Re: New Composer and Theme for Series Five?
I think Gold is an incredibly talented composer. His music is very well-written, and it's a joy to listen to.
However, I think that his music, as good as it is, is equally very wrong for Doctor Who: His scores tend to dominate all other elements of the scenes, shrieking "DAAAA! DAAAAA! DAAAAA! I'M MURRAY GOLD! MURRAY GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOLD! CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS, MOTHERFUCKERS? LISTEN TO THIS! THIS SHIT IS GETTING REAL!"
Which is exactly what I want out of my Doctor Who
