The Doctor Who Prom

An annual parents and children event at the Royal Albert Hall: the BBC Symphony offers music from the series (surprisingly good as movie music goes), light/fast/short classics (this year: "Mars" from The Planets, some John Adams (good on you), Ride of the Valkyries, O Fortuna from Carmina Burana.) and much facetiousness: Daleks, Cybermen, a fez on the statue of Sir Henry Wood....

Also... Matt Smith, Karen Gillen (as host), the guy who plays Rory, and a panto sketch about Daleks taking over the BBC Symphony, defeated by the Doctor.

If you're a fan, how can you resist? Available here for a bit longer
