Agreed. I've never understood the hate for the McCoy theme. Maybe it's because I grew up on it (along with the Pertwee/Baker theme) but I've always found it rather awe-inspiring. I listened to it once on a moonless night while out in the Pacific Ocean this past summer. The stars were out in full force and the theme brought forth the sheer awe and majesty of the universe.

But maybe it's just me. *shrug*
Not just you. I loved it too.

The only theme arrangement I've never really cared for was Baker 2's "Trial' season.
Not keen on the McCoy theem - too squeeky and of its time. The big problem with the Trial theme is that it sounds great (though still not one of the best) on decent speakers, but on the little speakers built into the televisions most people were using back in 1986, it sounded like a wasp in a jar.
