- Doctor Who - Sound Effects by BBC Radiophonic Workshop
7/10 Mike Staff review, 16 April 2014
Thanks to the hard work of the mavericks at the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, Doctor Who has found a place not only as classic pulp sci-fi but for its pioneering sound design. Ron Grainer and Delia Derbyshire's theme is a staple of early experimental electronics, and this LP here compiles various sound effects from the much loved series.
Ever wanted to experience the sound of a 'Wind-Mine Machine' or 'Sutekh Time Tunnel' or 'Kraal Disorientation Chamber' or 'Inside Dr. Who's Mind' without all that pesky dialogue getting in the way? This is the record for you. The first half of the 30 tracks here are longer tracks covering background ambience, lots of drones and weird little analogue twitches and beeps and gentle ambient hums capturing otherworldly futuristic locations. The second half covers doors opening and closing and different ray gun sounds, it's less relaxing.
If you're a fan of Doctor Who or vintage sound design in general then there's some interesting nostalgic sci-fi sounds on here, but by its nature it is a bit disjointed and probably more something you would use as a sample source rather than one you'll be returning to regularly for fun, hence the lowish score. In terms of doing what it says on the tin effectively, though, I can't fault it. It is an LP of Doctor Who sound effects.
