Doctor Who – Destiny Of The Daleks – (Limited to 2500 copies)

Presented across 2 x Heavyweight 180g pieces of Red with Blue Splatter Vinyl, this narrated TV soundtrack evokes a classic Doctor Who adventure in all its aural magnificence. From the eerie sonics of Ron Grainer & Delia Derbyshire’s theme tune, and the familiar ‘wheezing, groaning’ of the TARDIS, through to the bass thrum of the Daleks’ headquarters, and their clamorous shriek of “Exterminate! Exterminate!” the story is alive with weird and wonderful sound.

Add to that the sparkling dialogue of a script written by Terry Nation and script edited by Douglas Adams, and you have 2 hours of joyful sci-fi entertainment. Linking narration is provided by Lalla Ward (Romana) and the cast includes David Gooderson as Davros, Tim Barlow as Tyssan, Peter Straker as Commander Sharrel and Suzanne Danielle as Agella.


Exclusive to Record Store Day 2019, Demon Music presents a narrated full-cast TV soundtrack adventure starring Tom Baker as the Doctor, pitted against his arch-enemies the Daleks and their wizened creator, Davros. In this thrilling 4 part adventure, first shown on BBC TV in September 1979, the Daleks return to their home planet Skaro, scene of their defeat at the hand of the Doctor (Tom Baker) in Genesis of the Daleks. What – or who – have they returned for?

It soon becomes apparent that the ruthless scientist Davros, creator of the Daleks, may not be as dead as the Doctor assumed. When Romana (Lalla Ward) falls into the hands of the Daleks themselves, a life and death struggle begins to divert the Doctor’ s adversaries from their self-proclaimed destiny.

    After The Release of , Mission to the Unknown/Dalek`s Masterplan Vinyl Box set, This makes great sense. Its one of those Stories, That the Visual let down.

    I wonder if after nearly 50 Years, and multiple versions, we could get an exclusive Genesis of the Daleks complete 6 episode version?

    If DMP is the new Direction,for these releases, Then the packaging will be as superb,as the Audio product.

    Sounds like the old vinyl recording of Genesis of the Daleks narrated by Tom Baker. That made sense before the VHS and DVD release, but very retro today.

    Never quite seen the point of doing these for stories that still exist. On the other hand if they add some ring modulation to David Gooderson’s lines it might be worth it!

    So is this done like a novelisation reading, or more like a big finish audio?

      It’s literally just the soundtrack of the episodes, with Lalla Ward describing the visual scenes. So, in essence, it’s a missing episode soundtrack for a non missing episode. Like watching the DVD without the visuals.
