The Doctor soon discovers that the Yeti do exist, but as the servants of a terrible force – the Great Intelligence.

Presented across 3 x heavyweight 180g pieces of vinyl, this narrated TV soundtrack evokes another classic Doctor Who adventure in all its aural magnificence. The haunting sounds of the windswept Himalayas, the hynoptic chanting of Tibetan monks, the insistent bleeping of the Yeti control devices, and the terrifying roar of the creatures themselves are all accompanied by the eerie sonics of Ron Grainer and Delia Derbyshire’s classic theme tune.

Written by Mervyn Haisman and Henry Lincoln, this was the Yeti’s debut TV appearance, and they would soon return to menace the Doctor in another adventure. Linking narration is provided by Frazer Hines (Jamie) and the cast includes Deborah Watling as Victoria, Jack Watling as Professor Travers, David Spenser as Thonmi and Wolfe Morris as Padmasambhava.

    My exclusive addition was due for delivery today, pre-ordered in plenty of time, and now I have just checked and it says delivery date to be confirmed… as if it is out of stock or something like that, Mildly concerning

    Both links seem to go to the deluxe edition? Has the exclusive one sold out?

    The space between me hearing that this existed and me pre ordering it was about 20 seconds. This is my favourite missing story.

    Although this one seems more interesting, I try not to give Amazon money unless necessary.

      Amazon have always had The Dalek Etching. As these have no Etching , its all down to what the Vinyl looks like.

      even if Skaro Swirl looked little like the promo image 🙂 Snow Blizzard sounds great though, than White.
