‘An Adventure in Space and Time’ soundtrack album review

Now this is a real treat. Edmund Butt’s score to Mark Gatiss’ terrific Doctor Who drama. You all remember An Adventure in Space and Time, don’t you? It’s the 90 minutes last year that made several generations of Who fans get all moist-eyed and nostalgic, some for a time they weren’t even alive in.
