To be honest, the massive over-scoring of Dr. Who is exactly why I don't like about the new series but I know I'm unusual in that.
I feel exactly the same way Stephen. The score tries too hard in either ratcheting up the action or pushing the emotional buttons and it's just too wall to wall. For once I find the sound mix of the music to be too up front as it often makes the dialogue hard to hear.
Where 99 percent of the scores are boring, droning, and underdeveloped, Murray Gold's DW scores resonates with sweeping themes and emotions. It's music about something.
