The series 3 soundtrack is one of the best soundtracks of the year.

It features some really wonderful percussion mixed with urgent strings and some rousing choir work.

Murray Gold has worked diligently as the composer for the reinvented Doctor Who over the past three years, and his effort in crafting an engaging musical experience really shows. As the program continues to evolve, so does the music. In series 3, there is a fine blend of stand-alone compositions and recurring leitmotifs. It's big, it's grand, and it's confident. And rightfully so.

The content of the album is uniformly excellent, and there isn't a track on the disc I would label as filler.

The disc opens with "All the Strange, Strange Creatures", a pulse pounding action motif that appears throughout series 3. It's an infinitely memorable composition, and it's something I find myself humming as I go about my daily tasks.

"Martha's Theme" is a beautiful melody featuring the vocals of Melanie Pappenheim (whom fans will recognize from the previous album, no doubt). As much as I liked "Rose's Theme", I think "Martha's Theme" is a much more memorable track, in no small part thanks to Miss Pappenheim's beautiful vocalizations. The accompanying orchestral swells are also rather moving.

"Drowning Dry" is a great bit of horror music. It's the kind of thing one might expect in a traditional monster film, and it conveys a real sense of foreboding and dread.

"The Carrionites Swarm" was a welcomed surprise. The music appears in the finale of 'The Shakespeare Code', but I don't particularly remember hearing it during the episode. When I first read a track list for the CD, I struggled to remember what it sounded like, but rather than go back and watch the episode I waited to hear it on the CD. It features some really wonderful percussion mixed with urgent strings and some rousing choir work. Lovely stuff. It ranks in my top 5 tracks on the disc.

Doctor Who: Series Three, in my opinion, is one of the most beautifully scored television seasons. The fact that it's scored with a full orchestra, like Series One and Two, is truly a treat for the ears; but Mr. Gold's music within Series Three has grown right along with the new series. It's thrilling, bittersweet and poignant.

The opening track, 'All the Strange, Strange Creatures,' will sweep you up and make you impatient, to the point of finger drumming, for Series Four!

The main reason I bought it was for the music from the final three episodes of Series Three, which is absolutely gorgeous and heart-pounding. 'This is Gallifrey: Our Childhood, Our Home,' is particularly moving, especially in light of how Series Three ended. Mr. Gold's score for our favorite Time Lord's recalling of his lost home planet carries within it all of the mystery and allure that any fan could imagine; and on this soundtrack, it's an extended version, with an almost child-like, fairy-tale refrain in the middle.

The waltz-like 'Martha's Theme' and 'Martha Triumphant,' variations of which played throughout Series Three, are beautiful compositions, which capture the personality and presence of Martha perfectly. 'Donna's Theme,' captures the quirkiness of Catherine Tate's character, which we'll be seeing more of in Series Four.

Overall, if you liked the soundtrack to Series One and Two, well, you're gonna LOVE this! Mr. Gold has exceeded himself and, in my mind, has cemented himself as one of the great modern composers of (dare I say it?!?) contemporary classical music. Incidental though it may be, there is nothing incidental about it!

This soundtrack follows quick on one before,
Expanding its concepts in ways most bold.
No rehash inertia, nothing to bore;
Not resting on his laurels, Murray Gold!
The warm romantic sweep of Martha's theme,
Weird chants of Dalek hybrid genesis,
Elegies of the Doctor's mortal dream,
Harsh drumbeats of his reborn nemesis:
All these but the merest hint of the range.
That said, of lacunae there are a few.
Still, this is music most wondrous and strange,
Sure to appeal to fans of Doctor Who.
Hear this CD in all its varied tones,
Relive the tales of Doctors Smith and Jones!

In comparing the new Dr. Who to the older series, many people talk about the improvements in the writing, the production values (sets, costumes, etc.), and the overall acting (many of the earlier Doctors were played by good actors, but the same couldn't always be said for many of the other characters). But one area that really is key to what makes the new Dr. Who so good is the music. In the earlier Dr. Who series, the music, apart from the title theme, wasn't very memorable; it was pretty generic TV music. The all changed with the new series, however. Starting with series 1, the music got better. Now, with series 3, it's gotten better still. The series 3 soundtrack is one of the best soundtracks of the year.

The music works very well to enhance the series, portaying a range of emotions, helping create a sense of wonder in places, and really setting the whole tone of the series. A few tracks, in particular, are worth calling out:

"All the Stange Strange Creatures" establishes both an action pace and at the same time a sense of awe. It works through several variations, using various instruments, and is one of the best pieces on the album.

"A Dream of a Normal Death" and "The Doctor Forever" also are awe inspiring (the use of human voice in the "The Doctor Forever" is marvelous). They also help capture something in the new Dr. Who that wasn't present in the older shows: a sense of loss, a sense that even a happy ending can have a touch of tragedy about it.

This continues on what may be the best track on the album, "This Is Gallifrey: Our Childhood, Our Home," which establishes both a longing as well as a thrilling sense of wonder.

It's about time! (Or rather about a Time Lord...)
I've had this since shortly after it was released in the UK. I had to order it from amazon.co.uk but it was worth it and I simply haven't been able to stop listening to it. I even emailed amazon.com and asked why they didn't have it ready to release with the season 3 DVD...they never responded.... Read More
