"Chromophone Band" was the title given to a piece of music written on a human colony conquered by the Macra. It was a cheery tune, played when the Second Doctor, Jamie McCrimmon, Ben Jackson and Polly Wright arrived. It was played again after the Macra were defeated. (TV: The Macra Terror)

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

In reality, it is Delia Derbyshire, the woman behind the original recording and arrangement of the Doctor Who theme, who composed "Chromophone Band", for the BBC's stock music library.
