Doctor Who star Peter Capaldi wants to get the middle eight back in the show’s theme tune.
A middle eight is a short section (typically of eight bars) in the middle of a conventionally structured song, generally of a different character from the other parts of the song.
The current shortened version of the Doctor Who theme does not include the middle eight, although an extended version of the current arrangement is included on the Season 8 soundtrack album.
To demonstrate why it needs to return, Capaldi sings the middle eight in this video.
He comments at the end of his performance: “Get the middle eight back!”
Season 10 will air on BBC One in spring 2017.
