I'd figured out awhile ago that The Eleventh Doctor's theme music (as heard here) is in 7/4 time, a fairly uncommon time signature. I figured this was done because 4/4 time is the most common for western music, and since you're subconsciously expecting measures in multiples of four beats, 7/4 time feels like it's "missing" a beat. Thus, it gives this feeling of running forward so fast you're on the verge of stumbling over your own feet — very appropriate for Eleven, who's easily the flailiest of the doctor's I've seen so far (1, 9, 10, and 11). But I just realized another likely reason: 7+4=11. Is that cool or what?

Incidentally, Reason #178 Why I'm Glad I Live Alone: Being able to wander about my apartment, listening to my iPod and making little orchestra conducting motions without anyone giving me funny looks.
