24 Silents. But we can all forget about them as soon as we look away. =)
I know exactly what you mean. I thought it could transition into either "I am the Doctor" or "All the Strange, Strange Creatures". Not sure if Murray Gold was directly influenced by John Debney's work or if they both just have a similar approach to the sort of sound Doctor Who should have. The modern series soundtrack is definitely in a similar style to the 1996 movie and they're both fantastic.
Though I'll point out that the Japanese music for Cell does have a quite a bit of character. I'm currently watching DBZ with the Kikuchi score for the first time and after a few episodes, Cell definitely has music that IS him in the same way that Faulconer's "Mysterious Youth" IS Trunks.
Ultimately, I still prefer Faulconer, but Kikuchi is not without his moments.
Well, after listening to the theme in the episode, a fair bit of googling, and a through auditory skim of my soundtrack collection (any througher and I wouldn't feel comfortable calling it a skim)...I have no idea what this theme is called! I'm shocked that it features so often and yet isn't easily found.
It's going to drive me insane now.
