Doctor Who Named Sci-Fi's Best Theme Tune

By Mark
In a recent poll conducted by Total Sci-Fi Online, the Doctor Who theme tune was named the best science fiction television theme tune of all time. The original Doctor Who theme tune was arranged by Delia Derbyshire and composed by Ron Grainer in 1963. It was recorded by the BBC Radiophonic Workshop who also provided many sound effects for the show and examples include the noise of the Tardis and the noise of the Sonic Screwdriver. The theme tune has been reworked many times over the past forty six years and the most recent re-arrangement was made by Murray Gold for the newly revived series of Doctor Who. Red Dwarf's theme tune came in second place and the official theme tune for The X-Files came third in the poll.
