Doctor Who - The 50th Anniversary Collection

Approx 35 minutes of Disc Four was previously unreleased - an incredible 46% - making it by far the most interesting disc for those seeking new material. The majority of this material was recently-unearthed music by Dudley Simpson, whose tapes were thought to be lost for good. Approx 16 minutes of this material was first presented on the four-disc set.

Highlights include:
  • Previously unreleased music by Dudley Simpson from Robot (1:15), The Android Invasion (approx 7:11, TBC), The Sun Makers (11:22) and The Invasion of Time (5:36), and by Cary Blyton from Revenge of the Cybermen (approx 6:00, TBC)
  • Previously unreleased sound effect, 'Movellan Runs Down' (Destiny of the Daleks)
  • Sound effects extended from previous releases: 'The Planet Karn' (The Brain of Morbius), 'The Mandragora Helix' (The Masque of Mandragora), 'Inside the Doctor's Mind' (The Invisible Enemy), 'Nova Device Countdown and Explosion' (Destiny of the Daleks), 'Pretty Planet' (Nightmare of Eden)
  • Newly edited material throughout

All tracks Mono except 6-9, 12-15, 25-27, 29, 30, 36 electronically processed Stereo, 28, 31-34 Stereo
Doctor Who Opening Title Theme (0:44)
Realised by Delia Derbyshire (BBC Radiophonic Workshop)
The 1970 opening titles, with the long version of the repeat-to-fade ending, was first released in stereo on 30 Years track 14, titled 'Signature Tune - A New Beginning' (wrongly attributed to the Second Doctor, a mistake repeated on Music from Tomb of the Cybermen). As remastered by Ayres, a short version appeared on the Geoffrey Burgon soundtrack, Terror of the Zygons/The Seeds of Doom (faded out at 33 seconds, and treated with a stereo effect) and a longer version, with a stutter-start, was heard on Volume 2: New Beginnings (45 seconds). This was the first release of the clean-start, full-length, mono version of Ayres' new master.

ROBOT (1974) - Music by Dudley Simpson
Mysterious Robots (1:15)
Previously unreleased, with added sound effects from the story by Dick Mills. This track is in fact a rerecording of a cue from Robot made for the 'Doctor Who Library': a collection of 43 Dudley Simpson cues intended for use in foreign dubs of episodes from Seasons 12 and 13. The voice introducing each cue on the reel is revealed in Ayres' sleevenotes to be Paddy Kingsland, who collaborated with Simpson on these recordings in Brian Hodgson's studio, circa 1975.

The dating of the tape is slightly contentious, however; Andrew Pixley believes the cues were recorded specifically for French channel TF1 in the early 1980s. This is corroborated by a Dudley Simpson interview from 1988, where he recalled, "BBC Enterprises asked me into their offices for a chat about the sale of the early Tom Baker's to France. They couldn't lift the voices off from the music track (they had to redub all the dialogue into French you see) and so they'd got the filmed stuff but without the music track and they couldn't find a copy of my music anywhere so I've had to lay down a completely new score for them on tape which will go on with the French dialogue". (DWB issue 57, August 1988)

Nerva Beacon Infrastructure and T-Mat Couch (1:42)**
A version of these effects (first heard in The Ark in Space, and used again in Revenge of the Cybermen) had appeared on 30 Years, track 37 (as 'Wirrn in the Infrastructure', 1:05). This edit was first heard on Volume 2: New Beginnings, track 42, where it segued out of/into the preceding and following tracks ('Metebelis III Atmosphere' and 'The Planet Karn' respectively). Here, it fades in and out from silence.

The incidental music for this story was composed and conducted by Dudley Simpson, with electronic enhancements by Dick Mills at the Radiophonic Workshop. Although no tapes survive for this, or any of their Season Twelve episodes, in 1993 Silva Screen released an album of Simpson's music recreated on keyboards and vintage synthesisers by Doctor Who fan, Heathcliffe Blair. Tracks were presented from The Ark in Space, Genesis of the Daleks, Planet of Evil, Pyramids of Mars and The Brain of Morbius, and a selection of these tracks included on the compilation The Worlds of Doctor Who in 1994.

Styre's Scouting Machine (1:04)**
First released on Doctor Who - Sound Effects, side 1 track 4, with the subtitle '(Approach, Stop, Search, Depart)'.

REVENGE OF THE CYBERMEN (1975) – Music by Carey Blyton
Music from “Revenge of the Cybermen” (Extended Suite) (6:54)
Performed by Carey Blyton and Orchestra
For this serial Blyton chose a selection of unusual instruments for his 31-minute score. However, producer Philip Hinchcliffe felt that Blyton's music was unsuitably comical, and had Peter Howell of the Radiophonic Workshop add a minute of electronic music to Part Two and almost five minutes to Part Three. None of Howell's music appears in this suite, and there have been indications that it does not survive - such as the absence of an isolated music track on the DVD, the only one of Blyton's scores to be unreleased in this format. Only 20 minutes of music appeared in the finished episodes, suggesting that one-third of Blyton's score went unused.

Four minutes from the original soundtrack were featured on Carey Blyton's Film & Television Music series in 2003 (CD2, tracks 23-28), and some material was duplicated here. A shorter version of this new suite appeared on the four-disc set (repeated cues are marked with an asterix):

The first cue of the story, aka “Deep Space” on CD (though the Blyton CD version was treated with a long echo that was not used on-screen). This originally segued with the opening titles.
Harry moves to take the Time Ring as a memento, but it vanishes. The Doctor opens a door and a man falls out, dead.
The Doctor, Sarah and Harry explore the Nerva Beacon, finding it littered with dead bodies; aka “Cybermen!” on CD. The start of this cue was not used on-screen. This musical theme was incorporated into the sheet music version of “Deep Space”.
On the planet Voga, Vorus inspects a dead Vogan and orders his burial; aka “Vogans” on CD.
A Cybermat attacks Warner from behind, biting his neck before he can throw it off. The start was not used on-screen.
Kellman sends a message to the Cybership, in a variation of the Deep Space theme.
The Doctor fails to prevent the Cybermen from getting on board the Beacon, from Part Two.
The cliff-hanger to Part Two, repeated at the start of Part Three, as the Cybermen appear to kill the Doctor and declare that they have taken the Beacon.
The Cybermen march through the caves in Part Three at 1:00:45. This music is a short repeated section from the CD track, “Cybermen and Vogans fight in the underground caves: the Cybermen triumph”, which originally ran to 1:32; only this end section was used in the finished programme. This cue begins one second earlier on the four-disc version of the suite.
The Doctor climbs through the caves and causes a small avalanche, which kills Kellman. This cue also begins one second earlier on the four-disc version of the suite.
The cliff-hanger to Part Three, as Harry finds that the Doctor has been knocked out by the rock fall - and tries to remove the bomb attached to his chest.
On board the Beacon, Sarah overhears the Cybermen talking about the vaporisation of the planet.
Harry and the Doctor jump off a ridge over the Cybermen and try to stuff gold into the chest plates of the two Cybermen. The struggle goes badly and they have to escape.
Lester sees his chance and jumps down, opens the lock on his harness and blows himself up, killing the two Cybermen in the process.
The Cybermen are loading bombs onto the nose cone of the Beacon.
A Cyberman enters the crew quarters on the Beacon and is set upon by the Doctor's modified Cybermat.
Unused cue.

Selections from the score were re-arranged for Horn (or Saxhorn) & Piano in 1993, with sheet music published by AV Music ('Vogan Suite - Op. 101'), and a recording of this suite released on the 1999 CD Sherlock Holmes Meets Dr. Who.

TERROR OF THE ZYGONS (1975) – Music by Geoffrey Burgon
The Destruction of Charlie Rig (0:41)
A Landing in Scotland (1:22)
The Zygons Attack (0:49)
Monster on the Moor (3:27)
30 minutes of music from this story had been released on Ayres' Terror of the Zygons/The Seeds of Doom release in 2000, where these cues had appeared as tracks 2, 3, 6 & 11. They included some unused material - the end of 'The Destruction of Charlie Rig' and the start of 'A Landing in Scotland' were both cut from the programme, though they did appear in the 2013 'Directors' Cut' of Part One on DVD. The complete mono score (running to 38 minutes) was released as an isolated soundtrack on the same DVD, with a stereo version of the score on the 5.1 mix of the story.

THE ANDROID INVASION (1975) – Music by Dudley Simpson
Music from “The Android Invasion” Parts 3 & 4 (Extended Suite) (9:04)
This suite included the following cues, with some appearing on the shorter four-disc and two-disc suite (*):

The opening cue of Part Three, not including the cliff-hanger reprise (which may not survive, if recorded in the Part Two session): the android Sarah fires shots after the escaping Doctor, as Styggron and Chedaki watch events unfold on their monitor screen. This also appeared over the end titles of the DVD documentary.
The real Sarah awakes on the Kraal spaceship and cautiously looks for a way out. In the village, the Doctor observes androids in white spacesuits loading the 'villagers' onto a truck.
The Doctor and Sarah narrowly escape the explosion that destroys the village; but they are immediately captured by Crayford and the androids. This cue appeared on the DVD Photo Gallery, mixed with sound effects.
Having heard Crayford's explanation of the Kraal's invasion plans, the Doctor and Sarah wonder how they can warn Earth. In the laboratory, the android Harry handles the virus, intending to poison the prisoners... This cue appeared on the Photo Gallery, mixed with sound effects.
The Doctor is taken to the disorientation centre and tied to the table. Sarah, alone in her cell, pulls out a cable from the floor and prepares to create a diversion.
Sarah makes smoke rise from the floor of the cell, attracting the android guard - whom she short-circuits. She is horrified by the fallen man, but makes her escape.
Sarah helps the Doctor to escape and they run together to the rocket.
The cliff-hanger to Part Three, as the pair are crushed by G-force as the rocket takes off...
From Part Four, 1:22:07. Crayford is en route for Earth and jokes to the control room that he's expecting champagne on arrival. In the woods, Sarah finds the TARDIS - and the Doctor. Most of this cue appeared at the start of the DVD documentary.
As a capsule opens to reveal a robotic replica of Sarah, the real Sarah works out that the Doctor is a duplicate, and she runs off into the woods. This cue appeared on the Photo Gallery, mixed with sound effects.
From 1:31:45: as Crayford discovers the truth about his eye-patch, the two Doctors fight over the radar controls. The real Doctor succeeds in jamming the radar signal and the androids all freeze, lifeless. Four seconds from the middle were not used on-screen; the same longer version appeared on the Photo Gallery, mixed with sound effects.
Styggron fights off Crayford and the Doctor, but accidentally infects himself with the virus. The Doctor is shot... but he is revealed to be the android duplicate.
The adventure over, Sarah and the Doctor walk back to the TARDIS...
... and depart!

In total around 22 minutes of music had been composed for this serial, with Dudley Simpson conducting the five musicians involved across two recording sessions: one for Parts One and Two, and another for Three and Four. Approximately three minutes of music from the same two episodes had been included on the DVD Photo Gallery in 2012, mixed with sound effects, and most of this music was included here. (Roughly 35 seconds of music remains exclusive to the Photo Gallery, and a further 1:40 from these episodes is still to be released.)

The Planet Karn (1:48)**
First heard on Volume 2: New Beginnings, track 43, where it segued out of/into the preceding and following tracks ('Nerva Beacon Infrastructure & T-Mat Couch' and 'The Shrine of the Sisterhood of Karn' respectively). The track as it appeared here was longer by three seconds at the start, and four seconds at the end, allowing for a slow fade in/out.

Dudley Simpson was particularly pleased with his music from Season Thirteen, citing Pyramids of Mars as one of his favourite scores; when the Television and Film School asked him to give a lecture, he arranged to have an undubbed version of The Brain of Morbius made available to demonstrate his work.

THE SEEDS OF DOOM (1976) – Music by Geoffrey Burgon
Antarctica: The First Pod (2:19)
Harrison Chase (0:40)
The Hymn of the Plants (0:49)
Get Dunbar! / Krynoid on the Loose (2:53)
As with Terror of the Zygons, director Douglas Camfield hired composer Geoffrey Burgon for this story in preference to Dudley Simpson. Burgon contributed around 64 minutes' of music for this, his second and final Doctor Who, of which 46 minutes were released on the Terror of the Zygons/The Seeds of Doom CD with a subtle stereo effect. The complete score was released as an isolated soundtrack on the DVD in 2010.

These tracks had appeared as tracks 19, 21, 30 & 36 on the soundtrack album, with 'The Hymn of the Plants' sharing a track with a cue entitled 'Floriana Requiem'.

Dudley Simpson composed all the programme's incidental music for the next four years (Seasons Fourteen, Fifteen, Sixteen and Seventeen), turning down other work to ensure that he was free for the series. Very few of the tapes from these sessions are known to have survived, and the 50th Collection presents suites from what we might presume to be the only existing recordings.

The Mandragora Helix (1:26)**
A version of this effect (titled 'Void') had first appeared on 30 Years track 38, where it ran to 1:11 and was treated with a stereo effect. The original mono version later appeared on Volume 2: New Beginnings track 45, though it only ran to 46 seconds and segued out of/into the preceding and following tracks ('Kraal Disorientation Chamber' and 'Atomic Reactor Runs Wild' respectively). The version here was longer by six seconds at the start and 34 at the end, and faded in/out from silence.

Inside the Doctor's Mind (1:52)**
A short version appeared on Doctor Who - Sound Effects, side 2 track 8 (as 'Inside Dr. Who´s Mind', 1:15).

THE SUN MAKERS (1977) – Music by Dudley Simpson
Music from “The Sun Makers” (11:22)
Previously unreleased. Ayres confirmed in the sleevenotes and in his Radio Free Skaro interview that the entire score survives.

The opening cue from Part One, as a downcast young man paces nervously in a quiet corridor. A woman opens a portal and addresses Citizen Cordo to congratulate him on his father's death.
Cordo is brought into an opulent office and greeted by a pompous, overdressed official - the Gatherer - to whom Cordo owes death taxes.
The taxes have been raised, and a dejected Cordo leaves the Gatherer's office. Aboard the TARDIS, the Doctor is playing chess with K9 - and losing.
The Doctor and Leela emerge from the TARDIS to find themselves on top of an enormous concrete building.
Meeting Cordo, who is ready to jump to his death, the Doctor distracts him by offering a jelly baby and Leela pushes him away from the edge. Back in the Gatherer's office, Marn arrives to bring news of an illegal landing on the planet.
After an alarm sounds on the roof, the Doctor, Leela and Cordo run to hide.
They descend in a lift to the depths of the city.
They walk through the dark tunnels and are quickly ambushed, surrounded by a large group of dirty-looking men and women: the Others.
From Part Two, just after the cliff-hanger reprise: the Doctor collapses in the cash-dispenser cubicle as it fills with gas. Cordo hides as guards arrive to carry the Doctor's body away.
The Doctor is straight-jacketed in the Correction Centre. He jumps down from his couch.
Later in the episode, Marn arrives and orders the Doctor released, telling him the Gatherer wishes to meet him. They won't let Bisham go but the Doctor leaves his fellow prisoner a bag of sweets. Elsewhere, Leela, Cordo and K-9 advance on the Correction Center.
The cliff-hanger to Part Two, as a group of guards drive towards the escaping party of Leela, Cordo, Bisham and K9.
From Part Three: K9 blasts the guards, and the team attempt to drive their go-cart away. The first half only of this 0:49 cue.
In the middle of the episode, the Doctor directs the Others to go through the city and encourage resistance. The Gatherer visits the Collector, who wants to know why he released the Doctor.
The Collector plans to execute the captive Leela in a ploy to lure out the Doctor. Elsewhere in the city, the Doctor is busy recording footage of his walking up and down a corridor, while in the prison cell, Leela is tied to a wall as a guard arrives to gloat at her. Two seconds from the middle of this cue were extended on CD (from 7:28 in this suite).
From Part Four: the Doctor crawls through the Steamer undetected, and frees Leela before the streaming process can begin. The Others call him on his radio, blowing his cover.
The Doctor emerges from under the Collector's table, having tinkered with the computer system. Leela draws his attention to the company vault, which he begins to unlock.
The vault door opens, and the Doctor peers inside to find a hidden room. Leela goes first - and is electrocuted on entry.
Towards the end of the episode, with the revolution successful, the Collector returns to his office and is confronted by the Doctor.

Simpson's complete score ran to 25 minutes and was recorded by six musicians, including Tristram Fry on percussion, who notably struck railway tracks for scenes where Leela entered the 'steamer'. Leslie Pearson played the organ, which he had done on numerous Simpson scores previously; he and Simpson would often record on the organ at St. Gabriel's Church in Cricklewood, with some stories (such as The Deadly Assassin, 1976) featuring solo cues for this impressive instrument.

THE INVASION OF TIME (1978) – Music by Dudley Simpson
Music from “The Invasion of Time” Parts 3 and 4 (5:37)
Highlights from these episodes, presented in chronological story-order. The music here represents just over half of that composed for these two episodes.

Unusually for a Dudley Simpson score, the cue numbers are mentioned on the PasB paperwork for Part Six as “Links m61/m70”, and it is possible to reach this number if you count cues from the first episode onwards. I've therefore presented cue numbers for Parts Three and Four in the track listing below... though they are only estimates! This guestimate assumes that the cues are split as follows: Part One (links 1-12), Part Two (13-23, along with a repeat of m12 in the cliff-hanger reprise), Part Three (24-35), Part Four (36-50) and Part Five (51-60).

The second cue from Part Three, as the Doctor is alarmed to hear the shimmering forms of the Vardans asking for the Great Key. K9 travels down a corridor, making his way back to the TARDIS.
Leela resolves to accept the Doctor's command that she should be banished, and convinces Time Lady Rodan to join her. K9 continues on his journey and the Doctor evades the Time Lord guards as he slips into Borusa's office.
Leela and Rodan make their escape. The Doctor and Borusa discuss how she is likely to fare in the outer wilds of Gallifrey.
As the Doctor and Borusa leave their hidden office, K9 enters the TARDIS and plugs himself into the console.
The Vardans ask the Doctor to dismantle the quantum force field around Gallifrey, an act which could vaporize the entire planet.
The cliff-hanger to Part Three, as Andred confronts the Doctor and sentences him to death.
From Part Four. K9 helps Andred with his calculations, as the Doctor leads the Vardans down to the force field device and prepares to deactivate it.
The Doctor is relieved to find his adjustment has worked. He heads back to rejoin the others.
Andred and K9 encounter a guard and stun him. Leela and the warriors prepare to attack the citatel.
The Vardan's ship edges closer, and the three Vardans materialise fully on Gallifrey for the first time - revealing their human form. This cue was presented out of sequence in the suite.
Leela's group and the rest of the warriors separate, to form a dual attack. K9 and Andred reach the President's office - though the Doctor is elsewhere.
Leela and the Doctor are reunited.
The cliff-hanger to Part Four: the Sontarans invade Gallifrey!

As with The War Games and The Deadly Assassin, Simpson made use of organ music in association with the Time Lords; and the theme that Simpson had originated in Season Twelve for Tom Baker's Doctor (re-recorded by Heathcliff Blair for the Pyramids of Mars CD) was used for scenes in Part Five. As with The Android Invasion suite, it's likely that the music for these two episodes was recorded in one session, and hence survives when the scores for Parts One, Two, Five and Six do not.

Movellan Runs Down (2:01)**
Previously unreleased.

Nova Device Countdown and Explosion (0:28)**
A short version had been released on Volume 2: New Beginnings, track 46 (0:12).

No music tapes from Season Seventeen have been found, though a memorable excerpt from Dudley Simpson's City of Death score was arranged by Mark Ayres and Ben Foster for inclusion in the 2013 Doctor Who Prom and 2014/15 Symphonic Spectacular tours.

Pretty Planet (0:33)**
Previously released included on the DVD Photo Gallery, where it was mixed with stock stock jungle effects. These jungle sounds had appeared numerous times before in Doctor Who, dating all the way back to Mission to the Unknown (1965). Continues into:

Doctor Who Closing Titles (40" Version) (0:41)
Realised by Delia Derbyshire (BBC Radiophonic Workshop)
First heard on Volume 1: The Early Years, track 76. This short edit of the theme was not actually used on television during the fourth Doctor's era; its only contemporary use was on the Genesis of the Daleks LP in 1979.

The final story of Season Seventeen, Shada, was abandoned due to industrial action at the BBC. Dudley Simpson had already started composing music for the serial, though it would be over thirteen years before the story was ready for music, for a special version assembled for BBC Video. Seventh Doctor composer Keff McCulloch composed a new score, sampling conventional instruments in a bid to create a Simpson-style score, and five minutes of his music was featured on the DVD Photo Gallery in 2013.

Doctor Who 1980 (Opening Titles) (0:36)
Realised by Peter Howell (BBC Radiophonic Workshop)
For Season Eighteen the Radiophonic Workshop was asked to provide modern electronic music for the entire series, replacing Dudley Simpson and his conventional instruments. Their new interpretation of the title music was first released on Doctor Who at the BBC Radiophonic Workshop Volume 3: The Leisure Hive in 2002, though the full-length version of the theme had been available as a 7" single since 1980.

THE LEISURE HIVE (1980) - Music by Peter Howell (BBC Radiophonic Workshop)
Into Argolis (1:44)
This track had first appeared on Volume 3: The Leisure Hive, track 3, a disc which presented the complete 50-minute Leisure Hive score with a subtle stereo enhancement (tracks 2-19). On that CD, 'Into Argolis' ran for 2:36 and featured a second cue (running to 51 seconds) after the point at which this track cut out. The complete mono score had also been released as an isolated soundtrack on the DVD in 2004, differing only slightly from the CD (where a sound effect had been added during one track), and the same DVD included a 5.1 mix of the story that included a genuine stereo version of the music.

The second half of this cue had been part of 'The Leisure Hive' suite, mixed into stereo, and segued with other music and effects from the story. The suite was first released on BBC Records' Space Invaded LP in 1982, featured on Doctor Who - The Music, side 1 track 9, and was mastered for CD on Earthshock: Classic Music... Volume 1, track 11, in 1992.

Earth Shuttle Arrives (1:21)
First released on Volume 3: The Leisure Hive, track 5, with another cue included on the same track ('His Time Has Come').

MEGLOS (1980)
The Deons (1:27) Music by Paddy Kingsland (BBC Radiophonic Workshop)
Meglos (1:31) Music by Peter Howell (BBC Radiophonic Workshop)
First released on Doctor Who at the BBC Radiophonic Workshop Volume 4: Meglos and Full Circle, tracks 3 and 12. This album presented 40 minutes from the soundtrack mixed into stereo (tracks 2-20), and the complete 50-minute mono score was presented on DVD in 2011.

The cue 'Meglos' was featured in its entirety on Doctor Who - The Music, side 1 track 3, mixed into stereo. That suite opened with a ten-second sound effect, and was first mastered for CD on Earthshock: Classic Music... Volume 1, track 3.

FULL CIRCLE (1980) – Music by Paddy Kingsland (BBC Radiophonic Workshop)
Summons to Gallifrey (1:21)
First released on Volume 4: Meglos and Full Circle, track 21. This was a shorter version, missing a five-second cue from the start of the original CD track. The album had presented 40 minutes from the soundtrack mixed into stereo (tracks 21-45); the DVD release in 2009 featured the complete 50 minute mono score.

K9 on a Mission (0:35)
This track was a shorter edit of Volume 4: Meglos and Full Circle, track 30, 'K9 on a Mission/Third Decider', featuring the first and last cues and omitting approximately 44 seconds from the middle of the original track. It segues into the following track.

Music from State of Decay was not included in this collection. Paddy Kingsland's 49-minute score was featured as an isolated soundtrack on the 2009 DVD.

WARRIORS' GATE (1980) – Music by Peter Howell (BBC Radiophonic Workshop)
Banqueting Music (1:21)
First released on Doctor Who - The Music, side 2 track 4, and first mastered for CD on Earthshock: Classic Music... Volume 1, track 16. This version segues with the preceding track (instead of starting from silence) and fades to silence (instead of segueing into the following track, as on the original album). The Banqueting Music was featured throughout the DVD isolated soundtrack from 2009, which presented the complete 40-minute mono score to the story.

THE KEEPER OF TRAKEN (1981) – Music by Roger Limb (BBC Radiophonic Workshop)
Nyssa’s Theme (0:42)
Kassia's Wedding Music (0:48)
The Threat of Melkur (0:54)
First heard in stereo on Doctor Who - The Music, side 1, tracks 4-6, and first mastered for CD on Earthshock: Classic Music... Volume 1, tracks 6-8; here they segue together rather closer than they did on their original releases. The complete mono score, running to 33 minutes, had been released as an isolated soundtrack on the DVD in 2007.

LOGOPOLIS (1981) – Music by Paddy Kingsland (BBC Radiophonic Workshop)
TARDIS Interior (Flying, Landing Beep, Stationary, Cloister Bell) (1:29)**
This suite of sound effects was previously unreleased, though this version of the TARDIS stationary effect had first been presented on Doctor Who - Sound Effects and the other effects were included (with stereo enhancement) on 30 Years: 'TARDIS Landing Bleep' (track 55, 0:08) and 'Cloister Bell' (track 55, 1:06). Continues into:

It’s The End... (3:18)
This stereo suite brought together the final three cues of Part Four, first heard on the DVD isolated soundtrack in 2007.

Episode Four 5V "Logopolis" (possibly cue 22, judging by our numbering, though the PasB paperwork does not detail the individual cues), starting from 1:33:25. The Doctor hangs from the gantry and recalls old enemies and companions. He falls...
Beneath the radio telescope, the Doctor's companions gather around him, from 1:35:52.
The Watcher appears and the Doctor regenerates, from 1:36:39. This continued into the Closing Titles on the finished programme and the DVD isolated soundtrack, and does so here, too.

A CD featuring Paddy Kingsland's music for Logopolis and Castrovalva had been rumoured to be on Silva Screen's list of future projects in the mid-1990s. For a while, Ayres stated that he did not have the Logopolis tapes, but these were evidently located by the time he scored the 1999 Comic Relief sketch, The Curse of Fatal Death, which used some short cues from Logopolis within its soundtrack. The complete mono score was released as a DVD isolated soundtrack in 2007.

Doctor Who 1980 (Closing Titles) (1:17)
Realised by Peter Howell (BBC Radiophonic Workshop)
First heard as the closing tracks on Volume 3: The Leisure Hive and Volume 4: Meglos and Full Circle in 2002. All its previous appearances on CD started from silence, though here the theme segued from the end of the Logopolis suite.

The Radiophonic Workshop's incidental music for Season Eighteen was considered a success, and they continued to provide all the music for the programme for the next four years (Seasons Nineteen, Twenty, Twenty-One and Twenty-Two)...
