Doctor Who Theme Tune Wins Award

The Doctor Who theme tune is one of the most recognisable pieces of music ever from a television programme, and a new poll has shown this on Total Sci-Fi Online. The poll was opened to determine the 'Best (Sci-Fi) Theme Tune of all Time,' and Doctor Who's opening music was up against the music from many famous programmes, some being Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Star Trek and The X Files. Here are the results:

1) Doctor Who
2) Red Dwarf
3) The X Files
4) Buffy the Vampire Slayer
5) Star Trek
6) Thunderbirds
7) The Twilight Zone
8) Battlestar Galactica
9) Quantum Leap
10) Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy

The theme tune to Doctor Who was originally composed by Ron Grainer and has been altered slightly many times during the show's history by others such as Murray Gold. Well done to all the composers for making such an iconic theme tune!

Thanks to DWMO for the information!
