70s Doctor Who book audio vinyl created for Record Store Day

Posted Filed under

Stories and features from the celebrated book THE AMAZING WORLD OF DOCTOR WHO have been brought to life exclusively for Record Store Day, 22 April 2023.

Begun in 2008, Record Store Day is an annual celebration of record store culture. Special vinyl releases, live events and performances are planned.

With new sound design and familiar Doctor Who voices, these audio stories from the book of the same name will be released on vinyl in one-day-only sale. Dan Starkey (Strax), Louise Jameson (Leela) and Geoffrey Beevers (the Master) lend their vocal talents to these weird and wacky stories from the pages of the famous vintage book.

The Amazing World of Doctor Who

First published in 1976, THE AMAZING WORLD OF DOCTOR WHO thrilled fans with short stories and strips featuring the Fourth Doctor, Sarah and Harry in brand new adventures. It also supplied the low-down on the Doctor’s past history and some of the foes he’d encountered to date.
