The first of the 50th Anniversary sets to be released, this four-disc collection was released in December at a time when the contents of the eleven-disc set were still secret. The cover art had been seen on various merchandise items during the 50th year. It had also been used as a backdrop to the BFI screenings and Q&As held monthly throughout 2013, and was seen extensively throughout the official convention at the London ExCel Centre in November.

Contents Breakdown

Content by Doctor, in seconds
Content by Composer/Type, in seconds

All the Classic Doctors (1-7) were afforded a fairly equal amount of time: between 25-40 minutes each. There was significantly less from the Eighth Doctor (although the ten minutes from the Television Movie was the longest amount of music presented from any one story), and the Ninth was only represented by two short tracks (most likely because there would otherwise have been a disproportionate amount of Murray Gold music in the collection).

The three main contributors of Doctor Who's music - the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, freelance composers for the Classic Series, and Murray Gold - were very equally balanced. Of the freelancers, Dudley Simpson was the most represented (fittingly, given his long service to the programme), followed closely by Tristram Cary and Dominic Glynn.

Previously Unreleased Material

Previously Unreleased, any format
Previously Unreleased on CD
Previously Unreleased in this edit
e.g. music from Frontier In Space, never released anywhere previously
e.g. music from The Two Doctors, previously only released on DVD
e.g. music from The Mutants, presented here in a unique suite

For new material outright, the collection featured over 20 minutes that had never been released before: most significantly, music from The Claws of Axos (52 seconds), Frontier in Space (1:46), Revenge of the Cybermen (approx 4:32), The Android Invasion (approx five minutes) and The Invasion of Time (5:46), along with numerous excerpts from partially-released scores and extensions to previously-released sound effects. This amounted to 7% of the total playing time, which was co-incidentally exactly the same percentage as the two-disc version. In addition to this, a further 50 minutes' music was new to CD, having previously been released only on tape, vinyl or DVD.

Annotated Track Listing


Our detailed track listing below looks at the previous release history of each track, and the scoring of the stories that they come from. Judging by the eleven-disc track listing (released March 2014), the majority of tracks were lifted directly from the longer set - we will confirm for sure when it is released! - and our full and detailed track-by-track breakdown is written alongside that release. Our annotations below detail any changes or a unique track to this highlights collection. Follow @TME1998 for updates.

(19 & 21 seconds respectively); 'Next Time It'll Be For Real' was cut (51 seconds); and 'Face Off' was moved to earlier in the suite. There was also a longer version of the final chord, which was not heard on-screen and had never been released before.

This theme was presented as a Bonus Track on Disc Nine of the eleven-disc set; here, as on the two-disc set, it appeared in the main body of the album.

TIME AND THE RANI (1987) - Music by Keff McCulloch
11.
Music from “Time and the Rani” (1:38)
This short version appeared on both the four-disc and two-disc sets (the eleven-disc set featured an extended suite, which ran for an extra 2:24), and featured the following cues:
    1m3 (0:19)
    1m5 (0:34)
    1m10 (0:53)
Highlights from the score had been distributed among fans during the 90s, though the source of this bootleg was never clear (Keff McCulloch certainly distributed cassettes of his scores to enquiring fans during the 80s and 90s, so we imagine that he personally gave a copy of Time and the Rani to at least one collector). An eight-minute suite of music had also appeared over the Photo Gallery on the DVD release in 2010, of which around 30 seconds were duplicated here.

DELTA AND THE BANNERMEN (1987) - Music by Keff McCulloch
12.
“Here’s to the Future” (featuring The Lorells) (1:56)

DRAGONFIRE (1987) - Music by Dominic Glynn
13.
Music from “Dragonfire” (3:02)
This short version appeared on both the four-disc and two-disc sets. 17 minutes of stereo music from Dragonfire had first been released on the Black Light cassette in 1988, and the complete 26-minute score had been released (in mono) as an isolated soundtrack on the DVD in 2012. The suite featured:
    1m2 ('The Restricted Zone') (0:55)
    1m3 (0:23 excerpt from original 0:40 cue)
    1m10 ('The Sovereign') (0:55 excerpt from original 1:05 cue)
    3m10 ('Good Fortune, Nosferatu') (0:55)
All this material had also appeared in stereo over the DVD Photo Gallery, with some cues mixed with sound effects. The eleven-disc set featured an extended suite, which ran for an extra 4:09.

REMEMBRANCE OF THE DALEKS (1988) - Music by Keff McCulloch
14.
Music from “Remembrance of the Daleks” (5:32)
This short version appeared on both the four-disc and two-disc sets. Two tracks from this story had been featured on The 25th Anniversary Album in 1988, and the complete 37-minute score was released as an isolated soundtrack on the DVD in 2001. This new suite featured both of the 25th Anniversary tracks:
    2m8 ('Cemetery Chase') (presented here in its shorter, televised version, running to 1:50)
    3m3 (0:20)
    4m7 (0:50)
    4m17 ('A Child's Return') (2:32)
The eleven-disc set featured an extended suite, which ran for an extra 2:49.

THE GREATEST SHOW IN THE GALAXY (1988) - Music by Mark Ayres
15.
Music from “The Greatest Show in the Galaxy” (3:23)
This short version appeared on both the four-disc and two-disc sets. The complete 63-minute score to this story had been released on CD by Silva Screen in 1992, and was issued again as an isolated soundtrack on the DVD in 2012. This short suite joined the beginning of one track with the end of another:
    3m13 ('The Werewolf') (1:19)
    4m11 ('Playing for Time') (1:58)
The eleven-disc set featured an extended suite, which ran for an extra 3:44.

BATTLEFIELD (1989) - Music by Keff McCulloch
16.
Music from “Battlefield” (4:41)
This short version was exclusive to the four-disc set, and featured the following cues:
    1m14 (0:52)
    2m6 (2:00)
    3m5 (1:52)
The eleven-disc set featured an extended suite, which ran for an extra 43 seconds.

THE CURSE OF FENRIC (1989) - Music by Mark Ayres
17.
Music from “The Curse of Fenric” (6:33)
This short version appeared on both the four-disc and two-disc sets; the eleven-disc set featured an extended suite, running for an extra 57 seconds. The complete 68-minute score to this story had been released on CD by Silva Screen in 1991, and was issued again as an isolated soundtrack on the DVD in 2003. The individual tracks featured within this suite were:
    3m5 ('The Battle for St Judes') (excerpt, 2:50)
    4m9 ('Kathleen's Escape') (excerpt, 52 seconds)
    2m12 ('The Vicar and the Vampires') (excerpt, 1:29)
    4m13 ('The Final Battle') (excerpt, 1:27)
This new suite was very similar indeed to the nine-minute suite released on The Worlds of Doctor Who in 1994, with just a few cuts (the first 56 seconds, and 1:22 from the middle). The same excerpts from the first three tracks had also been collected together in the track 'Vampire's Attack!' on the US CD The Best of Doctor Who Volume 2 in 1994.

SURVIVAL (1989) - Music by Dominic Glynn
18.
Music from “Survival” (5:28)
This short version appeared on both the four-disc and two-disc sets (with the two-disc version including the next track, '...and somewhere else, the tea’s getting cold', as part of the suite). The cues included on the short version were as follows:
    1m1 (0:50)
    2m3b (0:59 excerpt from original 1:50 cue)
    2m6 (1:19 excerpt from original 1:23 cue, with slight edit to end)
    2m17b (1:22 excerpt from original 2:02 cue, first half only)
    3m15 (0:59)
The eleven-disc set featured an extended suite, which ran for an extra 2:57.

10:41 appeared on the 4CD collection, across six tracks (17% of the 11CD running time - though not all of these tracks were replicated on the eleven-disc set).

7:54 appeared on the 2CD collection, across one track (80% of the 4CD tracks, 13% of the 11CD material - though again not all of these tracks were replicated).

End Credits / “Doctor Who” Theme (0:49) - Music by Ron Grainer arranged by John Debney and John Sponsler
Tracks 20 & 22 were not taken from the eleven-disc set, but from the original US promo album. The opening music, 'Skaro', was arranged differently to its appearance in the film; the Doctor Who theme was shorter, and ended with a crescendo rather than a repeat-to-fade; and 'The Chase' was edited at several points, making it over a minute shorter. The two-disc set included the same versions; the eleven-disc set featured the film versions of each track.

Disc Four: 2005-2013



2:58 appeared on both the 4CD and 2CD collections, across two tracks (7% of the 11CD material).
THE NINTH DOCTOR - CHRISTOPHER ECCLESTON

Music by Murray Gold
All the music from the modern era of the show was taken directly from the soundtrack albums released by Silva Screen between 2006-2013; as Mark Ayres explained to Examiner when discussing the US two-disc version, Gold's "representation on the sets [was] predicated on the material we've been allowed to include." There was no previously unreleased material here, and no re-edits or shortening of tracks - though there would be on the eleven-disc set.

Interestingly, the music represented on the four-disc and two-disc sets had nearly all appeared in the Doctor Who live music events - such as the Cardiff 'Celebration' (2006), the BBC Proms (2008, 2010 & 2013) and the Australian Symphonic Spectaculars (2012 and 2014). They aimed to represent the most important music themes of the series, and in many cases were featured in multiple episodes.

THE END OF THE WORLD (2005)

Rose’s Theme (2:14)

20:13 appeared on the 2CD collection, across five tracks (47% of the 4CD tracks, 21% of the 11CD material - though again, not all tracks from the highlights collection appeared in the eleven-disc set).

GRIDLOCK (2007)
7.
All the Strange, Strange Creatures (4:08)
'All the Strange, Strange Creatures' appeared here exactly as it did on Doctor Who - Series 3, with the opening 'descent onto Earth' music preceding the main track. This was cut from the eleven-disc version of the track.

8.
Boe (3:42)

A CHRISTMAS CAROL (2010)
17.
Abigail’s Song (Silence is all you Know) (4:41)
Performed by Katherine Jenkins
The first pressing of the four-disc booklet mislabelled this track, and the following two, as being in a different order: 17: 'Melody Pond'; 18: 'The Wedding of River Song'; & 19: 'Abigail's Song'. Subsequent reprints corrected the mistake. Initial versions of the digital downloads were similarly mislabelled, and the files were swiftly corrected.

A GOOD MAN GOES TO WAR (2011)

This track was unique to the four-disc set, taken from the Series 6 soundtrack; it did not appear on the US version or the eleven-disc set.

23.

The BBC National Orchestra of Wales conducted by Ben Foster, featuring Crouch End Festival Chorus directed by David Temple.

Whether by good luck or foreknowledge, the collection ended with the stirring music that would ultimately score the Eleventh Doctor's regeneration in The Time of the Doctor.

Digital Editions - Track Titles
The track listings were simplified for the iTunes/Amazon digital releases, with story titles appended to the end of each title: e.g. March of the Cybermen (from “Earthshock”). Tracks that were not directly attributed to one story were appended with [from “Doctor Who”].

Any tracks titled 'Music from...' or with the story title included in the title were shortened, e.g. Music from “The Sea Devils” became: The Sea Devils (from “The Sea Devils”).
