Product Description

CD Description

A specially priced two-CD set that bring to a close the David Tennant era of Doctor Who. Disc 1 includes selected cues from The Next Doctor, Planet Of The Dead and The Waters Of Mars. Disc 2 is entirely given over to The End Of Time Parts 1 & 2 and features “Vale Decem”, the moving choral farewell to the tenth Doctor. David Tennant’s departure as Doctor Who was one of the most watched programmes of Christmas 2009 and subsequent interest in the release of the music on fansites has been huge. As Matt Smith, the new doctor put it, "Murray Gold is incredible, totally incredible, a genius."

What a masterpiece!!!

This 2 CD set is amazing! Murray Gold's stirring soundtrack will bring back memories from David Tennant's amazing and heartbreaking final episodes.

The highlight - the 2nd CD, music from The End of the Time. "Vale Decem" the final aria to the 10th Doctor will have you weeping as you remember his time as the keeper of the TARDIS and his regeneration.

Would recommend to all!

Silva Screen Records presents "DOCTOR WHO - SERIES 4 - THE SPECIALS" [ORIGINAL TV SOUNDTRACK]" -- Murray Gold, once again has struck it rich with this latest release from the classic series of "Doctor Who", as they say there is "Gold" in them thar hills --- Much musicality within each cue and track that makes this a wonderful listen, even if you're not into soundtracks or film scores --- The fans and collectors alike will not be disappointed --- Who knows what's in store in the Season 5 soundtrack, it can't get much better than this one.

Mr. Jim's Ratings:
Quality of Sound: 5 Stars
Performance: 5 Stars
Mixing: 5 Stars
Overall: 5 Stars [Arrangements & Song Selection]

Composer Murray Gold, is best known for his powerful score for "Doctor Who" which is widely regarded as a major element in the revival of the classic cult series --- This latest endeavor gives us a glimpse into why this project is so popular and has never faded from the small screen and the fans who clamor for more --- Each theme is arranged so that you're in the series with the characters, which gives you a feeling that you're involved and included with each scene --- This is a new listening experience that should catch on with other composers.

Stand up and take a bow ~ Ben Foster (Orchestrated & Conductor), Murray Gold (Composer/Producer), Reynold D'Silva (Executive Producer), Jake Jackson and Gerry O'Riordan (Engineers) --- must say this collection meets all expectations --- a real winner!

***This is a review about the technicalities of the CD pressing, and NOT the music itself.***

For reasons unbeknown to us mere mortals, the BBC have seen fit to press this CD from lossy masters. Lossy, for those not familiar with the term, basically means that the audio is compressed and data/frequencies are discarded in order to reduce the file size. MP3 is a lossy format. Compact Disc is a lossless format, meaning the audio has full bandwidth (a full frequency response to 22khz) with no loss of data, frequency or subtleties.

In other words, the master recordings for this CD have been pressed to CD from a format like MP3, instead of full quality lossless masters. You can check this by simply extracting one of the tracks from the CD to a format like WAV and examining the audio spectrum in a program like Adobe Audition CS6 (PC). Any areas of black denote the missing audio data, which cannot be recovered. The result is a compressed, slightly muddy sound that lacks depth, sheen and quality.

This is a very disappointing situation, as Mr. Gold's music deserves a lot better treatment. It would be interesting to see how this happened; indeed similar situations befell the CD releases of both G.I. Joe - The Rise Of Cobra and the Lesbian Vampire Killers OST. Whilst Silva Screen were quick to rectify the situation on the latter, the BBC seem to have taken the stance of Varese Sarabande on the former and stood by the "quality" of their aurally inferior product.

Some tracks very short, others hit the nail on the head. To all you Dr Who buffs it's a must as a collection item which is where it is now in mine

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
First and foremost, the music is simply fantastic. And for 2 CDs at the same price as one, it is a real bargain. The first disk comprises tracks from the first three specials, and the 2nd contains selected tracks from The End of Time. The music on the first disk is slightly variable, but does nonetheless contain a lot of enjoyable tracks. I particularly liked the ones from the Christmas special The Next Doctor. The 2nd disk is where it picks up, feeling more cinematic and epic in scope. Do not be fooled into thinking every cue from the End of Time is present, it isn't. People should stop complaining about what cues were missing and focus on the outstanding tracks which were delivered.

Secondly, the sound quality is amazing, the mixing guys should give themselves a pat on the back. Very crisp indeed. If you enjoyed any of the previous CDs then definitely buy this, it is the perfect end to Tennant's era on the show.

Murray Gold's music from the specials was probably the most well-crafted of his soundtracks for Doctor Who. There were many stand-out and powerful tracks - unfortunately, some appear to have been missed.

The album as a soundtrack is superb. The music is well produced and there's a wide range of material. There are cartoonish adventurous pieces (A Bit of a Drag, The Cat Burglar), powerful epic melodies (Final Days, The Clouds Pass), sad and reflective tunes (The Fate of Little Adelaide, Vale) and suspenseful climactic tracks (A Dream of Catastrophe, The Master Suite).

Regrettably, some brilliant harmonic pieces have not been released, most notably from The Waters Of Mars and The End Of Time Part 1. Those brilliantly powerful tracks which you would assume would be a must for inclusion on the album are never heard, which comes as a disappointment to some who have been waiting for such a long time.

But there are some phenomenal pieces to enjoy. Of course, there is a faithful (if rather quiet) performance of Vale Decem and a fantastic unused cue which follows in the track Vale. Both tracks are huge successes which are difficult to stop listening to.

Overall, if you're a fan of Murray Gold and generally enjoy his music, this is probably the best purchase you could make. But if you're looking for particular cues used in the episodes, don't expect them all to be included.
