The Abominable Snowmen comes to vinyl in a narrated full-cast TV soundtrack adventure.

Demon Music Group presents The Abominable Snowmen (including an Amazon Exclusive version), a classic six-part adventure starring Patrick Troughton as the Doctor and introducing one of his most popular enemies, the Yeti. The records will be released on October 4th (originally 27th September) 2019 and are available now for pre-order. RRP £51.99.

“The Daleks’ Master Plan and The Evil of the Daleks have proved hugely popular on vinyl and we’re very pleased to be following up these releases with the story of another classic Doctor Who enemy. The Yeti may be fluffier than the Daleks but they’re certainly no less terrifying!” Ben Stanley, Head of Product & Marketing, Demon Music Group

Standard edition: 3 x 180g heavyweight white vinyl

Amazon exclusive edition: 3 x 180g heavyweight ‘Tibetan Blizzard’ vinyl

In this classic ‘lost’ adventure (only one of the six episodes still remains in the BBC archives), first shown on BBC TV between September and November 1967, the TARDIS materialises in the Himalayan mountains, circa 1930, where Professor Travers has been trying to track down the legendary abominable snowmen. The Doctor soon discovers that the Yeti do exist, but as the servants of a terrible force – the Great Intelligence.
Presented across 3 x heavyweight 180g pieces of vinyl, this narrated TV soundtrack evokes another classic Doctor Who adventure in all its aural magnificence. The haunting sounds of the windswept Himalayas, the hynoptic chanting of Tibetan monks, the insistent bleeping of the Yeti control devices, and the terrifying roar of the creatures themselves are all accompanied by the eerie sonics of Ron Grainer and Delia Derbyshire’s classic theme tune.

Written by Mervyn Haisman and Henry Lincoln, this was the Yeti’s debut TV appearance, and they would soon return to menace the Doctor in another adventure. Linking narration is provided by Frazer Hines (Jamie) and the cast includes Deborah Watling as Victoria, Jack Watling as Professor Travers, David Spenser as Thonmi and Wolfe Morris as Padmasambhava.
