The press release states:
This release brings together the music of the last two Christmas specials broadcast on Christmas Day 2011 and 2012 and watched by a joint audience of close to 20m.
This ninth release in the series brings the full canon of Murray Gold’s prolific output up to date, eight years of elaborately created scores for one of the BBC’s most popular shows worldwide.
The soundtrack will be released on 21st October, and will be compromised of 32 tracks from the two specials.
