A new version of the theme now available.

Ultra Records has released Austrian dance trio Frontload’s newest track, "Dr. Who". Their latest beat combines the group’s signature electronic sound while modernizing the Doctor Who theme. The owners to the publishing rights of the theme gave their stamp of approval by clearing part of the track. 'Dr. Who' is a follow up to the group’s previous popular track titled Rebels (Wake Up).
