This review is from: Doctor Who - The 50th Anniversary Collection (CD) (Audio CD)
This special collection of music and sound effects covers all the TV Doctors spanning 50 years. While the first CD for the early years is a bit short on actual music, you get sound effects to help boost the contents, it still manages to capture the spirit of those early episodes. In fact, it's quite surprising how much of the music triggers the memory. By the time we get to the late Tom Baker era, I can remember the visuals as the "suites" for episodes such as Logopolis and The Caves of Androzani for Peter Davison play out.
The full versions of the theme tune are also featured for most of the Doctors and it's the first time I've ever heard the full length theme for The Trial of a Time Lord and McCoy series. The modern era though is only represented by the Eccleston/Tennant short version, the series 4 Tennant and both Matt Smith versions are missing, which is a shame. All in all this is a great collection for a fan even if like me you have the contents of disc 4 on the various OST albums for the new series.
