I’m in the latest issue of Doctor Who Magazine looking ahead to this year’s Doctor Who-related releases for Record Store Day – double-vinyl sets of the narrated soundtracks to Galaxy 4 and Destiny Of The Daleks – as well as taking a look at the recently-released massive box set of The Daleks’ Master Plan with a little help from a certain Jon Culshaw. There’s also a bit about Demon Records’ releases of The Hitchhikers’ Guide To The Galaxy and the strange history of Hitchhikers on vinyl, including a record with heavy Douglas Adams involvement that you may never even have heard of.
Elsewhere in the issue there’s a look at the remake of Mission To The Unknown, a whopping great feature on the late eighties stage play Doctor Who – The Ultimate Adventure (you can find a feature on what happened when I attended one performance and waited at the stage door to meet Jon Pertwee – as well as some thoughts on the politics of Galaxy 4 and what it was like to watch the recovered ‘lost’ episode for the first time – in Can’t Help Thinking About Me, available in paperback here or from the Kindle Store here), as well as contributions from Looks Unfamiliar guests Paul Kirkley, Steve O’Brien and Jonny Morris.
You can get Doctor Who Magazine in all good newsagents, or directly from the the Doctor Who Magazine website here. You can get The Daleks’ Master Plan directly from Demon Records here, but if you’re after Galaxy 4 or Destiny Of The Daleks, well, you’re just going to have to queue up on the day…
