An edited version of the concert, containing only some of the Murray Gold compositions, and none of the classical pieces, was televised on BBC Three on 6 September at 8:30pm and was repeated on 7 September at 2:45am. An extended version containing most of the music from the 2010 Doctor Who Prom, including some of the classical pieces, was broadcast on BBC Three on 10 September at 7:00pm. BBC America premiered it for the U.S. on 25 December as part of a "Doctor Who Christmas". A 1-hour edition of "Doctor Who at the Prom" was shown in Australia on ABC1.
An edited version is included as an extra on the DVD release for the Doctor Who Christmas special "A Christmas Carol".
Featuring live appearances by various foes of the Doctor including the Cybermen, the Judoon, the Vampire Girls ("The Vampires of Venice") and the Silurians. Towards the end, a clip from the penultimate episode of Series 5 ("The Pandorica Opens") was shown, with the Doctor cautioning the advancing aliens from atop the Pandorica. The aliens in the hall then departed just as the song was ending.
Following the interval and O Fortuna, there was a specially produced scene featuring an appearance by Matt Smith as the Doctor. The scene began with The Doctor appearing via a screen saying that the TARDIS malfunctioned and sent him to the Albert Hall in 2207. There he was forced to deal with an explosive alien device that could destroy a whole street. Following an accident, the Doctor inadvertently arrived at the concert (with the bomb). The Doctor then attempted to defuse the explosive, enlisting the assistance of a randomly chosen audience member (in the televised version, a young boy named Ellis).
