Launching this autumn on BBC AMERICA, the highly-anticipated new season of Doctor Who
, starring Jodie Whittaker as the Thirteenth Doctor, will be scored by burgeoning composer Segun Akinola.
The Royal Birmingham Conservatoire alumni will provide an exciting and emotional score, ushering in a new era for the show, including a fresh take on the legendary theme tune.
As part of the BAFTA Breakthrough Brit program in 2017, Segun has already been recognized as one of the rising stars among British composers.
Segun’s modern, rich and varied work on programs such as Black and British: A Forgotten History
attracted the attention of Doctor Who
showrunner Chris Chibnall, who said: “
Welcome to the Doctor Who
family, Segun Akinola! We’re over the moon Segun's agreed to join us, to provide the score for the next phase of the Doctor Who
adventure. From our very first conversations, it was obvious Segun was a passionate, collaborative and delightful human being as well as a fantastic and bold composer. We’re looking forward to introducing the world to his exciting and emotional soundtracks for the Thirteenth Doctor.”
