UK four CD set. 50 years. 11 Doctors and 129 tracks. This is the release that Doctor Who fans worldwide have been waiting for, assembled after years of research and trawls through dusty archives and libraries. It's a comprehensive overview of the very special music that has accompanied the Doctor over his travels through time and space from William Hartnell in 1963 to present day Matt Smith. From Ron Grainer's iconic theme realized by the BBC Radiophonic Workshop's Delia Derbyshire to Murray Gold's orchestral tapestries, this is a musical saga of monumental proportions. The esteemed collection of composers featured include Tristram Cary, Brian Hodgson, Wilfred Josephs, Dudley Simpson, Geoffrey Burgon, Paddy Kingsland, Roger Limb, Malcolm Clarke, Keff McCulloch, Dominic Glynn, John Debney and many more. The lavish 20 page booklet with the set includes liner notes from Doctor Who composer Mark Ayres on the history of music in the series and details of the episodes.

The early recordings are before my time watching Doctor Who, as I discovered him with the Fourth Doctor. As such, pretty much all of disc one for me is just experiments in electronic sound, more akin to sound effects or atmosphere tones. That's not bad by any means, just not quite what I would listen to. That said, I am still glad to have it included for it's history. Okay, truth be told, in my opinion, the whole first disc is worth it for the original theme and the original TARDIS sound.
The remaining three discs are each increasingly better and disc four has some of the best tracks collected from the last few seasons of the "new" Who that would be very difficult to find at any reasonable expense.
This full, four disc set is a must have over the abbreviated 2CD version. With some careful shopping, can be had for the same price as the 2CD version (though not through Amazon directly).
There are some truly amazing pieces here, including Dudley Simpson's epic score for "The Invasion of Time," and Malcolm Clarke's unforgettable "Earthshock" soundtrack--both of which give me goosebumps to this day. What's more, there are some rather surprisingly selections represented, ranging from Elizabeth Parker's score from the much-maligned "Timelash" to the Keff McCulloch's rather charming (if obscure) "Here's to the Future" (with vocals) from "Delta and the Bannermen."
