The Tom Baker Collection Deluxe Gatefold Packaging Audio CD

Available to order from

“My life is an endless journey across the bounds of Space and Time…”

Now on CD, Demon Records celebrates Tom Baker’s unique portrayal of the famous Time Lord, almost 50 years after he made his screen debut in the role on 28 December 1974. This 4CD set blends thrilling audio drama with interviews and readings by the man himself.

Genesis of the Daleks is the original 1979 album version of the legendary TV serial, whilst Doctor Who and the Pescatons is the exclusive audio drama first released in 1976. Exploration Earth: The Time Machine was specially produced by BBC Schools Radio in 1976, and The State of Decay – available here on CD for the first time – is a unique audiobook reading from 1982. The collection is completed by Tom Baker in His Own Words, a selection of BBC radio appearances recorded in the 1970s and 1980s.

With an eye-catching Fourth Doctor front cover, the deluxe gatefold packaging houses 4 CDs in individual sleeves, plus a full colour booklet with cast, credits and tracklisting information. Co-starring Elisabeth Sladen, Ian Marter, Bill Mitchell and John Westbrook, and accompanied by the BBC Radiophonic Workshop’s familiar Doctor Who theme, these dramas, readings and interviews are a fitting way to celebrate one of the most celebrated Doctors of all.

      Which one was that? Only ones I can think of are the Hornets Nest, Demon Quest and Serpent Crest ones which have already been on CD

      Whofan44, there was a vinyl box set last year that contained Genesis of the Daleks, Exploration Earth, the Pescatons and State of Decay plus some Tom Baker interviews:

      This looks to be the CD version of that.

      MJS. State of Decay originl reading not Stones of Blood (Gosh I wish they would release one of Tom’s Target Readings on Vinyl Brain of Morbius would easily fit 3 /4 Vinyl LPs. seems to command a large fee when found on certain websites )

      There were a selection of Interview clips as well on one side of vinyl from across his Time and after.Mostly from Radio and all released on the At the BBC…. series of CDs. but nice to have them collected.
