“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.”

Doctor Who” is set to have a panel at Comic-Con next month in San Diego where it’s likely the first footage from the new season will be screened and potentially include some of Akinola’s work. The new “Doctor Who” returns to screens in the Fall.
