    Hmm, mostly Season 5 music. I suppose that’s ok if you’re a Season 5 fan, but if you’re kind of lukewarm about it like I am, this Running Order is…… least missable, personally.

    I agree with JC. To be honest the only one I would love to hear is Vale Decem. I’m still hoping they release that on CD. Speaking of which, is there any sort of word on whether they will release a new soundtrack?

    People are never happy are they!!! This is an overview of music from the last year. Previous music was overviews from that year. Doctor Who has moved on, it’s time these fans did as well!

    I really do hope they release a Specials Soundtrack! WOM and Ten’s last episodes really did include some great tracks (I especially loved the track that was used when he was visiting his friends, thought that was beautiful!)
    But if your not really a fan of series five (like me) I dont think that list is very impressive

    well, I am a fan of series five, and all the previous ones too. I am taking my daughter to see this on sunday and we are both REALLY looking forward to it. This line up looks great and I’m sure there will be a few surprises too.
    If you’re really not a fan, then don’t go, and don’t bother listening on saturday night either. You grumpy lot.

    The thing is, they’ve done the previous series’ music at the last Doctor Who Proms. Not all of it, I know, but I’m personally very much looking forward to this. It’ll be nice to hear Amy’s theme in its distilled version.

    Love the setlist! Personally, I’m not too keen on having This is Gallifrey and Song of Freedom return when there are other Series Five compositions which could be used.

    JC and pirko aren’t happy??!?! I’m shocked. ::rolls eyes::

    Can’t wait to see it personally.

    I aint a Season 5 fan, that’s all. I lived with it, I liked bits of it but I was far from impressed, that’s documented everywhere over this site.

    I’m not afraid to be negative, I’m not afraid to criticise stuff down to the bone, but I’m also able to balance that out with positive stuff too, so not all my posts are 100% negative.

    This is Gallifrey is my favourite pre-s5 piece. I absolutely adore it. Madame de Pompadour, too, gets listened to a lot. What about everyone else? Do you have favourites?

    @ Glenn

    woah woah woah i never said i was not looking forward to it. I happened to like some of the music for series 5 (amys theme, the trailer music etc). I was just saying I was looking forward to the Vale decem part.

    the reason song of freedom and this is gallifrey were on at this years prom was that they heald a vote on the Doctor Who website to determine what are the fans best musical moments (i personally voted for song for freedom-even got my name on the site :) ), and it so happens that those two and the song played during the recent regeneration and also the song played during matts doctor being trapped in the pandorica were also in the running, but ultimately it was fan votes that got the to first themes in this Prom (just for clarification if anyone needed it)
