Exclusive Doctor Who Evil of the Daleks 7″ EP


DWM 539 is available as a strictly limited Deluxe Edition, exclusive to WH Smith.

The Exclusive and Deluxe edition Lp’s are available to order from

The new issue of Doctor Who Magazine is being made available as a strictly limited Deluxe Edition. As well as the regular magazine, the Deluxe Edition also contains a 28-page supplement, audio downloads, a bookmark and a 7” vinyl EP, specially created by Demon Records.

The EP features rare and bonus tracks from The Evil of the Daleks, a 1967 production widely regarded as one of the greatest stories from Doctor Who’s classic era. The film recordings of all but one episode of this seven-part serial are lost from the BBC archive.

These tracks make their vinyl debut on this EP, and will not be included in Demon’s vinyl box set of The Evil of the Daleks, which is released on 12 July.



  • Finale of The Evil of the Daleks (without narration)


  • 1. Excerpt from The Evil of the Daleks Episode 1 (repeat broadcast, 8 June 1968)
  • 2. The Final Destruction: Telecine FX Montage A
  • 3. The Final Destruction: Telecine FX Montage A
  • 4. The Final Destruction: Telecine FX Montage A
  • 5. Dalek Voice Session

Marcus Hearn, the editor of Doctor Who Magazine, says: “I can still hardly believe it. An actual vinyl record – not a flexi disc – as part of the new issue! We’ve worked closely with our friends at Demon on this exclusive EP. I hope it will appeal not just to Doctor Who fans, but to anyone with an interest in the history and development of electronic sound design. We’re thrilled to include an item that has been specially made for us, and feel sure that this limited-edition pressing will become highly collectable.”

Ben Stanley, Head of Product and Marketing at the Demon Music Group, says: “This was a great opportunity to partner up with Doctor Who Magazine and promote our forthcoming Evil of the Daleks box set. Those who have already bought The Daleks’ Master Plan, Galaxy 4 or Destiny of the Daleks will know a lot of love has gone into creating these fan-led packages, and The Evil of the Daleks is no different. The 7” features some cool extra content which complements the box set. It will even fit in the box!”

Doctor Who Magazine issue 539 is on sale Thursday 30 May. The Deluxe Edition is available exclusively from WH Smith and price £9.99.

      Hopefully it’ll become rare and I can at least make some money back from it.

      Well, there are 5000 copies of this Deluxe edition, and 1,500 copies of the Evil box set that this is sort of a companion to (1000 amazon version and 500 ‘standard’ red) so it might not have that much demand but you never know.

      The material featured on this vinyl release consists of the extras from the dalek CD boxset release of evil of the daleks. The final 5 tracks on the CD were extras, they are reproduced on this vinyl to go with the full seperate release of the main story
