New themes for the Doctor, Ruby, and the show itself in a two hour celebration of six decades of music!

In timey wimey fashion, it may be three days early, but nobody’s complaining. Last month’s Doctor Who 60th Anniversary Concert has now arrived on BBC Sounds and it’s every bit as magnificent as fans had reported. But the most anticipated highlights have to be the new character themes The Life of Sunday and Fifteen, along with musical genius Murray Gold’s latest take on the greatest theme in the galaxy. And it’s one of his best – rearranging the furniture while moving in some exciting new ideas, like a cascading piano. Meanwhile, Fifteen, with its snarling electric guitar and a beat that sounds like it’s on course to win the Grand National promises our new Doctor will have energy to spare. Finally The Life of Sunday is a wistful waltz suggesting Ruby’s another companion ready to escape the everyday world for a life of adventure.
