I enjoyed listening to the Prom this afternoon, don't know I'd I was that taken with the new piece for the 50th though.
That piece shows up how Murray Gold's stuff really isn't that good, at least as stand-alone music - it can get you through association with the scene it originally played over, but standing solo, as this piece does in advance of hearing it in context, it falls flat.
Of course, that's a point which can be made about a lot of incidental music: indeed, there's an argument that it should work like that, remaining secondary to the drama.
