Have I missed something or is the new version of the main theme not on this release? Given how well received it was (from what I recall) I'm surprised that it's not been included. Perhaps the supposed Christmas special release will contain it?!

I'm guessing / hoping that it will be on another CD - either one for the Christmas special(s) or the 50th Anniversary special. It ought to be out there somewhere.

Indeed they are and mine arrived today. Great sounding CD so far and worth paying a bit extra to get the jewel case version from Silva. Looks a lot better on the shelf next to the others than a cardboard pack would.

Great music it is. I still stand by what I've said for some time though, that the robust themes of Series 1-5 have drifted away. Shame. Great as this is the first time I got goosebumps listening to the new release was when that lovely burst of the Gallifrey theme rang out at the start of The Name of the Doctor. The other main stand-out, rather predictably what with all the choral work, was the Rings of Akhaten score. An episode I hated on broadcast!

I'm listening to this for the first time now. While the absence of the Doctor Who theme is really regrettable, I do find this set a much more entertaining listen than the Series 6 set. I agree that the Akhaten cues are highlights of this album. So far. smile

Yeah I really disliked the Akhaten music in the episode. But for some reason sounds grand on the CD. I much prefer the second disc over the first one, which seems to lack consistency and is musically all over the map. The second disc has much more unity and almost sounds like a feature film score opposed to a compilation. Disc one does have some highlights, such as "The Terrible Truth", Together or Not at All" and , " Goodbye Pond".

I have now listened this four times intently. A year´s best release thus far for me and likely to remain so (well, there is still that other Gold release coming). Composer´s musical energy is still on a level of its own and his fascinating rhythms and unforgettable melodies are myriad. Highlights being the music from Asylum of the Daleks, The Angels Take Manhattan, The Bells of Saint John (Clara´s Theme, what innocence and beauty), The Rings of Akhaten (a masterpiece; The Long Song is sublime) and The Name of the Doctor.
This CD only strengthened my belief that there are still avenues for greatness in film music when you have the right composer in a right project. The fun Gold is having is palpable, the power of his music undiminished. Long may he continue!

You can listen to an interview with Murray Gold at www.filmmusicsite.com. He talks about his music for Doctor Who.

Nice interview. I knew about his favourite composer list including Herrmann and Morricone (my own two top listers), and now he adds Elfman and Goldsmith. Let's face it, he's one of us!

Does anybody think he could do a Bond? I do.

Indeed I'd love to see him get a shot at Bond as I really think he could do it but fear he isn't a big enough name for the producers/studio.

It'd be a piece of cake for him! There are in fact many Bond-ish moments throughout his Who stuff. None more so than during The Impossible Astronaut.

But I fear tarasis is right. Of course he's pals with David Arnold, who joins in the chorus on The Stowaway, the song written for the Christmas Special Voyage of the Damned, according to Murray's soundtrack cd notes. So who knows? Perhaps it's not completely impossible for Arnold to recommend him, if he should be busy one day...

He's composed Doctor Who music for over eight years, (and been a smashing success) how is he not well known enough to compose music for another famous British franchise? confused I mean do the general public really know who David Arnold is? (or care)

No they don't. But I'm sure one of the good things about Murray's concerts also being about families and kids enjoying a 'Doctor Who show', and of course the BBC's own remit to give classical and orchestral music to the masses via the Proms, is that maybe a few more people will know who Murray Gold is.

I'd love to see him achieve movie success, though I'd be much the sadder if it meant him having less time for Doctor Who!
