Doctor Who fans across the UK are currently attempting to honour the show’s fiftieth anniversary by getting a classic version of the show’s theme tune to the number one on the popular music charts. Campaigns to get songs to number one on a certain day have been very common ever since 2009, when a surge of resentment towards packaged pop show The X-Factor resulted in rock band Rage Against The Machine getting a surprise Christmas hit.
The motivation for honouring Doctor Who’s musical legacy may not be completely motivated by love for the long running sci-fi series, as the campaign is also one in the eye for teen pop band One Direction. The bland and interchangeable boy band recently caused a stir amongst Doctor Who fans by declaring that the date of the 23rd of November should be called 1D Day in order to coincide with the launch of their album Midnight Memories on the 25th of November.
Those interested in getting the Doctor Who theme tune to Number One for the weekend of the 23rd of November should plan their purchases for the week starting the 18th of November, and those using iTunes are encouraged to select the BBC Radiophonic Workshop track from the Electrospective album. Further information can be found on Facebook, and the twitter hashtag for all thing Doctor Who anniversary is #SaveTheDay.
