Episode 11 The Doctor and the Haunted house

Doctor 2

Try headphones – I’ve been mucking about with the stereo thing again. For this episode we return to Gallifrey right back to where it all began. I finally found a track for the Dr Two theme reminiscent of Murray Gold once again – amazing! BIG HUGE THANK YOU to Alex Doan for allowing  non-profits to use for FREE*. ( definitely please buy some of their stuff if you like our work and want to support us by supporting them – I do )

we can’t use clowns

In the lead up to designing the soundscape for this I was listening to a tutorial episode of the radio drama podcast, which was aimed more at the script level, saying how creepy kids are – and we have four of them in this episode yay. They also mention for extra creepiness use a dead kid! but its G rated so I decided to go for a Scooby Doo sort of feeling by mixing in cartoon style sounds to break up the epic music and dark drones. Particularly useful is the reprise of the Bensound track which Trevor used in episode one for the two young timelords **

*Between Mirrors by Alex Doan courtesy of Alex Doan. It’s not a long track but I had something on my shortlist by Alex Mason*** which extends the feeling. Not being a musician I have no idea why it seems to fit – tempo? key? strings? all of the above?
