The Trial of a Time Lord version certainly sounded weird. I'll leave it at that.

I just hope it's a better version of the theme, more akin to the RTD era version (especially season 4) - the Moff/Smith era theme is fucking awful, down there with the McCoy era theme - hell, down there with the twangy alternate 3rd Doctor theme from Australia...
I'd like to hear something akin to the original (or even the original), or at least the Series 1-3 version. I can't stand the Series 4 arrangement. When Partners in Crime went out, I actually adjusted the sound settings on my TV, since the bassline was so buried in the mix I assumed it had to be a mistake.

Re: It's not just a new control room...

There does seem to be a trend that each new version from Murray Gold seems to make the stuff from Ron Grainer's original music less noticeable, and the stuff Gold's added as orchestration more prominent.

I'm a fan of early Tom Baker ones, so I have to disagree here. To me, it's second only to the original theme, where the music beats everything else and it just looks genuinely otherworldly.

They're usually influenced by what is big at the time (80s = synthesizer, etc).

So I'm expecting Justin Beiber to sing it.

It could be worse. They could have John Barroman sing it.

Actually if they hire Burial to do the dubstep version, that's fine with me.

Can't wait to hear and see it - it's kind of all like a mini relaunch.

I love the McCoy theme tune but then that was my first experience with Who.

How about this version for the new one:

That's better than the current version.

Mind you, Bill Bailey's Belgian Jazz version, Docteur Qui, is better than the current one!

It's funnier but it would be a terrible theme tune.
