TV Soundtrack - Doctor Who - Devils' Planets (2003) Retail CD
Before Peter Howell, before Dudley Simpson, before the "Drumdramatics" stock music of 'Tenth Planet' and subsequent Cybermen episodes, there was Tristram Cary, forging a completely unique musical path for Doctor Who with some of the most avant-garde electronic music heard up to that point. The music from three stories is featured here, those stories being 'The Daleks' (1963/64), 'The Daleks' Masterplan' (1965/66) and 'The Mutants' (1972). Each is distinctly different: 'The Daleks' receive the cutting-edge treatment - oscillators, feedback, nothing's too far-fetched, and given that story's pivotalmore… place in Doctor Who (not to mention television and science fiction) history, the unique treatment is fitting. 'Masterplan' receives a somewhat more conventional acoustic sound for the most part (with the odd electronic addition here and there), while 'The Mutants' (a Jon Pertwee story) is very reminiscent of Malcolm Clark's music for 'The Sea Devils,' only perhaps with a more organized rhythmic (if not necessarily tonal) structure. Not as accessible as some of the later works of Howell and the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, Mark Ayres or Dominic Glynn, certainly, but in the year that we're celebrating the 40th anniversary of the series, there's no more perfect choice (or surprising! Who knew these tapes still existed!?) for this year's Doctor Who music release. Give it a listen at least once, and do a little time traveling of your own back to a Saturday evening in December 1963...
