Five-time BAFTA nominee Murray Gold recently confirmed that he is stepping down from composer duties on the show after 12 years of providing some of the finest music to be heard on contemporary television. Underlining the breadth of Gold’s composing skill across more than 160 minutes of music, this album is also the 12th Silva Screen release of his music since the 2005 Doctor Who revival...
