Popular music in 'Doctor Who' #17

Episode: 'Attack of the Cybermen' (1985)
Artist: Colin Baker
Titles: Toccata and Fugue In D Minor
Notes:
* The Doctor plays the opening bars of the tune on the TARDIS, when the chameleon circuit works, and it takes on the appearance of a pipe organ
* The piece is not named in the story, but it's well known enough to be immediately recognised
* Johann Sebastian Bach composed the piece at an unknown date. It's been suggested that it could have been written any time between 1704 and 1750!

As seen in the show

Popular music in 'Doctor Who' #18

Episode: 'Revelation of the Daleks' (1985) (i)
Artist: The Jimi Hendrix Experience
Title: Fire
Notes:
* Played by the DJ at Tranquil Repose
* Originally found on the 1967 LP 'Are You Experienced'
* Due to copyright issues, the song was only included in the original television broadcast and not on the subsequent VHS and DVD releases. For the VHS edition, the Hendrix material was removed, leaving only the dialogue over a piece of music from the BBC library. A different piece of library music was used for the DVD release
