We were all sitting around one night last week trying to help my friend Kristen take her mind off her busted rotator cuff and broken finger, and of course the distraction of choice was a David Tennant Doctor Who marathon. As the evening progressed, the show’s awesome music invariable led to the discussion of ring tones. Myion wanted not just the song, “The Sound of Drums”, he wanted the Master yelling, “Here come THE DRUMS!!!” right before the music erupts onto the screen. Custom tone, tall order. Can’t just log onto T-Mobile to get that one, right?
My personal favs leaned towards a particularly ravishing use of, “The Doctor’s Theme” on the Murray Gold soundtrack for Seasons 1 and 2, and an almost hypnotic score piece found not on any of the soundtracks, but on the opening DVD menu for Seasons 3 & 4! Heh, we don’t do anything easy around here.
Determined after a few days of listening obsessively to both pieces, I recorded them, got them edited them down to a manageable ring tone size and, with some cleverness, got them into my cell phone. Wasn’t easy without internet access, but nothing worth doing ever is. Enjoy them, they were made possible through a mad love for the series.
