Demon Music Group have announced the vinyl release of classic seven-part lost Doctor Who adventure The Evil of the Daleks.
The release follows on from the successful vinyl release of The Daleks’ Master Plan. The Evil of the Daleks stars Patrick Troughton as the Doctor and will be released on 12th July 2019, priced £99.99.
In this classic adventure, first shown on BBC TV between May and July 1967, the Daleks are in search of the Human Factor. What’s more, they intend to use the Doctor and his TARDIS to assist them in their quest for universal domination!
Featuring a climactic battle on their home world of Skaro, the story also introduces Deborah Watling as the Doctor’s new companion, Victoria.
‘The response to The Daleks’ Master Plan from fans was overwhelmingly positive with great excitement for the brilliant new artwork and for the presentation of such a classic story on vinyl. We are very happy to be following that initial release with another gripping Dalek adventure.’ Ben Stanley, Head of Product & Marketing, Demon Music Group.
Presented across 4 x Heavyweight 180g pieces of vinyl this narrated TV soundtrack evokes another classic Doctor Who adventure in all its aural magnificence. From the eerie sonics of Ron Grainer and Delia Derbyshire’s theme tune, and the familiar ‘wheezing, groaning’ of the TARDIS, through to the sounds of alien time technology and the terrifying roar of the Dalek Emperor, the story is alive with weird and wonderful sound.
LP1 is presented with a unique Emperor Dalek etched reverse (Exclusive Edition) or with a TARDIS etched reverse (Standard Edition).
