Murray Gold: Musical Doctor Who Would Be “Fun”

Murray Gold has revealed that he’d be up for doing a musical episode of Doctor Who.

In an interview with CultBox, the long-standing composer admitted that an entirely music-based story, (in the style of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer episode “Once More with Feeling”), would be “fun” to do.

The Buffy episode in question featured a demon who compelled the series’ regulars to burst randomly into song, forcing them to reveal hidden truths. Despite being twelve years old, the story is fondly remembered for its originality and innovation, and has become a cult classic.

But whether David Banks’ Cyber Leader would ever be vulnerable to such satanic seduction is anyone’s guess. That said, Doctor Who is a show that is flexible enough to accommodate the quirkiest of plot devices, and a musical Twelfth Doctor outing would certainly be entertaining.

Get to it, Murray!
