I would guess that the theme in this case was made for the series, thus not otherwise available. It sounds like that to me.

The series is available on DVD region 2 from amazon.uk, so a region 2 or all region player is required. There is no soundtrack cd available

Being within current copyright - and UK issues - a score online would be unusual.

(The Brits seem to have a slew of hungry solicitors seek out copyright infringment)

I like the UCLA - Music Library for research - their MELVL - brought this up for your UK location.
