Doctor Who confirms important return for 60th anniversary
Doctor Who 60th anniversary and series 14 spoilers follow.
Doctor Who has confirmed composer Murray Gold will return for the show's 60th anniversary.
The BBC announced on Monday that Gold, who served as musical director and composer for Doctor Who between 2005 and 2017, will be back to work on showrunner Russell T. Davies' new episodes.
Gold has been nominated for a BAFTA Television Craft award six times throughout his career, including twice for his work specifically on Doctor Who.

Davies was instrumental in Gold joining Doctor Who ahead of its revival and he is now part of a larger reunion on the show that also includes producers Phil Collinson and Julie Gardner, as well as stars David Tennant and Catherine Tate.
Gold said today: "I’m so happy to be invited back for another joyful ride in the TARDIS. I didn’t think twice. Working with Russell and his team is just a pleasure."
Gold's musical score with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales will be heard in three episodes airing later this year on BBC One for the Doctor Who 60th anniversary, and he will continue to work on the show for its 14th season.

When Gold initially left the series during showrunner Chris Chibnall's tenure, he was replaced by Segun Akinola for the Jodie Whittaker-led episodes.
Gold's work will presumably include a new Doctor's theme for Ncuti Gatwa and companion actress Millie Gibson — and the show has already a music-themed villain to be played by Jinkx Monsoon.
Doctor Who returns later in 2023 on BBC One in the UK and Disney+ elsewhere. Meanwhile, in the US, the show airs on BBC America, with series 1-12 available on HBO Max. Classic Doctor Who streams on Britbox in the UK.
