BBC National Orchestra of Wales & Murray Gold

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. ~ J. Scott McClintock, Rovi
A sci fi legend is reborn
Doctor Who like Star Wars and Star Trek have become cult classics. From their entertaining and sometimes ludicrous plot elements to the fundamentals of sci fi, classics such as Doctor Who have entertained us for decades. With the latest incarnation of Doctor Who, we say goodbye to the rather stereotypical and dated earlier versions and say hello to a bold and fresh version for the new millenium. With this new version comes an updated soundtrack, reatining the charm of series' past but briging a edgier and more refined sound. Okay, it is just sci fi themes... not for the ipod. But still a great sounding classic.
Doctor who rox!!!
This soundtrack is fantastic! It has the music from the tv show and all the songs sound great. I especially love the doctor and rose themes and the doomsday instrumental.
