Official Press Release…

Following the recent popularity of Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and League of Gentlemen releases on vinyl, Demon Music Group presents The Daleks’ Master Plan, a narrated full-cast TV soundtrack adventure. Starring William Hartnell as the First Doctor, in a battle against his archenemies, the vinyl will be released on 15thFebruary 2019 and is now available for pre-order. RRP £99.99.

‘We’re very excited about the first release in our ‘Vinyl Who’ collection – it’s a new way for fans to discover lost episodes of Classic Doctor Who.’ Ben Stanley, Head of Product & Marketing, Demon Music Group.

In this classic 12 part ‘lost’ adventure, first shown on TV from October 1965 to January 1966, the Daleks threaten to destroy the fabric of time itself. In their quest to control the Solar System, they have taken possession of the devastating Time Destructor. Determined to stop them, the Doctor steals the core of the weapon before he and his friends are pursued across time and space by his ruthless, powerful nemeses. From the eerie sonics of Ron Grainer & Delia Derbyshire’s original theme tune and the familiar ‘wheezing, groaning’ of the TARDIS, to soundscapes illustrating the jungles of Kembel and alien spacecraft, the story is brought to life by the unique sounds produced by the BBC’s Radiophonic Workshop.

Written by Terry Nation and Dennis Spooner, this is the longest single Doctor Who adventure ever made for television. Linking narration is provided by Peter Purves (Steven) and the cast includes Kevin Stoney as Mavic Chen, Nicholas Courtney as Bret Vyon, Jean Marsh as Sara Kingdom and Peter Butterworth as the Meddling Monk. The film recordings of all but three episodes of this story are lost from the BBC archives. The prelude episode Mission to the Unknown is presented on its own single-sided disc with a unique Dalek (exclusive edition) or TARDIS (standard edition) etched reverse.

    Not interested in vinyl but it’s great that this even exists. I hope The Daleks Master Plan gets an animation down the road.

    Would have been nice if it came with a code for a free digital download!
    Even if it was just for mission to the unknown!

      It wouldn’t come with one, the last time digital codes for episodes were offered (Exclusive to UK) were on the Series 7 Blu-rays. People didn’t like it and they removed it. If you want digital there’s always iPlayer.

      I think he means audio downloads. I do wish they’d do MP3 codes for the vinyls, like the big finish lps

      Martin, Vinyl costs a lot to make. The average price for one new vinyl is £20 and this set has 7.

      7 vinyls for a £100 in the current vinyl market Is a fair price. Comparing it with other vinyl it’s fair. Look at the recent pink Floyd reissue of pulse. That was £99 for 4 vinyl
