What’s The Opposite Of Spider-Man?

That haunting theme that morphs into a crescendo of hope as the wormhole bursts open. The comet, and the tinkle of the tail, before we take an age to find the station in the dark isolation of space. It just screams the tone of the show.


And if that theme isn’t enough to get stuck in your ears, it’s no surprise that this one has been echoing around my head since we recorded the episode.
