Series 6 Soundtrack Announced!

It’s been a long time coming, but fans of Murray Gold’s amazing soundtracks will soon be able to add the music of Series 6 to their collection.

Silva Screen Records – through Amazon, naturally – have revealed that the two-CD set will be released in the UK on 5th December… just in time for Christmas! It’s likely to be a double-disc set, like previous soundtracks, but track listings are still to be announced.

Murray Gold has worked for the series since its return in 2005, and has three variations of the theme tune under his belt. Alongside conductor, Ben Foster, and the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, Gold’s music has also filled London’s Royal Albert Hall with the Doctor Who Proms.

The first soundtrack was released in December 2006, but the range has grown considerably, covering series 1-4, the 2009 Specials, Series 5 and, most recently, A Christmas Carol.

Personally, I think the music has maintained a very high standard, but Series 5 has to be my favourite so far. Has anybody else got any favourites?

This two-disc soundtrack is available now to pre-order for just £10.72 on Amazon.

    Yes. The standard has been high and series 5 just about wins over the others. I do miss a ‘full length’ version of the theme though. We haven’t had a proper version since his first album and I can’t understand that decision. I’m hoping it will be on this album but somehow doubt it. We didn’t get one of the series 4 version either. A one minute version is far too short.

    Have to say I’ve not enjoyed series 5 that much. I found the Doctor’s motif very repetitive (even though in itself, a great piece) and very little else caught me. There were a couple of musical moments this series I enjoyed, but I don’t think Murray has been as strong since the production change and I really don’t know why. Before hand Doctor Who had a load of really catchy motifs each year, now I struggle to hear anything beyond the Doctor’s theme. Still bugs me that we’re missing so many crucial cues from previous series too. They should do a missing collection!
