Isn't the theme music fantastic?
 
I haven't posted my appreciation for this before but this is a brilliant them. Really mixes mystery and excitement.The previews wouldn't have been half as exciting without it.

The teaser could be the Doctor and Amy shopping in Scunthorpe and I'd still be excited when the music kicked in.

That one's okay, but I really love the opening theme.

Well, I really love the first part of it anyway. It's sad that the trademark tune that comes in for the second part kind of messes it up. But it's still my favorite of all the themes. That first part, though, really captures the whole dangerous/mysterious/adventurey aspect of the show.

^ Your link wouldn't open for me, but this is the one I think is brilliant. I'm not fond of the way it's presented in the actual show (whether it's the mix or those stupid lightning crackles, I dunno), but when I listen to this I truly appreciate its brilliance.

Yeah, I really dig Murray's new themes for this year. Nice to know he's still got it! (And we'd better see soundtracks for the Special and Series Five.)

I was talking to a friend who started watching the show with series five, and asked me, without prompting, if the Doctor had always had that kick-ass theme when he did something kick-ass. I had to tell him it was new, and that I'd actually been eagerly listening for Flavia's Theme to reappear at some point in series five. There were a couple of good moments, like when time slows down in The Eleventh Hour at the end of the Doctor's "Believe me for twenty minutes" speech. I guess it was for naught, however, and the regeneration scene was the last we'll hear of it.

Honestly, I was looking for any old music or themes coming back. I was thrilled when "The Greatest Story Never Told" was used for the recaps to the two-parters, and when "The Runaway Bride" played while the Doctor was fishing shrapnel out of the crack.

I was disappointed that Murray Gold never re-used "The Doctor's Theme" (aka "Flavia's Theme") from Series One through Four in Series Five. To me, the use of that leitmotif really helps express the idea of the Doctor as this ancient, mysterious being that's far more than he looks like on the outside, and also preserves a sense of the continuity of the character between regenerations.

But I do absolutely adore "The Eleventh Doctor's Theme," too! :)

What I find interesting is how this series five theme is a combination of the existing Doctor Who theme, with the opening theme from The Mummy: The Animated Series. But, since I'm probably the only one here who has even heard of the cartoon series, I'm sure nobody else is familiar with that theme.

I liked the use of the Cyberman theme in "The Pandorica Opens." I was always fond of that one.

I remember the show in the abstract, but I'm afraid I've blanked any specifics from my memory.

I don't usually notice the background music until someone calls it to my attention, but this season's has been so good it's even caught my attention. I like these tracks as well.

You can find programs that convert youtube files to mp3 files, or any other format for that matter. Google is your friend. :)

Love the S1-3 theme, and the S4 theme too. The S5 theme is nice.

The 11th Doctor theme kicked arse from the first time I heard it, the new main title theme took the season to grow on me but I do think its very good.
