Not officially announced, but a tracklist with titles and timings appeared on the Groove Merchants website.

Here's the tracklist:

Looks like a two-disc set, if this information is correct.

Did... we ever get a series 10?

It's pretty wild to have this happening before series 10, but at least we won't have to wait years for it.

You're joking right? I'm sure there are some classic Who series that could lay claim to that!

Actually...( for me) I can't remember much worse (and that includes all the dogey Sylvester Macoy and Colin Baker stuff!) Looks great...acting okay...terrible boring stories.
Again..to keep on topic.... quite liked the music. I'm okay with the different approach.

Ah, music to put me to sleep to at night.

I'm going to be interested to hear this music standalone. Most of the time it's very unobtrusive. There's a couple of standouts like when she's building her sonic.

As for the season: To all the haters: My wife and kids are watching Doctor Who with me every week for the first time ever.

It's First Season Doctor Who. It's terrific.

Haters. What a sad term. You know, (to quote the 5th Doctor Peter Davison) there should have been a better way. Deliberately going in with the intention of doing a new series in a certain way and bugger everyone else who isn't onboard is such a unfortunate way to do it.

SOME people could do a new series in a way that actually keeps 50 odd years worth of viewers AND attract new ones. In my opinion Russell T Davies did just that. He knew what made it good in the first place and added his own twist.

The current 'boss' has simply stuck two fingers up at those who might have reservations and said "sod you".

But I am glad for those who LOVE the new series. But my oh my isn't there a real clamp down on any even slightly negative view of all this?

However! One of the best breaths of fresh air is the new composer's scoring. In my OWN opinion Murray Gold waivered a little after the glory days of that first five years, although it was still pretty damn good - after all if he hadn't stayed we wouldn't have gems like Heaven Sent.

But I do like a quieter and more subtle approach too. There are more echoes of what the lovely Dudley Simpson did for so many years here. And I will be listening to this new soundtrack away from what I consider to be a pretty odd production, with some enthusiasm. Much as I will miss Murray.

Everything he said. Nicely put Paul.

This season of Doctor Who is dreadful. Shockingly written and played and only marginally entertaining. Jodie Whittaker doesn't have that magic ingredient that makes a great or even good Doctor.

The music is instantly forgettable. Curious to know if/how it plays away from the show.

Don't hate the new series, I just find it uninteresting and doesn't fit the bill of "Must See TV". I have four episodes on my DVR. I need to watch at some point in time. But I haven't built up the enthusiasm to do so.

I think the current season has been absolutely fine, including Jodie Whittaker! A step up from the Moffat days, but obviously still not on Russell T. Davies level. Not that thrilled with the music, however. Neither foul nor fish (meaning neither the fullbodied orchestral stuff that Murray Gold did nor the kind of experimental, electronic soundscapes that the ol' workshop did). Kind of generic and anonymous, IMO.

Same thoughts, Thor! Especially about music. frown

Seems funny we've jumped to the Season 11 soundtrack. Does this mean there will be no Season 10 release?

Well, there's fine, rubbish and great isn't there? I was fine with Peter Capaldi, who for me was sapped of an emerging character of his own by bosses worried about reaction to someone who said "I can't do what Matt and David did". But his performance was usually good.

Sadly I'm with the disappointed end of this board's fan range. I welcome more straightforwardly told stories. I welcome diverse casting, except in their rush to shout this from the rooftops for the inevitable back patting they forgot Martha Jones played by the lovely Freema Agyeman, and that only ONE female companion had a relationship with a white man. Reminds me of when they made the online video announcement that Capaldi's last companion was gay when we'd already had the well liked Captain Jack Harkness.

What I'm not keen on is stories with little or no threat, and yes the gender change. And her performance hasn't made me want to change my mind with the lack of gravitas. Only the historicals had merit for me, and the sfx for the giant spiders one.

But I am looking forward to the music away from the show. I admit it hasn't actually blown me away, but maybe not being annoyed by the onscreen antics will give me a better experience of what it has to offer.

As for Series 10, I doubt it's been abandoned, it just takes Murray Gold a little longer to get his stuff out. It was quite a while before Series 9 emerged.

I'm with those who like the new series. My wife says she's enjoying it again, while my kids (who have seen everything available from the first Doctor on) also like it. Yes, it is low on the cataclysmic threat level, but it is FUN again.

I have no problems with Jodie except that I find her accent (along with some of the companions) occasionally hard to understand. (But I'm from the Midwest U.S., so what do I know?)

The music, on the other hand, has done nothing for me whatsoever. The main title graphics are also all wrong IMHO: too dark for the much lighter stories. I might give the soundtrack samples a listen, but my inclination is to give it a miss.

As a resident of the English north it may go without saying that it's one of those things that's not a problem for me! Christopher Eccleston was the first one to play it with an English northern accent and I liked that too. It's so nice to be represented. And if we had been more around over the decades since sound came to film you folks might be better at understanding us!

The ONLY thing so far about JW I don't mind is her accent. She came from only 17 miles away from me, so I should be celebrating having a local actor as my hero. Sadly I really do see the character as a male role so that stops me first. And then once accepting the gender change I don't find her to have the gravitas of most of her predecessors. Sadly the post-2005 Who producers see the character as comic in nature full stop, and she seems to channel just that part of the character. She is for me too light and breezy.

But people did want the break in the film style compositions of Murray Gold. I think it's a shame in some ways. Because MG brought a lot of people into the show as much as any of the other changes from the 'old' days, and I loved it. Obviously this is because I love the movie scoring that we're all on this board for, and so having movie style music in my favourite show was wonderful. But things do change. Us old timers can do nothing about that.

The New Years Day Special looks a little more dramatic than the rest of this year's offerings from the trailer. It may contain the one thing no other episode has had so far. A proper evil villain, and possibly Doctor Who's oldest baddie. Please Lord let it not be another misunderstood poor soul by the end of the episode:

And Louis you should take a look at the first ten years of Who title sequences (Hartnell - Pertwee). They were mysterious, not flashy. And check out that opening title music too. No orchestra, not keyboard, no synthesisers.... Just pure innovation
