Doctor Who - The 50th Anniversary Collection

Disc Five draws upon a familiar selection of music suites from the Fifth Doctor stories, first heard on LP in 1983/5 and re-released numerous times by Silva Screen in the early 1990s. The compiler of the original records, Dick Mills, explained his single suites approach in his sleeve note to Doctor Who - The Music II:
For this new compilation, Mark Ayres produced complimentary suites for some of the stories that weren't represented originally, with music for Black Orchid proving especially welcome as it was mostly unreleased.

Highlights include:
  • Previously unreleased music from Black Orchid (approx 2:19)
  • New music suites for Mawdryn Undead, Frontios and The Caves of Androzani
  • The first remastering of the famous suites from Doctor Who - The Music and Doctor Who - The Music II since 1992
Further listening:
  • Soundtrack album for The Caves of Androzani, plus extensive highlights from Castrovalva and Mawdryn Undead on The Corridor of Eternity
  • Isolated DVD soundtracks for 16 stories (all Fifth Doctor episodes except Four to Doomsday, Black Orchid and Time-Flight), with Photo Gallery suites for the rest
  • Additional stereo music from Earthshock on Doctor Who - The Music
  • Sound effects on 30 Years and the DVD Photo Galleries

CASTROVALVA (1982) - Music by Paddy Kingsland (BBC Radiophonic Workshop)
1.
“The Moment Has Been Prepared For” (1:03)
5Z 1m1. Highlights from the Castrovalva score had been released on cassette in 1990 on The Corridor of Eternity, a limited release produced and distributed by the Doctor Who Appreciate Society, with this track included. The complete 40-minute mono score was later released as an isolated soundtrack on the DVD in 2007, with the end of this cue segued into the opening titles.

This music underscored the first pre-titles scene in Doctor Who, one of only five in the Classic Series; music from three of the others (for Time and the Rani, Remembrance of the Daleks and the Television Movie) are also in this collection.

Doctor Who (1980 - Full Version) (2:41)
Realised by Peter Howell (BBC Radiophonic Workshop)
This was the 7" single version of the theme, first released with a Tom Baker cover in October 1980, then re-issued with Peter Davison and Colin Baker covers in 1982 and 1984 respectively. Each version had 'The Astronauts' by Peter Howell on the B-side. The full-length theme first appeared on CD on The 25th Anniversary Album in 1988 and was newly remastered on Volume 2: New Beginnings, track 49.

A brand new stereo remix (featuring extra and extended material) was presented on the Castrovalva DVD in 2007, with a 5.1 remix following on Four to Doomsday in 2008; the same mix was deconstructed and played live by the Radiophonic Workshop at the Roundhouse in 2009, and on tour 2013-14.

Volume 1, track 17; the original album had the track segued with the preceding/following tracks, so the version presented here was faded-in and out to avoid these overlaps, shortening it by 4 seconds. The complete 36-minute mono score was later released on DVD in 2011.

Music from The Visitation (1982) was not included here. Paddy Kingsland's 35-minute score was presented as an isolated soundtrack on DVD in 2004/2013, and the composer was interviewed for a special featurette on the same disc.

The complete soundtrack only runs for 12 minutes, meaning that 25% of it is released here; much of the soundtrack to the story is provided by 1920s dance records within the narrative itself.
