New thing. At appropriate intervals I’m going to post my favourite music from Doctor Who, perhaps with a view to doing a “Best Music of Doctor Who” series or post sometime in the future. Because Doctor Who, both modern and classic, has some truly outstanding music, an aspect of the show that sometimes gets overlooked beside the writing and the acting.
The first post in this series then, features A Good Man (the Twelfth Doctor’s theme). It’s just wonderfully epic. It makes Twelve’s “saving the day” moments that much more exhilarating, and, truly, it suits Capaldi’s Doctor so well. Definitely one of the better pieces of Doctor Who music, in my opinion.
Yes, I’ve been absent lately. That’s due to a mixture of laziness and being somewhat busy with another creative project that’s been taking up a lot of my spare time recently. I want to get back to posting regularly here as soon as possible. In fact, I’m planning to do a post on my ideas for whom the new Doctor Who companion could be, which I hope to start work on tomorrow.
For now, though, enjoy this musical intermission. This song, I Know What I Am by Band of Skulls, has been stuck in my head for over two months now. I know — I’ve checked. Someone please send help.
Apologies to my faithful and kind readers for the dearth of posting over the last week. I’ve just come out of four months of writing almost daily Doctor Who reviews, so I fancied a little break from blogging. I’m planning to write up my review of The Magician’s Apprentice/The Witch’s Familiar tomorrow, but, for now, enjoy this little musical intermission. It’s Camille Saint-Saëns’ Danse Macabre, which the student orchestra I play in is currently rehearsing. You might recognise it as the theme from Jonathan Creek…
