Day Of The Doctor/ Time Of The Doctor CD Soundtrack

2013 was an epochal year for Doctor Who and the two specials reflected the series monumental impact as a British cultural icon.

The Day Of The Doctor celebrated the 50th anniversary of the series with a story that weaved in many references to its distinguished past and was transmitted to 94 countries, the largest ever simulcast for a TV drama.

The Time Of The Doctor in the now traditional Christmas Day slot showcased the departure of Matt Smith and Peter Capaldis debut as the twelfth Doctor.

Ever since Doctor Whos revival in 2005, Murray Golds incidental music has become as iconic as the theme tune (originally composed by Ron Grainer) he re-arranged. It takes sadness and provokes tears.

It takes danger and quickens the pulse. It takes adventures through time and space with a mad man in a box and ” somehow ” makes it all seem even more weird and wonderful than it already is ” Radio Times

Released November 24, 2014.

    I’m curious. Why, since the Season 5 soundtrack vae we not had any updated theme tunes on the cds.(11’s theme was absent completely on the 50th Anniversary cd) 11th Doctor has had tweaks and there was a new arrangement at the end of DotD. Surely it’s not a right’s issue. Any chance you can query this Booboo ?

    No song for 50! 🙁

      It wasn’t in either of these episodes.

    • When The Doctor Was Me

      October 31st, 2014 - 10:45am

      I know, but it is still a soundtrack that was created for the 50th so as a bonus track i thought they might have been included!

    Silva Screeen set me the album artwork earlier. As I predicted, it’s two reversible covers showing the promotional images from the 2013 specials.

    Disc 1 Track 22 I presume is the “saving Gallifrey” scene.
    Disc 2 Track 3 sounds… interesting. (at least there isn’t a video to accompany it though)

    • Jaffa Cakes

      October 29th, 2014 - 6:17pm

      I think you’re right with Disc 1 Track 22.

      The music starts off with an original song for the final scene in the barn, IIRC, and then blends into a lovely version of The Majestic Tale during the saving Gallifrey sequence.

    Always been a fan of Murray’s work, so I’ll be getting this.
    However, I didn’t think there was very much new music throughout these two specials. I thought it was sort of a collection of tracks from the past. On which note, it does seem to be quite “reprisey”. Oh well, I’ll be getting it anyway!

  • Where In Time And Space

    October 28th, 2014 - 11:16pm

    YES!, I love the soundtracks! Thank You Murray Gold

  • Dalek Control

    October 28th, 2014 - 10:46pm

    Yes! Been waiting for this announcement for a while. Can’t wait to get this. : )

  • Sam Richard Bentley

    October 28th, 2014 - 10:04pm

    Not sure whether to get this or not. I recently sold my Series 5,6 and 2009 Specials Soundtracks… but I feel this might be nice to have. Hmm.

    • StetsonDoctor

      October 28th, 2014 - 10:07pm

      I’d say wait for the samples to be honest…

    • Sam Richard Bentley

      October 28th, 2014 - 10:14pm

      I mean I am tempted to get this and the 50 year Soundtrack collection.

      I won’t be buying it now anyway, not any time soon I mean.

  • Gazza T

    Starting to wonder why the opening and closing title music keeps being omitted from the Soundtracks, they’ve not stuck them in since the series 5 soundtrack.

    • bryan Simcott

      October 28th, 2014 - 9:31pm

      Each time the use a Theme tune they have to pay copyright for it. Plus the track might take up space if both CDs are heading for the 75 min limit that seems to be the optimum length

    • Gazza T

      October 28th, 2014 - 9:40pm

      Thanks for the explanation, seems a shame that we’ve missed out on the series 7b theme tune and the awesome remix used for the Day of the Doctor closing titles, still looks a great soundtrack.

    • SomeFunnyDrWhoReference

      October 31st, 2014 - 8:19am

      That’s fine if it’s using the same version already released but 11’s theme has been updated since season 5 and there was a whole new arrangement at the end of DotD. These should be included. Also, 11’s thee was missing completely from the 50th Anniversary cd set

  • whonose1963

    October 28th, 2014 - 9:04pm

    Why 24th November? Surely 23rd November makes more sense as it will be one year since the 50th!

    • bryan Simcott

      October 28th, 2014 - 9:30pm

      23rd is a sunday , when nothing is “released” So 24th is the nearest, although most of these items get released on a thursday…and I imagine like all DVD/Blu Ray/Books/CD`s a pre order will be despatched to arrive on the Monday 24th or possibly the Saturday before .

    • doctorpond393

      October 29th, 2014 - 4:47pm

      The soundtracks aren’t normally released on a Thursday. At least, the series 7 & The Doctor, The Widow and The Wardrobe/The Snowmen ones weren’t. They were both released on a Monday.

  • James Woods

    October 28th, 2014 - 8:53pm

    Excellent! Been waiting for this for a long time!

    Although I really doubt it will happen at some point I would like to see the track from the end of Name of the Doctor (where matt says “He’s the one who broke the promise)


    October 28th, 2014 - 8:08pm

    christmas present!

      Sounds a bit shady doesn’t it

  • Haza14

    October 28th, 2014 - 8:00pm

    Great news! Been hoping they would do this. Hopefully a two disc series 8 soundtrack will follow. Can’t wait for more Murray Gold!

    October 28th, 2014 - 7:40pm

    They took their time didn’t they? Must be a reason…anyone know what it is? Also what’s with the strange As in tracks 3, 19 and 22? ❓

    • booboo

      October 28th, 2014 - 7:43pm

      changed that, it’s the coding interpreting it as something else

    • Dalekparadigm2

      October 28th, 2014 - 7:46pm

      ultimate typos?

    • StetsonDoctor

      Ah…lol 😀

    I hope it does not take this long for the season 8 soundrack to come out.
