“There goes my TARDIS!”

Demon Records celebrates David Tennant and Catherine Tate’s partnership as the Doctor and Donna with two audio-exclusive stories, read by the actors themselves.

In Pest Control, read by David Tennant, the Doctor and Donna face monstrous insects and a ruthless robot exterminator when the TARDIS is lost in battle on a distant planet. The Doctor sets off in pursuit of his craft, while Donna finds herself accepting a commission in the Pioneer Corps. Something is transforming soldiers into monstrous beetles – and she could be the next victim.

In The Forever Trap, read by Catherine Tate, the duo find themselves imprisoned in a complex of luxury apartments in space, and neighbours to a terrifying assortment of aliens. Deadly mobs wage battle in the corridors and on the stairwells, and the travellers must cross their paths as they search for the ultimate authority. Who, or what, lies at the heart of the Edifice?

This stunning box set, with an illustrated lift-off lid, features 6 x 140g vinyl LPs – three in Transparent Red and three in Transparent Yellow – each housed in a unique inner sleeve. A four page booklet features sleeve notes by authors Peter Anghelides and Dan Abnett, who reflect on the process of writing for the Tenth Doctor and Donna, and how they regard the stories 17 years later.

Now for the first time on vinyl, accompanied by original sound design and Murray Gold’s Series 4 arrangement of the familiar theme music, these two high-octane adventures are a reminder of the excitement, humour and magical wonder of Doctor Who.

    The Vinyls reminds me of some Rubarb and Custard Sweets I used to enjoy as a Kid. Happy Days.

    I think they’re getting a bit carried away with these box sets. 10 LPs for the Tom Baker Nest chronicles which were on 5 CDs, and now 3 LPs to tell 2 CDs worth of narrated story. Id rather have more sountracks

      2 CDs each story

      Over 4 hours for both I think it’s forever trap that’s the longest 130 mins 2hrs 10 . Lps take up around 18 mins of music anymore and the fidelity goes a bit . Spoken word you could get 22 mins at a big push without too much problem. Say 20 mins per side 120 mins
