"Westminster Bridge" was a leitmotif written by Murray Gold and played by the BBC National Orchestra of Wales. It was used as incidental music in the soundtracks of many episodes of the first and second series of Doctor Who. The piece is mostly attributed to the television story Rose, and has the distinction of being the first incidental piece to feature in the revived series, in the opening scene of the aforementioned episode.

It was released in the official soundtrack for the first and second series of Doctor Who on 4 December 2006.

The Doctor Who: A Celebration concert, on 19 November 2006, featured the only live performance of this piece to date, conducted by Ben Foster.

Gold revealed in issue 363 of Doctor Who Magazine that "Westminister Bridge" was inspired by the Pixies' cover of The Surftones' song, "Cecilia Ann".
