Specials Soundtrack Shuffled

If you’ve already pre-ordered Doctor Who: Series 4 – The Specials from Amazon – or anywhere else for that matter – you should know that you’ll be receiving your copy of the soundtrack from David Tennant’s final five a bit later than expected; the Silva Screen Blog has announced that the album’s release date has been delayed from September 20th to October 4th.

The £11.99 price tag, as well as the November 8th launch of the Series 5 soundtrack (going for the same price), remains intact.

In case you haven’t caught our previous articles about the album, every movement of music found in The Next Doctor, Planet of the Dead, The Waters of Mars, and The End of Time, as opposed to just the highlights from previous Who soundtracks, will appear in order on this two-disc set.  If you’re a Murray Gold fanatic, add this to your Very-Early Holiday Wish List (wot, you don’t give Halloween presents?  Shame)!

Curiously, if you look at the specific list of tracks, you may notice that Ron Grainer’s iconic Ooo-Wee-Ooo has been left out of this playlist.  What’s a Doctor Who soundtrack without the theme?  Perhaps the BBC simply doesn’t want people to confuse it with the Smith era sound, or coerce the return of the mountain of complaints over the new title sequence that first appeared following the broadcast of The Eleventh Hour (frankly, I don’t see what all the fuss was about; see Issue 2 of Fish Fingers and Custard when it comes out for my take on the new theme).

Can’t wait for October 4th?  Need your Doctor Who music fix right now?  Good news – the extended television version of the Doctor Who Prom is now available on iPlayer!
