Orchestras were often featured in the incidental music of television shows and movies. A television show being filmed in the Broadcasting House featured a ten-piece orchestra performing the incidental music for the show. (PROSE: Losing the Audience) A film viewed by Richard and Debbie also featured an orchestra in its incidental music. (PROSE: The Very Last Picture Show)
Isaac composed music for an orchestra. (PROSE: An Overture Too Early) One piece he composed amplified the effects of an anti-electron field operated by Hu. Because of this, it had the power to raze whole worlds. Isaac became trapped in a mirror by this effect, and was saved by his orchestra playing the song while Hu ran his generators. (PROSE: Resonance)
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
Some live events also centred on orchestral performances of Doctor Who music. Doctor Who: A Celebration began this tradition in 2006, followed by Doctor Who at the Proms in 2008, 2010 and 2013. The Doctor Who Symphonic Spectacular, in Melbourne and Sydney, followed a similar premise.
