The 25 Best TV Theme Songs of the 21st Century, Ranked
Amidst the chorus of people saying that TV is better than it’s ever been, you’ll always find one person lamenting the decline of the theme song. While it’s true that the days of minutes-long intros with original songs and catchy melodies might be in the past, there’s no denying that shows are still finding memorable (and in a few cases, iconic) ways to open each episode.

'An Adventure in Space and Time' review: "A gorgeous piece of drama"

You can't rewrite history - not one line. But you can transform it into a gorgeous piece of television drama, or at least a writer/producer as canny and talented as Mark Gatiss can.

There's so much to admire, from Edmund Butt's brilliant score to Dave Arrowsmith's gorgeous production design, with its pinpoint accurate reproductions of costumes, the Tardis exterior and, best of all, the control room - perfect in every detail, right down to the green hue of the console.
