Orbital, Featuring Matt Smith, Play Dr. Who


Current Dr. Matt Smith & Orbital  cover the Dr. Who theme at Glastonbury 2010.

Clearly a crowd-pleaser, but it can’t top Derbyshire’s version, can it?

Shame Orbital didn’t do the theme for Series 5 but this will do just nicely.

  1. A rather weak drumbeat where a strong and *massive* bassline should be. I think that's the main reason why this won't appeal to much Who fans.

  2. I thought it was excellent. Remember, it's live. It's not a carefully constructed 30 seconds long TV show theme. It's 6 minutes long, and they manage to rock it *and* have everyone in the place dancing. Also, I have a funny feeling that the "weak drumbeat" might have had chest-pounding strength when heard live and in person. This is a YouTube video after all, and not a concert PA system. As a Doctor Who fan since the early '70s I have to say that I totally loved it.

  3. I do wonder what Matt Smith does in this. It's really difficult to tell if he's actually playing anything, but it would be super-cool if we actually had a synth-playing timelord!
    I must admit though, I'm not a big fan of Orbital's version – without it being in 6/8, it toally loses that 'feel'. But then again I'm just a massive fusspot 😛

  4. This little free software allows you include and pay
    attention to streams from the Shoutcast radio stations.
    This revert back again the lockscreen performance. Speaking
    tom variations are continuously kept updated.
