Super incredible tunes by Murray! Some unused in the eps!

Sadly, DotD and TotD included old music in place of the newer pieces Murray had written for the episodes. On this soundtrack, the unheard music is there and it's beautiful!!

Stand outs include "Song for Four" (originally intended to be played during the DotD Tom Baker scene but instead replaced by "Wedding of River Song" - later used in Deep Breath during the Eleven/Clara phone call!)

Never Tell Me The Rules (Eleven's regeneration music from the belltower scene... including a beautiful 50-second lead-up that was NOT in the TV version!)

It's Him (song playing when UNIT is bringing the TARDIS in with Eleven hanging from it. Again, the beginning part of this song NEVER aired. And it's awesome.)

The Tennant songs feature his Series 1-3 theme in little bits that were not on the show for some weird reason, so if you enjoyed that haunting cue you'll appreciate its return.

This is How it Ends features some awesome variations on Clara's theme and is from the part where the Doctor leaves to face his death and Clara pleads with the Time Lords to help him...

There are many more great songs, but these are just some highlights.

Stunning, as always

This soundtrack hasn't been released yet, but I can already tell from the previews that... "It's gonna be a whopper!!" Murray Gold's music is one of my favorite things about the show. It's not praised enough. Last year, his music for The Day of the Doctor managed to look to the future while celebrating the past.

The best example of this is the track "Song For Four," which starts out with a quiet melody that sounds a lot like the synth incidental music of Classic Who. It's my most anticipated of the whole soundtrack, but I'm eager to listen to all of the songs. Murray Gold's music hasn't disappointed me yet, and I doubt it ever will.

Where's the Theme Songs?

I purchased the [physical] album, and (after listening to "Day of the Doctor") I discovered that not only were some tracks "altered" but, also, the "Main/End Titles" were MISSING, from the Album!

Shame, on you, for NOT including "the MOST IMPORTANT PIECE", of DOCTOR WHO music, EVER… The Theme Songs!

"0 Stars!"

About Murray Gold

Described as the U.K.'s answer to Bear McCreary, Murray Gold is one of the most successful TV composers of the last decade. Born in Portsmouth in 1969, Gold started playing the piano at the age of six, and in his teens he arranged for high-school brass ensembles. After studying History at Cambridge University, he worked on a theater production at the Edinburgh Festival and became a scriptwriter for Channel 5 before his first score of a BBC-TV adaptation of Vanity Fair launched his composing career. A regular stalwart of writer Russell T. Davies, Gold provided the soundtracks for Queer as Folk and Casanova, and in 2005 he became the musical director of the revamped Doctor Who, creating a new arrangement for its iconic theme tune. Since then, five compilation albums featuring the music for the sci-fi series have been released. Featuring vocal contributions from soprano Melanie Pappenheim and the Divine Comedy's Neil Hannon, the collections have become the biggest-selling TV soundtracks in the U.K. In 2010 he performed at The Proms and arranged and orchestrated two live Doctor Who concerts at Cardiff's Millennium Centre and London's Royal Albert Hall. Gold has also scored several movies, including Death at a Funeral and Alien Autopsy, and wrote the soundtrack to Doctor Who spinoffs Torchwood and The Sarah Jane Adventures. ~ Jon O'Brien
