Doctor Who: Hornet’s Nest Tom Baker Signed Edition Vinyl LP (Very Limited)

Available to order while stocks last from

These boxes are strictly limited to just 1200 Worldwide. 600 units will be available in the UK, 300 in the USA, 50 in Australia and 250 for the rest of world.

On limited edition vinyl for the very first time, Demon Records presents the unique audio adventure that first instigated Tom Baker’s remarkable return to the role of the Doctor.

An exclusive, frameable portrait of the Fourth Doctor – every copy of which has been individually signed by Tom Baker himself – is just one of the treats inside this stunningly designed package.

An impressive, die-cut removable outer sleeve houses a hornet-adorned lidded box, inside which are 10 individual, exquisitely illustrated LP sleeves featuring full cast and credits for each story.

Also included is The Doctor’s Journal, a large 16-page full colour booklet detailing the Time Lord’s notes and illustrations from his battles against the hornets.

Presented across 10 x 140g alternating Yellow and Black vinyl discs, this full-cast audio adventure by Paul Magrs stars Tom Baker as the Doctor, with Richard Franklin as Mike Yates and Susan Jameson as Mrs Wibbsey.

The supporting cast includes Daniel Hill, Christian Rodska, Michael Maloney, Stephen Thorne and Rula Lenska, and sound design is by Simon Power, alongside the familiar Doctor Who theme from the BBC Radiophonic Workshop.

  • LP 1&2: The Stuff of Nightmares
  • LP 3&4: The Dead Shoes
  • LP 5&6: Circus of Doom
  • LP 7&8: A Sting in the Tail
  • LP 9&10: Hive of Horror

When Captain Mike Yates is reunited with his old friend the Doctor, he finds him besieged by a powerful race of insects intent on global domination. As the Time Lord recounts his recent adventures across the centuries, it becomes clear that the fate of mankind is in the hands of the Doctor, Mike and the peculiar Mrs Wibbsey…

    Good grief. That’s a huge surprise . I assume the others Serpent and Dragon will come along at some point. 10 discs seems bigger than has been the case.

    Lovely designs and Artwork though. The LTD nature and Tom Signing ,make this must.

    I want Slipback special edition .

    Poor Tom having to sign all these!
    It reminds me of when I was a kid, in the big John Menzies in Princes Street, Edinburgh, you could hardly find a Target paperback he hadn’t signed! They must have made him sign hundreds and hundreds of the things!
    This does look like an amazing release. Lovely design!

      Strangely enough Tom’s signature seems to attract a price – But you would think it would be practically worthless considering he is the most prolific signer of all the Doctors? Now try finding a William Hartnell signature on a Doctor Who piece of ephemera: Few & far between & very costly if you do find one!

      NOTE: I’m not knocking Tom as I have 3 signed items by him already.

    Big price. At first I thought this was for the whole Nest Cottage saga and now I’m wondering if the other entries will follow eventually. If they do and the price remains the same, it will be a very expensive decision.

    This looks great, the price not so much though.

      Booboo, can’t remember this at all yet some of these comments are old.
      Am I right in saying this was posted before without a cover?

    Steep, and I don’t think it needs 10 LPs, but I love it. Ordered.

    Thanks for putting this up Booboo! As soon as I saw it here, I immediately clicked the Amazon link & ordered a copy. I doubt this will last long & it’s a wonderful package. Now for the long wait …
