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!

Read all the other great reviews for this album, because it is spectacular. I only wish one track hadn't been excluded. We get the rendition of "Abide with Me" from the Gridlock Episode, but we're missing the even better arrangement of "The Old Rugged Cross" that's in the same episode. This coming from an atheist mind you... Religion aside, most can agree the church as provided some excellent inspiration for music and has been a muse for composers over the many years and Murray's arrangement of that song and the BBC Wales' Orchestra and Choir simply took my BREATH AWAY with that soaring arrangement. No other recording of that song to me as even come CLOSE to what Murray Gold did with his arrangement. Being musically trained myself, I counted no less than twelve choir parts with counterpoint at the crescendo of that number as it swelled. IMPRESSIVE. Sadly, it's not available anywhere I can find, so I'm really disappointed it didn't make the cut onto this album.

I've long since been a fan of Doctor Who, both the classic and the modern, and out of all the Doctors, Ten was my favorite. So when CD sets of the music from my favorite era of the show were released, I knew I had to have them. Murray Gold really has a knack for creating unique soundtracks that put the audience in just the right mood for whatever's happening on the show, be it happy, sad, scary, or triumphant. The music really makes the show sound more like a Hollywood movie, rather than just a TV series.

On this compilation, some of my favorite tracks include:
-"Gridlocked Cassinis" (a quirky, day in the life theme, to accompany the show's funnier moments)
-"The Futurekind" (an extremely fast paced, catchy piece of chase music)
-and "Donna's Theme" (another calmer, day in the life piece, that gives off the vibe of strolling down fifth avenue)

If you're a fan of the show, and/or are a lover of music and movie soundtracks, you definately need to check out this compilation. Murray Gold is, no doubt, the unsung hero of making Doctor Who even more epic than it already is.
