Doctor Who The Minds of Magnox Time Lord Victorious Audio CD

Available to order in the UK from

BBC Audio and Demon Records have announced that they will be publishing a brand new Doctor Who audio story for the Tenth Doctor as part of the Time Lord Victorious multi-platform adventure.

Doctor Who: The Minds of Magnox will be released on CD and Digital Download by BBC Audio on 3rd December and will be released on Vinyl by Demon Records on 4th December, marking the first simultaneous publication of a BBC Audio title across CD, digital and vinyl formats. The CD and digital editions will also feature a short Coda to the story.

The audio story is available to pre-order on Amazon (CD) and Audible now and will be available to purchase globally.

In this original story, the Doctor travels with Brian, the Ood assassin, to the planet Magnox, one of the greatest receptacles of knowledge the universe will ever know, and home to the Minds of Magnox. The Doctor needs to ask a vital question, but the answer is Grade 1 Classified. In order to gain an audience with the Minds of Magnox he must take a dangerous test.

Meanwhile, Brian gets involved with a criminal group and is asked to assassinate the Minds of Magnox. However, others also have the planet within their sights…

Doctor Who: The Minds of Magnox is written by Darren Jones and narrated by Jacob Dudman.

Darren Jones has written several previous Doctor Who stories for BBC Audio, including Doctor Who: Paradise Lost, Sleepers in the Dust and The Eye of the Jungle.

Jacob Dudman has previously read Doctor Who: Paradise Lost for BBC Audio, and has recently starred in Netflix’s The Stranger alongside Richard Armitage.

Michael Stevens, Doctor Who Range Editor for BBC Audio, said: “We’re delighted to tell this part of the epic Time Lord Victorious story, which is a unique and thrilling adventure for us all. Darren Jones has created the world of Magnox for the Tenth Doctor and Brian to visit, and Jacob Dudman brings it to life pitch-perfectly.”

    A shame that Tennant isn’t actually voicing this. Interested to see if Big Finish have him on their secret release for TLV.

    But how nice that the actual cd is only currently available through Amazon UK? I got that “we can’t ship to your location” message. Nice. Here we go again? I hope this becomes available stateside at a decent price. I still collect physical copies and a download won’t do it for me.

    WOW. I’m getting really stoked. Tennant had that staring presence that, perhaps of the Nu Who era, only Eccleston came close to. Iconic.

    More proof that the secret unannounced Big Finish Time Lord Victorious CD will feature the Tenth Doctor. If this non-Big Finish BBC Audio CD is featuring Ten, then it further enforces that he’s the central focus of Time Lord Victorious and is therefore needed to feature in all Time Lord Victorious releases.

      Well it’s not like he says the line
      “Time Lord Victorious” and it’s about him stopping death itself and being the baddie

      not sure on the logic of this one – the four Big finish announcements do not feature the 10th doctor, the DWM magazine does not feature the 10th doctor.

      I understand there is a secret release from Big finish which is no doubt where David Tennant has contributed but the other stories give no suggestion that 10 needs to feature in all, there is an underlining mystery to them all as the multiple synopsis suggests.
