Doctor Who: Music from Series 1 & 2 [Original Television Soundtrack]

by Murray Gold

CD

Overview

With the rebirth (reincarnation, rather) of the outrageously popular sci-fi series Doctor Who on the BBC, there comes (of course) the soundtrack. This time out, Murray Gold mans the TARDIS' stereo controls and, with the help of accomplished orchestrator Ben Foster, offers up some of the best music the series has ever had. From the tasteful reworking of Ron Grainer's ubiquitous theme music to the Walker Brothers-channeling tracks by the Divine Comedy's Neil Hannon, this collection of music absolutely nails the vibe and style that make Doctor Who such an enduringly popular series. There are times when Foster seems to borrow a bit heavily from the doom-and-gloom choruses of the latter three Star Wars prequels (see "The Daleks" for some serious Anakin angst drama), but this hits the mark nonetheless.

i love this soundtrack and originally purchased it in september of 2008 and i still have the same cd! murray does such an amazing work on the music that the second you turn on your cd or iPod or whatever you listen to it's as if your back on the sofa (or sometimes behind the sofa with such monsters as daleks, cyberman and weeping angels) watching an episode of doctor who! The second that it's turned on you can see the scenes in your head and feel the emotions as if you had just watched the episode itself on the tele. A MUST BUY FOR ANY DOCTOR WHO FAN! and my favorite out of all the doctor who soundtracks so far.
