From Doctor Who: Series 4

Track 21 from the “Doctor Who Original Television Soundtrack Series Four”. This cue plays during Donna Noble’s final moments in the parallel universe of “Turn Left”, and during key moments in “The Stolen Earth” and “Journey’s End” of Doctor Who Series Four. It finally accompanies Donna’s heartbreaking fate aboard the TARDIS in one of “Journey’s End“‘s final scenes.

    Favorite season, favorite companion, favorite Doctor, favorite writer, favorite piece of music, favorite ''Oh My God this can't be happening'' moment. It's the most sad moment in the series for me, but also so beautifuly written and acted and timed that I can't hate Davies.

    Damn it, I'm still not over what happened to Donna. RTD, you may be an even bigger troll than the Moff. This piece is absolutely staggering. I have no idea how Murray does it, but just about every emotional moment in the show is matched with a composition that is objectively perfect and beyond reproach.

    Possibly one of the worst fates to happen to a companion of the Doctor. Murrey Gold definitely excels at expressing the emotion inherent in Donna's final fate.
