Blimey! ScoreKeeper Has Five CDs of SHERLOCK (S.1) and DR. WHO (S.6) To Give Away!

Ay-up! ScoreKeeper here with a bloody-good soundtrack giveaway from all the way across the pond. Blimey! The BBC is the dog's bollocks having earned loyal fans abroad and here in the United States with smashingly-good programming.

Two of the best little buggers to come along in donkey's years are SHERLOCK (2010-2011) and DR. WHO (2005 - ). While I have yet to spy a single frame of either of these two shows for myself, I feel the love heaped upon them from friends, colleagues and compatriots. One of the many high-quality aspects shared by both of these shows is the music. SHERLOCK has been scored by British composers David Arnold and Michael Price and DR. WHO by the indefatigable Murray Gold.




I have in my possession five copies of the series one soundtrack for SHERLOCK and the series six soundtrack for DR. WHO courtesy of Silva Screen Records. These ten luvvly-jubbly CDs need new homes and eager ears who will cherish them well beyond the current monarchy. We can chin wag all blooming day but if you want a chance at snatching these titles for yourself it's easy peasy. Here's what you have to do…

Send me an email to using the subject: ROCKIN' THE BBC JAMZ! and include your name, mailing address, a valid email address, and your favorite BBC show of all time. I'll gather up all the entries and randomly select five winners who will receive both soundtracks to SHERLOCK and DR. WHO courtesy of Silva Screen Records. The deadline for submission is Sunday, June 3, 2012 at 11:59pm CST. Only one entry per person. International entries will be accepted. Duplicates will be discarded.

For more information regarding both of these titles, check out Silva Screen Records.

Now get stuffed, stop being a nancy boy and send in your email today. Cherrio!

    listen up scorekeeper

    by rakesh patel

    i'm going to apply. and this time i'm going to win. Capisce? as for my favourite bbc tv program.. well thats a bit difficult since i've grown up on uk tv. uh.. i'll go for an old school sci-fi with Sapphire and steel. No one else pick it!

  • I literally haven't watched a program on ITV in years, and whilst they've done pretty well stateside with downtoun abbey, they dont have a lot else going for them. they're quick to produce knock off of bbc programs. Whilst the bbc has shows like Sherlock, Dr Who, Torchwood and life on mars ITV has fuck all that i'd want to watch. If they got their act together with a decent enough show runner, it could well be a monster hit.

    the problem with Itv is that

    by emeraldboy

    they are in hoc to simon cowell. and ant and dec and piers morgan.

    What you talking about? ITV rules!

    by Axl Z

    Way better than the Big Bloated Corporation, Where else can you watch the best TV edits of Die Hard and Robocop every other week! And that ITV weather girl? SCHWING!

    all the more reason to divesify

    by rakesh patel

    Cowell has created his own serfdom with itv ant and dec and morgan are his bastard children to some extent ( sorry that sounds bitter and twisted and horrible... i don't actually mean it that way!) he can only be king for a period of time, tastes change. his red and clack showed that a previously winning combo isnt a guarantee and the voice is snapping at his heels for his idol shows. Morgan is his own man, hes got his long term gig in the states, he aint going no where. and the itv shows... well lets face it there's a limit to the amount of "uk celebs" that people want to hear about. I can totally see it moving stateside for more money bigger stars and greater kudos. ant and dec have long term future, but they cant afford to put all thier eggs in one basket which is exactly what itv have done. if cowell, morgan ant and dec were killed on the britians got talent coach., itv would be royally fucked. why the hell not make a series that could be sold to bbc america and make money if pitched correctly as the uk xfiles/fringe/ american horror story. They'd actually if done right have a marketable product, even if it got remade stateside ala being human, it would still be a revenue earner. Theres a foundation for a briliant mythology there. It just needs a great uk showrunner to pick it up, and uk tv wise i know of none expect for moffat Honestly. Who the fuck watches ITV?

    i just realised scorekeeper attempted Brit speak

    by rakesh patel

    well played old chap, jolly good show.

    That would be an interesting show to revive. Or indeed any of the 60's 70's t.v. Adam Adamant. Man in a suitcase. The Saint. Jason King. The Champions. But the one ITV show I would revive if I was king of the forest would be Hammer House of Horror. Oh yeah.

    the reason why itv is sub par.

    by Mick

    Back way back when there used to be four channels in the UK. Contrary to John Landis we had a bit more on than snooker. We had some great (sometimes cheesy) American imports such as knight rider and the a team all showing in prime time slots. Sometimes getting as high as ratings as the soaps. Hard to believe but TRUE. Comedians came from the pubs and clubs and honed their skills from years on the road. Playing all venues not just comedy clubs . Writers spent years writing for radio before doing t.v. It wasn't all gold. But you when it was it was magic. Morecambe and Wise. Two Ronnies. Steptoe and son. But something changed. It seemed been talented and having good ideas and been (shudder) popular wasn't enough. It wasn't about skill. Just on how much Cambridge cock you could suck.

    there's music in Sherlock?

    by sunwukong86

    I honestly had no idea, must not be memorable

    Left out my favorite BBC show ever... Not like I was going to win anything anyway. Yeah I'm feeling negative today.

    mr_x_ - Sapphire & Steel was an ITV show

    by Mister Vertue

    It never appeared on the BBC. Sorry to be a party pooper! Remember it quite clearly from my early 20's. Anyway, good luck to those entering this competition. Both of these are brilliant soundtracks. I regularly work with them on in the background for inspiration.

    YES Sherlock had a score...

    by gotilk

    and it really is a great one actually. Give it a listen! It's brilliant! The main theme alone is worth the price.

  • May 31, 2012, 11:56 a.m. CST

    I love the score to Sherlock. It's actually very catchy.

    by Joe Plumber

    In fact, theme music in British tv is far superior to American, IMO. Luther and Apparitions also have superb scores. Overall, I think British tv creators treat their shows like films.

  • May 31, 2012, 3:45 p.m. CST

    Great scores, both!

    by Dasan Sullivan

    Both are favorite shows of mine and their scores are stellar. I agree with Darth_Meh. The Sherlock theme is quite catchy, as is the "I Am The Doctor" from Matt Smith era Doctor Who. I'd love to get my hands on these!

    Considering us Brits are charged what is essentially an annual tax

    by Scrunchie-Scroochie

    for the privilege of owning a TV, (which funds the BBC) it had chuffing well better be good.
