Doctor Who makes a special appearance at the Proms

27 JULY 2008
Music-loving sci-fi fans had a treat on Sunday when Daleks and Cybermen took over the BBC Proms.

In a special Doctor Who-themed concert, former assistant Freema Agyeman presented a selection of classical favourites all featuring the theme of space and time. Music from the BBC's hit series including the legendary signature tune - was also performed at the Royal Albert Hall concert.

While the Doctor actor David Tennant could not be there in person, he did make an appearance in a specially filmed scene shown during the two-hour event's interval. The action was written by Russell T Davies, the man behind the return of the show.

The family friendly concert is the first appearance of Doctor Who in the Proms' 118-year history.
