AllMusic Review by

From Ron Granier and Delia Derbyshire's groundbreaking theme song to Brian Hodgson's eerie synth experiments in The Krotons, the music of Doctor Who has always been a fascinating entity that showcased the innovative and forward-thinking ideas coming out of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop. With Doctor Who: The 50th Anniversary Collection, fans of the long-running BBC series get a bird's-eye view of some of the great music that has been the backdrop of the Doctor's adventures across all of space and time. With four discs and 129 tracks to explore, Whovians can explore music from 50 years of television, making this set as close to time traveling as you can get without your own TARDIS.
