Pre-Order Now: Hornet’s Nest Limited Edition Vinyl, Signed by Tom Baker

Demon Records is releasing a very special vinyl boxset, collecting together five audio adventures — and signed by the one and only Fourth Doctor, Tom Baker!

Hornet’s Nest includes:

  • The Stuff of Nightmares
  • The Dead Shoes
  • Circus of Doom
  • A Sting in the Tail
  • Hive of Horror

These are strictly limited to just 1,200 worldwide — that’s 600 units available in the UK, 300 in the USA, 50 in Australia, and 250 for the rest of world.

An exclusive, frameable portrait of the Fourth Doctor – every copy of which has been individually signed by Tom Baker himself – is just one of the treats inside this stunningly designed package. And here’s the legend himself signing them!

An impressive, die-cut removable outer sleeve houses a hornet-adorned lidded box, inside which are 10 individual, exquisitely illustrated LP sleeves featuring full cast and credits for each story.

Also included is The Doctor’s Journal, a large 16-page full colour booklet detailing the Time Lord’s notes and illustrations from his battles against the hornets.

Here’s the synopsis:

When Captain Mike Yates is reunited with his old friend the Doctor, he finds him besieged by a powerful race of insects intent on global domination. As the Time Lord recounts his recent adventures across the centuries, it becomes clear that the fate of mankind is in the hands of the Doctor, Mike and the peculiar Mrs Wibbsey…

Presented across 10 x 140g alternating Yellow and Black vinyl discs, this full-cast audio adventure written by Paul Magrs stars Tom Baker as the Doctor, with Richard Franklin as Mike Yates and Susan Jameson as Mrs Wibbsey.

The supporting cast includes Daniel Hill, Christian Rodska, Michael Maloney, Stephen Thorne and Rula Lenska, and sound design is by Simon Power.

Hornet’s Nest is available to pre-order now, and will be released in May 2022.
