The eagerly awaited Doctor Who Series 13: The Specials. Comprised of 3 digital volumes – Eve Of The Daleks, Legend of the Sea Devils and The Power Of The Doctor.

The 2022 Doctor Who specials are the three additional episodes that follow the programme’s thirteenth series. The first special, Eve Of The Daleks, aired on 1 January 2022, the second, Legend of the Sea Devils, aired on 17 April and the third, The Power Of The Doctor on 23 October. They are the final episodes to feature Jodie Whittaker as the Thirteenth Doctor. The specials also star Mandip Gill and John Bishop as the Doctor’s travelling companions, Yasmin Khan and Dan Lewis. Chris Chibnall is the showrunner and the writer. All Series 13 episodes, together with the 3 specials, are currently available to watch on BBC iPlayer in the UK.

Chris Chibnall reflects on Segun’s work – “How do I sum up Segun’s contribution to ‘Doctor Who’, and the Thirteenth Doctor’s era, in a few words?… I only need one: brilliant! Segun made the show’s musical landscape wide-ranging, specific and authentic. The scores for these three Specials illustrate that breadth perfectly. From the witty but emotional jazz-infused chamber piece of Eve Of The Daleks, through the beautiful and powerful use of traditional Chinese instrumentation in Legend Of The Sea Devils, culminating with The Power of The Doctor: a fitting climax to Segun’s work on the show – bringing together so many of the fabulous themes he’s created: from Daleks and Cybermen to the Master, Yaz, and the Thirteenth Doctor’s wondrous heroic and emotive theme.”

Segun scored Sundance 2019 favourite The Last Tree, which was also recorded at Abbey Road Studios. This is Segun’s second feature film collaboration with director Shola Amoo after A Moving Image, and it earned him a Discovery of the Year award nomination at the World Soundtrack Awards. A BAFTA Breakthrough Brit 2017, Segun’s other work includes scoring BBC Two’s landmark four-part series Black and British: A Forgotten History.

Music by Benji Merrison and Will Slater

—————————

Benji Merrison and Will Slater’s soundtrack to the 90-minute feature documentary Missile From The East. The film follows the true story of Ernst Degner, a champion East German motorcycle racer who risked his and his family’s life to defect to West Germany during the Swedish Grand Prix in 1961, taking MZ’s groundbreaking engine technology with him and helping Suzuki win its first Grand Prix Championship. For this intriguing documentary, Merrison and Slater created an exciting score that pulsates with exhilarating synth ostinatos, soaring strings and scattered tune fragments carried by strings and electric piano. Opening with synth ostinatos and gradually shifting into mellow soundscapes, the score resolves in the beautiful closing track Degner’s World, a tranquil piano piece.

Acclaimed multi-disciplinary music masters, Benji Merrison and Will Slater are now creating sounds for the screen together calling upon their collective experience from a music and arts education, work producing and touring records, as well composing for Film & TV. Their working partnership started when they were commissioned to score the popular BBC David Attenborough series _Dynasties_ in 2018, for which they received nominations from the IFMCA and News and Documentary Emmys, followed by Meerkat – A Dynasties Special and The Green Planet. Benji is an award-winning classically trained composer and a skilled music producer and engineer. His distinctive musical voice is in high demand, and he is known for SAS: Red Notice (for which he received the World Soundtrack Award), Forces of Nature with Brian Cox, Dynasties, General Magic and The Beatles and India. Will Slater has been composing for television for close to 20 years and his extensive CV includes the RTS winning score Africa, Planet Earth Live, Dynasties, Shark and One Strange Rock.

Currently available on Silva Screen Records are Benji Merrison and Will Slater’s soundtracks The Green Planet, Dynasties and Meerkat – A Dynasties Special and Benji Merrison’s scores for highly acclaimed General Magic and The Beatles And India.

Missile From The East is the Winner of the Golden Palm at the 22nd Beverly Hills Film Festival. Commissioned by SKY Documentary, the film premiered on Sky HD and is currently available to buy and stream on TV+, Amazon and NOWTV.

—————————

‘The Musical Anthology of His Dark Materials: Series Three’, with music composed by Lorne Balfe. This third ‘Musical Anthology’ volume presents newly composed principal themes from series three.

The music for the entire His Dark Materials Trilogy is composed by Lorne Balfe. In this introduction to the music from the television series, Balfe delves into the series and character themes from the final instalment of Philip Pullman’s acclaimed trilogy. Lorne describes his score as “Elgar meets Nine Inch Nails” and recounts that “The main thing that we wanted to do was to always have a clear journey of each character’s theme… I wrote their themes separately as a journey, so that we knew musically what would happen throughout the series… I love that slight steampunk feeling of the books where you don’t necessarily know the period or time that you’re in. There’s a mixture of technologies and it’s in the realm of fantasy very [much] like Harry Potter. I think that, to me, is what drew me into that world and the fact there are several worlds- you’ve got the present and the past”.

The Musical Anthology of His Dark Materials Series One and Two were warmly received by the press. First post describes the score as “fantasy the way it should be done: sumptuous, inspiring both wonder and a sense of adventure, beautifully scored (by Lorne Balfe), with world building that is as impeccable as it is effortless.” Classic FM sees it as an “epic work that perfectly foreshadows Lyra’s journey, and could easily belong in Assassin’s Creed or Tomb Raider” whilst Movie Wave comments on the score being “… thematically rich, dramatically potent fantasy music… undoubtedly one of the most impressive new scores of the year.”

The show’s third and final season is based on Philip Pullman’s The Amber Spyglass, the third book in the author’s His Dark Materials trilogy.

Lorne Balfe (Mission Impossible: Fallout, The Lego Batman Movie, Churchill) is a Grammy Award winning, EMMY and BAFTA nominated composer.

Music by Federico Jusid

—————————

The English, Federico Jusid’s sweeping, nostalgic and raw score to Hugo Blick’s 6-part contemporary Western. Giving a nod to 1950s western soundtracks, the score is enriched by Dvořák’s String Quartet No. 12. known as the “American”, written during Dvořák’s stay in America, and only 3 years after the events of the series. Also featured on the album are the beautiful folk songs by The Wailin’ Jennys, Melanie, Crooked Still, Ora Cogan and Tom McRae. The second track on the album, Tâtačiksta_ – I Cherish You, features a tender reading by Emily Blunt.

“It is a production that pulls you into its aesthetic from the first moment you see the evocative title sequence by Scatterlight Studios, which also clues you into how Federico Jusid’s score will add to the grand sweeping scale. Jusid taps into the spirit of legendary composer Ennio Morricone without feeling derivative or like he is merely mimicking the master of this genre. Blick incorporates tracks by singers like Rodriguez and Melanie that are obviously not accurate to the era but add to the emotional tone. It is a masterclass in mixing contemporary elements with a period piece without pulling you out of the setting.” – The Playlist

Jusid’s music structure is based on leitmotifs, very simple and symmetric, constantly varied and developed to mirror the protagonists’ journeys. Big orchestral sounds underpin epic and romantic themes. Sound design, processed percussion and ethnic instruments effortlessly blend in with the orchestral material. Frederico describes his compositional process – “Unlike other projects, I started working with Hugo Blick, at a very early stage, some time before he even started shooting. Inspired by the scripts, his story board and chatting about the classics, I wrote different piano tunes and first mock-ups and sent them over to him… Often, I have received scenes cut to my own music and that made the process deeply organic and profound. The music became a core element of the structure of the show, instead of a later addition. In the end, Hugo and I worked for an entire year to develop this score. This is about four times the usual time I get to work on any other project, especially nowadays, that deadlines and fast deliveries curb the creative processes so dramatically.”

The English will premiere in the UK on 10th November on BBC Two and BBC iPlayer, and in the US and rest of the World on 11th November on Prime Video. The show is written and directed by Hugo Blick (The Honorable Woman, Black Earth Rising) and stars Emily Blunt, Chaske Spencer, Stephen Rea, Valerie Pachner, Rafe Spall, Tom Hughes, Toby Jones and Ciarán Hinds. The 6-part western drama tells the story of an aristocratic Englishwoman and a Pawnee ex-cavalry scout who come together in 1890 middle America to cross a violent landscape built on dreams and blood. The Guardian recounts it as a “brutal, beautiful tale of the Old West… all oil-dark humour, elite-level acting and gorgeous, lingering wide shots”, whilst the FT observes that “Between the exquisitely choreographed stand-offs – all twitching fingers and shifting eyes – the Morricone-inflected soundtrack, the sweeping vistas and the cool, broody dialogue, Blick delivers a stirring love letter to the great westerns of yesteryear.”Blick and Blunt are also executive producing the Drama Republic production with Greg Brenman (Billy Elliot, The Boys Are Back).

Up and coming composer, Federico Jusid’s writing for Watership Down has been lauded by Movie Music UK as “sensational” and even, further praised as superior – “the action music is superior, the variety of the orchestrations is superior, the thematic depth is superior.” Federico is an Award -Winning composer. In 2016, Federico Jusid was recognized as Composer of the Year by the Spanish Music Critics Association. He won three International Film Music Critics Association (IFMCA) awards for his music on the Spanish historical fiction series, Isabel, and won two additional IFMCA awards for his score on Carlos, Rey Emperador. Additionally, Federico received two Platinum Film Award nominations for scoring the critically acclaimed biographical film, Neruda and Salvador del Solar’s political thriller Magallanes. Federico has received dozens of international music awards for his music on more than sixty features and thirty TV series worldwide.
