Doctor Who Soundtrack Ghost Light (Double LP)

Mark Ayres’ dark and mysterious synth score to Ghost Light, Marc Platt’s 3-part TV series with Sylvester McCoy as the Seventh Doctor, will be released on 180g DLP vinyl for the first time.


“This newly-remastered release presents the score in story order and is compiled from new transfers of the original analogue stereo master tapes. Consecutive cues have been combined into longer tracks. It is a particular delight to hear this music on vinyl. It was some of the last work I mixed to analogue 1/4” tape before digital took over, and suits the medium well. It also allows me to dedicate a side to each episode, keeping the cliff-hangers and reprises intact… plus the original demo version of Episode 1 on side 4.”

    I’ll probably be shot for this, but for me, the McCoy era has the greatest soundtracks of ANY Who era – the incidental music to Happiness Patrol, Greatest Show, Curse of Fenric and Survival are very memorable and certainly enhance the atmosphere of the stories.

      Yes, it is very good, I particularly like the “Somewhere else, the tea’s getting cold” theme at the end of Survival.
