The BBC have now begun airing this new advert to promote the new 2018 season of their long-running sci-fi series Doctor Who, which this time stars actress Jodie Whittaker as the shows first ever female Doctor. Surprisingly for a Doctor Who TV advert, this one doesn’t use the traditional theme tune for its soundtrack.
Fans do however still have a while to wait, as episode 1 The Woman Who Fell to Earth isn’t due to broadcast on BBC1 until Sunday 7 October. New Time Lord Jodie will then be joined on-screen by such fellow cast members as Tosin Cole, Mandip Gill and Bradley Walsh.
Doctor Who Advert Song 2018
Song Title: Glorious.
Artists: Macklemore featuring Skylar Grey.
Download From: iTunes & Amazon.
Rather than simply playing the programmes theme music in the background of this promo video, the BBC instead chose to use a hip-hop track called ‘Glorious’. Featuring the lyrics “I feel glorious, glorious. Got a chance to start again”, this song was recorded by American rapper Macklemore and American singer Skylar Grey, and was released for download in June, 2017.
This ‘The Doctor’s Ready! Are You? – It’s About Time’ trailer was posted to the BBC’s YouTube channel on 7 September, 2018.
