With a recent stash of missing episodes recovered, Doctor Who fans may feel their Christmas has come early. But the real thing hasn't yet. So put down that cracker. Don't let those advent calendars in the shops fool you: Noddy Holder won't be defrosted from his regenerative slumber for at least another month.
Shhh! Lock the door, close the curtains. We've got to talk about the soundtrack to Channel 4's violent cult conspiracy hit Utopia. Quietly.
You don't have a costly suit of cutting-edge armour, you don't have a robot butler, and chances are you don't even have a cool beard like Tony Stark (though really, if you do, good job sir).

Check under your bed before you put your headphones on, because here comes the Luther soundtrack. Or, to use its unwieldy full name, 'Idris Elba presents Luther: Songs and Score from Series 1, 2 & 3'. Whatever you decide to call it, it's music that DCI John Luther and his (now very wet) coat have solved crimes to.

The Hour. A show praised as much for its ability to make operating a typewriter while smoking and wearing houndstooth look cool as for the talent of the actors who were actually doing it. But what of its music?
Like a Kryptonian prison ship on the horizon, you can spot a Hans Zimmer track a mile off. Or rather, hear it a mile off.
A re-recording of the most iconic and daring double concept album ever? Is nothing sacred?
