    Media Granada's Doctor Who homage?

    Hi!

    I saw a comment on Facebook linking the very beginning of Granada's soundtrack to Doctor Who's (1963) intro theme and it blew my mind when I listened to both back to back:

    Cool! The theme to Dr. Who has been a popular quote -- Pink Floyd used to reference it in live performances of "One of These Days" and "Cymbaline".

    Wow, nice catch! I would never have found the link unless I heard them side by side like this. Never heard the Dr. Who theme before, it's excellent!

    Ha, nice find. The old school game composers were quite comfortable with this kind of "homage".

    Interesting to compare that to the MT-32 version (a synth enhancement for the X68000, which was the original platform for Granada)

    The MT-32 has a much less emphasized bass on that intro, making that opening cadence sound more like light percussion.
