Doctor Who is a significant part of British popular culture, and elsewhere it has become a cult television favorite. The program originally ran from 1963 to 1989.

After an unsuccessful attempt to revive regular production in 1996 with a backdoor pilot in the form of a television film, the show was relaunched in 2005 by Russell T Davies who was showrunner and head writer for the first five years of its revival, produced in-house by BBC Wales in Cardiff.

Twelve actors have headlined the series as the Doctor. The transition from one actor to another, and the differing approach to the role that they bring, is written into the plot of the show as regeneration into a new incarnation, a life process of Time Lords through which the character of the Doctor takes on a new body and, to some extent, new personality, which occurs after sustaining injury which would be fatal to most other species.

While each actor’s portrayal differs, they are all intended to be aspects of the same character, and form part of the same storyline. The time-travelling nature of the plot means that on occasion, story arcs have involved different Doctors meeting each other. Peter Capaldi took on the role after Matt Smith’s exit in the 2013 Christmas special, “The Time of the Doctor”. Murray Gold has been composing music for the series since 2005.

    If most people have all the soundtracks why would they buy this not even done by the original orchestra.

    If the cover says 1996-2006, why are most of the tracks from post-2006?

      Yeah, to be honest, this seems like a fairly dodgy album. Most of the orchestration sounds like it’s been done on a midi keyboard.

      I guess because this is just Vol.1?
      I think there will come out more?
