Doctor Who – Galaxy 4 – (Limited to 2500 copies)

Presented across 2 x Heavyweight 180g pieces of Orange with Purple 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 menacing chirrup of the squat, metallic Chumbley robots and the atmospherics of the Rills’ spaceship, the story is alive with weird and wonderful sound.

Written by William Emms, the story presents a traditional morality tale with a twist. Linking narration is provided by Peter Purves (Steven) and the cast includes Stephanie Bidmead as Maaga. The final episode leads into the prelude to the epic adventure The Daleks’ Master Plan (just released on Demon Records). The film recordings of all but one episode of this story are lost from the BBC archives.

    Is this the audio from the episode or a narration/spoken novelisation?

      ‘this narrated TV soundtrack evokes a classic Doctor Who adventure‘

      It’s the Tv soundtrack (including dialogue) with ‘action’ / bridging narration by Peter Purves. This is the CD from the ‘Lost Episodes’ CD now on vinyl, basically. Ditto ‘Destiny’, which has been on CD for a bit too. But it’s not to be confused with the Audiobook range (which are readings of the Target novelisations).

      £29.99 (and the same for Destiny). 2,500 copies of each available on Record Store Day (13th April) , any surplus then available from indie record stores from a week later (20th April). Can’t be sold online until then. As Booboo says, she me overstocks of 2018s RSD special releases eventually made it to Amazon.

      Tomb Of The Cybermen (RSD 2018, Silver Vinyl Limited Edtion of 3,000) can bought from Amazon for £22.56, so they don’t all sell out.You just need to try and find out which (if any) releases your local indie stire may be getting…

      any surplus may go to Amazon, the whole idea of this is to support independent record stores in the first instance
