The Daleks’ ‘Final End’ is to be reborn next month as the latest in the Who Vinyl range
Demon Music Group continue their popular Vinyl Who range with a new vinyl version of The Evil of the Daleks. The classic story is often considered one of the all time greats in Doctor Who history. More than that, it’s considered a lost treasure as only one of its seven episodes exist in the archive. But now fans can enjoy the original soundtrack in record form.
Broadcast in 1967, The Evil of the Daleks features the Doctor (Patrick Troughton) and his companion Jamie (Frazer Hines) on a quest to track down the stolen TARDIS. But it soon becomes clear that the theft is part of a conspiracy by the Doctor’s oldest, and deadliest enemies. The epic nightmare that follows twists and turns from London 1966 to rural England in 1866 to the darkest heart of Skaro, planet of the Daleks. Along the way the Doctor and Jamie’s friendship will be tested to breaking point. But they’ll also meet new friend Victoria (Deborah Watling).
“Sacrifice a whole world. A history, past, present and future? Destroy an entire race? … Yes, it may come to that. It may very well come to that.”
The seven episodes of The Evil of the Daleks sit across four heavyweight 180 gram vinyl records in translucent red. The first LP is presented with a TARDIS laser etched reverse. Linking narration is provided by Frazer Hines and the cast includes Marius Goring as Theodore Maxtible, John Bailey as Edward Waterfield, Brigit Forsyth as Ruth Maxtible and Windsor Davies as Toby.
