The Daleks’ Master Plan comes to vinyl in an exclusive first for Doctor Who

We’ve had a sneak peek and so are delighted to announced that Demon Music Group are bringing The Daleks’ Master Plan to vinyl, as both a standard (7LP x 12” Heavyweight Translucent Blue) and an Amazon exclusive edition (Limited to 1000 units: 7LP x 12” Heavyweight Splatter Vinyl), from Friday 15th February!

After the recent popularity of Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and League of Gentlemen releases on vinyl, it’s no surprise that Demon Music Group presents The Daleks’ Master Plan, a narrated full-cast TV soundtrack adventure, that stars William Hartnell as the First Doctor, in a battle against his archenemies.

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 before he and his friends are pursued across time and space by his ruthless, powerful nemeses.

From the eerie sonics of Ron Grainer and 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.

Written by Terry Nation and Dennis Spooner, this is the longest single Doctor Who adventure ever made for television. Linking narration is provided by Peter Purves (Steven) and the cast includes Kevin Stoney as Mavic Chen, Nicholas Courtney as Bret Vyon, Jean Marsh as Sara Kingdom and Peter Butterworth as the Meddling Monk. The film recordings of all but three episodes of this story are lost from the BBC Archives.

The prelude episode Mission to the Unknown is presented on its own single-sided disc with a unique Dalek (exclusive edition) or TARDIS (standard edition) etched reverse.
