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.

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.”

    Appalled that there’s a coda on digital and CD but not vinyl? Would be nice for at least an MP3 code to come with it to allow access to the coda.

    Time Lord Victorious is really 10th Doctor heavy so far. My initial excitement is waining a little bit, I must admit. I’m still buying it all obviously lol

      True although, given that in the TV show, the ‘Time Lord Victorious’ concept was an affliction/crisis-of-spiralling ego that specifically happened to the 10th Doctor [in and, I’m guessing here, after ‘The Waters of Mars’], its kind-of understandable he would be the ‘anchor’ Doctor around which the others sort-of ‘guest’?

      Well it is all about 10 going evil

      Well, I don’t think the idea on TV was meant to be that he was turning evil, not quite. More that he was getting vigilante and developing a bit of a ‘Messiah complex’, and losing some of his compassion/finer judgement as a result? But who knows, maybe this ‘event’ of releases will take him deeper than that…

    That is a Beautiful Cover. WOW up there with the 5 Drs,Sun Makers & Visitation vinyl. Covers.

    Odd to choose an Audiobook, rather than a Full cast.(although Jacob Dudman does make it sound like one)

    Odder then to choose one, that has a Coda on the CD/Download but not on the Vinyl edition.

    Still, the more Timelord Victorious info we get, the more exciting it all seems to be getting.

    now as Mrs Croot says, First Original Vinyl since Pescatons. lets campaign for a Cassette Edition
