Sorry if mentioned elsewhere but,Silva Screen have announced they will be issuing the soundtrack to the one off tv special early in 2014...

I've liked Ed Butt's music ever since I heard it in the ITV series Afterlife (which starred Sheriff Rick from Walking Dead).
He's only had two CD's released of his music (to my knowledge) and they are The Dark and The Waiting Room. He did have some tracks on the Life On Mars/Ashes To Ashes CD's, but they are predominantly filled with songs of the era.
I haven't watched this show yet (it's in my TiVo library) but it's good news that more music by him is being made available.

On a side note, there is still no sign of a Region 1 DVD release in the U.S. It was released in Canada, but as an exclusive through Bestbuy.

Very happy about this release as I mentioned how good the music was in a previous thread. Still play THE DARK soundtrack a lot so it's great to get another cd of Mr Butt's wonderful music. For me it really stood out and enhanced the emotional impact of this excellent drama.

I missed 'An Adventure In Space And Time' so look forward to ordering the DVD and CD together from Amazon!

A selection of preview clips from the forthcoming soundtrack release of An Adventure In Space And Time has been made available by BBC Worldwide.

The score, written by Edmund Butt, was performed by the Chamber Orchestra of London, and Mark Gatiss, who wrote the BBC Two 50th-anniversary drama about the genesis of the programme, has said:
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.

Here's our review

I actually sat down this afternoon to watch this (foolishly believing I would have a spare 2 hours of chill-out time to myself!!!..silly me) only to get interrupted about 10 minutes or so into it.
Of the brief moments I heard of the music (the beguiling opening theme, the sad/morose yet lovely music introducing Hartnell and the jaunty establishing music arriving at BBC studios) I had already decided this would be another Ed Butt CD that would be joining my collection.
After spending the last few years having to deliver that insipid/droning/stay out of the way noise that counts as film/TV music for most tin-eared producers and audiences these days, it must have been nirvana for Butt to be allowed to write some real music as per Gatiss' request.

Nice review. Shame I didn't spot this thread before posting the previews myself. Doh!

Okay, I have the CD and I've played snippets. They sound great. I love the sad melancholy tone and the nice clear orchestral sound. I'm getting a bit of a Thomas Newman vibe to some tracks.
I haven't watched the show yet, so I'm trying to hold off playing the CD fully until I have.
I prefer the more colourful artwork B cover to the darker (purple photo) A one, so did a switcheroo there.
Anyone else diggin' this?

Received my copy yesterday along with Silva's DW 50th Anniversary Collection.

An Adventure in Space and Time is a wonderful score for a wonderful slice of TV docu-nostalgia....

As for the other purchase. Well, I'm feeling a bit like a pig in the proverbial right now! (Even if I do already have all of disc 4 , it still makes for a great "Now That's What I Call Nu-Who" selection.)

I'm getting a bit of a Thomas Newman vibe to some tracks.

That's funny because I was comparing it to Saving Mr. Banks.

I really love the 'whirligig waltz' that opens and closes the CD. It's like a cross between Tales From The Unexpected and The Jonathan Creek theme. Pity it didn't get more of a work-out, it's quite addictive.

I couldn't resist it and have now played this CD fully about 4 or 5 times, but still not watched the drama it belongs to.
There is a strong Thomas Newman vibe throughout the music, but it's all great stuff.
Some lovely themes, lots of variety, purely orchestral. Quite old school in fact.
I hope this leads to more prominent work for Ed Butt and lots of great future releases.
Highly recommended!

My thoughts on the score. Lovely soundtrack with beautiful, though quite passages. A bit subdued, but wonderfully orchestrated and fits the film perfectly. Context is everything.

I have to agree - this is a lovely score that I came to only recently. Silva Screen are selling it for £6.99 through August as part of their Doctor Who offer, so it's well worth a punt

Nice score which compliments a wonderfully crafted production. One of my favourite periods of Doctor Who. For me, it was the highlight of the 50th anniversary.
