Murray Gold being shippy shippy shippy  
So I was just watching Voyage of the Damned and listening to the audio commentary bc I'm a huge geek like that ... and Murray Gold happened to be one of the commentators, and he said this:

"I'd written this song which comes in just for a little bit, called 'The Stowaway', which was on the album ... so you get a little bit of it, and some of the fans probably had heard it before, 'cause it was out on the CD before, and they were 'What does it mean, that 'the stowaway' is going back to his love? What is that?' and people started to speculate about was there a hidden meaning behind the words - which I think we'll probably discover in the end of Series 4." -- Murray Gold, "Voyage of the Damned" DVD audio commentary

So I mean yes, I think it was completely clear to Ten/Rose shippers all along that this song was about Rose - I mean, who else would it be about? But damn if it wasn't nice to hear him confirm it =)

I honestly never even noticed that Doomsday had its own theme until it was pointed out to me - it must have not made very much of an impression on me at all

I find it funny, not that you didn't notice as such, more about what music people do and don't notice. I noticed Doomsday straight away, I admit that I didn't notice Rose's theme til the second time I watched... It has nothing to do with liking it or not, just didn't really notice it.

As for S5-6, well, I admit it took me a while to realise the music was still good cause I was too busy being miserable over how much things had changed :P

Re Martha's theme though, it just feels so DEEP and RICH and EXOTIC.

YES, EXACTLY! That's possibly the best description of it ever!

And erm, Donna's theme... It obviously made a huge impression on me cause I can't remember it. At all. Not a good sign.

Lol ... I didn't realize Rose's theme was HER theme until she was written off the show and they didn't play it anymore XD XD

Yeah, I think he kind of phoned this one in:

I didn't find out Rose's theme til I'd watched some of the Confidentials or something... I can't remember what exactly, but they pointed it out and I had that 'ohhhhhh' moment.

Yeah, I think he kind of phoned this one in:

Ohhhhm, that's right. Now I remember it. Yeah, not exactly his best effort. Good, but really kind of dull.

Dull and ... quirky? It's not really pretty imo. Donna was quirky but there was an underlying depth to her that's not reflected in this. Sounds more like a video game theme to me lol!

Or maybe like a sitcom theme even? You're right though, Donna has depth, her theme not so much.
