Famous faces from Doctor Who have lined up to celebrate a special musical offering based on the hit TV show.

Some of the long-running show's stars - and its most famous monsters - were gathered together in a picture inspired by the classic cover of The Beatles Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.

The original, famously designed by pop-artist Sir Peter Blake, featured stars including Fred Astaire, Bob Dylan and footballer Albert Stubbins on the front alongside the Fab Four.

This version, commissioned to celebrate the Doctor Who Symphonic Spectacular tour, includes Daleks, Cybermen and Weeping Angels alongside a handful of timelords and their assistants including Clara Oswald and Rose Tyler.

Among the doctors pictured are Christopher Eccleston, David Tennant, Matt Smith and Peter Capaldi.

The tour, which includes musicians from th e BBC National Orchestra of Wales and BBC National Chorus of Wales, includes performances of the show's score with scenes from the series shown on the big screen and live-action monsters.

It visits London, Cardiff, Birmingham, Leeds, Newcastle and finishes in Glasgow.
