Big Finish Spare Parts Vinyl LP

Available to order from


The story of the genesis of the Cybermen. One of our listeners’ favourite releases. Dark, moving and terrifying…

On a dark frozen planet where no planet should be, in a doomed city with a sky of stone, the last denizens of Earth’s long-lost twin will pay any price to survive, even if the laser scalpels cost them their love and hate and humanity.

spare parts 1s

And in the mat-infested streets, around tea-time, the Doctor and Nyssa unearth a black market in second-hand body parts and run the gauntlet of augmented police and their augmented horses.

And just between the tramstop and the picturehouse, their worst suspicions are confirmed: the Cybermen have only just begun, and the Doctor will be, just as he always has been, their saviour…

    This is one of the first cd’s by Big Finish that I remember owning and this is undoubtedly one of the greatest covers that I’ve seen, as well as being one of the best stories!

    I can’t wait to see the cover for this. Also, do you think this was their plan from the start, determining fan’s two favourite Big Finish audios and making them into vinyls?
