A new deluxe vinyl boxset of Doctor Who: Demon Quest, starring Tom Baker, is on the way
Someone has stolen a key component from the TARDIS, leaving a bag of strange curios in its place. And so the Doctor and his housekeeper Mrs Wibbsey reunite for adventure. Each object leads the unlikely friends, along with the trusty Mike Yates, to a place and time where danger awaits. As their pursuer’s net closes around the Doctor, he realises the mysterious Demon is in thrall to higher power… Tom Baker is back! And this time he’s on a Demon Quest!
Following the success of the deluxe vinyl edition of Doctor Who: Hornet’s Nest, its sequel Demon Quest is getting the same high quality treatment from Demon Records (no relation). Doctor Who: Demon Quest is a second series of unique audio adventures starring Tom Baker as the Doctor. And it’s now on limited edition vinyl for the first time. Once again every copy includes an exclusive, frameable portrait of the Fourth Doctor, hand signed by Tom Baker himself. But that’s just one of the treats inside this stunning package.
An intricately die-cut, removable outer sleeve reveals a Demonic lidded box. Inside that box are ten individual, beautifully illustrated LP sleeves. Each sleeve features full cast and credits for each of the five stories. The Doctor’s Journal also details the Time Lord’s encounters with the mysterious Demon in a large sixteen page full colour booklet featuring notes and illustrations from this epic pursuit through time.
Demon Quest features a script by long time Doctor Who author Paul Magrs
This full cast audio drama is presented across 10 x 140g alternating red and black vinyl discs. Written by Paul Magrs, it stars Tom Baker as the Doctor, with Susan Jameson as Mrs Wibbsey and Richard Franklin as Mike Yates.
