Demon Music Group’s vinyl record release of classic 1965/1966 serial The Daleks’ Master Plan is out now.
It’s been a busy time for fans of the legendary missing William Hartnell Doctor Who story The Daleks’ Master Plan. This year the twelve episode epic has already received an even more epic sixteen part sequel from Big Finish – The Syndicate Master Plan, starring Tom Baker. And only last week students and staff at the UCLan remounted the Doctorless prelude, Mission to the Unknown. And now an exclusive vinyl release resurrects the original audio.
The Daleks’ Master Plan is available in two editions. Firstly, the Standard Edition which comes on blue vinyl and features a single-sided disc for prelude episode Mission to the Unknown with an image of the TARDIS etched into the reverse side. Then the Exclusive Edition which is exclusive to Amazon and limited to 1,000 copies. It features orange vinyl and the Mission to the Unknown disc features an etching of a Dalek on the reverse.
Demon Music Group have even posted a special unboxing of the set to show off just how handsome it is. You too can join impressionist, Big Finish actor, and serious Doctor Who fan Jon Culshaw as he explores the contents.
The Daleks’ Master Plan kicks off Demon Music Group’s new Vinyl Who line, with the next releases confirmed as Galaxy 4 and Destiny of the Daleks.
Both sets are on sale from today with an RRP of £99.99. Keep an eye out this weekend as well for Blogtor Who’s exclusive review.
Doctor Who: The Daleks’ Master Plan Vinyl Release
In this classic 12 part ‘lost’ adventure, first shown on TV from October 1965 to January 1966, the Daleks threaten to destroy the fabric of time itself. In their quest to control the Solar System, they have taken possession of the devastating Time Destructor. Determined to stop them, the Doctor steals the core of the weapon. Soon he and his friends are pursued across time and space by his ruthless, powerful nemeses. From the eerie sonics of Ron Grainer & Delia Derbyshire’s original theme tune and the familiar ‘wheezing, groaning’ of the TARDIS, to soundscapes illustrating the jungles of Kembel and alien spacecraft, the story is brought to life by the unique sounds produced by the BBC’s Radiophonic Workshop .
