“They are hostile, these Sensorites, but in the strangest possible way…” Demon Records presents a narrated TV soundtrack from the Season One of Doctor Who, starring William Hartnell as the Doctor. In the latest release in the Who Vinyl range, The TARDIS lands on board a spaceship, in orbit around a planet known as the Sense-Sphere. The Doctor and his companions learn the planet’s inhabitants, the Sensorites, have imprisoned the human crew aboard their own craft. The expedition from Earth is both unable to land but unable to leave the system. The Sensorites meanwhile blame the humans for the introduction of a fatal disease. When the Sensorites steal the TARDIS lock, the travellers must go with the aliens to their planet and attempt to broker peace between the species. But many dangers lie ahead…
