“Ever since Doctor Who’s revival in 2005, Murray Gold’s incidental music has become as iconic as the theme tune (originally composed by Ron Grainer) he re-arranged. It takes sadness and provokes tears. It takes danger and quickens the pulse. It takes adventures through time and space with a mad man in a box and – somehow – makes it all seem even more weird and wonderful than it already is.” – Radio Times
It has been an exciting 10 years since the Doctor Who brand was revitalized by the brilliant Russell T Davies. The 2005 revival saw the program and its music splendidly reinvented, the radiophonic textures replaced by a bold orchestral sound that compares to Hollywood’s best.
This 3-disc set will be the first soundtrack release of music from the twelfth Doctor Who, Peter Capaldi, featuring the new Doctor’s theme A Good Man? (Twelve’s Theme). It also includes the music from the episode Last Christmas and an extensive 24-page booklet with notes from Murray Gold. The score is performed by the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, Murray Gold (computer instruments, guitars and synths) and conducted by Ben Foster and James Shearman. Missy’s Theme from episode 6, The Caretaker, is sung by Halia Meguid, whose ethereal voice was heard in the Series 6 and 7 scores.
Murray Gold’s phenomenal output as a composer began more then twenty years ago. He has since stacked up five BAFTA nominations (two for Doctor Who) plus three Royal Television Society nominations and a win for Queer As Folk.
The upcoming Worldwide Doctor Who Symphonic Spectacular tour will feature music from Series 8. For more information on the tour click here: http://www.doctorwho.tv/events/doctor-who-symphonic-spectacular/
