Well, the rumours are true. There is another beautiful vinyl release from Big Finish, Demon Music and BBC Studios. Doctor Who – Infamy of the Zaross, a full cast audio drama, starring David Tennant and Billie Piper will be available exclusively from HMV starting 16th June 2018.
This a re-release of Big Finish’s popular Tenth Doctor and Rose Tyler story written by John Dorney and directed by Nicholas Briggs. This record has a new cover that includes the latest Doctor Who logo and as with the other albums in the series, it is available in 180g vinyl – this time in bright yellow. Doctor Who – Infamy of the Zaross is a limited release with only 750 copies available, so you need to be quick.
This popular story also features Camille Coduri as Jackie Tyler, Rosie Cavaliero as Jackie’s friend Marge Ellmore and Beth Lilly as Marge’s daughter Jess. Guy Henry, George Watkins and George Asprey round out the cast.
“I’m delighted to see Infamy of the Zaross on vinyl, especially in HMV,” says writer John Dorney. “I’ve still got my Gran’s old His Master’s Voice record player in my house. Quite a prized bit of furniture, which has such a store of memories for me… This record renaissance is delightful, and I’m looking forward to listening to that beautiful warm sound on yellow vinyl soon.”
“It was such a special time for me, working with Billie and David on the TV show,” says Nicholas Briggs, who is the Voice of the Daleks on TV and executive producer for Big Finish, “and it is such an honour to revisit it with them on audio.”
Executive producer Jason Haigh-Ellery says: “Getting David and Billie back together was definitely on my bucket list – two wonderful actors who created an era of Doctor Who which is so fondly remembered and who brought a different aspect of the relationship between the Doctor and his companion to the fore – love, both platonic and unrequited. It’s great to have the Tenth Doctor and Rose on record!”
A spokesperson from HMV said, “We’re delighted to welcome Dr Who back on vinyl in time for Father’s Day. It’s just what the Doctor ordered!”
The Tenth Doctor and Rose have landed in HMV!
To quote the Tenth Doctor… “OH YES!”
Doctor Who – Infamy of the Zaross:
When Jackie Tyler (Camille Coduri) takes a trip to visit her old friend Marge in Norwich, she finds her holiday immediately interrupted in the worst way possible – an alien invasion! The infamous Zaross have come to take over the Earth.
Or have they? After Jackie calls in the Doctor and Rose to deal with the menace, it soon becomes clear that this is a very unusual invasion indeed.
The Doctor is about to uncover one of the most heinous crimes in the history of the galaxy. And if he can’t stop it an awful lot of people are going to die.
