Doctor Who Record Store Day 2019 releases announced

On Record Store Day 2019 (13th April) there will be two Doctor Who fully narrated cast TV soundtracks released – Galaxy 4 and Destiny of the Daleks. They will be available exclusively from independent record shops across the UK.

Both releases are presented across 2 x Heavyweight 180g pieces of splatter vinyl. From the eerie sonics of Ron Grainer & Delia Derbyshire’s theme tune and the familiar ‘wheezing, groaning’ of the TARDIS through to the bass thrum of the Daleks’ headquarters and their clamorous shriek of “Exterminate! Exterminate!”, these stories are alive with weird and wonderful sound.

Galaxy 4

In this classic 4 part lost adventure, first broadcast between September and October 1965, the TARDIS materialises on a doomed planet. The Doctor (William Hartnell), Steven (Peter Purves) and Vicki (Maureen O’Brien) discover two crashed spaceships, their inhabitants locked in battle with each other. In one corner stand the Drahvins, a race of female cloned warriors; in the other the Rills, hideous inhuman space travellers. The Doctor and his friends become pawns in a deadly game of strategy and deception. Will anyone escape with their lives?

Written by William Emms, the story presents a traditional morality tale with a twist. Linking narration is provided by Peter Purves (Steven) and the cast includes Stephanie Bidmead as Maaga. The final episode leads into the prelude to the epic adventure The Daleks’ Master Plan. The film recordings of all but one episode of this story are lost from the BBC archives.

 

Destiny of the Daleks

In this thrilling 4 part adventure, first broadcast in September 1979, the Daleks return to their home planet Skaro, scene of their defeat at the hand of the Doctor (Tom Baker) in Genesis of the Daleks. What — or who — have they returned for? It soon becomes apparent that ruthless scientist Davros, creator of the Daleks, may not be as dead as the Doctor assumed. When Romana (Lalla Ward) falls into the hands of the Daleks themselves, a life and death struggle begins to divert the Doctor’s adversaries from their self-proclaimed destiny.

Written by Terry Nation and script edited by Douglas Adams, this story provides 2 hours of joyful sci-fi entertainment with its sparkling dialogue. Linking narration is provided by Lalla Ward (Romana) and the cast includes David Gooderson as Davros, Tim Barlow as Tyssan, Peter Straker as Commander Sharrel and Suzanne Danielle as Agella.
