a female vocalist, most notable for her vocal work on Doctor Who. She has garnered critical acclaim for her work on Doctor Who due to the ethereal vocals used in the Doctor's leitmotif - to which the producers described her as "President Flavia (from The Five Doctors) singing out of the time vortex". As a result, many of the show's fans refer to her as "Flavia". Her vocals on the track "Doomsday" (used in the denouement of the eponymous episode) caused an influx of emails to the BBC about her contribution to the soundtrack. She subsequently appeared on Murray's second soundtrack, composed for the third series of the show and would also return to contribute her vocals to the Christmas special, Voyage of the Damned. Her voice has become instantly recognisable to the show's dedicated fan base. As a contributer to show's soundtrack, Melanie has appeared at two special live concerts to celebrate the music by Murray Gold. The first was played at the Millennium Centre in Cardiff in 2006, and the second as part of the BBC Proms on 27 July 2008 at the Royal Albert Hall in London.
