The first CD of music from the resurrected ‘Doctor Who’ series covers the first two series and the two specials, ‘The Christmas Invasion’ and ‘The Runaway Bride’ of the new run. As such, this massive thirty-one tracks has a lot of ground to cover but typical of composer Murray Gold, there’s an effortless continuity between them to make an interesting blend of action and passive music that you get carried from one track to the next, often without even needing to read which one is which.

The track names should create no problems when it come to identifying which episodes they were sourced from should you need to really know. Two of the tracks are actually songs performed by Noel Hanson but the balance is so good they still fit within the ensemble piece.

The ten page booklet features information about each track by Murray Smith as well as some photographs from the series of both Doctors, Rose and some villains.

The entire selection makes for an interesting background selection that should keep all you Doctor Who fans happy.
