Doctor Who theme song gets a Western twang

Show composer plays a slide guitar - sneak peek at Season 7 theme?

Murray Gold, who has been the Doctor Who's musical director/composer since the 2005 reboot, has posted a new video on his YouTube channel, in which he plays the show's theme song on a slide guitar. It has a very Southern (think "Dukes of Hazzard") quality to it, but also a very Old West feel. This makes sense, considering one of the upcoming shows in Series 7 is the Doctor, Amy and Rory visiting an Old West-type town. Enjoy, y'all.
