Annotated Track Listing
All three of these scores were recorded in stereo, though the programme was still being mixed and broadcast in mono audio at this time.
THE MYSTERIOUS PLANET
Black Light presented around half of the music used in The Mysterious Planet, with many cues appearing out of sequence. The following listing explains the source for each track, though as the Production as Broadcast paperwork is not available the original cue titles cannot be ascertained, and therefore the cue numbering is our own.
The opening music from Part One, slightly cut-down. A longer version was later included on the DVD Photo Gallery and The 50th Anniversary Collection suite.
Part One cue 8, starting from 0:14:51 and scoring scenes set in the underground station, Katryca's tribe and the futuristic Marb Station. Excerpts from this cue appeared on both the DVD Photo Gallery and the extended version of The 50th Anniversary Collection suite.
Part Two cues 1 (0:10) & 2 (0:34), reprising the Part One cliff-hanger.
Part Two cue 15 from 0:42:38: the Doctor escapes from Drathro and the L1 machine. In the finished programme this cue continued into:
Part Two cue 15 (continued): Glitz, Dibber and Peri overpower their guards and escape. This later featured on the DVD Photo Gallery suite.
Katryca promises to provide Peri with some excellent husbands, from Part Two 0:28:02 (0:24), and later holds the Doctor prisoner as the L1 machine continues to pursue him, from Part Three 0:56:40 (1:12).
A continuation of the first courtroom scene. This leads into the beginning of the story proper, as the Doctor and Peri arrive on Ravalox.
The L1 machine trundles through the corridors in pursuit of the Doctor, from Part Two 0:44:05.
The Part Two cliff-hanger (01:38) and the continuation of the same scene in Part Three (0:26). Excerpts from this track appeared on both the DVD Photo Gallery and The 50th Anniversary Collection suite.
Katryca and the tribe set off to plunder the Immortal's castle, leaving the Doctor unguarded and ready to be rescued by Peri. Part Three cue 12 from 1:04:36.
Peri and the Doctor discover that Ravalox is Earth in the far future, from Part One 0:12:47.
The tribe break into the castle and are faced by Drathro, in the second cue from Part Four. An excerpt later featured on the DVD Photo Gallery.
The opening of Part Four, as Merdeen shoots and kills Grell. In the finished episode this music segued out of the cliff-hanger reprise. The cue later appeared in the extended version of The 50th Anniversary Collection suite.
Two consequetive cues from the climax of the story (Part Four cues 10 & 11), starting from 1:28:39. The second cue is slightly edited.
THE ULTIMATE FOE
The album presented just over half of the music from The Ultimate Foe (14 out of 25 minutes' material). The cue numbering below is our own, with reference to the completed episodes.
Part Thirteen cue 6, from 9:40, as the Master explains that the High Council had manipulated the trial - and that the Valeyard was better known as the Doctor. This later appeared in the 50th Anniversary suite.
Part Thirteen cue 7, as the Doctor and Glitz arrive in the Edwardian-themed Matrix. The two halves of this cue were presented separately on cassette, though played simultaneously on-screen. An excerpt from the second-half was later included in the Photo Gallery suite.
THE ULTIMATE FOE
Part Thirteen cue 8, as the Valeyard's imaginary persona is revealed; and cue 13, as the Doctor signs away his remaining lives. The sting at the end of cue 8 was presented separately on Black Light, though played simultaneously with the end of the first Fantasy Factory melody in the finished episode. 'The Fantasy Factory' later appeared on the Photo Gallery suite, and 'Popplewick' was included in the 50th Anniversary suite, slightly edited.
The cliffhanger to Part Thirteen and the reprise from Part Fourteen. Both parts later appeared on the Photo Gallery suite, though the twinkly motif at the end was separated out of the mix and presented on its own. The same mix of 'Part 2' (without the overdub) featured in the 50th Anniversary suite.
Part Fourteen cues 5 and 7. Both later appeared in the Photo Gallery suite.
Part Fourteen cue 12, as the Doctor accepts the court's verdict and is taken away to face his execution... all within the confines of the Matrix. Excerpts later appeared in both the Photo Gallery and 50th Anniversary suites.
Part Fourteen cues 19 and 21, the latter featuring the unmasking of Mr Popplewick. 'Glitz's Trick' was edited here, with only the first half of the cue appearing; the complete cue later appeared in the Photo Gallery suite, with a different excerpt (the second half) in the 50th Anniversary suite.
Part Fourteen cues 22, 23, 24, 26 and 27, beginning from 46:41. The final section later appeared in the 50th Anniversary suite.
The end of the story, as the Doctor departs and the Valeyard reveals his new disguise... This later appeared in the 50th Anniversary suite.
The following listing is more detailed, as we have been able to reference the Production as Broadcast paperwork (available from the BBC website) and the complete score, as presented on the DVD isolated soundtrack. The cue numbering is therefore accurate and taken from the PasB listings.
1m1 (0:25) & 1m2 (0:55). Both cues were later used in The 50th Anniversary Collection suite (Silva Screen, 2013/14).
1m4 (0:06), 1m5 (0:53), 1m7 (0:29)
1m8 (0:50, including 8 seconds of unused material at the start) & 1m9 (0:29). 1m9 was included in The 50th Anniversary Collection suite.
1m11 (0:43) & 2m2 (01:15). The first cue was also used in the Part Two reprise. 2m2 was used in The 50th Anniversary Collection suite.
2m6 (0:30) & 2m7 (0:32). 2m6 appeared on The 50th Anniversary Collection.
2m9 (01:26) & 2m12 (0:27)
2m18 (0:36), the cliffhanger cue to Part Two; this was also used in the Part Three reprise.
3m6 (0:34), 3m7 (0:34), 3m8 (0:19)
3m10 (0:55) & 3m13 (0:41). 3m10 was later used in The 50th Anniversary Collection suite.
