewildered Earthlings gawping at a Dalek.

A couple of months later, a group calling themselves just that, the Earthlings, issued an instrumental single, 'March Of The Robots'. But it was the B-side, 'Landing Of The Daleks' (reminiscent of the Tornados' "Telstar'), that caused controversy, when radio stations refused to play it because it featured an S.O.S. distress call in morse code. There was concern that if 'Landing Of The Daleks' was broadcast on the radio, it would confuse shipping and the emergency services. The record was re-pressed without the message, but the Earthlings' chance of glory had gone.

The Daleks found themselves in the cinema in June 1965, with the premiere of 'Doctor Who And The Daleks'. With the TV cast busy on the series, Peter Cushing starred as the movie Doctor - as a human scientist who had invented a time machine, rather than Hartnell's visitor from space.

Although Barry 'Thunderbirds' Gray provided some electronic sound effects, Malcolm Lockyer scored the film and issued a tie-in single. 'The Eccentric Dr. Who' was the movie theme, a fast-moving electric guitar piece with brass backing, while the B-side was the equally speedy 'Daleks And Thals'.

With Dalekmania sweeping the country, Roberta Tovey cashed in on her film role as the Doctor's grand-daughter, by recording "Who's Who" (co-written by Malcolm Lockyer), another novelty song with suitably suspect lyrics. Meanwhile, Jack Dorsey's Orchestra seriously attempted to invent a new craze with 'Dance Of The Daleks' - an uptempo big band instrumental complete with a sax solo - although this record had no connection with the film.

CHASE

By this time, the children's weekly comic 'TV Century 21' had gained the rights to publish a Daleks comic strip. This spawned an EP, "The Daleks", on Gerry Anderson's Century 21 label, which featured dialogue from the 1965 Dalek story 'The Chase', and narration from actor David Graham, who played one of the TV Daleks. There are three editions of this record: one featuring Eric Winstone's version of the theme, another the music of Barry Gray, while the third, produced specifically for Australia, boasted the original Radiophonic Workshop theme.

Box office returns for the movie exceeded all expectations, prompting a sequel, 'Daleks Invasion Earth 2150 AD', in which Peter Cushing and Roberta Tovey reprised their roles. But despite an increased budget, this second film failed to do the expected business, and the plan of making a film every year was, to quote the Daleks, "exterminated". Also cancelled was the proposed soundtrack album of Bill McGuffie's score, and it was six months before his tie-in single, "Fugue For Thought (Dalek: Invasion Earth)", appeared.

Back on TV, the Doctor's companions had come and gone, and having filmed the final part of the story 'The Tenth Planet', and prompted by illness and disagreements about the direction his role, William Hartnell also quit the series. This move inspired producer Innes Lloyd to invent the concept of 'regeneration', in which the Doctor's alien metabolism overhauled itself in the event of old age or severe injury, resulting in a completely new appearance and personality. It was a tremendous gamble, but through clever scripting the public accepted it, and Patrick Troughton became the new Doctor. Troughton insisted that he could not play the part like Hartnell, and so together with Lloyd he constructed a new characterisation of the Doctor as a whimsical cosmic hobo decked out in a black frock coat, baggy checked trousers and a spotted bow tie.

Several weeks later, a new companion arrived, in the form of Jamie MeCrimmon (alias Frazer Hines). Like many actors, Hines tried his hand as a recording artist, cutting a single, "Who's Dr. Who?", with producer Tommy Scott. This started out with some heavy guitar riffs before descending into another kiddies' pop tune; a group of young children even joined Frazer for the chorus. Hines' follow-up, 'Jamie's Away In His Time Machine', wasn't released, on the advice of his manager, who had been unhappy with the first record and reminded Hines that he was a serious actor.

Reluctant to be typecast, Troughton relinquished his role in 1969 in the story 'The War Games', where he met other members of his own race, the Time Lords. After a trial, where he was found guilty of interfering in the affairs of other worlds, he was exiled to Earth.

In an effort to save 'Doctor Who' from cancellation, producer Peter Bryant and script editor Derrick Sherwin used Troughton's departure to revamp the series, which was now set on Earth with the Doctor acting as a scientific adviser to UNIT (United Nations Intelligence Taskforce) - a military force assembled to combat threats to mankind, under the command of Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart.

The rethink worked and so began one of the series' most successful eras. The third Doctor arrived in the form of comedy-actor Jon Pertwee, although in contrast to his previous roles he played the Doctor completely straight, as a man of knowledge and authority, dressed in flamboyant velvet smoking jackets, silk shirts and Victorian capes.

There were other changes too. The series was now in bright, vivid colour, if you could pick it up, and the theme tune underwent minor variations courtesy of the Radiophonic Workshop's Delia Derbyshire, though it wasn't released on record at the time.

DISASTER

1972 did see a resurgence of vinyl interest in the series, though. Decca reissued the original version of theme tune, and Jon Pertwee himself released a single, "Who Is The Doctor?", reciting lyrics like a prophet of disaster against a doomy interpretation of the theme. This superb 45 was released on Deep Purple's own Purple label, and has since become one of the most popular Doctor Who records.

Also around in 1972 was a rare promo flexi called 'Sounds From ... EMS', to publicise Electronic Music Studios, a company formed by ex-BBC Radiophonic Workshop personnel Brian Hodgson and Delia Derbyshire. This contained a couple of incidental tracks, 'Axos Attack' and 'Doctor Who'. EMS also released an LP featuring these tracks, retitled "The Axons Approach" and "Dover Castle". These were composed by Australian Dudley Simpson who had worked intermittently on the series since 1964, and who went on to become the series' most prolific composer of 'Doctor Who' incidental music. Using a Delaware synthesizer, PaddyKingsland, of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, overhauled the theme tune for the show's tenth season. But at the eleventh hour, this twangy, pacier version was abandoned in favour of the existing arrangement. The revamp, known as 'The Delaware Version', wasn't issued until 1993, when it appeared on the CD, "Doctor Who: 30 Years Of The BBC Radiophonic Workshop", although it did mysteriously end up on a few episodes which had been edited with less gore and violence for Australia, where they resurfaced recently.

In 1973, BBC Records released Delia Derbyshire's 1970 version of the theme for the first time. Meanwhile, Dudley Simpson issued the TV theme to 'Moonbase 3', the B-side to which featured "The World Of Doctor Who", which offered sound effects from 'Planet Of The Daleks', incidental segments from 'The Mind Of Evil', plus a piece composed for the Doctor's arch-enemy, the evil Time Lord known as the Master.

Another composer, Australian jazz musician Don Harper, who had written the music for the 1968 Troughton/Cybermen adventure "The Invasion", brought out his own version o the theme tune under the name Don Harper's Homo Electronicus.

Tom Baker was virtually unknown when he assumed the role of the fourth Doctor - now a tall, curly-mopped, Bohemian-like individual with an infectious grin, a long coat, an even longer scarf, floppy felt hat and a taste for jelly babies.

In 1976, Baker and Sarah-Jane Smith actress, Elisabeth Sladen, issued the first story record, 'Doctor Who And The Pescatons', which presented an original scenario written (with Baker's assistance) by Victor Pemberton, who had already penned the 60s Troughton TV adventure, 'Fury From The Deep'.

Meanwhile that same year, the BBC theme was reissued as a single, as it was again two years later, this time in a limited picture sleeve. Also in 1978, the Art Attacks saw the series as fair game for punk with their "I A Dalek" single, while around the same time Dick Mills suggested that the BBC dust off its Radiophonic Workshop tapes for the album, "Doctor Who: Sound Effects No. 19". A note for TARDIS-spotters: the notes credit some tracks to the working titles of the stories, rather than the ones which appeared on screen.

It was now 15 years since the first 'Doctor Who' music had been created, but not one of the many releases since then had actually made the charts. This finally changed in November 1978, when session band Mankind issued "Dr Who", giving the TV theme a disco beat and some lyrics - plus an array of coloured vinyl variations. It peaked at No. 25 (even appearing as sheet music), and won the group a classic 'Top Of The Pops' performance, with the group's vocalist masquerading as the Doctor in floppy hat and long scarf.

The scale of 'Who' activity was about to explode, as Baker's incarnation of the Doctor became a cult success in the States. With transatlantic interest at stake, a vast merchandising industry built up around the series, which continues to this day.

Coincidentally or not, the series itself also underwent a face-lift, under producer John Nathan-Turner: production values were raised, and the humour content (which had seen the introduction of the robot dog K9) was reduced. Peter Howell of the Radiophonic Workshop did a marvellous job updating the theme, spawning yet another single. The Human League slipped 'Tom Baker', an instrumental tribute to their hero, onto the flip of "Boys And Girls", while a band called Blood Donor issued "Doctor . . . ?" in a style which pre-dated the Pet Shop Boys.

1981 also saw Tom Baker narrate the 'Who' talking book, 'State Of Decay', but his time as the Doctor was drawing to a close. After seven years in the role, Baker took the venerable Time Lord to his death, when he plunged from the Pharos Project transmitter in his final escapade, 'Logopolis'. He was replaced by Peter Davison, with a younger, more vulnerable and less eccentric persona, whose wardrobe was based on Victorian cricketing attire, including a cream frockcoat with a stick of celery on his lapel!

At Christmas 1981, shortly before Davison took over the role, the BBC screened the only televised 'Doctor Who'spin-off, 'K9 And Com- pany'. Former companion Sarah Jane Smith, teamed up with K9 Mark III, and their seasonal adventure served as a 50-minute pilot for a proposed, but never filmed, series. Its theme was an electronic piece on which John Leeson provided his usual K9 voice, and which was written by dance supremo Ian Levine with Fiachra Trench of Boomtown Rats fame. Sadly, Levine's original electronic demo was used as the basis for the tie-in single, rather than the orchestral arrangement he'd envisaged.

1982 also saw the release of a long-overdue soundtrack album, 'Doctor Who: The Music', made up of Radiophonic Workshop tracks - mostly from Tom Baker's last and Davison's first couple of seasons, and presented with impressive artwork depicting all the Doctors up to that point.

Jon Pertwee's legendary 1972 track was lifted as a single from the album, backed by MalcoIm Clarke's "The Sea Devils". But this proved no more successful than the novelty release "Doctor Who Is Gonna Fix It", by the Australian band Bullamakanka, or Mankind's updated disco remix, "Dr Who: The Sequel".

Nostalgia was in the air when the show's 20th anniversary was marked by a story called 'The Five Doctors', set on the Doctor's home world of Gallifrey, in which he was joined by his previous selves. Unfortunately, William Hartnell had died in 1975, so the part of the first Doctor was taken by Richard Hurndall. Tom Baker originally agreed to return as the fourth Doctor, but later changed his mind - though he did appear briefly in two excerpts from his unscreened and unfinished story, 'Shada'.

INFECTED

Peter Davison had never intended to play the part for more than three years, and in his last story, 'The Caves Of Androzani', he and assistant Peri (played by Nicola Bryant) became infected with a deadly disease. Dosed with the antidote, she quickly recovered, only to find the Doctor slumped on the floor of the TARDIS. "Are you going to die?", she asks. "I don't know, I might regenerate", he replies.

Colin Baker was chosen as the sixth Doctor, noted for his mismatched trousers and waistcoat, and loud polka-dot cravat, which hinted a return to the self-opinionated and alien personality. To coincide with the new series, "Doctor Who: The Music II', materialized in early 1986, with another selection of Radiophonic Workshop tracks from recent Davison stories. And, of course, Colin Baker's face now graced the sleeve of the theme single.

Viewing figures were dropping, however, as the series competed with American action show 'The A-Team', and after complaints that it was featuring excessive horror, the BBC decided to put 'Doctor Who' on hold.

Fans lobbied for the show's return, and Ian Levine produced a protest single, "Doctor In Distress", on which Colin Baker and Nicola Bryant appeared alongside actors and pop personalities like Justin Hayward of the Moody Blues, Hazel Dean, and Mike Nolan of Bucks Fizz, with the proceeds going to Cancer Research.

No longer on TV, 'Doctor Who' switched formats later in 1985, when the story 'Slipback' was serialised in ten-minute segments on Radio Four, with Colin Baker and Nicola Bryant recreating their roles. 'Slipback' was later issued on double-cassette pack along with "Doctor Who: Genesis Of The Daleks", in November 1988.

The radio experiment was repeated eight years later, when Jon Pertwee returned to the 'Doctor' role with Sarah Jane Smith and the Brigadier in 'The Paradise Of Death'. It was broadcast on Radio 5 in five 30-minute episodes, in summer 1993. This time, the story cassette quickly took its place in the BBC Audio Collection before transmission had ended - complete with scenes chopped from the radio version.

The TV series returned to our screens in September 1986, but the BBC's budgetary commitment was less than total. Episodes were stripped back from 45 to 25 minutes, and only 14 were scheduled per year - which effectively crushed the series' prospects in the States. Dominic Glynn reworked the theme one more time, although a tie-in single was scheduled to coincide with the new season, it was delayed, and it was December before the cassette and 12" arrived - the latter packaged in a fetching holographic picture sleeve that reflected images of some of the Doctor's best-known foes. Having been given up for lost, the 7" - in a plait, white sleeve - appeared almost a year later.

UNPLEASANT

In the new season the Doctor found himself back on trial before the Time Lords, but in reality, the series itself was on trial with Michael Grade, BBC1's controller. The verdict? 'Doctor Who' - not guilty. Colin Baker - guilty! Against his wishes, the series' producer was given the unpleasant task of informing the actor that he was dismissed.

Royal Shakespearian actor and all-round entertainer Sylvester McCoy, became the seventh Doctor, possessing a quirky sense of humour, yet later veering towards the dark and mysterious past of the character. He wore a short jacket, check trousers and a pullover covered in question marks, set off with a fedora hat and an umbrella. To match the change, the show's theme was given yet another new interpretation, this time by Keff McCulloch, although this was never issued as a single.

The Beeb was surprised when publicity came for the series from an unlikely quarter in June 1988, when a song called "Doctorin' The Tardis" reached No. 1. The culprits were Jimmy Cauty and Bill Drummond, alias KLF or JAMMS, masquerading this time under the name of the Timelords. They created a house tune by amalgamating the 'Doctor Who' theme with sections of Gary Glitter's 'Rock And Roll', the Sweet's "Blockbuster", plus samples of Dalek voices.

Though they didn't get prior permissionfrom BBC Enterprises, the corporation turneda blind eye, no doubt realising just how muchfree publicity the record was generating for the series - especially with the video, showed the Timelords' American police car running down square-looking Daleks, getting plenty of TV exposure on 'Top Of The Pops' and The Chart Show'. The following month Gary Glit- ter himself teamed up with Cauty and Drummond for a couple of remixes, resulting in "Gary In The Tardis".

The next Doctor release was the more sedate 'The Doctor Who 25th Anniversary Album', which included the Derbyshire, Howell, Glynn and McCulloch themes, a piece used for a TV trailer that was never broadcast, and selections from McCulloch's work on three of the McCoy stories. The cover featured the diamond 'Doctor Who' logo on a black background, with everything covered in a coloured sparkle effect, and completists had no fewer than four different colours to collect.

A few months later, four specially recorded versions of the theme by Glynn, McCulloch and long-time 'Doctor Who' enthusiast Mark Ayres (two versions) made up the single "Doctor Who: Variations On A Theme". Initially available only on 12", it subsequently appeared as the world's first-ever square CD. Soundtrack specialists Silva Screen provided a more orthodox round edition the following year.

The last episode of the story 'Survival' was broadcast in December 1989 - and although there was no announcement, the series failed to reappear the following year. But the show was still providing inspiration for musicians. Free with issue 167 of 'Doctor Who Magazine' came a one-sided flexi disc, featuring some incidental music and a tune that immortalized the ruthless Dalek-Killer, Abslom Daak, credited to the Slaves of Kane. The tune itself was a house/synthesizer instrumental that borrowed the guitar riff from the Stranglers' 1977 hit 'Peaches', with added dialogue: "I am Abslom Daak - Dalek Killer", and the reply: "We are the Daleks. We will destroy you".

SOUNDTRACK

With the series off,the air, the BBC allowed Silva Screen to take control of 'Doctor Who' recordings. Dominic Glynn's 'Blacklight II: The Remixes' (expanding on his earlier fan-produced cassette), was planned as the initial album, but it failed to appear, and instead composer Mark Ayres' own soundtrack for the McCoy classic 'The Curse Of Fenric' set things rolling in July 1991, followed by Ayres' "Doctor Who: The Greatest Show In The Galaxy" arriving in April 1992. Both the earlier "Doctor Who: The Music" albums were also transferred to CD and cassette, with extra tracks and new artwork.

Meanwhile, Heathcliff Blair single-handedly re-recorded a set of Dudley Simpson's incidental pieces using synthesizers, where Simpson had used up to eight musicians. The results of these experiments were released on "Doctor Who: Pyramids Of Mars" in June 1993.

Meanwhile, enthusiasts were not forgotten as Silva Screen unveiled their impressive compilation, "The Worlds Of Doctor Who". This offered three versions of the theme and a good cross-section of incidental music going back to the early 70s, some of it previously unreleased. Plans were also afoot around July 1994 for the company to transfer the "Space Adventures" cassette onto CD, with additional 'stock' tracks. It didn't happen, but Silva Screen remain committed long-term to 'Doctor Who' and the music it inspires.

Sadly, the BBC have not always been so faithful to its memory, and have wiped a large amount of black-and-white (and some colour) 'Doctor Who' master tapes in the late 60s/ early 70s, figuring that they would never be transmitted again, and were therefore of no commercial value. This policy continued until 1978, when the Corporation decided to make a 'Lively Arts' documentary called 'Whose Doctor Who', and suddenly discovered just how few episodes they had preserved. The BBC hierarchy immediately set about recovering lost episodes. Over the years, foreign TV stations and private collectors have filled in many of the other gaps, but there are many Troughton episodes that no longer exist.

However, the BBC did locate audio versions of some 'missing' Troughton stories, which had been lovingly recorded by fans in the 60s. These were edited down for release on cassette, and "Doctor Who: The Evil Of The Daleks", with extra narration by Tom Baker, went on sale in July 1992. But "Doctor Who: The Tomb Of The Cybermen", narrated by Jon Pertwee, was delayed until 1993 when its four episodes were suddenly returned to the TV archives. Their release on home-video effectively squashed the market for the cassettes.

AIMLESS

By November 1993, the Doctor(s) were back on TV in a two-part 'Doctor Who/Children In Need' special, 'Dimensions In Time'. The surviving Doctors, Jon Pertwee, the Bakers Tom and Colin, Peter Davison and Sylvester McCoy (Patrick Troughton had died in 1987), all donned their outfits again for an aimless run-around, shot partly on the 'EastEnders' Albert Square backlot at BBC Elstree. The special's theme was issued on the "Cybertech" CD the following year, credited to Adrian Pack and Michael Fillis.

The BBC decided to launch a series of 'Doctor Who' talking books, based on the Target Books novelisations of the original series that had been issued down the years. And who better to read them than the actors who played the Doctor? Pertwee, Davison and Colin Baker recorded two examples each over April/May 1995, and the first two tapes were rush-released on the 5th June. There were others in July and August, but though it was announced at the same time, Peter Davison's reading of 'Kinda' never appeared, and nor did Colin Baker's 'Vengeance On Varos'.

Instead, the radio Doctor, alias Jon Pertwee, returned to Radio 2 during January/ February 1996 in the 6-part story, 'The Ghosts Of N-Space', once again accompanied by a cassette release.

But fans of the Doctor were by then distracted by his imminent return to the screen. Since the series' cancellation, there had been constant rumours about a return - perhaps as a feature film. Eventually, new producer Philip Segal managed to get Fox and Universal Television behind the project, arranging a co-production with the BBC for a TV movie, to act as a pilot for a proposed new series. Segal argued with American TV executives to save the familiar 'Doctor Who' theme for his TV movie, but it was eventually subjected to an unsatisfactory orchestral arrangement, while much of the incidental music was remi- niscent of that heard in the 'Batman' films.

The show - simply titled 'Doctor Who', and starring Paul McGann with a cameo by McCoy - was aired in Britain last May. Will Paul McGann be the final Doctor, or will the BBC satisfy audience demand and send the TARDIS off into another set of perilous exploits across space and time? Whatever the answer, there's no doubting the incredible cult popularity which the series still enjoys, as demonstrated by the continued success of 'Doctor Who Magazine', and the constant stream of memorabilia and publications aimed at hardcore fans. Plus the fact that the series was honoured with an Auntie award as the BBC's all-time best popular drama series!
