Doctor Who (Original Television Soundtrack)
Murray Gold & BBC National Orchestra of Wales

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.

Best Doctor Who Music Ever!
This soundtrack for the New Series of Doctor Who is a beautiful work by Murray Gold! It contains several different themes from the television series. It's a must-have for any Doctor Who fan out there! I think the best tracks on this album are: The Doctor's Theme, Song for Ten, The Face of Boe, Madame de pompadour, and Doomsday (but I really LOVE them all!)
Amazing soundtrack for an amazing show!
Often times, it's the music that can make or break a television series. It helps create the appropriate mood and can enhance the visual effects of the show. This soundtrack is a wonderful example of how the background music adds flavor and uniqueness to the Doctor Who series. It is melodic and beautifully orchestrated. Track 3 (The Doctor's Theme) is a perfect example of how the mystery and mystical nature of this recent incarnation of the Doctor is captured by the mysterous and almost hypnotic vocal work in this piece. Overall, great album.
Now we need the TV Show on iTunes!
I've been wanting this soundtrack forever and now I have it! I love all of it. The one thing I really want now is the Doctor Who and Torchwood TV show on itunes for boring plane trips. Just a lot of fun and with all the ups and downs in the music.
