    I've always liked the music used on Mission: Impossible, including the mysterious flute and drums cues for the covert operations scenes.

    The British TV show THE AVENGERS had 2 different themes: the first theme was by John Dankworth (for the video-taped serials between 1961 & 1964). After this series began shooting in film for broadcast in America, composer Laurie Johnson wrote the theme which was used from 1965 through 1969 with variations per season (and yet again in 1976 for THE NEW AVENGERS).

    Many folks seem to single-out the episodes with Emma Peel (Diana Rigg) as the only version of THE AVENGERS to consider ... whereas the series as a whole had been done over the years with a variety of styles and leading ladies.

    I realize you are referring to Lalo Schifrin's theme for MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE, but some individual episodes were scored by other composers, too. The television industry's 'standard practice' (courtesy musicians unions' regulations) from those decades was to track 2/3 of the season's segments with the show's library cues of stock music.

    A typical TV series from the 1960s had about 8 episodes tailored with music specifically composed to underscore key elements of the series' story material. Thus, the style(s) of the dramatic incidental music could be recycled into the remaining segments of the season without further costly recording sessions.

    I've been admiring classic DOCTOR WHO since the early 1980s (when 'classic' WHO was the only WHO. ).

    My local PBS station aired Tom Baker serials from about '79 through 1983, then in '83 the station began to broadcast the Jon Pertwee series (in between runs of the 'new' seasons with Peter Davison).
    By 1985, the surviving William Hartnell segments began to air (very likely for the first ever time in America).

    I agree that DOCTOR WHO's early beginnings had an impressive roster of British composers who - in retrospect - were of the highest calibre. The first season alone (1963-1964) had 3 scores by Norman Kay, 2 by Tristram Cary and 1 apiece by Richard Rodney Bennett and Stanley Myers! Could any such line-up of talent every be assembled thereafter?
    The '64/'65 season got Francis Chagrin to score one story, and by the '65/'66 season Tristram Cary returned for a mammoth 12-part serial (plus writing a ballad for WHO's western "The Gunfighters") and Humphrey Searle came aboard to score a historical satire called "The Myth Makers".

    I doubt that most classical music lovers realize just how many classically-trained modernist composers were doing TV and film music whilst simultaneously composing their 'serious'/absolute musical works.

    [P.S.: while we know this thread is about TV music, appreciation for '60s WHO leads to recommendations to explore the music for Hammer Films and Amicus productions from that same era (if one hasn't already begun to explore/appreciate such )]

    The beginning of Judge Judy: it's a rock version of the first movement of Beethoven's Fifth Symphony.

    Favorite is the music from Foyle's War on BBC. My 2nd choice is music for Downton Abbey, also on BBC.

    Current American TV music ... mehh - nothing much impresses me ... at least not yet. The older shows were much better for music ... St. Elsewhere, Banacek, Hill Street Blues, etc.

    The Sopranos variety is quite amazing.

    Apart from the ones mentioned here, I like "Six Feet Under" soundtrack. Here is the main title:



    The composer is Thomas Newman. He wrote many soundtracks (like American Beauty, The Green Mile, Road to Perdition, Cindirella Man...).

    There was a bloke who drank in my old local who was the spitting image of the bumbling sergeant Catarella. I like the series as well, apart from being unable to untangle the plot most of the time!
    '...a violator of his word, a libertine over head and ears in debt and disgrace, a despiser of domestic ties, the companion of gamblers and demireps, a man who has just closed half a century without a single claim on the gratitude of his country or the respect of posterity...' - Leigh Hunt on the Prince Regent (later George IV).
