4.0 out of 5 stars A christmas carol 19 April 2011
Format:Audio CD
Once again Murray Gold has proved that he is the perfect man to produce the backing music for Doctor Who. His reccent soundtracks have all been excellent my personal favourite being the specials edition for the final four episodes of David Tennants reign as the tenth Doctor. This album however has some excellent backing music of its own which takes you back through the journey of the chirstmas episode scene by scene with some wonderful music. My person favourites on this album are 'Come along pond' because it is dramatic and was the track used for the openings equence of the episode. Also the track that is my most favourite has to be 'Abigail's song' written by Murray Gold and performed by Catherine Jenkins i just think its a really nice, mood setting track which is by far the best on the album. I hope the music for series 6 is even better and i would receommned the Doctor Who music to anyone.

Murray Gold has done another fantastic job on this soundtrack. Unlike Doctor Who: Series 5 which had the new Doctor's theme in abundance, this release has fewer references to it, and when it does pop up, the orchestrations are slightly different which keeps the theme feeling fresh. The score has some great orchestral and choral writing, with just the right Christmas feel as to feel wintry but not clichéd.

Of course, the highlight has to be Abigail's Song (Silence is All You Know), with the angelic Katherine Jenkins making it sound effortless. The album is worth the price for this one track alone. The weaving of Abigail's theme in some of the tracks is rather brilliant ("I Can't Save Her" and "Shark Ride" and "New Memories" are sublime example of this).

I would say this album really shows the strength of Murray Gold's writing. Because he wasn't so heavily reliant on the Doctor's theme, this seems to have allowed him to be more creative in the orchestrations and melodies throughout the entire album, especially with Abigail's Theme. The National Orchestra of Wales have once again done a fantastic job and the recording mix is brilliant. Running in at 49 minutes, it probably has most of (if not all) of the music present in the episode and feels like it is a perfect length. If you liked Gold's previous scores, it is highly likely you will enjoy this!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good fun 21 Mar 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Murray Gold's music to the 2010 Christmas Special is, like the Special itself, good fun and nothing more. The music is typically lush, laced with choirs, a wallop of timpani and lots of glittery tinkly bells and the like - the usual Murray Gold, to be honest - and has the bonus of 'Abigail's Song' to round it all off. All very nice.

Why 3 stars? Well, to be honest - as much as I like Gold's music and style - I do wonder if this was a necessary release. Nearly all of the tracks are very short, a few tracks stand out and his Doctor Who music is - let's be honest - slightly repetitive, no matter how energetic or fun. This might have benefited from being reworked as a longer, more coherent suite than the brief snippets on offer.

Still, it's fun, it's sweet - just don't expect anything amazing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Doctor Who - A Christmas Carol Sountrack CD 30 Jan 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is another great Murray Gold Doctor Who soundtrack. Murray Gold has triumphed again. A highlight of this CD is "Abigail's Song" sung by Katherine Jenkins. For those in the USA, please note that the CD version offered by is a "factory produced" CD (the real deal), whereas the version sold by in the US is a CD-R - produced to order. I find the real CD preferable. I highly recommend this soundtrack, along with all the other Murray Gold Doctor Who soundtracks that I have in my collection. So far, I have purchased up through series-5, The Specials, and this one. The subsequent CD's are on my wish list.

The music is great but generally it feels... a little unnecessary. All of the other Christmas specials have been included in part of the other albums. Read more
