    Have to admit I wasn’t overly keen on the 80’s who music. I preferred Dudley Simpson’s scores and the earlier music over the Synythiser heavy 80’s era. I loved the Paul mcgann music purely because it sounded “full” if people know what I mean. And of course the new who era music has been great. Now, that all said I’m very happy for people who like this style of music as I’m sure they will treasure this album. I’ll probably get the sun makers album if I have the funds but I hope people who buy this one love it and get more from the 80’s era.

      Agree with a lot of this, but think Murray Gold’s scores soon became far too bombastic, and was never too keen on his arrangement of the theme music post-Tennant. Have to say I am really enjoying the incidental music so far from Jodie’s era, and probably my favourite version of the theme music since the show returned.

      Oh I agree Murray’s music could be a bit overblown but I still like it. Loving Jodie’s music.

      The 80s OST’s do tend to include the SFX officially which is a great deal, i think dudley simpson himself is a great composer but the only scores i remember from him is genesis of the daleks and the minds of evil. Which sadly got wiped and the main reason why the 80s scores get more releases it because they are the only ones that survived throughout the series.

      Maybe except Mindwarp which i heard is lost forever, i am not too fond of murray gold music i feel like he tries so hard to be like john williams and i often prefer the dudley orchestra over his work.

      I like earlier scores from the mid 2000s to early 2010s, but afterwards the scores get less interesting to me mainly they followed a lot of the cliche and trophy scores that we tend to hear in movies.

      We just wait and see for more future release, like i said the synthesizer style is not for everyone which i gladly respect.

    Interesting choices with these. ‘The Visitation’ in particular. Would love to see releases of “Logopolis” and “Castrovalva” next…

      Suprised to see this as I thought ‘The Five Doctors’ was the Peter Davison release…

      They don’t just do one release for each Doctor.
      Also, The Caves of Androzani was released years ago.

      I’m sure in this present run they were doing one for each classic Doctor which the LP versions made a tardis design on the spines. So hence I thought five doctors was Davisons. I know they have done other releases, I have them all, I was meaning this present run…

      A part of me suspects that the reason Five has two releases is because the TV Movie soundtrack is a bit of a different kettle of fish.

    This soundtrack looks fun, though I was personally hoping for something like a music release of ‘The Trial Of A Time Lord’ with the re-recorded score for ‘Mindwarp’. Ah well, maybe next time.

      There is still hope as the sixth Dr release is still to come…

    I love the classic incidental stuff, who did the artwork for the covers?

      I prefer the cover design for this release and ‘The Sun Makers’ to what we got for ‘The Five Doctors’ soundtrack.

      Mark Ayres confirmed on Twitter that Clayton Hickman designed the covers for these two releases
