Murray Gold has revealed that he has composed a special “birthday” song for the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary and will premiere at the Doctor Who Proms this weekend. Speaking to Mark Lawson on the BBC Radio 4 show Front Row, Gold described the track, Song For Fifty:
“We thought it would be appropriate to write something to commemorate the birthdays; essentially ‘Happy Birthday’ to a lovely television show. I think the last words are ‘Happy Birthday Doctor You’, which I’m sure the whole audience is gonna mishear and say, ‘You must never call him by that name’! I wrote this long song to speak for everybody in that room [Royal Albert Hall].”
