This ‘Doctor Who’ CD compromises the music from Series 3 and the two specials, ‘The Runaway Bride’ and ‘Voyage Of The Damned’ although, interestingly, it actually starts off with the rousing music from the trailer. In fact, the entire album is very spirited and will rouse your spirits for this November.
The excellent ‘My Angel Put The Devil In Me’, performed by Yamit Mamo, carries on that way. I should point out that this isn’t the original sung by Miranda Raison in the actual episode of ‘Daleks In Manhattan’, although Murray Gold indicates that might happen at a later date. Even so, it’s a very good number and worth listening to away from the episode. Pure magic.
The ten page booklet features a decent selection of photos as well as information from Murray Gold about all the tracks.
I don’t normally compare CDs, but having all four seasons together and hearing them in succession, albeit a little out of order, this one has to be the most upbeat. It really stirs the blood. Undoubtedly, if you’re a ‘Doctor Who’ fan and like Murray Gold’s music then you’re going to buy all of these CDs eventually. If you have to choose the order in which to buy them in then I would choose this one to start with. You’ll then quickly buy the rest.
