The Creeping Death Vinyl LP ASDA Exclusive

Following the sell-out success of Big Finish Productions Doctor Who stories on vinyl in 2018, the audio company has announced another exclusive collaboration with ASDA supermarket.

ASDA will launch Doctor Who: The Creeping Death starring David Tennant and Catherine Tate on Friday 24th May 2019. It will be released as a Limited Edition run of 1,000 copies on neon green vinyl – only available in the UK.

London, 1952, and a deadly smog envelops the capital. But something even more dangerous – and alien – is hiding within the mists. When the Doctor and Donna get lost in the fog, they find a motley group of Londoners trying to make their way home. Soon the stakes are raised as death creeps along fume-choked streets, and not everyone will make it out alive…

David Tennant portrayed the Doctor on screen from 2005 until January 2010, returning to star alongside Matt Smith and John Hurt in the 50th Anniversary Special, The Day of the Doctor, in 2013.

Catherine Tate made her debut as Donna Noble in December 2006, and after a series and two Christmas specials, she made her last appearance alongside David on the 1st January 2010. Their on-screen partnership is generally regarded as one of the great high-points of the enduring Doctor Who phenomenon.

The Creeping Death, written by Roy Gill, is one of three stories in the latest volume of the Tenth Doctor’s audio adventures. Doctor Who – The Tenth Doctor Adventures Volume Three (Limited Edition) which is also being released in May.

Roy Gill said: “Being asked to write for David Tennant and Catherine Tate was already a huge thrill, but how awesome to hear The Creeping Death will be getting a vinyl release too! I think this nineteen-fifties tale of a band of London misfits against whatever-it-is that lurks in the smog will work beautifully on a neon green LP!”

“I’m a big vinyl fan already – I share my flat with three record decks, goodness knows how many records, and one long-suffering partner – so I’m super-eager to get my hands on a copy!”

Doctor Who – The Tenth Doctor Adventures Volume Three (Limited Edition) is available for pre-order now as a five-disc CD collector’s edition – limited to 5,000 copies – in deluxe bookset packaging for only £35, with the download version for £25 (available on release).

Big Finish Productions is a production company and publisher who produce audio CDs, downloads and books. Best known for its range of Doctor Who plays (with its many spin-offs), Big Finish also produces a wide range of audio drama and audiobooks featuring the characters from Blake’s 7, Dark Shadows, Captain Scarlet, Callan, The Avengers, The Prisoner, Survivors and The Omega Factor, as well as classics such as HG Wells, Shakespeare, Sherlock Holmes, The Phantom of the Opera and Dorian Gray.

They also produce original creations such as Graceless, Charlotte Pollard and The Adventures of Bernice Summerfield, plus the Big Finish Originals range featuring seven great new series including ATA Girl, Cicero, Jeremiah Bourne in Time, Shilling & Sixpence Investigate and Blind Terror.

CDs and downloads are available from the Big Finish website www.bigfinish.com

    Wanted to put out there the surprisingly good service I got from Asda Customer Services when I called them – I’m autistic, so going to the supermarket full stop is a major issue for me, but we were advised to call their customer services for help.
    By the time I managed to get through, local stores had already sold out, but they kindly checked a store near where my brother works (a good sixty miles away!) and agreed to put one aside for me/him providing it was collected by 9am on the Saturday. He had no issues picking it up and the staff on the phone were very patient and did what they could to help. Very unexpected given my less than stellar experiences with Sainsbury’s.

    PS – to the person saying the prices settle down – I can’t find a copy of Infamy of the Zaross on vinyl anywhere, eBay, Discogs etc., no one seems to be selling it for ANY price, let alone at a (relatively) sensible price.

    All that’s matters to Asda and Big Finish is profit they don’t care if you buy one or one hundred copies .

      Asda and Big Finish were happy to make a small profit unlike those that buy and then re-sell adding £20 plus. Given it was supposed to be an Asda exclusive anything to make it harder for this kind of thing ought to done.

    • booboo

      May 27th, 2019 - 4:20pm

      It is an ASDA exclusive but neither them or Big finish can stop them being sold on the secondary market, especially as people have pointed out even if they limit to one per customer determined ebayers just have to take a couple of mates or go thorough the self service checkouts where no one will notice.

      If they can not allow more than one through then fine but that may cause problems for staff and ASDA and other stores so they might think its not worth the hassle doing these releases at all in the future.

      Its been going on for years its something people will have to get used to.

      Also HMV sold theirs online so it wasn’t so much of an issue.

    I don’t have an ASDA store near me and didn’t want to miss out on getting this so I had to get one off eBay, does anyone know what the original price in ASDA is?

      RRP is £15

    • Melody

      May 26th, 2019 - 1:08am

      Thanks, ok unfortunately I’ve had to pay a bit more than that, but I think I’ve gotten off lightly seeing as I’ve seen people listing this vinyl on eBay for £100, it is crazy!

    • Ollie

      May 26th, 2019 - 7:00am

      I had to do the same to get the Infamy of the Zaross LP; I I paid around £35 for mine. The only other way around it is to write to Big Finish and see what they can say about adding the stipulation that the LPs are sold in store one per customer. However, saying that, it may not be their decision to make.

    • Anonymous

      May 26th, 2019 - 9:58am

      The price will stabilise soon at around £30. Dont be tempted to panic buy, it will still be obtainable on Ebay in the future.

    • prototype dalek

      May 27th, 2019 - 10:41am

      If you seen other Vinyl’s like energy of the Daleks and Zygon Hunt, the price’s go back down to RRP after a while when the sudden demand has gone

    • MJS

      May 27th, 2019 - 11:02am

      Maybe the answer to this is for BF & Demon to then issue smaller batches of the release but on standard black vinyl. So even if you can’t get the ltd edition, you can still get the record? I know there’ll be a cost issue but surely fans will pay a little more to at least have it? It doesn’t HAVE to be on heavyweight vinyl!

      Its part of the course now and has been for some time and not just Doctor Who.

      Demand is only so far and upping the quantities will only result in unsold or slow moving stock which in turn will lead to less interest from retailers.

    • Rob W

      May 25th, 2019 - 8:28pm

      Asda and Big Finish should be made aware of this. They should or ought to be able to stop this. If enough people contact them things might change.

    • Anonymous

      May 25th, 2019 - 9:04pm

      Why would they change it when they can make money? It is just how business works. Besides, what would they do, stop people at the counter and demand they return their extra copies? It just will not happen. The idea of an exclusive is that not everyone will get it, making it special. Like booboo says, this happens in many different shopping ranges. People just need to accept that not everything is going to be fair when it comes to merchandiase. It just is not how the world works

    • Ollie

      May 26th, 2019 - 7:04am

      Contact Big Finish and see if they have any say in the LPs being sold one per customer. They probably don’t but it’s worth a shot.

    • Rob W

      May 26th, 2019 - 9:14am

      This was an Asda ‘exclusive’ not eBay’s. Asda and Big Finish should have at least printed the price on the sticker £14.99. VAT is also not being paid by the eBay sellers.

    • Gareth Pugh

      May 26th, 2019 - 11:23am

      Thing is, booboo and Anonymous (in this sub-thread) are right. The point of these kind of ‘chase’ edition releases is about creating a buzz on social media to (for Big Finish) draw attention to their DW range as a whole, and (for ASDA) to drive footfall to stores – in the hope you might buy a few other things when you’re there and, if you’re not a regular ASDA customer yet, maybe like what you see of the store and go there again in future. Unlike direct sales of their monthly releases, for Big Finish the priority is not about making sure as many fans who wants one can get one – it really is about the scarcity and the bants it drums up as a result – an awareness raiser more than a money-raiser.

    • Rob W

      May 26th, 2019 - 4:51pm

      Asda missed a trick here then, given some have stumped up £35. They could have made an extra 20 thousand pounds.

    There is a white space on the back where the number should be, so have got my fine line marker pen out and written “1 of 1000” in it very clearly. Is it more collectable now?

      Hilarious.

      On a more serious note, they did drop the ball not having those filled in, it created the potential for people to get unsuspectingly scammed by someone selling the item marked 1/1000. Big Finish very rarely mess something up, and I think this is one of those occasions.

    • Bryan Simcott

      May 26th, 2019 - 12:13pm

      Not Big Finish`s problem. Demon Music replied, that this was LTD/Exclusive and was never numbered. Because other releases had numbers, people seem to have assumed ,for this release.

      I was handed a copy and self serviced. At that time of the morning, there are few to no, tills open. also scanning the bar code, also deactivated the security Tag.

      It is what it is. I feel very sorry for people with Disabilities,or no ASDA nearby, but The only thing that could help, if stores put stock out At 10am (set a time) ,but i can not see this working either. I am sure Store managers were perplexed at the sales of this, when they have huge artists still on the shelf.
