Doctor Who: An Adventure In Space and Time

Adventure in Space and Time Soundtrack in 2014

The music from the 50th anniversary docudrama, An Adventure in Space and Time, will be released in 2014.

The 90-minute special charted the origins of Doctor Who, following Verity Lambert (played by Hide’s Jessica Raine) and then David Bradley as First Doctor, William Hartnell. After near-universally positive reviews, writer, Mark Gatiss (The Unquiet Dead; Cold War) said:

“As many of you reading this may know, An Adventure in Space and Time has been the summation of a long-held dream of mine to tell the story of the birth-pangs of Doctor Who.


Making Adventure was a wonderful experience. The whole team were absolutely dedicated to the project, going the extra mile (or parsec) to create that smoggy early 60s world where so much seemed (and was) suddenly possible. And none more so than Edmund Butt whose gorgeous score is one of the highlights of the film.


I’ve been completely overwhelmed by the response to the film. It was a very special project from the outset and I know Ed’s soundtrack will continue to thrill and delight for, well, the rest of space and time…”

Edmund Butt has previously composed music for Sea of Souls, Murphy’s Law, and Mistresses, but perhaps most notably for Life on Mars and Ashes to Ashes, so has plenty of experience capturing the essence of any given era.
