“We are at the very beginning…”

Demon Records presents, exclusive to Record Store Day 2024, the complete narrated TV soundtrack of the Doctor Who story ‘The Edge Of Destruction’. This brand new audio presentation, making its debut in any format with this vinyl release, features unique linking narration by Carole Ann Ford. There’s also a bonus interview with Carole herself, in which she recalls playing Susan, the Doctor’s granddaughter, in the original TV episodes.

Side A

  • The Edge Of Destruction

Side B

  • The Brink Of Disaster

The vinyl boasts a picture disc Side A, showing the Ship’s melting ormolu clock from a pivotal scene in the story, and an exclusive Zoetrope Side B, depicting the TARDIS swirling across space and time (best experienced using a smartphone running a third-party stroboscope app). The 12” disc is presented in a stunning die-cut artwork outer sleeve.

Escaping from their previous adventure, the Doctor, Susan, Ian Chesterton (William Russell) and Barbara Wright (Jacqueline Hill) are inside the TARDIS when it appears to be taken over by an outside force. 2024 is the 60th anniversary of this two-episode story starring William Hartnell as the Doctor.

First broadcast on 8 & 15 February 1964, it was only the third ever Doctor Who serial to be shown. Doctor Who returns to BBC TV and Disney+ in Spring 2024 with Ncuti Gatwa in his first full series as the Fifteenth Doctor.

    Looks amazing, but it isn’t going to look too great alongside the others in the series. Personally I’d have preferred them to do it like the Collection and kept the same aesthetic.

      I understand that that’s an entirely subjective thing, and that the most important/best thing is that they’re still doing them at all. Just probably will mean I end up not getting this one.

    Breathtaking presentation.

    just when I thought we wouldn’t get any more Narrated soundtracks. We get a brand new never before released one.

    Gorgeous work and I love the story.

    (I really did think we would get a Tom Baker Narrated Target reading)
    Now where is Slipback Paired with One of the 90 min edited readings from the 90s read by Colin) )

    The only “must-have” for me from this year’s rather mediocre RSD list.

      Love those Zoetrope Vinyls, I think they look better than the Hologram ones.
