The Paradise Of Death & The Ghosts of N-Space Vinyl LP Exclusive Edition

Available to order in the UK from www.amazon.co.uk

The Collectors edition is available to order in the USA from www.amazon.com

Available exclusively to Amazon and limited to 500 copies, this exclusive edition is pressed on 3LP x 12″ 180g heavyweight space world Splatter vinyl and 3LP x 12″ 180g heavyweight spectral Splatter vinyl “we shan’t have any more trouble from that meddling Doctor!” Demon Records presents a double Bill of unique full-cast BBC Radio adventures for Jon pertwee as the third Doctor, based on the enduringly popular BBC TV series.

The paradise of death reunites the Doctor, Sarah Jane Smith and the brigadier for an adventure that takes them from hampstead heath to the far-flung planet of parrakon, where they face Dangers aplenty from the hostile freeth and tragan. In the Ghosts of n-space, which features Jon pertwee’s final performance as the Doctor, the time Lord is in sicily where he discovers trouble in the form of spectral monsters from another dimension. Presented across 6 x 180g pieces of vinyl, these two fast-paced adventures were specially written for radio by former Doctor who producer & writer Barry Letts.

Co-starring Elisabeth sladen and Nicholas Courtney, both also feature the incidental music and Doctor who theme arrangement of Peter howell of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop. Among the supporting cast for the stories are Maurice denham, Sandra dickinson, Harold innocent, Peter Miles, Richard Pearce, Harry Towb and Stephen Thorne. Accompanying the coloured vinyl LPs are full episode billings, cast and credits, and six illustrated sleeves that form a superb double-sided artwork Montage. Dummedy-dum, dummedy-dum, dummedy-dum, dum-dum….

    I’m pretty sad today. My money came to me and said that it was staying with a friend for a while. I watched her walk out to a limo and inside was the Doctor Who Vinyl collection. I never saw it again. l:( I think it got a limo from my previous purchases.

    As beautiful as these look and as desirable as these are, the price is rather unpalatable.

      It is two full stories. Paradise is 2 hours 30 mins and ghosts is three hours. For that kind of running time the price is about average.

    I wonder whether these will be the as-broadcast episodes, rather than the extended versions released on cassette and CD? The vinyl editions of the later Hitchhiker’s series followed that pattern – made for a nice exclusive.

    How were these made as I have never heard of them. Were they part of the doctor who radio series which rotated doctors every story or so?

      No these were specific BBC full cast radio plays and very good they are as well.

      The BBC has put big finish stuff on the radio these are not the same.

      I found I preferred Barry letts’ novels of these to the audios but the audios are still decent.

      I often find Amazon auto corrects to a word, the official press release is right though just not had time to do it

    I’ve always been aiming to add these stories to my CD collection, being something special, though it’s difficult to find them. I’ve even tried to find a way to make them on CD for myself, get the covers to fit CD cases and stuff.

    But getting them on vinyl works instead! 😀

    I gave heard of this one. Is it a big finish story. Also is it read by someone or performed by the original cast? Must be an older one.
