The Theme Tune

I'm curious to know what people think of the Torchwood theme tune, as written by Murray Gold?

Already I've heard negative comments, but to be completely honest, I love it and think it's great. It somehow manages to sum up everything that Torchood is in a matter of seconds.

Please, post your responces in the comments section.

But do think the theme tune is perfect.

I like the tune, but it's very short. It is very reminisant of the Requiem for a Dream theme, at least that is what I think.

Idem on the link.

I heard it only once of course (and it IS very short), but I had my ears pricked for it yesterday.

It's not easy, being so hyped and having to top oo-ee-oo! But I loved it instantly.

I absolutely love it personally. Also I'm grateful the credits-intor-opening is very short- I hate openings, they're pointless to me XD So yeah, love it.

I liked the theme tune (my link works?), and although its nothing catchy- sounds just right for torchwood!
Plus, I think they've tried to make it very different from the Doc Who them tune.

Loved it when I first heard it in AOG where it stood out as being so different from the rest of the score. Needs to be a lot longer, as does the title sequence but it makes a great ring tone

Love the "tune". One cannot really call it a TUNE but it is very appropriate for the show. Just right.
I've got it downloaded on my PC - lucky me!

Thought it was pretty good - in fitting with a fast-paced, action-filled drama. Also isn't some of the incidental music a slight re-working of the music from Army of Ghosts/Doomsday, which was of course set in Torchwood? Sounds like it anyway.

i think its pretty sound, but it needs to be longer and maybe a bit more catchy, because every time i listen to it, i love it but then i forget it about a minute later!!
