Doctor Who Theme- Versions Ranked

oooooWEEEEEEOOOOOOOWEEEEROOOOOOOO Na Na Na Na Na Na Na dun dun dun dun NANA!!! I'm a whovian as you guys know and since the show makes a return next Sunday, I figure it would be a nice idea to rank the versions of the theme.
1Pete Howell
Doctor Who Theme- 1980-1985

Amazingly atmospheric and intense. It sounds great turned up a few semitones, and the voice
synthesizer? Brilliant, but even more amazing is that synth that sounds suspiciously like a guitar.
Power of rock, you have officially have been introduced to Doctor Who.
2Murray Gold
Doctor Who Theme- 2007-2010

The drums, strings and oscillator. Dude, it makes you imagine you're going into battle.
3Doctor Who Theme 2005-2007

It stays close to the original yet it has lots of sweep. Has that battle feel, but to a lesser extent.
4Delia Derbyshire and Ron Grainer
Doctor Who- Radiophonic Workshop version

The version that started it all. It had people hiding behind the couches before The X Files. Very
intense and atmospheric. Often considered to be the first electronic music ever made, as it was
made entirely on non-instruments.
5Pink Floyd
One of these Days

Yes, it's only a few seconds in the middle, but it does sound like it would have made a good
Doctor Who theme used in the series.
6John Debney
Doctor Who Theme 1996 TV Movie

It was the first to bring the "epic sweep" to the theme, however, it sounds a bit overdone. Also,
it's featured in a shit movie too.
7John Pertwee
I Am The Doctor

Meh. The theme doesn't need lyrics.
8Keff McCulloch
Doctor Who Theme (1986-1988)

It does sound very "mysterious", but being done on all synthesizers just sounds like they were
trying too hard. I can't take it seriously at all- it sounds very laughable.
9John Debney
Doctor Who Theme (1983)

Sounds even worse than the McCulloch version!
10Murray Gold
Doctor Who Theme (2010-2013)

Seriously, how could he fuck it all up? He manages to ruin the epic sweep. Seriously, it sounds
cheap. The theme didn't need changing when the 2009 version of the theme was way epic.
