Longtime composer Murray Gold departs Doctor Who before series eleven

After over a decade, the music of Doctor Who will be in a new set of hands as the Jodie Whittaker era begins.

Change is the name of the game, especially when it comes to the long-running science fiction series Doctor Who where the main character regenerates into a new form every few years for a new actor to take over the role. This fall more than just the actor is changing for the series as it enters it’s 11th series since the 2005 reboot.

One constant since the show rebooted under the guidance of Russel T. Davies was the music provided by composer Murray Gold. His tenure on the series saw four different actors playing the Doctor and two different showrunners and various companions, adventures through time and space and Christmas specials.

That time is now over.

After composing for 125 episodes, the latest being the “Twice Upon A Time” Christmas special that ended Peter Capaldi’s time as the doctor and Steven Moffat’s time as showrunner, Gold has confirmed that he is indeed leaving the series as was rumored since the end of last year.

New showrunner Chris Chibnall and new Doctor Jodie Whittaker, along with the new gang of companions and new writers, will welcome a new composer to take over the iconic series music. Currently, there is no word on who that will be, but with the show coming later this year it’s only a matter of time before it’s revealed.
