Like Bear McCreary, Murray Gold is getting better and better. The score for the new doctor has an interesting history. In the first half of the first series it was mostly incidental music with very little original material, it got a bit better in the second half and from the interviews with Murray Gold from that era it becomes clear he thought that this was as epic as it would get but we know of course he was dead wrong. From series two on, Murray worked extensively with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales and its choir. The music now truly took off and sounded more like the score for some movie.The third series was less melodic and more experimental, yet it had some highlights. We have now reached the fourth series and with it we receive an intensely, harmonious and epic score that sweeps away with grand melodic structures that will take the breath away not only of Whovians but of any right minded music lover.

The score starts of course with the main theme of series four which is unfortunately maybe one of the few tracks I do not like. I really tried to get used to the new mix but I could never warm up to it. "A Noble Girl About Town " fits very well to the episode, since it was a light-hearted and slightly cheesy episode. "Life Among the Distant Stars " must also be from the first episode yet the tone is very different. It starts as a quiet, reflective piano piece with a tinge of sadness and yearning, that ends with a full orchestra. I am not sure when the track was used and in what context. I guess I have to watch the first episode again.

"Song of Captivity and Freedom" is the first time that the listener hears the "Song of Freedom" sung only by a single mezzo soprano. It gave me goosebumps. "UNIT Rocks" does exactly that and made me grin.

This album doesn't disappoint. Although I think I still prefer the series 3 album, there are some real gems on it and there isn't a single track I would skip on iTunes. In the CD jacket itself Murray Gold gives a sentence or two about each track, which is nice to read while listening to the album for the first time.
1) Doctor Who Series Four Opening Credits - the absolutely AWESOME new Dr Who theme tune, I loved it from the first time I heard it and couldn't wait to get my hands on it. 10/10
2) A Noble Girl About Town - a slightly jazzed up version of 'Donna's Theme', and fun to listen to. 8/10
3) Life Among the Distant Stars - not one of the best but pleasant to listen to, especially in the second half. 7/10
4) Corridors and Fire Escapes - generic "Doctor running" music, not one of my favourites. 5/10
5) The Sybilline Sisterhood - begins with some ethnic vocals which make for interesting listening and set the scene for the Pompeii episode. 7/10
6) Songs of Captivity and Freedom - this sounds like something you'd hear on Classical FM. Lovely. 9/10
7) UNIT Rocks - a newer version of the first album's 'UNIT' track. 7/10
8) The Doctor's Daughter - gets good towards the end. 7/10
9) The Source - there's a really powerful tune in this that starts up about halfway through, it keeps playing in my head. 9/10
10) The Unicorn and the Wasp - this one really brings back memories of the episode it was used in (the Agatha Christie one), although it isn't one of the best. 6/10
11) The Doctor's Theme Series Four - I'll always love the Doctor's Theme from the first album best, but this is still a great track. Beautiful choral chanting. 9/10
12) Voyage of the Damned Suite - contains a real range of tunes and mood.

As a reviewer mentioned before, the previous Murray Gold scores for Doctor Who are always on my Mp3 player. By a long way, the best score for any TV show currently on (UK or US). So good, that it feels cinematic. The growth from Series 1 (not my favourite) to the epic sounds in the Series 3 soundtrack are astonishing. Series four topped it all. The new Doctor Who Theme (sends chills down the spine with all the new drums and horns), the thrilling finale to Turn Left and of course the Song For Freedom are the highlights for me, but nothing here is just padding.
If the proposed big screen Doctor Who goes ahead, it simply wont work without Murray Golds' input. Listen and love it and enjoy every episode again and again....

I was really pleased when Murray Gold was asked to compose the music for Doctor Who as I love the way he composes. :-)

This CD contains the original music score from series 4.

Over both series the melodies he composed were flowing, lyrical, romantic, haunting, powerful, mournful, plenty of action and darker themes when each episode needed it. I also love the choral work in tracks: - 5, 6, 11, 23 and 26. :-)

I also love how Murray Gold orchestrated these soundtracks.

You get a lovely CD booklet that has still photos from the show as well as articles and info about each track. :-)

This is an excellent CD and it also reminds me of series 4.

Doctor Who Series 4 * * * * *
Music composed by Murray Gold
Silva Screen SILCD1275 (RT 76:40)

Opening with the revised main theme for Season 4, this new version employs a harder hitting shorter theme, coupled with a lovely electric guitar twang to finish the theme off with. From here, it's 2: A Noble Girl About Town and essentially Donna's theme. Gold expands on what we had before with a really toe tapping 7-note motif for the temp from Chiswick.

Full of boom and bass, 4: Corridors and Fire Escapes is an action track for the stairs sequence in Partners in Crime amongst other uses. In some ways it's almost Bond-like and very enjoyable.

6: Songs of Captivity and Freedom brings in the Ood story and some heartfelt singing from Mark Chambers. The accompaniment on strings is just beautiful and really lovely, encompassing the sad plight of the Ood perfectly.

Further tracks on 8: The Doctor's Daughter and 9: The Source bring re-uses of the Doctor's theme and also that guitar once again for the unveiling of the aforementioned daughter, Jenny. The later track encompasses some lovely sad string work, building for the horn led statement from the Doctor 'I Never Would'

10: The Unicorn and the Wasp brings in a chamber orchestra, perfectly setting this in murder mystery mode. Eerie, and with a small snatch from Miss Marple, it sounds completely different to a normal Who episode. I love Gold's playful use mid way through the track, then switched for echoed strings.

A real highlight comes in the next few tracks with 12: Voyage of the Damned Suite, the Christmas special from 2007. This is just Gold at his powerhouse best. Mixing the action beats with the song The Stowaway, it has some lovely sequences.
