The Most Melodic Doctor Who Soundtrack Yet

I initially had no interest in the Doctor Who Series 7 soundtrack. Murray Gold's music that season, in contrast to his scores for Series 4, didn't sound like Ben Foster working from Gold's notes, but, on the other hand, nothing particularly stood out for me as it had in the two previous seasons. I reconsidered upon hearing "Infinite Potential" on the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary album, and I'm glad I did.

This is probably the most melodious Doctor Who soundtrack I've listened to so far. In contrast to previous Doctor Who soundtracks, hardly anything on this one evokes specific images or scenes, but that's not a problem The overall sound is grand and evocative of big-screen movies, fully complementary of the feel show runner Steven Moffatt was going for in Series 7. Clara's theme, as well as "I Am the Doctor," recur throughout the portion of the album covering Series 7b, and the album as a whole is suitable for background noise. The album also stands well as an independent piece of art.

Even if you're not a Whovian, if you like good orchestral scores, this album is worth the purchase.

Outstanding music score for a great series

I’ve been watching Doctor Who since the early ‘70s. It just gets better and better in acting, plot, effects and music score.

Regeneration

In time of the doctor, the song "infinite potential" is the song he says his inspirational speech at the end and when he greets amy pond.

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
