Murray Gold, On YouTube, Playing “I Am the Doctor”

So, this guy going by the name “TerrifiedDuck” on YouTube did this video of himself and described it as “A person playing a piece at the piano…”

Except it’s actually Murray Gold, composer and arranger of the music for Doctor Who since the 2005 reboot.

And the piece is the Eleventh Doctor’s theme, “I Am the Doctor.”

So, yeah, cool.

    I would love for Murray Gold to write my theme music. (This is the music I used for Chris Hardwick’s birthday video.)

    Murray Gold’s music makes Doctor Who so much more powerful! I love what he did for the theme. I cannot say enough good things about him as a composer. <3

    Nice ending. I’ve always liked this piece, and how it’s in 7/4 time, which, of course, adds up to 11.

    How awesome is that, I listen to this track so much and I’ve listened to loads of piano versions, this is just amazing.
