Two limited edition vinyl titles from Big Finish will be released next month, exclusive to Sainsbury’s and HMV.
Doctor Who: Cold Vengeance, starring David Tennant and Billie Piper, will be available from 5th October 2018, and will be the second Big Finish vinyl that Rose Tyler has appeared in following her debut in Infamy of the Zaross earlier this year. You’ll be able to find limited quantities of this title in MV stores across the UK.
In case you missed it on CD, here’s the synopsis:
The TARDIS arrives on Coldstar, a vast freezer satellite, packed with supplies to feed a colony world.
But there are cracks in the ice, and something scuttles under the floors. Soon, Rose and the Doctor encounter robots, space pirates and… refuse collectors.
As Coldstar’s tunnels begin to melt, an even greater threat stirs within. An old enemy of the Doctor puts a plan into action – a plan for retribution.
Nobody’s vengeance is colder than an Ice Warrior’s.
Cold Vengeance can also be purchased from the Big Finish website, albeit as a download, or as part of the Limited Edition version of The Tenth Doctor Adventures Volume Two.
Sainsbury’s will further release Doctor Who: Zygon Hunt starring Tom Baker and Louise Jameson on 19th October 2018.
This is a pressing of the all-cast drama originally released on CD in 2014. Here’s the synopsis:
On the jungle planet Garros, Earth Forces Knight Commander-in-Chief Greg Saraton and his team are hunting gigantic beasts, for sport. When the Doctor and Leela arrive, they are caught up in a web of intrigue where there is no clear friend or foe.
What is Saraton’s vital connection with Earth’s Solar System’s Defence Shield? Why are the giant reptilian birds of Garros attacking? What terrible secret lurks deep within the trees?
Before the truth can be revealed, a heavy price will be extracted and loyalties will be tested to the limit.
Tom Baker said:
“Well! I’m at the disposal of the fans who created me and sustain me. If they want me flat and round and vinyl and spinning too, well, I’m their Who to whit to woo.”
Nicholas Briggs, Big Finish executive producer, added:
“Mark your diaries because these are sure to sell out again. HMV and Sainsbury’s are incredible partners to work with and because of the previous demand they’ve upped the production numbers on each release. I’m delighted for us to be a part of the vinyl resurgence and very pleased that, like our app, we’re making it easy for people to listen to our stories.”
And designer, Mark Plastow enthused:
“Adapting the format for these Big Finish releases has been a joy – I get to indulge in two of my obsessions. I adore Doctor Who and I adore vinyl, and putting the two together makes the world just that little bit better. Art really doesn’t like being squeezed down to a measly 12cm, it wants to be big and bold, it wants to be on your wall!”
You can get Zygon Hunt on vinyl from selected Sainsbury’s stores on 19th October 2018, and/or from Big Finish at £10.99 on CD or £8.99 on download.
Both of these releases will be numbered limited editions on coloured vinyl, only available in the UK, and are sure to sell out very quickly!
