A Duck Playing the Piano
Since Doctor Who returned in 2005 Murray Gold has been at the heart of creating the right feel for every episode with his fascinating soundtracks, multi-layered, extravagantly arranged and memorable pieces of music that tell story after story whether in the context of an episode or when listened to alone.
While some have criticised his continued connection with the show (they’ll miss him when he’s gone!) most of us look forward to his work on the show which ranges from his various arrangements of the theme tune to “Song for Ten” at the end of “The Christmas Invasion”, from “All the Strange, Strange Creatures” (the one you hear when stuff gets desperate for the Tenth Doctor) to “I Am The Doctor”, first heard in The Eleventh Hour.
