I’m sharing this here, because it is the best thing ever.
Delia Derbyshire arranged the original theme music for Doctor Who, from Ron Grainer’s score. Being staff, she received no credit for her work. After talking her way into the Radiophonic Workshop, which didn’t hire women, she went on to become a pioneer of electronic music. She has said that the German bombardment of her hometown during her childhood inspired her interest in unusual sounds.
Look her up, she’s fascinating. And finally, in the fiftieth anniversary year of her most famous creation – arguably one of the best-known theme tunes of all time – she receives a tiny drop of acknowledgement: an appearance in a fictionalized scene during Mark Gatiss’ ‘An Adventure in Space and Time,’ and a credit for music arrangement on ‘The Day of the Doctor.’
