Jesper Kyd-Home in Florence From 2:50 to the end of the song

Can somebody please tell me is that D dorian or D mixolydian? These two scales have all the same notes but one (third degree F to F#). But since the third degree is never used in this melody how can I know is it dorian or mixolydian? Is it both?

Well, seeing as it’s clearly a minor droning chord throughout, it’s Dorian. Working out whether it’s major or minor is pretty much the first step. Then if minor, you’ve got a few options; this is clearly Dorian due to that raised 6th.
