Out Now: Death and the Queen on HMV Exclusive Vinyl

Head to your local HMV to find a new vinyl edition of Doctor Who: Death and the Queen starring David Tennant and Catherine Tate as the Tenth Doctor and Donna Noble respectively. This exclusive collaboration follows the sell-out success of Big Finish’s limited edition Doctor Who stories on vinyl records in HMV last year.

Death and the Queen is out as a numbered limited edition of 1,250, on clear vinyl – only available in the UK. Here’s the synopsis:

Donna Noble has never been lucky in love. 

So when, one day, her prince does come, she is thrilled to have the wedding of all weddings to look forward to. Though the Doctor isn’t holding his breath for an invitation. And her future mother-in-law is certainly not amused. 

But on the big day itself, Donna finds her castle under siege from the darkest of forces, marching at the head of a skeleton army. 

When it looks like even the Doctor can’t save the day, what will Queen Donna do to save her people from Death itself?

The Tenth Doctor Adventures: Death and the Queen is written by James Goss and was nominated for the best Audio Drama in the 22nd annual Audie Awards.

In our review, we said:

“Tennant and Tate’s friendship off-screen has always meant that the bond between the Doctor and Donna has been consistently filled with scathing quips and friendly jibes that feel so familiar as if no time has passed since we last saw them on screen together. Indeed, even hearing the theme music gallop through my headphones stirred a sense of nostalgia that made me feel like the pair had never been away.”

The Tenth Doctor Adventures: Volume 1 was released as a limited edition book-sized CD box set and download in 2016, and also on standard CD the following year. It includes Death and the Queen and two further Tenth Doctor tales.
