Vashta Nerada [Doctor Who Theme] is our reworking of Ron Grainer and Delia Derbyshire's classic Doctor Who theme, featuring the vocals of Harri Norris and recorded with producer George Shilling (Bernard Butler, Blur, Porcupine Tree, Stornoway) at his own Bank Cottage studio.
We've always been massive fans of the original piece of music and after debating 'what if Pink Floyd actually covered the Doctor Who Theme' (rather than just the One of These Days... references to it), combined with having watched the brilliant clip of Peter Howell recreating his version at the BBC, decided we'd do our own take on it. Vashta Nerada was the result and hopefully we've done Ron and Delia's original track justice (with plenty of Floyd and Doctor Who references thrown in for good measure).
The video below was filmed and produced by our good friend Rich Wakefield at FXMedia.

To coincide with the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who, we pressed a limited run of Vashta Nerada [Doctor Who Theme], on beautiful 10" vinyl (with additional posters signed by the band)
We wanted to put something special on the B-side, so included a new original Traffic Experiment track that has been written for our next album (but for now is only exclusively available with this vinyl release).
Only 500 copies of this Collector's Edition will ever be printed and there are still a few left.
