Actually, if I recall interviews with Delia Derbyshire correctly what sounds like a theremin is actually a sine wave generator…

Q: Did the original Doctor Who theme song use a theremin?

Sorry, also no. The Doctor Who theme was performed by Delia Derbyshire in 1963 using a combination of hand-tuned oscillators and tape loops that we cut and spliced together in a technique known as musique concrete.

Q: Did the original Star Trek theme use a theremin?

No. The original theme was sung by soprano Loulie Jean Norman and was not a theremin. Another variation was performed with a violin.

I have seen the Doctor Who theme performed with one later.
