Peter Davison confirmed as host of UK Symphonic Spectacular Tour
In addition, given the very strong demand for tickets, a second matinee performance has been confirmed for the SSE Arena, Wembley, on Sunday 24 May.
The Doctor Who Symphonic Spectacular, which celebrates the world’s longest running science fiction TV series, showcases the evocative and thrilling music written by Murray Gold for the series since 2005 and features over 100 performers including the BBC National Orchestra of Wales and members of the BBC National Chorus of Wales, conducted by Ben Foster. The first ever UK tour will be staged in London, Cardiff, Birmingham, Leeds, Newcastle and Glasgow in May 2015.
Peter Davison, who portrayed the Fifth Doctor on the BBC One series between 1981 and 1984, acted as presenter for the Doctor Who Symphonic Spectacular in Australia and New Zealand at the beginning of 2014 and will reprise this role in 2015.
