Big Finish has already released the third series of The Tenth Doctor Adventures on individual CDs, in a limited edition boxset, and as digital downloads. But The Creeping Death is also available on beautiful green vinyl. The story sees David Tennant and Catherine Tate return to the roles of the Doctor and Donna as they find themselves in the infamously lethal fog of 1952. The historical event saw a combination of freak weather conditions and pollution flood London with poisonous fog. Ultimately over 12,000 Londoners died as fear and darkness gripped the city. But, naturally, the Doctor and Donna discover that the fog hides something even more dangerous within its folds…
One person sure to get their hands on a copy is the story’s writer, Roy Gill. “I’m a big vinyl fan already,” he says. “I share my flat with three record decks, goodness knows how many records, and one long-suffering partner – so I’m super-eager to get my hands on a copy!”
He regards the news that his story is getting a vinyl release as a lovely surprise. “Being asked to write for David Tennant and Catherine Tate was already a huge thrill, but how awesome to hear The Creeping Death will be getting a vinyl release too! I think this nineteen-fifties tale of a band of London misfits against whatever-it-is that lurks in the smog will work beautifully on a neon green LP!”
The Creeping Death
London, 1952, and a deadly smog envelops the capital. But something even more dangerous – and alien – is hiding within the mists. When the Doctor (David Tennant) and Donna (Catherine Tate) get lost in the fog, they find a motley group of Londoners trying to make their way home. Soon the stakes are raised as death creeps along fume-choked streets, and not everyone will make it out alive…
The Creeping Death can be pre-ordered on CD or as a digital download directly from the Big Finish site. It’s also included in the deluxe The Tenth Doctor Adventures Volume 3. (Also included in that set are No Place by James Goss and One Mile Down by Jenny T Colgan.) The vinyl edition can only be purchased from Asda stores in the UK from the 24th of May.
