After waiting for 2 years the BBC have finally released the fantastic soundtrack to what is essentially their flagship television show.

Murray Gold, the British equivalent to America's Bear McCreary (check out the Battlestar Galactica CD's to see what I mean) weaves a collection beautiful scores which span seasons 1 and 2.

It's not until you listen to this soundtrack that you realise just how much of the series is affected by this music.

The CD consists of 31 tracks, starting with that unforgettable opening theme and launches straight into Westminster Bridge which is the first track from the episode Rose.

From there we launch into a collection of tracks from across the first two seasons and both Christmas specials. The only downside here is that they are not in episode order but for those with a keen ear you can work out what goes where.

Several tracks stand out from the rest; the touching Father's Day, the haunting Doctor's theme (one of my favourites), the militaristic UNIT, the dramatic scores for both the Cybermen and the Daleks and the bittersweet Doomsday are all excellent.

There are several great examples of leitmotif for certain characters which occur in other tracks and add an audio cue for the audience as to what's about to happen.

There are two songs by Neil Hannon, Song For Ten (from the Christmas Invasion as David Tennant goes through his clothes in the Tardis wardrobe) and Love Don't Roam (from the reception in The Runaway Bride) which are both good tracks as there are used as cues in other pieces of music.

All in all this CD gives you 75 minutes of great music and it's a must for any sci-fi collection. If you enjoyed this then check out any of the current Battlestar Galactica, Firefly, Serenity and Alien Nation soundtracks for more good sci-fi music of similar quality.

Enjoy!

Wow is the one word that sums up this sound track. I have never been a big fan of sounds tracks as so many have been poor in the past - so i was a little apprehensive about this one. However, i need not have been as this is to put it simply a brilliant sound track all round.

As past reviewers have said if you close your eyes on some tracks you can visualise the scenes in your head "The Daleks" and The Cybermen" being two tracks that do just that.

Then you get the haunting sounds of "Fathers Day", "Madam De Pompadour", "The Impossible Planet" and the incredible "Doomsday" used at the end of series 2.

However, the best track of all has to be the full version of the Doctor Who Theme it's brilliant really is worth the listen on it's own.

Murray Gold has done wonders in the world of Doctor Who with this outstanding album. If your a fan of Doctor Who or sound tracks then i urge you to buy this album as you'll not be disappointed.

Utterly brilliant. This CD gives you the chance to listen to the music without the show and it is even more haunting and memorable. Murray Gold is a great composer, may he always write the music for Doctor Who. The emotional 'Doomsday" track is wonderful however and clear favourite but I think a true masterpiece comes in the form of 'The Impossible Planet'...spine chilling. Highly recommended for all DOctor Who fans and lovers of music in general

An excellent cd to accompany an excellent series! I had no idea that a cd of the music to series 1 and 2 had been released, it was only by luck I stumbled across this, but when I saw it for [...]. I thought it might be worth a look at.Even without paying extra for 24hr delivery it arrived on my doorstep the next morning so well done Amazon for that. The cd itself comes in a jewel case with a card outers sleeve also, inside is a booklet that gives you a little insight into each of the tracks and also contains some nice photos. The musical score itself is superb with some very moving and outstanding pieces, favourites of mine have to be Madame De Pompadour and Doomsday both of which tug at the heart strings. Hopefully another cd will follow as the music from series 3 is proving to be just as good.

Since the first episode of the new series to the latest I've enjoyed the Murray Gold scores. Since getting an orchestra for the second series the music became even more powerful.

Who fans were desperate for this album since Song For Ten was first heard at the end of 2005 - it's been a long wait, and although Tim Phillips doesn't sing on this version, Neil Hannon (from the Divine Comedy) does a superb job.

Rose's Theme is very emotive, as are many of the tracks. I look forward to listening to further Murray Gold music during future series, and hopefully further albums! ;-)

Whether you're a DW fan or not, you have to appreciate that this is a set of very good quality compositions.

Soundtrack CDs can so often be a let-down. Not so here - pretty much all of the music here is genuinely fantastic. It could be enjoyed in its own right, but if you've followed the two series of Doctor Who closely there's an added dimension as each track recalls favourite moments - some happy, some sad, some just downright exciting.

Plus, the two songs performed by the wonderful Neil Hannon (of The Divine Comedy) are a welcome addition, both being great, lively tracks which benefit from his versatile voice.

Highly recommended!
