Record Store Day 2018 The Tomb Of The Cybermen

Please visit to locate your nearest participating store

Exclusive to RSD2018, The Tomb Of The Cybermen is a classic Doctor Who story from 1967 featuring the second Doctor Patrick Troughton. Previously unreleased on vinyl, the story is two hours long spread across 2LP heavyweight silver vinyl, and featuring newly commissioned gatefold artwork, sleeve notes and on set photos. The Doctor faces the dreaded Cybermen in the digitally remastered soundtrack of the classic BBC TV story, with linking narration by Frazer Hines.

It has legendary status amongst Whovians as the serial was believed lost for many years until discovered in Hong Kong in 1992.The action of The Tomb of the Cybermen follows directly on from that of the preceding serial The Evil of the Daleks, with the Doctor and Jamie welcoming the newly orphaned Victoria aboard the TARDIS. Commissioned as Doctor Who and the Cybermen Planet, this was the third encounter between the Doctor and his half-human, half-machine foes.

It was co-written by Kit Pedler, who devised the Cybermen in The Tenth Planet, and Gerry Davis, the story editor who had helped develop them. This is limited to 3000 units worldwide.

    How many versions of stories are who fans willing to buy!
    This has been : 1, a hardcover book, 2.paperback edition of hardcover 3. paperback with new cover 4. Audio cassette 5.Vhs video 6. Audio cd 7.dvd 8. Talking book cd 9. Special edition dvd
    And now 10. an album! But that’s 3 versions of the same book, plus a talking book version, 3 versions of the audio soundtrack and 3 versions of the actual episodes. I personally had the two paperback versions, audio cassette, vhs and both dvds! Effectively I’ve bought the same story 6 times! I think i must be mad! (I currently own the reprint book and dvd se as i had a clear out after all you can’t keep everything)

      You’ve got me wrong boo boo, of course lp collectors will buy it, I’m sure it will be very nice, i was just saying there has been a lot of versions. Note I’ve bought multiple versions of this already. I never said it should not be released.

      Oh and a mate of mine is buying this. He doesn’t have a turntable. He’s only buying it to have it on a shelf.

      What’s wrong with that?

      Nothing. I keep saying I’m not complaining. How many versions is a genuine question. I’m curious to know which story individuals on here have the most versions of? For me it’s shada, bbc novel, bbc script book, new zealand novel, 2 versions on dvd i also used to have the video, and the big finish cd but no longer have those. So i own 5 versions of shada. Nothing wrong with it. Nothing odd, it’s what we collector’s do.

    Ok… slightly weird. But the artwork is neat to be fair.

      Thank you. (I did the artwork so I’m a bit biased)

      Oh congratulations! While I’m not interested in the vinyl itself (I spend a lot of money on things DW, but even I have trouble justifying that to my wallet :P) but the artwork is utterly gorgeous.

    How much does it cost?

      Well, Record Store Day releases aren’t cheap – they are often more than you would expect to pay for unlimited vinyl releases of things via Amazon for example. I think my Pescatons double-LP (it came paired with the BBC DW Sound Effects LP from the 70s, on coloured vinyl) last year was about £27 or £28
