Murray Gold interview: Doctor Who music, Matt Smith, 12th Doctor, Regeneration & more…
Composer Murray Gold has been one of the very few constants since the return of Doctor Who in 2005. His work on the world’s greatest show has been sublime, constantly delivering memorable themes, beautiful soundscapes and heartbreaking melodies each week. I caught up with Murray on the eve of his return to the Royal Albert Hall for the Doctor Who Proms and chatted all things Who, from series one to series eight…
What were your feelings when you hear Matt was leaving Doctor Who?
I thought, ‘Well that means a lot of work!’ [Laughs] I thought, ‘Oh my god, are we really not going to hear I Am The Doctor again?’ [Laughs] I instantly began to think. ‘Could we use it for the next one as well?’ Does it maybe capture something eternally Doctorish, does it have to not be there ever again until Matt appears again, as hopefully one day he will, on some new version of the multi-Doctor story. Are we never going to hear I Am The Doctor again until the 60th? [Laughs]
If we don’t, then what follows it has to be stronger. I think that, in a way, I Am The Doctor is stronger than the themes Christopher Eccleston and David Tennant had. So, I was thinking those thoughts. [Laughs]

“And do one more thing for me. There’s a little girl waiting in a garden. She’s going to wait a long while, so she’s going to need a lot of hope. Go to her. Tell her a story. Tell her that if she’s patient, the days are coming which she’ll never forget. Tell her she’ll go to sea and fight pirates, she’ll fall in love with a man who’ll wait two thousand years to keep her safe. Tell her she’ll give hope to the greatest painter who ever lived, and save a whale in outer space.
Tell her, this is the story of Amelia Pond. And this is how it ends.”
As a composer I don’t have a protective shield against what’s happening. It goes right into me and sort of empathetic overdrive. I love this show, I mean it just puts you on the rack. One minute you’re flying around London, next minute you’re on some kind of go-kart in space, and then it just comes down to two people saying goodbye, quite often, and it’s tragic. It kills me every time, so yeah I really live that and it’s a great show to work on. (x)
We visited “Doctor Who" composer Murray Gold in his New York studio to discuss his work on the series since it was relaunched in 2005 under producer Russel T. Davies and Doctor Christopher Eccleston. Gold has since worked on every season of the show, changing the music to fit the personalities of each new Doctor.
Hellooooooo Tumblrhenge!! It’s us again!
The Doctor Who Fan Orchestra are proud to present their seventh collaboration: “Amy’s Suite”.
The suite contains the following themes: “Little Amy”, “The Blush of Love”, “Amy’s Theme”, “Together” and “Amy Reprise (Two Years)” — all composed by Murray Gold. The latter two themes (from “The Angels Take Manhattan” and “The Doctor, the Widow and the Wardrobe”) have not yet been officially released on a soundtrack, and have therefore been given unofficial titles.
The Doctor Who Fan Orchestra invites musical fans of Doctor Who to take part in an online collaborative celebration of Murray Gold’s music. Participants submitted recordings for this work from March to April 2013.
This final mix includes 444 submissions from 292 individual participants, ranging in age from 10 to 81, and who are located in at least 26 different countries across the world.
The DWFO will take a short break, returning later in 2013 with the “50th Anniversary Suite”. We will advertise extensively nearer the time.
