Murray Gold

Born: Fri 28th February 1969 (age: 45)


Murray Gold is an English composer and dramatist who has served as musical director for Doctor Who since its revival in 2005.

He has been nominated for a BAFTA four times in the category Best Original Television Music, for Vanity Fair (1999), Queer as Folk (2000), Casanova (2006) and Doctor Who (2008). His score for the BAFTA-winning film Kiss of Life was awarded the 'Mozart Prize of the 7th Art' by a French jury at Aubagne in 2003.

Gold has also been nominated four times by the Royal Television Society in categories relating to music for television.

He has had a long professional association with Russell T Davies, collaborating on projects such as Casanova, The Second Coming, and Queer as Folk. He also provided the incidental music for the 2000s version of Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased) alongside James Bond composer David Arnold, who provided the theme tune.

He wrote the theme tune for the Channel 4 series Shameless and scored the period drama The Devil's Whore, while his radio play Electricity was given the Imison Award for best new play after its broadcast on Radio 3 in 2000. It subsequently transferred to the West Yorkshire Playhouse in 2004, with Christopher Eccleston in the lead role.

Others plays of Gold's include 50 Revolutions, performed by the Oxford Stage Company at the Whitehall Theatre, London, in 2000, and Resolution at Battersea Arts Centre in 1994.

For Doctor Who, he created a new arrangement of the show's theme. A number of CDs featuring his music from the series have been released by Silva Screen. Gold also wrote the theme tunes for Doctor Who spin-offs The Sarah Jane Adventures and Torchwood.

Gold has created, arranged and orchestrated several special live concerts featuring the music from Doctor Who. Doctor Who: A Celebration took place at the Millennium Centre in Cardiff in 2006, and his music has featured in the Doctor Who Proms of 2008, 2010, and 2013 at the Royal Albert Hall in London.
