It sounds like a cat being strangled over a Star Wars battle scene.

It's completely detached from the original Delia Derbyshire variations.

I suppose that figures, given the show is also plastic and hollow.

Hope it fucking changes - drastically.

It is the worst of all time and the clock face opening sequence is so on the nose it's painful.

Agreed on both counts. The only worse titles are the series 7b ones, which look like someone's thrown vomit over the camera.

Well Moffat did get the idea from a fan creation on youtube. It says it all really.

The only theme that counts.

It kind of reminds me Rimmers Hammond Organ music from Red Dwarf.

Rimmer's organ music has kitsch comedy value. The current DW theme tune is just horrific. I don't think I have seen anyone say they like.

What do people think of using the Orbital version they used on the DVD montages?

I'd take it over any of the recent dross.

I like the Orbital version but it's too minimalist to ever really get a chance. I liked it when DW was small and niche and had integrity. OK, it often fell on its face but these days it's designed to appeal to the masses in a very specific way. I would rather a glorious mess than a bland success.

The musical paradigm for the show is creatively bankrupt. Listen to the atmospheric music in Power of the Daleks with the weird creepy noises. That's how it should be, barely music.

The Cybermen's space adventure is much more recognisable as music but the sounds used evoke a real sense of strangeness. Though, it was really odd and out of place when they used it over the battle of Covent Garden in The Web of Fear.



DW has a rich musical history it can be proud of and now we just have Murray Gold. Sad Is he staying next season? I am not sure they would do anything that different.

We don't know yet. Chibnall's apparently getting rid of all of the crew too so one can only hope to fuck Gold's part of the clearout.

This, although the show does throw up some occasional gems: like the original cybermarch.

But maybe I'm weird. I like most of Derbyshire's experimental stuff.

This being one of my favourites, especially the way the crisp diction soots perfectly into th dark ambience.

The best theme we've had was that short 1 minute version for the Day of the Doctor trailer, and it wasnt even made by Murry Gold.

Oh good lord! Really?

Way too orchestral. The theme should be electronic and spooky, not something that sounds like it plopped out of the arse of a mediocre American composer.

I mean out of the ones we've had since relaunch.

I do like the War Doctor theme by BF. Yes, its trying to mimic Gold, but kinda works with the whole war theme.

The pitched down theme on the Ecclestone trailers is probably my favourite NuWho music.

The current Dr Who theme and titles are complete crap and totally uninspiring. IMO the best version of the theme tune was Peter Howell's with Sid Sutton's starfield followed by Dominic Glynn's and Delia Derbyshire's fantastic original. I remember as a kid one of the highlights of Dr Who was the music and titles. With the new series the new theme arrangement and titles are totally forgetful and uninspiring.

Not bad. Needs a few more layers to give it a bit of energy; some wooshes, swoops, sweeps and scary noises.

Now, I will say my absolute favourite music from the series is The Invasion soundtrack. It perfectly captures the mood and tone of the story.







However, some of the later stuff still sounds amazing like in the Seeds of Doom
