      6 of us went on Saturday, we were up in the circle so very high up, mega hot, and a loooong way from the stage – it didnt matter in the end as it was wonderful! I treasure every moment- hope my kids do too- one of them reduced to tears by the music; all in all it was Fantastic!
      I would do it all again in an instant!

      It was a brilliant nod to previous Doctors,Companions,Composers,cheered and appreciated by the audience, guest appearances from Peter Davison & Carole Ann Ford. Hosted by the 11th Doctor, Clara, Silurian & Sontaran and featured Daleks, Cybermen, Judoon, Vampires from Venice, The Silence and an Ice Warrior- naming but a few 🙂

      I think its just called ‘centre’ on the map. You can buy a place there on the day for £5. we’ve made a Proms plan for the second tier!

    booboo, I’m 11 and I’m probably going to the prom, but am I allowed to go on my own? My parents don’t like Doctor Who so they won’t sit through 2 hours of Who music!But they were really nice saying that they would get me a ticket if I’m allowed to go on my own.

      You shouldn’t let an 11 year old out on their own anyway

      It should be on TV, they did before when they had that video segment when the 10th Doctor talks to the audience from within the Tardis, and a Graske was featured too.

      Yeah, and they did the same with the 11th Doctor version… I’ll try to watch it on TV. Thanks, Doctor Who One

      If they do it as they have in the past you’ll be able to listen to it live on the radio and watch it on TV a few weeks/months later.
