There is a lot of talk about the storylines on Doctor Who, the characters, the plot twists and the great quotes, but I don’t think there is enough attention paid to the music of Doctor Who. Doctor Who fans all rightfully know that the show’s composer Murray Gold is a genius but the mainstream seems to be in the dark.

Music in TV shows can heighten tensions, add suspense and inject some much needed emotion, but can anyone name another TV show whose music is so damn good on its own that is can sustain a night at the Proms all on its very own?  I can’t.  Doctor Who is unique in this regard and it is all thanks to the genius of Murray Gold.

Even if you are not a fan of Doctor Who, listen to the track below and I dare you not to get your emotions all stirred up by it.

‘Trust me, I’m the Doctor’.

    Since moving to Germany we’ve heard a lot about this Doctor Who character & my interest is piqued. But where to start in such an epic show? Is there a particular episode you can jump into?

      I would recommend jumping in at the beginning of Season 5 as you have a brand new doctor and a brand new companion, so it is a great starting point. However, if you have time on your hands, you can start back at Season 1. I recommend not starting back right at the very beginning as you would have almost 50 years to catch up on.

What are you thinking?
