Yes, finally here -- YAY!

Ha ha, gotcha! Absolutely tops (for me) is I Am The Doctor -- every variation i've heard is glorious, including the ones in the Christmas Special (i'll also get it when it comes out). Which is why i absolutely do NOT mind its recurrence (in bits and parts) in various songs throughout the soundtrack :) Especially because it so perfectly fits as Eleven's action theme (LOVE how it came on right after the Doctor messaged GERONIMO to River as he flew the Pandorica to the exploding TARDIS) -- thank you Murray Gold!

Other faves: The Sad Man With a Box and The Life and Death of Amy Pond (this was Amy's Theme in the 2010 Doctor Who proms) -- both have such STUNNING crescendos; A Useful Striker (which was when Eleven played football), Onwards!, The Sun's Gone Wibbly are grand, and You and Me, Amy has such sad, gut-wrenching notes despite being a quieter song -- what a punch! To me, Murray's music makes Doctor Who even more special -- brilliant, brilliant stuff. Now if only S6 would start already...

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
